travel to Iran experience

Have you ever asked yourself why do so many people plan an adventurous trip to a foreign country but so few of them actually go on their dream trip? The answer is simple, everything is easier said than done. When most of us think of a trip, we see it so simple like it’s just packing and booking a flight, but when it comes to traveling to a new country such as Iran, the problems are a little bit more than that. In your Iran travel you should pay attention to so many things such as Iran visa, the question of safety in Iran, not knowing the common tongue, where is the best place to visit or stay, what is the best way of transportation, and so many other things that can make a memorable trip easily flipped to a horrible one.

most popular tourist cities in IRAN

Iran is filled with Historical, Natural, and cultural visiting sights and has 24 UNESCO world heritage sites, making It one of the best travel destinations for young and old tourists. But these sites are spread all over the country. In order to explore and experience as much as you can in your limited time, in this article I will count the best Iran cities for traveling, their visiting sights, and souvenirs.

Iran Attractive Places And Destinations

When we discuss about Iran attractive place, the first question to be answered would be: what is attractive? To some of us historical is attractive, to some luxury sights are attractive and to some nature would be the best point. Iran has many attractive sights that include all of the above. In this article, I’m going to introduce Iran's most attractive visiting sights that would seduce anyone to reserve an Iran tour.

Historical sights

Iran has around 2500 years of antiquity, making it one of the oldest countries in the world. If you are interested in visiting Cyrus the Great’s tomb or were he ruled (Takht e Jamshid), you should go to Isfahan. If you adore Islamic architecture and tile works, the most attractive place for you is the Safavid capital, Isfahan. In Isfahan you can see the Shah square, Khajoo Bridge, Vank cathedral, and many more. If you are interested in Elamite era and ziggurats, I invite you to travel to the Khuzestan province and visit Chogha Zanbil Ziggurat, the first Iranian UNESCO world heritage site. Or if you want to meet the Pahlavi and Qajar styles of living, you should visit Saad Abad and Golestan palace in our capital, Iran. Their mirror hall would astonish you and sometimes Iranian famous singers like Shajarian play concerts on those palaces.

Natural sights

Iran is a vast four-season country, therefore you can experience all different kinds of climates according to the time of your travel to Iran. Many tourists travel to Iran to feel the dusty sand under their feet in the hottest place of the world, Lut desert. In lut desert you can experience camel riding, safari, and the starriest sky at its nights. If you are into eco-tours and jungle camping, the Hyrcanian Forests (Iran UNESCO world heritage site) is the best place for you. Being very vast and unique, 180 species of birds typical of broad-leaved temperate forests and 58 mammal species have been recorded in these forests. If you are a fan of mountain climbing and snow recreations, Iran has the highest volcano in Asia. Many climbers travel to Iran yearly only to try their chances of climbing Damavand Mountain. You can also enjoy skiing on the Dizin international ski resort or simply enjoy the international ski challenges held there. Iran also has the biggest water cave in the world. Ali Sadr cave is located in the Hamadan and you can enjoy exploring this mysterious sight with a paddleboat

Islands

Iran has many beautiful islands like Hormoz with its red land and Ghesm with the best view of stars, but the most attractive one of them is Kish. Kish is in Free zone, meaning you can travel to this Island even without visa. Being a free zone Kish has many other advantages too, for example you can find the best stuff at the lowest prices. In Kish you can also rent luxury cars with low budget and experience water recreations like parasailing, underwater diving, Jet Ski, water skiing, and beach clubs. If you are interested, kish has one of the best dolphin parks in Iran too.
