Hello! Today we’ll talk about Iran, as an object to travel. Before arriving in Iran, I was faced with
the fact that information on the Internet About it a little, and even video
can be counted on the fingers. Hitchhikers and free
travelers are just beginning Actively to tread the path. I decided to fix the universal
injustice and record this video Gathering all the necessary
information before a trip to Iran I stayed there for just over two months
and I have something to tell you. I have been practicing and almost penniless budget travel, So on this will emphasize, Stories about expensive hotels and fancy entertainment From me will not
wait, it’s not me. By law, alcohol is banned in Iran (Punishment for drinking – 80
lashes, and it’s not a joke) Women are obliged to
cover their heads, Local and forbidden to host foreigners at home. But in fact, I drank alcohol with the girls without headscarves, Swimming naked in the Gulf and slept many times local. If you call yourself a traveler, But has not been in the Islamic Republic of Iran (That’s the official name of the State), Then take your backpacks and immediately
go to this wonderful country! Eeeee where are you going? Well, not in
the literal sense of the same! Sit down, sit down. Video screening
and feel free. Iran is a huge, interesting, diverse country There is everything Green beautiful mountains with waterfalls and clean water Dry desert Persian Gulf, the Indian Ocean, the Caspian Sea Climate in different regions differs considerably And it is also Iran, yes Journey through the country, you can devote at least half a year As Iran – a multinational country Here live Kurds, Arabs, Azeris, Baluchis And, of course, various types of the titular nation – Persians Our great Arab family Unites these people is that they are all unreal hospitable Did not have time to drive off from one food to another how come Do not even want to eat, you still have Have, yes Start from the beginning – a visa Iranian consulate characterized
in that the rules have changed As the mood of pregnant women.
Now we’ll try Let’s clear it.Uff … It is possible to obtain a visa at the airport upon arrival. Worth it either 70 either 80 euros
previously granted for two weeks With an option to renew for
two more, now it seems Would start issuing a month with
the right to two extensions On each month. For the citizens
of Russia have recently appeared The possibility of obtaining a
visa on the ground border crossing From Armenia to Iran,
if arrive before 5 pm. 40 euros a month, with an option
to extend for another two. About the possibility of obtaining
visas for citizens of the ground Other countries did not yet know.
Visas are obtained Now on visas which have been obtained in advance at the embassy or consulate They can be renewed three times for a month each extension Traditionally, the easiest way to open Iran Visas to Georgian Batumi and
Turkish Trabzon. In other Places require a reference
code by the Iranian tourism Agency, which is a kind
of invitation from The Iranian Foreign Ministry. This
is costly both in money and in time So, better head to Trabzon Or Batumi. As for the first
option to say exactly nothing I can not, but about Batumi
and is ready to share its own Experience. It all was
very simple: only need Only a passport, one photo, 60
euros (for citizens of Ukraine) And completed application form. And
the profile is very simple, we have Not filled with information
about hotels where the alleged Going to stop, they did
not indicate itinerary. Producing of visa took only
2 working days, 4 days in total Waiting Iranian visas, all clearance took us 1.5 hours Receive the application form,take a pictures, to pay 60 euros, fill in the form Consul very nice, adequate man True, when I made a mistake in the application, he hit me on the head with a shovel I now have a lump, very painful So do not make mistakes in the questionnaire Actually I blasted the wall or ceiling… Term – 14 days, with a corridor 3
three months. The visa is valid From the date of issuance. Those.
in our case it was any segment Two weeks in the time interval
from 1 to May 1 fervalya – Gamarjoba, genatsvale… Here’s how… even failures were ..? I understand, thank you for the information, bye. News from Batumi there has changed Consul and receiving complicated visa.
Reference code They still do not require a
visa but the production time Increased and even the failures
were recorded. In general Nothing lethal, still
Batumi – one of the most Easiest places to get a
visa, just got a little Harder. Well, it’s Iran.
That’s what I said check Date information
before traveling. Now to extend the visa.
