Top things to do in Iran

A few of the beautiful sceneries of Iran for the ones who are wondering what Iran looks like and what are the top things to do and see there

2 weeks were not enough to discover the entire Iran, the iranian people, the iranian cuisine and everything I would have wanted to discover there. My friends and I therefore focused on the southern part of Terhan like any other tourist and it was worth it.. But I’ll have to come back, even if it was difficult as a woman (another article is coming on this matter). There is too much to understand and discover to stop like this.

Anyway, we’ve discover a lot of blue mosque with mosaïc, mud villages, old temples and also very good specialities and recipes.

 

2 semaines n’ont pas suffi à découvrir l’Iran, les Iraniens, la cuisine iranienne et tout ce que je voulais découvrir de ce pays. Avec mes amis, nous nous sommes concentrés sur la partie sud de Téhéran comme tous les autres touristes et c’était pas si mal. Mais il faudra revenir même si ce n’était pas simple comme aventure en tant que femme (article en cours, pas de spoiler). Il y a tellement à comprendre et découvrir pour partir comme ça…

En tout cas, on a découvert de belles mosquées bleues, village de boue abandonné ou non, de vieux temples, des spécialités culinaires incroyables et de très bonnes recettes.

 

Tehran

These pictures hardly represents Tehran, its crowded streets, the noise, the smell and how it’s polluted but I realize that I didn’t take that many pictures there.

Ces photos ne représentent pas bien Téhéran, ses rues bondées, son bruit, son odeur et sa pollution mais je réalise que je n’ai pas pris tellement de photos de cette ville.
