Welcome to Northeastern Iran

There's much to discover here – and you'll need to come this way if travelling overland to Turkmenistan – but foreign tourists remain extremely rare throughout the region. Cities like Semnan, Shahrud, Gorgan and Mashhad are vibrant and increasingly modern, but don't expect to find many English speakers or even any Latin script on most signs.