It is simple. In the department Migration Police, in
any, let our words, Regional center, which is
in Iran, there are 31. This is the idea. In fact, all a little different But for example in Semnan denied me And they said that this is not engaged.
Well, it’s a small town And completely without foreigners.
In the big cities of the other Problem – migrant workers from
Pakistan and Afghanistan, Create a queue. But often,
white Messrs passed Queue. there need
to come at the last Or penultimate day of
validity before renew They usually refuse.
They say that one day of delay Allowed, but I would
recommend checking out. Weekend in Iran
Thursday and Friday. Thursday sometimes working, sometimes a short day, but Friday is always off It should be an extension of 345,000 rials.
In addition to money were needed photos And completed application form.
I extended twice In Yazd, Sari. In Yazd took two
photos, one in Sari enough, True love there and
filled me themselves. Hotel would need to specify
in Yazd where I was staying, Had to urgently to google
and enter the first Horrible, Sari such stupid
questions are not asked. Iran – Islamic Republic,
which means that he lives Under Sharia law. Women with 13y.o.
obliged to go with Head covered in a scarf,
winter can be a cap, only Would head was covered, the
priest must be hidden, Open shoes allowed. In fact, most women do
not like this rule, They wear a scarf only
because it is necessary Under the law, sometimes it barely
covers the top of the head, in the field Where there is no police, for
example in homes, they are not shy Walk in shorts and bare-headed,
in the presence of others Men. In the cities, it is almost
without exception, in villages such as Happens less often, the people there
are more religious. They say that The cabin as soon as
they take off from Iran, most Persian women
immediately remove the scarves. By law, an Iranian woman Can only occur in the
presence of 3 men in public – Father, husband, brother. In
fact, the police never stops Heterosexual couples for the verification
of documents with a view to establishing Their relationship. Even if the
couple takes a room in a hotel, No one will say anything,
at least for foreigners – Exactly.
If you travel a couple Man + woman, it is better to
introduce my brother, and Sister or husband and wife.
For the Iranians, the couple is not composed Married heterosexual or
just friends who travel Together – is savagery,
even perversion. You may Nothing to say, but I thought for sure.
This is the case when False for the benefit – both for
you and for the psyche of Iranians The first three weeks in Iran I was traveling
with a fellow traveler, and said first That we are brother and sister, but when
we came across the English-speaking to ask and
started our family had Invent on the fly, such
as to unite our life and Lie even more. It was a
difficult and unpleasant, so Later we submitted a husband
and wife, it became much Easier.
By law, alcohol in Iran Prohibited, but in reality,
people chase moonshine, there Illegal courier delivery
of alcohol on a call Your house will bring vodka, whiskey,
without any problems. Special Popular Ukrainian vodka.
By law prohibited foreigners Remain in the homes of the local, but
in reality, the Iranians are very Willingly invite
travelers to visit. Of all the countries I have
visited – in Iran easiest Find free accommodation.
Hitchhiking, Walking around the city you
will often be invited to tea, And there and for lunch / dinner and
overnight. Sleep is usually Iranians On the floor – a floor necessarily
paved with carpets, mattresses Guest they always shaft.
For two months in Iran, On the bed I slept only four.
Twice one Bed was a sofa.
Iranians sooooo friendly People, but sometimes too much.
Especially in small towns And villages. We have already complained
about this in a previous video. Are you often can handle Like a small child,
walking your shadow. If you say you want
to have finally go on Track and go hitchhiking,
it will look for them A suicide attempt, you
will always try to “Save”. The argument “I have a
year in the journey and always So I go “is not an argument for them.
There have been cases, I seemed to be the man
explained his style of travel, He would not let me STOP
vodinochku because, with In his view it is dangerous,
he said that stop me Car, then came his friend,
another, and another. And so We are standing on the sidelines of the
crowd and they’re trying to stop me Car. After some time,
come to the conclusion, It’s impossible, no one stops.
