Hi all,

This is my first trip report and as I saw there are not many Iran Air threads around I thought I'd create the most complete one. I am Iranian myself. I have a blog filled with Tehran pictures. More than 30,000 pictures of Tehran and keeping it updated regularly. Make sure to check all pages as it gives you a great tour of all areas of Tehran and you can get to know Tehran even better than Tehranis. Below is the link:

I'm going to post some sample pix of Tehran here as well.

Unfortunately our nasty government has a dress code for females above 9 years old and they all are required to have Islamic veil - Scarf and an overcoat when in public places, which is against the will of most people but you have no choice and men are not allowed to wear shorts or sleeveless shirts. I know this is so sick and Iranian people are very tired of the dress code but we have one of the worst governments in the world and if you talk against them or protest they'll arrest and execute you. So Iranian people stay away from the gov. as they have no choice over them and their life is so disconnected from the government. May one day soon Iran can see real freedom. Iranians are very friendly people and Iran can be a very nice destination for you to travel.

Tehran the capital of Iran, the biggest city in the Middle East with a metro population of 14M. A great metro system and has the most number of highways after cities in U.S.

Iran's Provinces and their capitals



In the map below I have marked main territories of Tehran, Northern Tehran, East, West, Central and South from Tehran.ir

1. Northern Tehran: Wealthy areas , Upper Class
2. East: Middle Class
3. West: Middle Class and Upper Middle Class and Wealthy closer to the North East Corner and center of the area (shahrake Qarb)
4. Central Tehran: Middle Class
5. South: Lower middle class, poor areas in the further south and south end tips of the city

Pix of Cameron Zigzali's Store Grand Opening in Tehran. Iranian ladies constantly try to fight the gov. restrictions by pushing their scarf back and opposing the dress code but it still exists.

Real Estate in Tehran is so expensive. This is Elahiyeh- Fereshteh area and one of the most expensive in Tehran. Condos start here from $500,000 USD to over 6 Million USD

Tehran's Imam Khomeini's Int'l Aiport (IKA) is located 30 KM south of Tehran. The terminal is OK but does not have much stores so it gets a bit boring but it's a fun and cool experience anyways  

In Tehran most European airlines (KLM, Alitalia, Lufthansa, Austrian etc) operate between 12 a.m. to 5 a.m. and in the morning and during the day you can see that mostly middle eastern destinations are covered as well as Iran Air's European routes.

First I post some pictures of the IKA airport- These are not taken by me but I'm including the source/credits:

As I said all european flights come to Tehran from 12AM and 6AM.

Wow! Very cool to see a place that most Americans will never get a chance to visit and rarely get to see pictures of...

The dress code is ironic...if you go to most city parks in Pakistan (where it is NOT required by law) you'll see more women really covering their hair...

As a religious Muslim friend of mine put it....if the government told you to pick your favorite food (say ice cream) and then MADE you eat it every single day...it wouldn't take long until you despised it....

I'm going to go see Part 2 and 3 now...

I think the airport was built by a Turkish company. Thanks for the great pictures. I am surprised you are allowed to take pictures at the airport.
Would like to visit Iran one day. Isfahan, Shiraz etc.

Politics aside...Iran is a beautiful country with beautiful people. That was an excellent report with some wonderful pictures.
The country appears to be quite modern to what us Westerners believe it is. I've heard that Iranians in general are very friendly and hospitable.

Hi Omidp,

This is a great series of photo's and information about Iran. These photo's give a really nice impression of a very unknown place. I feel tempted on visiting it sometime. Too bad there isn't too much aviation related photos. I will read parts 2 and 3 soon.

Tim,

Very interesting, loved the pictures, Tehran looks like a lovely city - I'd like to visit though quite sure the wife would not!

Great pictures of the Islamic republic, also what's wrong with the dress code? It's certainly more liberal than pro-western allies like saudia arabia, one should always observe local custom, no matter how annoying it may seem .

Hi Moe,

Many Iranians especially in Tehran are not religious and they don't want to wear scarf but because of the dress code everyone has to have veil. If people had the option most of them would not have the veil, Kind of like a scene in Istanbul you see people with veil or without veil.

Extremely interesting to see pictures from Tehran. It looks like a huge, but great city and your TR's makes me wan't to go there 

When is the best time to visit?

But with Iran air's 747 banned from the EU skies so I will have to go with LH instead

Wonderful pictures. The backdrop of mountains framing the skyline is fascinating. What amazes me is despite the massive size of the city of Tehran, there appears to be very little polution and smog. The treelined streets and parks help beautify the downtown. Hopefully the political situation will improve someday, as this looks like a great place to explore.
Thanks so much for sharing your photos.

@Irish Aeyes: You're welcome  

@SasDC8: Hi, Tehran is nice to visit all year round and even summer but the city gets hot around 35C to 40C but it's not humid, it's dry so it's tolerable  

@Carin: Thanks but Tehran gets very polluted many days of the year as the smoke can't freely move because of the mountains surrounding the city

Hi Milad,

How I love this Report  

I remember my dad telling me, that Iran was a popular destination, for Hippies back in the sixties, and especially the ones who loved to smoke weed! He also told me, it is one of the most spectacular places he has ever been, together with Lebanon, which also used to be a very popular tourist destination!

I have ALWAYS wanted to visit Iran, and I have many Iranian Friends, one thing they all have in common, is that they all seem, to be By European and American standards OVERLY nice and un-selfish! I love this Treat in a human being!

