Welcome to Iran

Welcome to Iran.   A fascinating country with an immense history,  and one of the world’s most surprising travel destinations.  From the ruins of Persepolis to the bustling streets of Tehran.  From spectacular desert landscapes to lively historic bazaars and charming villages.  Today’s Iran is an intriguing, complicated, but also a beautiful place.  With some of the friendliest and welcoming people you will ever meet.  In this video, I take you back to one of my favorite journeys, through a country that has long been a mystery to outsiders.  These are my 10 favorite places in Iran.  We begin this journey in Esfahan, one of Iran’s most popular cities,  with incredible architecture, and a welcoming attitude.  The city is filled with captivating monuments, delicate Persian gardens, and historic buildings.  Walking the beautiful bazaars and meeting the people in the streets provides a great introduction into daily life in Iran.

 Next Destination

Our next destination in Kerman, a desert city in the East of the country,  and an important stopoever on historic trading routes, between Persia and the Indian subcontinent.  While Kerman can be explored for a few days, most travelers come here for what lies outside the city.  Mahan is famous for its tranquil gardens and shrine.  While the small town of Rayen is home to the mysterious ‘Arg’,  an ancient citadel built more than 1,000 years ago.  We travel onwards to the Kaluts,  a series of peculiar sand castles, formed over millennia by a one directional wind.   Located in the inhospitable Lut desert, this is one of Iran’s most mesmerizing desert landscapes.  In the South of Iran lies Qeshm, the largest island in the Persian Gulf. 

Bandar Abbas

The island can be reached by ferry from Bandar Abbas,  and provides a great insight into local Bandari culture.  There are plenty of villages to explore,  But like in most places in Iran, it’s the people that you’ll meet along the way that will leave a lasting impression.  And that concludes my personal top 10 places to visit in Iran.  One of the world’s most rewarding and eye-opening travel destinations.  I hope this video gave you some inspiration for the future, or at least provided some new insights into this fascinating place.  If you enjoyed watching, feel free to give a like and leave a comment below.  Thanks for your support, and I hope to see you again next time.  Travel safely!