I’m trying to Hint that maybe it’s
because the five of us Men, and if I had one, I
would have stopped long ago. Nooo, it’s not because of that,
we just can not be traveled, Can have in Europe, and can be, but
we just do not. But is it worth Only some miracle to separate
from the company and the machine Miraculously stopped.
Ie Iranians are genuinely trying to Help you, but in doing so only in the way.
And here’s a very Difficult to get rid of the man
and not to offend him. Most Better reception – this is to
say that I’ll walk, yeah, I I know that before the next
city 100 km, I want to go Their walking, moving a kilometer and a
half, you can safely start the foot. Next, if you are invited
to spend the night, Raschityvaete and you dine,
socialize a bit and go Sleep – in vain. Often you
only foreigner whom they Seen in my life. You will be
served fruit, tea, dinner, again Tea, fruit again. In the process
of all the neighbors gathered and Relatives all have to
do with the photo you Iranians love to be photographed.
500 pictures for the evening – not the limit. Such tea may take
several hours till late Night. You will be asked a
lot of questions, then you Do not speak Farsi, but
they do not speak English, Not a barrier. At first, it’s
fun, but 3-4 of the campaign Guests in a row and you would
prefer to spend the night somewhere Tent, the main thing that people without.
Especially hard In this plan you will have
if you find yourself in Iran During Novruz – the
local New Year New Year in Iran decided to put seven things, Who at presidskom language begin with the letter “s” It all starts with “s” It falls at the end of March and is celebrated for 2 weeks. 2 weeks in Iran output Gain several kilograms of weight very easily at this time. Hitchhiking each driver
of the second car is you Inviting home, we even
had cases that we Almost violently imported
home, shut the gates, Planted and fed. Trying to
explain that half an hour Back previous car
driver you are fed up Blade to nothing lead.
You will be food stuff, If you refuse a few times –
it is useless. Those. if You have to really climb,
you 9 times insistently Offer food, you refuse to
9 times, then every 10 Can break down and say,
well, I’ll just eat Stop bothering me. Sometimes it is
very difficult for them to resist, Very much they are persistent,
it is called tarof. You have come to Iran, you
are all invited to dinner, Overnight, the market sellers
refuse to take with you Money by offering free goods?
Do not flatter yourself, Maybe it tarof.
Just I want to note that Iran is unrealistic
welcoming country, And most locals are
sincerely want to invite You visit. But not always.
It is on such occasions Today and we’ll talk.
Tarof – this is such a special Form of “politeness” is inherent,
probably only the Persians. In Iranian culture decided
to offer something to his Interlocutor openly,
while waiting for him Failure. Those. everything is
understood, but continue to follow Laws of courtesy and
play comedy, such as: – Hussein, what is
your camel beautiful! – You want – you take yourself,
my dear nephew, my employee Neighbor – No thanks,
it is not necessary – No, take – No, thank you – Well, it is not necessary, so it is not necessary.
Comes to the ridiculous. For example I bought his flip
flops on the market. – How much?
– 250 – Expensive – OK, 200 – Okay, take a wrap, it gives me Package, I reach 200
thousand to him – No, it is not necessary, take the case.
That is the dude went to the auction, I threw me fifty dollars,
and now “refuses” to take Money. I had no desire to
play these games, I just I left the money and left, although
in theory I should have said: – Take-take, sir – Yes
you, kind stranger, I do not need your money – I insist! Take!
– Well thank you. The circus, is not it? But it’s
part of their culture, personal Do. Well, with all the
obvious example of this, But more often than not you see
if you seriously something Offer or it tarof.
Very often the Iranians, Quite sincerely beckoning
you to visit and enjoy your Visit the children. By
agreeing to offer a person, Who invited you to be
polite, not implying Is in fact, you put him and,
in the future, yourself In an awkward position.
We had such a case. Later, in an interview, we learned
that “of course, you have to had to give.” Well ohrenet
where we knew you would Least winking eye when
making such proposals, Polite you are ours!
