I am wondering how public holidays affect travelers in Iran, regarding accommodation, transport, visiting sights (open/closed?), shops, restaurants, etc. Particularly I am interested in May 2 (birthday of Imam Ali) and May 16 (Prophet's Ascension).

This June I will be travelling to Iran with my 76 years old father. We will be independent travellers (he will visit the Iranian half of my family for the first time) and we would like to ask for a Visa On Arrival the night we arrive at the IKA airport, since, as Italians, we are eligible for it.

However, we have discovered that, due to his age, for him making an insurance for a journey to Iran is either impossible or very expensive (we have been asked up to 80 euro per day). So, I would like…

Dear all,

I will be arriving in Tehran this Friday night at around midnight on the Khomeini Airport.

Hi all,

I will be travelling to Iran next week. After spending eight days in Iran (way too short, I know) I will go on to Armenia and Georgia to visit friends.

I am interested in taking the bus from Tehran to Yerevan (via Tabriz) on either May 7 or May 8 which is supposed to take 22hrs. Some forums/schedules seem to suggest that there is a daily bus, others say there is a bus four days a week. Is it necessary to book the ticket in advance? Could you recommend an agency?

Alternatively, I could…

Anyone a good suggestion for booking hotels in Iran on-line?

This past week I've been trying to contact hotels, by email, through their websites, through their facebookpage without a single reply. One travel site send an automatic message that my mail would be replied within 24 hours, but even that didn't happen ...

We will be travelling in May ...
