An American tourist named Silvia Lawrence recently traveled to Iran, after her return she received several emails from her fans asking to share her travel diaries with them.

  • Find a host for your first night in Iran & then stop planning for spending time in this country.

With the 2 weeks visa that she has, it was impossible for her to visit all the Iran’s tourism attractions, so she decided to spend time with Iranian people instead of visiting this country’s historical monuments or tourist spots. In this way, she could know Iranian cultures & customs & obtain incredible experiences. You should always find a good host to provide you with suitable information.

  • Spending 5$ a day will be enough.

Perhaps most visitors want to spend much more money than Silvia in Iran but she only has 400$ with her & finally she could save some money when her 2 weeks travel ends. Iranian people makes taarof a lot. You may be their guest most of the time during eating food or buying things.

However there is an important point that every tourist should pay attention to it, foreign credit cards are not valuable in Iran. So all tourists should bring enough cash with them.

Generally, traveling to Iran is much cheaper than what you expect.