Or another example. Driver, Through its English-speaking
friend on the phone invites I visit. This colorfully
painted me one that It, the driver in the sense that
it will be very glad to invite me For the night, this is no problem
it will not be, on the contrary, It will be incredibly happy
about his wife feed me Finest Iranian dishes
and all that in this Plan. It has so many nice and
said I was, at that time Already experienced
iranoved, had no doubts in His sincerity and without
hesitation accepted his offer. Returned tube driver and
see his reaction that It is not very much and happy
with my answer. Then this Charming man in his truck
started to catch up Other trucks and try my fuse.
As a result, transplanted One of these with an argument
he goes farther than I, you Better.
So how do you distinguish the real Offer from create fake?
You have to be a bit of a psychologist And have experience in dealing with the
Iranians, and sometimes can be understood by Man what he meant
in fact, but most Main and most reliable way – FAILURE.
If failure after 2/3 (Not sharp – for example, “yes
Nooo, thaaaaanks, I was in a tent I can sleep), you
are still invited, It is likely to do it sincerely.
You can directly Ask whether it tarof,
but you risk getting Answer is “no” out of “courtesy.”
One time, Iranian, seeing as I doubt, I said openly, “do
not worry, it’s not tarof”, But this happens very rarely. And that’s why the Iranians
so persistently feed so much Guests. Those. when I say, no
thanks, I do not want to eat Seventh time in the last hour,
however, thank you, not I want! They believe that
I actually want to eat, But I refuse out of politeness. Hitchhiking in Iran does not exist. Why you began to unpack the backpack? I’m telling you, sit down, I’ll explain everything I mean that there is no
such thing as a hitchhiking And the words of the Persian
language does not exist. I certainly I did not conduct surveys
or studies, but I think Not much mistaken if I say
that one of the 10 thousand Iranians will be able to
answer you what hitchhayking. The rest, even the English
language, do not understand this. No, you without problems
can ride for free, but Explain to them that you
are moving out of money On a passing truck, it is
almost impossible, I do not They cut one, absolutely.
This is surprising, because In neighboring Turkey, it suffices
to say one word hitchhiking, Otostop or in the local dialect,
and everyone from small Turkish boy to old granny
same age with Ataturk, each You understand better than Europeans.
Here, even if you are absolutely Will tell that the
English-speaking person Is hitchhiking and about the
methods of your journey you Can still try to drive to the station.
Farther The bus go?
Yes, damn who I just Half an hour told me that I
have a year hitchhiking. What is the fucking bus ???
Therefore, the Iranian hitchhiking The most difficult to explain
to the driver that actually You need from him and why he
should have to carry for free. The most necessary for the
word “majani” ie is free, “Pul nadaram” there is no
money, but this expression has One drawback – when you say “there
is no money”, they understand Literally and believe that
a person is in trouble, Left without a penny, try
in a foreign country Poke you money to buy
a bus ticket, ask Help from the police, in short
understand you correctly. But in the Persian
language has a great magic Word, which to some
extent can be replaced Word hitchhiking. Salavaati.
So it is like this. Do something for free,
in exchange for free Prayer. Those. do me a
favor, and I pray for You. But all this figuratively,
no one will force you to pray. In Russian this is about,
you can roughly translate A pure heart. The Iranians are
well aware of the meaning This word, smile gone.
Well either say, Na, Salavata, NAAA? pul.
Ie no man is free Not lucky, let’s grandmother.
I used two ways Hitchhiking now tell more about them.
First: Just go along the highway,
sometimes the car stops, And it happens quite
often, offer a ride, I’m using these words above
explain its monetary, Take – the food, do not take – say goodbye.
So explain: go on foot, Sometimes I drive up the passing cars.
So they understand, What is hitchhiking – do not understand.
advantage Such a process is
that often stop English-speaking drivers,
seeing a foreigner and wishing Talk. The second way to use Special paper for hitchhiking.
For help I Turned to his friends,
the Iranian hitchhikers (Yes, these do happen, but very rarely).
