We are three Swiss planning a cycling trip to Iran. We would like to cross into Iran from Armenia or Turkey. As we would like to start our trip beginning of october, we were told by the Iranian consulate in Switzerland, that it may not be enough time to get the visa before starting our trip. So as I learned that the VOA is possible to get on airports, I was wondering whether someone knew, if it was also possible to get a visa on arrival by crossing the border by land?
Thanks so much for…
does anybody know of a Sarafi at MHD airport that would be open on a friday?
We just figured out we'll arrive in Mashhad on a friday morning and are unsure whether the few rials we have left from last year's trip will be enough for the first day's expenses ...
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm flying to Isfahan next week and got some questions; Does anybody know the approximately costs for a Taxi from Airport to Pol o Park Hotel nearby the River? And is there even a possibility to change money at the airport (for sure only small amounts, e.g. for paying the Taxidriver) is there also a possibility to buy a simcard?

We plan for th first day to travel by train to Esfahan then to Kermal and finaly to Shiraz and later back to Tehran.
Is it possible to book the trains just a few hours before depating? Or do we need to book all in advance?
How are your experiences for riding trains in Iran?
So, some of my questions have already been raised and answered here on Thorntree, but some posts are/could be outdated or perhaps others may have different experiences/advice, so I hope you don't mind me asking again. Here they are:
- Euros or Dollars
- Also, where's the best to change money (especially at the airport when I arrive) Any advice on denominations (10/20/50/100 bill notes?)
- SIM card
- I understand it's easiest to get one right at the airport on…
Hey Road Runners!
I'm planning an adventure across Iran, where I want to go from Shiraz all the way to istanbul! So I was planning to buy a bike in Shiraz and sell it in Istanbul.
Do you know where and how much a bike would cost? Nothing too fancy but robust, needs to do 3500+ km well, I was thinking a second hand one within an affordable budget. Also nothing too cheap as I do not want it to break down every-now and then. Thou i love off-road, i was thinking on a road bike.
Thanks all fou…
