Iran Travel

What kind of city is Iran?

The person who will go to Iran should know that the more than half of the country is desert. This geographical structure leaves its mark on the culture, structure, architecture and history. In that vicinity, a culture was born and stil exists.

The people can guess that it will be very hot when they go there in summer. You can go there easily as it is our neighbour. You do not need visa but passport. The people who know English are a lot. In the past, they were interested in American culture. Iran travel photo

Now, they are opposed to America. Because the important part of Iran people live in America, there is a relation between each other even if there are not flights to America. 35 % of Iran consist of Turkish people. So Turkish is spoken. Important of that is Azerbaijani people.

Another part consists of Turkmen people who came here in Otoman time and wait for us in Oguz Clan which is important part of the country in Eastern Anatolia mountains.

Is Iran an expensive country?

It is one of the cheapest countries. I can put it top of the list. Its hotels are cheap too. In other words, you can stay in 4-star hotel in Teheran for 20 or 25 Liras. Taxi prices are cheap too. You can hire a car and get around Iran. The food is cheap but there are not a lot of kinds. With the budget you manage your life, you can live three times richer than in Turkey.

If you get around the country by a guide, this may be expensive. You may not need because you do not have language problem. You can get around there with the information about Iran you got from books or magazines. As we go there in a Professional way, we use guide. When you go there normally, you may not need a guide.

You can find people who speak Turkish wherever you go. English or another language is not  compulsory. Therefore, Iran is a cheap country.

Is Iran a secure country?

You should not think Iran like the other ones, there is shariah. Therefore it is a place where they cut the one of the people who stole something and behead them. You have to wear  head scarf even if you are foreign.

Iran map photoI do not know in detailed but you have to think that the things you do in your own country normally can not be normal in Iran.

The rules are valid in every part of country. People can do what they want in their house. Drinking alcholic drinks is a guilt. We can not say that there is no pickpocketing but a little. You have to pay attention the other things.

The cities are homogenous and modern for both men and women. They are more modern than Istanbul.

How can we go to Iran?

You can go there by train, bus, ship or plane. We do not suggest you to go by car certainly. Traffic rules in Iran are very bad and the people do not obey the rules. There is no lane understanding. You can hire a car but going there by taxi is cheaper because the oil is very cheap.

You can get around all of the country by car in a cheap way. Because of punishments of the pickpocketing or another crimes, it is a secure place.

What kind of clothes should we wear ?

If you go there in summer, you can not get around there in shorts or a very short skirts. The women can wear mini-skirt on your trousers. I suppose that they can not wear short sleeved T-shirts. In the past they could show their wrist but now it is forbidden.

The political power can be sometimes hardened. They may not accept men to have hair gelled hair and very artistical face.  The one who goes to Iran will see that the only foreign is him. The women have to wear head scarf.

What kind of problems may we face in Iran?

In fact, you can get around the country in an anxious way. There are some rules, for example you can not take a photo comfortably. There are people who wear chadors and you have not to offend them. There may happen problem but it may be. Our guide was anxious.

If he whad been  relax, we could have worked in a more comfortable way. There are not a lot of entertaintmet programmes, Iran is like coronach country or it is a country as if it was mourning. You can feel Karbala feeling there.

When you open a Turkish channel and see everybody dancing, you see that there is a county entertaining a lot. The Iranian people come to Turkey and make shopping. They have close relations with Turkey. They are not unfamiliar to Turkish people as the important part of Iran consists of Turkish people.

Which cities should we see in Iran?

Mazenderan area in Khazar shore is one of the places you should know. You can also use domestical lines in Iran. The flights are very cheap. You experince such these things in a very expensive way. Its hotels and food are very cheap so you can plan getting around everywhere of Iran with a small budget. If you use highway, you can start with Tebriz then to Tehran. Tehran photo

There are some places between Teheran and Tebriz. There is certainly a historical value there. In eastern way, you can follow silk road and then arrive South desert. You can go Yezid and return again. They can take a flight and come to Kermensah.

In fact, for a person who works can get around one part of Iran as he can not have a long holiday time. If he is a student and is there for summer holiday, he can get around all of Iran.

Where can we stay in Iran ?

It is an introvert country – in other words they see us as bogeyman – but they do not do anything to people, do not eat them and they do not have negative approaches.

They love Turkish people, treat in a friendly way. We do not know them but they know all the famous Turkish singers, actors of Turkey.

As it has not got a tourism section, there are mostly hotels and Iranian people stay there too.

Cruise in ocean

Interrail tickets consist of acommodation, food and drinks and another private needs. These ones can vary from others but the approximate price is 1000-1500 euros.

When you think about totally, it may seem very expensive but when you think about the number of the countries to get around, it is very economic because transportation especially  train transportation isnt cheap, it is a very expensive price but when you think about the number of the countries to visit it is an economic price.

What does “Interrail” mean?

Europe Interrail Train

Interrail is a train ticket, a pass ticket and it is valid in only European countries. If you buy a ticket at full fare, you can travel where you want in all European countries by using this ticket (Interrail ticket). It is only train ticket and it involves one train.