They are not only transferred My text, but as it
adapted it to local Realities, adding a bit of his own.
Watch the segment One of my previous video They helped me to make a sign for hitchhiking on Iran This is how it looks Is roughly means: Welcome! I am a traveler from Ukraine, I have a very limited budget So I do not use any public transport If it is not a problem for you, could you take me for free Direction… as you on the way If you turn off this road, just leave me on the track And I will continue the journey on foot I have no money, but that’s not a problem I travel so 9 months. Thank You Desirable are all pasted with adhesive tape Scotch but I only have such a small Printed 2 pieces, the English version of amputated And then where will the city of laminated tape I will throw off this text in their group VKontakte Section “Documents”, use of health Now need to write the name of the town to paste it You can write in English letters, you understand But I show off a little, and I will write in Farsi Fatal number – I write in Farsi City should get Nishapur Hitchhiking with this gorgeous piece of paper The biggest problem, the problem is to explain – there is no And this is really the best way. A reference to the document in the description Video. But be careful –
make sure that the driver, Is the driver, read the full text.
Because Sometimes they see the name
of the city, and went dadada. Either I had a case – stopped the
car – a husband, wife and someone’s One mother, gave the paper to his
wife, who was sitting on the Passenger seat, she
read aloud, it seemed Would all read me something at
the hearing is not clear nifiga. We arrived at the destination,
it turns out that it was not Family at all, and the taxi driver
and the passengers, who immediately Well screwed together. The driver
begins to me to demand money I’m surprised breed hands
and poke it into the text. The noise came running other
taxi drivers and police. Even There was one English-speaking
people, who told Me that the woman read the
text is not entirely word “Free” somehow lowered.
In the meantime, my paper Went from hand to hand, all participants
got acquainted with the text, I took my side showed the
taxi driver’s as well, All written what you want.
Course for me nothing happened, But the situation is unpleasant.
Hitchhiking speed slightly Different from Europe. Roads in
Iran are excellent, even the truck Often are driven at a
speed above 100 km / h Is the place where the machines pay for the motorway junction These boxes on the left – it’s not mailboxes as it may seem Is the place for donations Before a long trip and the drivers stop throwing money here to improve karma Here can someone Stopped on long distance Is the only barrier standing
invitations to visit, if You are invited to a tea for
10 minutes, it is likely This tea will grow into a complete
meal with all the knowledge Relatives or afternoon
nap, so better to Iran Go with time to spare in the
background and do not rush. Facebook, VK, YouTube,
Twitter and even such Website football ua Iran blocked. Least somewhere in Iran there FB – on pants YouTube have? Instagramm, Skype, viber, whatsapp, telegram work. Information for more youtubers: YouTube Creator Studio
app works fine, Strangely. Instagramm –
the only permissible Popular social networking
site that is not blocked In Iran, is very
popular, you constantly Will ask about the presence of the
account on the network and ask Add them to friends. The
same applies to a telegram, The most popular program
for chating in Iran. If You have Telegram and you
will distribute your number All people encountered
on the way, perhaps you Not the time to even read
all the messages, not the How to respond to them.
Instagram and it’s Telegram Nice, but it would be
desirable and normal Internet You say. To do this, there
are little tricks. Who I experienced this probably
already know what I mean. VPN is installed in your
browser extension that Virtually change your country. Just knock in the search
and select the VPN on your Taste. I recommend to install
just two expansion – is Such that one is working, the other
is not, and then vice versa. For the phone all the same
thing – go to the play market, Well or Apple Market,
can not enter anything Finding, it is recommended
to the programs that You need. Only install
and use on health. But does not accelerate much!
Internet in Iran very Slow, well, just very slow.
Even the road And limited. To contact
recommend buy local Simcard MTN aka Iransell.
