Hello and welcome to our Iran travel blog. You will find all our Iran blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Iran travel blog because you are considering a visit to the Middle East, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to Iran. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Iran.
Although Mark has visited Iran more recently with work, his blog posts are limited to ‘back in the day’ reflections from his time backpacking in Iran in the early 1990s.
Our Iran blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