Apart from that, it doesnt include acommodation, food and drinks and another service because it isnt a package tour.

It is a very easy and flexible ticket for using and provide people to prepare their own programme. You can travel as a group, you can be grouped as teenagers or adults; you can travel in 6-people group but interrail is a ticket that provides individual travel.

Where can we have information about the passengers’ experiences?

The people who traveled by interrail dont forget his trip. When they see a train, they get excited and want to travel by interrail. They write to each other and they have a writing group. They can consult everything they wonder. They have meetings once or twice a year.

The ones who traveled by interrail before  share their experiences with each other. They can ask each other more specific questions such as which hostel is more trusting in Italy or which one of them is more economic or how many t-shirts I need.

How can we get interrail ticket?

It is flexible and easy ticket. It is valid for 12 months. You can determine its time.

Interrail picture

You can get it whenever you want. You can get interrail ticket before maximum 3 months, you cant get it before 4 months. You can get it the last da yor the same day but generally we suggest you to get it before one month because you have to show your visa fort his. Passport number is enough to get it. They prepare your  ticket and give it to you immediately.

You can get your interrail ticket in Sirkeci Railway Terminus, their price is same. You can get it in 15-20 minutes if you determine the time you will use and bring your passport number. The shortest and easiest part is to get interrail ticket and the longest part is getting visa.

What kind of advantages does travel by interrail in Europe?

You decide where to go and when to go. Especially it is desirable for teenagers. When you get the ticket, nobody says to you that you will stay here or you will do that.

So the interrail users prefer youth hostels. Youth hostel are popular in Europe, in fact there are youth hostels in Turkey but it isnt very popular pr they arent known a lot. The conditions are like dormitories, you can stay in 6-people rooms or individual ones.

It depends on the person. You can stay in individual room or a room  for 2 people but when you stay in a room for 6 days, it is more economic than hotel prices because hotel prices are very expensive in Europe. You hire a bed, If you ask if  whether these hostels are trusting or not, yes they are trusting because they are popular. There are lucked safes where you can save your private things or jewelleries. You can entertain a lot when you pay attention some points.

What are differences between interrail “global pass” and “country pass” ?

Interrail includes all European countries. Morocco was in this list untill 1th of April in 2007 but there had been some differences in interrail system and Morocco is no longer in the list. Interrail tickets include England, Germany, France, Balkan states, Bulgaria, Rome, Switzerland, Portugese, Italy and Greece. (Not include Turkey)

Until 1th of April in 2007, there was zone system, there were eight fixed zones. While getting visa, you used to select one zone. You could get global one but by paying little you could select one zone.

Since 1th of April, zone system has been unavailable. You can get global ticket by selecting the day. You can take ticket for 5 days or 30 days. You can travel where you want when you get ticket for 5 days.

Which trains accept interrail?

Interraik include 2.class trains but the interrail users who are above 26 or under 26 pay extra over and can use first class trains. Apart from this, it possible to select high-speed trains or select wagon Inter rail travel europe photolit. These extra overts are calculated by finding the difference between the normal price and the other price, so they don’t pay the full fare. So they are economic. Interrail train in Europe is very popular.

Unfortunately, train transportation in Turkey isn’t first class but in Europe it is generally first class. There are always fast and more comfortable or more alternatives than fast and more comfortable buses. So when the interrail users get ticket, they dont have difficulty in getting seat because their alternatives are a lot. They generally use second class trains and the conditions of the second class trains are nearly same as the first class trains.

Trains are generally includes quad or sestet wagons. We suggest you to get wagon lit if you have a long travel. Then you can have a more trusting and more comfortable travel. The trains can be crowded according to the intensity of the season or they can be calm but trains are generally trusting.

You have to take some precautions. If you live in Turkey, you can’t use interrail in Turkey. You can use it on board. If you are a tourist who got this ticket on board – for example you got your ticket in Germany – , you can use it in Turkey.

Which countries does “global pass ticket” include?

It is valid for every country. You can get your ticket in 4 ways. You don’t select zone but day. You can get your ticket for 10 days, 22 days and 30 days. It is possible to use these tickets in all of European countries. For example, the ones got ticket for two zones such as G and E.

They used to get on the train in Sirkeci, They went to Greece from Sirkeci then from Patras Harbour they went to Italy by ferry and these ferries were free for interrail users. They could go which zone they wanted from Italy or If they wanted, they travel in Up North zones. They could travel everywhere according to time of their ticket such as for 22 days or 5 days and 10 days. They could go to England by using flight ticket.

Information about “interrail one country ticket”

Since 1th of April in 2007, one country interrail tcket was started to be used. These tickets are grouped according to the country’s place and popularity but the prices are different. The people who want to travel only one country select a country and they can travel the country for 3 days, 4 days, 6 days and 8 days in a month. Global pass and an done country passa re completely different.

As I say, you can select only one country. For example; you will go to France and you have a programme in France and you have 3 days but in these 3 days you want to go to France. Then you can use one country pass.