Simcard with Internet Service I think 1.5GB monthly
cost me 10 euros. At first it may seem that everything
is unreal in Iran, but… Oranges 2000 I translated it 0.06 EUR Or 1.78 UAH 15 tetri or 20 kuruş It’s so cheap! Harsh reality of Iranian destroyed our illusions These prices are not in rials, but Toman Toman in itself contains 10 riyals All this was 10 times more expensive But on the streets and the shops prices
are indicated in Thomann. Only official Places such as museums prices are
written in rials. With unaccustomed It is very inconvenient. If you
are asked to pay a thousand, This means that you have to
give a piece of paper on which Written 10 000. Why is this happening?
The Iranians say It’s more convenient, they
reduce the number. For example, $ 1 is 30,000 rials, or 3000 Tomans.
Socrates So reduced, do not say anything.
Themselves Iran Money is very bad. Moreover, in two senses.
This is the most Cheap and depreciated currency
in the world and look If they are printed
on toilet paper, and Already used. Currency
no change in banks, Official exchange rate is
disadvantageous, this should be done in Exchangers or on the
street from me. In many attractions for
foreigners entry almost 10 times more expensive than for locals. Entrance expensive for foreigners, and in the English dub they do not always get True, the bad road
running charter which I was able to visit some
of the sights for free. We are in the ancient city of Persipolis Which is 3000+ years old Entrance for foreign white
masters here worth 200,000 rials Local – just 30,000 rials, it is common practice in Iran And for us, rogue, free Road thanks to my reading and writing, we have been here absolutely free of charge Booking in Iran useless Due to the fact that payment
systems Visa Mastercard And others do not work there.
With Iran recently lifted international Sanctions, so maybe soon everything
in this plan will be adjusted. In the meantime, the most
appropriate site to book Housing this one… This… That you are there! Bullied or what? In short a reference in the description of leave.
Now about CouchSurfing: First we had a problem
with it, I complained Iranian his first video,
all we were invited, took Request, but as it turned
out they only wanted us Even walk through the city, but not enter.
It was in Tabriz During Novruz, after these
problems were, in short It will charge for the New Year holidays.
Then in the large Cities I easily found
couchserfers that without Problems I hosted.
Except Tehran. In the capital, I sent still
quite a lot of requests, but All in vain. Actually, I
personally would recommend Smaller couchsurfing
use in Iran. And so you will always
be invited to visit. If Already evening, you are
in a small town or a Village, and you still have no place
to spend the night, which is rare – Go to the mosque. Firstly, in the
mosque there is always drinking Water south of the country, even in
the mosques are sometimes cooler With cold water, just the
same great in the heat. Even where the toilet,
unlike free Turkey. And The most important thing – the
whole of life in Iran goes through Mosque. Friends, acquaintances,
relatives, neighbors constantly Occur there daily prayers.
For Iranians Mosque – Is not only a place of communion
with God, but also with each other. You will notice there
and interested in your Person. It is very likely that
someone from the congregation invite You to visit, for dinner and overnight.
Or you can leave Spend the night in the mosque. Today spend the night in the mosque, the conditions are excellent, I’m very pleased Your religion has no meaning. If you are not a Jew, of course. Tent in Iran can be placed
in almost any park, if Where otherwise indicated.
During Novruz Iranians Travel across the country and all
the parks, especially in the South of the country at this
time just filled the tents! I have never in my life seen such a large number of cheap tents People put them in the parks anywhere Relaxing, having fun, the second week of the new year But there is one “but”! On the lawn
to install them is forbidden, only Paths and specially designated
for this place. for example I have a tent with a
single arc, and I’m sure Pegs to fix it in the ground.
Therefore, I am in flight As I’ve said, Iran Live under Sharia law, but
because 40 years ago, Before the Islamic revolution
in ’79, this country was Completely different. The
secular state without Imposing religion. Once people revolted
against the Shah’s tyrannical, Dropped it, but something went
wrong and the Iranians received War with neighboring Iraq
and the Islamic Republic. It is to me something very similar,
so can not understand what it was. Since Iran inside and
outside is different. At first glance, it’s tough
Muslims, but it is worth to you Get to know them and you
realize that this is normal, Modern humans. Generally, the
Persians, unlike the Europeans, Very funny, cheerful and happy.