Also, Iranians are a very beautiful people, I must say! Kinda like the Scandinavians of the middle-east-Persian-gulf area  

It seems to me like a very beautiful and diverse country, with everything from super cities, beaches and ski-resorts, and im sure, that if that country was not under such strict and ridiculous government, it would be a VERY popular tourist dest. once again!

I must say,that the only thing keeping me from visiting is the way your government treats its people! it goes against my morals and ethics! Executing gays, and women who do not obey Islamic wahhabism is simply just too mind gushing for me to put my head around, it REALLY makes me mad! I can only imagine how much anger the Iranian people have against this regime from hell! I must say, that together with Kim il Jung, Ahmadinejad is the person I would most like to see vanish from this earth!

One thing though, that I do not understand is, that most Iranians seem to hate this regime, and the strict Islamic laws, and that these Islamic menaces seem too be a minority? Why then, is their no ANTI-ISLAMIC revolution? Are people afraid? I mean, if you out-number these sick people, why not start a new revolution? I know it is not this simple, but my heart cries for this beautiful country, which I once hope to enjoy the blessings off.

Kind Regards,

Daniel

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for your comment. Unfortunately our government is sooo cruel to people and if you talk against them or let alone protest against them they'll arrest and execute you just after our presidential election massacre last year that they arrested and executed so many protesters. It's easier said than done but no one dares top talk against them or protest since you may never get back home alive that way. It's such a shame but they are the worst

Great report on one of the most fascinating countries I visited so far. Iranian people can be very nice and friendly and the country has much more to offer than most people can imagine. Far more than it's only imagine in the Western world. Thanks omidp!

Great trip report! It is in the top of my list of countries to visit before I die  

Tehran looks like a beautiful city and I love the backdrop with the mountains! It is such a shame that the government can ruin so much for so many people.

Just out of curiosity: Do you know anything about the visa requirements for an EU citizen wanting to visit Iran as a tourist?

Hi Air Pacific. Thank you for your kind comment and visiting this TR. As for visa requirement I've heard that Europeans can visit Iran with no visa and in the airport they issue them one week visa but still you'd need to confirm it through the Iranian embassy. I hope you visit someday soon, it's such a nice and historic place. Tehran is more modern but other cities are moire historic

I dont know whats with you omidp on one had you're showing happy scenes and people from Iran under the Islamic regime, and yet you are living abroad and cribbing about the Islamic regime and running a kind of propaganda against it in your posts. In my visits to Iran I found things quite normal, it seems to me you're from the westernised class who must be suffering because they cant do all the prohibited things there like Iranian exapts are in skyscraper city site persian people thread and you want to bring all that to Iran, be grateful its not like when Khomeini came and the following years.

@777way: I just don't know what to tell you, FYI I have lived in Iran all my life, that's why I'm keeping the thread of Tehran running with my info about all parts of Tehran and YES our government sucks no matter what you say, living under their strict rules is not fun at all and when you come to Iran for vacation it's not comparable to living there. Most Iranians are not religious and you think only the ones who are westernized are religious but in Iran more than half of the ones that look religious are faking it since that way they can work in gov. offices etc, so don't act like you know everything about Iran.
Please don't drag these arguments further as this is not a political thread.

@infinit: Thanks very much  

@SQA: Thank you

Hi Omidp,

I seem to have this vice. I want to go to all places us yankees are not supposed to go. ie cuba and Iran. I keep reading how friendly the people are and I believe it. Tehran looks very modern and quite wealthy. It is pecular that a city which gets so hot in the summer has snow in the winter. What other intersting points would you recommend in the country - north south east west? Is is possible under certain circumstances for us to visit? Thx. Is there an email on your site? I couldnt find one.

Wow, this is a great report! Its fascinating to see such images of the country and how wealthy and well off it really looks. When I saw the pictures I could not wrap my head around the fact that people really get oppressed in a place that looks so rich and well to do. I would love to visit someday, hopefully when the political situation improves. Really interesting report, thanks for sharing!  

I am living in Utah USA right now, and some people have told me a joke about skiing in Utah, they say "Alta (a small ski-resort town in Utah) has the best snow on earth - except Iran" Really interesting. I know the snow here really is extremely good (cant wait for ski season) but I would love to do some back-country skiing in Iran someday. Thanks again for sharing!

I have to say; if Airnetters & plane spotters ran the world, it'd be a much happier place!

@Planethunter: Thanks very much  

@Hamster: Thank you so much, Iran has very diverse regions climate wise, north by the Caspian sea is heavenly beautiful and green, Central Iran is filled with desserts and West with mountains as well as central. Iran is very fun and safe to visit and you can apply for visa in the Iranian Interest Section in Washington D.C. their website is daftar.org.
Let me know if you have any other questions and sorry for may late reply.

@Flyorski: Thanks very much, only in Tehran we have 3 major ski resorts that are well known internationally too, you can check their info online perhaps wikipedia, their names are Tochal, Dizin and Shemshak  

@HowSwede: I totally agree with you

Great and interesting to see some more about Tehran, I'm going to find parts 2 and 3 straight away!
Come with me, there's a place I want you to see, where the leaves are dark, I've got a hiding place in central park.

Wow! Very cool to see a place that most Americans will never get a chance to visit and rarely get to see pictures of...

Tehran used to have a big american population (before 1970s)(about 50000 americans).
Don't be WOWed out by WOWs A330 ;) ;)
