The 5 best Iran Islands

It’s an undoable chore to compare Iranian islands to one another and come up with a list of top five Iranian islands when all of them are entirely sui generis in their own lush eye-catching way.

Best Camping Spots in Iran

What’s better for changing somebody’s mood than a reuniting camping trip back to where we all crave so much; nature. As refreshing and self-reviving as that might sound, camping trips in Iran are not made for everybody and anyone who buys an Osprey Ariel Backpack and stuff it with the essential camping gears is not going to have the time of their life; a small misstep or bead of wrongly interpreted geographical information can end in a camper being chased by a roaring bear through the never-ending jungle in the north or a climber finding themselves drinking from a shallow spring while a brown mountain wolf is curiously looking down on them and thinking to himself, that’s a juicy breakfast for me and my entire horde. For this reason, and for you not to wind up in a near-death experience, we have gathered a list of the best camping spots in Iran widely approved and popular that pose no threats to outdoor adventurists.

Bus Rides in Iran; Low-key Fast and Furious

The only places that you can’t go in Iran by bus is across the deep waters of the Caspian Sea in the north – the Shomal area if you will – and south of Bandar Abbas shores, into the crystal-clear briny water of Persian Gulf, to the strait of Hormuz and famous Iranian Islands and free trade zones like Qeshm and Kish; only because long-tailed sea bridges like Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau mega bridge are not yet a thing in Iran and not because the Iranian bus drivers aren’t qualified for the job or their beloved coach-buses aren’t up to the task; trust us when we say they even face a fictional journey into the salty seas riding a long-hauled coach with a “can-do” attitude while repeating the phrase “Inshallah” all the time – meaning if God wills it, it will happen! These guys are professionals and that’s what makes bus rides in Iran an unbelievable example worldwide.
