I R A N

  • GlobeRovers Rating: 9 / 10
  • Buzz Line: "The most amazing people I have ever met!"
  • Eagle Eye: Caspian Sea and mountain villages in the north, desert in the east and central
  • Hot Spots: Caspian Sea, northern mountain villages, Isfahan (or Esfahan), Yazd, desert oases and salt lakes in east, Shiraz, Kerman and Bam in the southeast Ghashghai (Qashqai) communities in south - all over is amazing!
  • The Low-down: Mix and mingle with the locals and accept personal invitations. I have been to Iran in March 2007 and again in February 2013 and I'm blown away by the hospitality of the people.  While dancing and the consumption of alcohol is outlawed (even in the privacy of your home), don't be fooled by the government laws - the Iranians know how to drink and dance and more!  Go and enjoy Iran. It just may be the greatest place you have ever visited!
