A trip to Iran is a "must" for every true adventurer. But, if you're looking for a bit of help in planning your journey, don't forget to check out these cool apps.
Over 5,000 years of history, a thriving modern culture, and a charm that cannot be replicated - Iran has it all. In recent years, the country and its people have largely been misunderstood by the West, but things are changing. Tourists are slowly but surely discovering everything this wonderful land has to offer. If you're enthusiastic about exploring the world, you definitely shouldn't miss it. Fortunately, it's not too difficult to find affordable flights to Tehran or any other major airport in the country. Let the adventure begin.
Depending on the languages you speak, you may or may not have trouble finding your way through the country. The best way is to make a bit of an effort and learn what most locals will speak by default. Persian (or rather Farsi) is the dominant idiom of Iran. It may take a while to get used to but, the more time you devote to it, the easier it will get. After all, figuring out the language basics will make your stay a lot more interesting and help you have a proper adventure.
Moreover, one of the best ways to experience Iran is to eat some genuinely delicious food the country has to offer. Fesenjan (a type of pomegranate walnut stew) and baghali polo (a rice dish with dill and fava beans) are something you should not skip. It's also good to mention gormeh sabzi and the scrumptious jeweled rice. Of course, we could go on forever, but we'll leave you to discover things yourself. If you need a few pointers - use Foursquare as your pocket guide - not just through bars and restaurants but also awesome shopping centers.
