A Guide to Travel in Tehran
Tehran is intense. Swaths of beige line frantic streets, sweating in the Persian heat. Glamorous women with coiffed hair under loosley laid scarves, wild colours catch your eye from the fruit and the clothes and the spices of the market, and drivers and pedestrians navigate around each other with a rather lenient approach to traffic laws. Warm and dusty, the atmosphere of Tehran hits you immediately. It's also host to some of the best house parties in the world, if you happen to be in the know.
The Shah's palace, relic of the decadence of pre-revolution Iran, glitters in the pounding sun. Stroll through the tranquil gardens, with bubbling fountains and deep green foliage. Grandiose glamour is interesting to observe, and it's worth taking time to understand the history of the Iranian revolution, and it's legacy amongst the modern Persian youth.
Check out the famous bazaar while you're in the city, indulge in some incredible Persian food and enjoy the atmosphere of the buzzing metropolis.