And this is without Alcohol! Checkmate those who
say that without the booze Boring. Learn from the Iranians! Iranians when they met the first minute can talk niochem Such standard phrases: salam alaikum, chatori? hubi? Salamati? That means roughly: hello, how are you? All right? How is your health? These phrases are standard, they do not require a specific answer Yes, thank you, good They can communicate about nothing Templates Gesture around the world means
“all is well” and is used Including in hitchhiking
in Iran is about This. Although it is the significance
of this gesture has already Thing of the past, and many
Iranians do not associate it With something bad, but still
have a lot of people, especially Rural perceive it as before.
And we first Been difficult to adapt, because
during the years of travel I developed a reflex. If you do not
know the language and you want Show that all is well,
automatically displays. In general, the Persians of course
understand that in our culture it is A nice gesture, but
sometimes hesitate when you Demonstrate. This first
happens very often, because That habit. The next day of
the new year, we’re sitting In the family circle of Iranians
and Kurds and a touching Moment, the granddaughter of the old
grandmother gives a New Year gift, Grandmother povarachivaetsya to us, and
we are showing off a cute smiling… At the last moment we think better of.
In short Not much carried away
by this gesture in Iran Continue the traditions. Talk, I’m sorry about the toilet, it is also part of the tradition, Th. Toilet usually looks in Iran because, Close the tap water, toilet paper Iranians have little use, Well, you understand the process, I will not explain. So if you are used to wipe, stock up on toilet paper European toilets across very rarely Way a funny story about the toilet and excessive Iranian hospitality My fellow traveler asked the guy who took us from the street to his bed, Asked where his toilet. It embarrassed responded that it has a toilet, but it is the Iranian Well that this hole in the floor OK, I’ll pee in a next country Ie dude took us from the street, entered, And shy that he Iranian toilet! Go further, let’s talk about the beaches If you want to sunbathe on
the beach, in Iran this Will be problems. The
beaches on which to swim Not completely dressed,
separate – separate for men and Separately for women. But in
the Persian Gulf, especially On Qeshm island, you can find beaches
(well, there is the whole coast continuous beach) where there
are no people for a few Kilometers and bathe
naked though, as I I have done, fulfilling the promise. In the Persian language used the Arabic alphabet, it is very difficult, I spent a lot of Time to master it.
If you do not want to , Then do not even get to
spend a few months in Iran learn it. It is better to make an
emphasis on the spoken language. Farsi Elementary proficiency
you need, because That the English in Iran,
few people talking. If you already write a comment
“I was here in Iran (Mashhad, Isfahan) and met there a
lot of English,” then I have ahead. Yes, you
can, and managed to get On the English-speaking companies
in large cities, but in The whole country,
especially in small towns… Sometimes entire population of
the village was going to see Me and among them there
was no more or less English speaking. But usually, if
the Iranian speaks in English, Says usually good. In Iranian Azerbaijan
residents speak the local Azeri language, so if you own Turkish, you will be very easy! If you are invited to visit,
most likely in the first Turn you will be served tea,
fruits, then necessarily Rice, which is itself
in Iran as a very tasty Elsewhere in Asia. But compared
with other Asian countries Iranian food is absolutely unsharp.
After rice which Can be such a chicken, you will
again be served fruit, tea Irne in cucumber is a fruit More precisely, they usually eat it with fruit Go to the street food. The cheapest option –
a good old falafel. A rich, tasty, veggie and inexpensive.
It should normally Less than 1 euro. For an amount
slightly greater than 1 euro You can buy any sandwich,
for example Chicken Or liver. It looks weird Yes, it looks very strange What is it? It’s delicious! It was fodder beet That which we feed pigs And they say “delicious” Say “happy pig in Ukraine” Information about this shaft So all talk briefly, in a nutshell.
Yazd: very Atmospheric city with clay
houses such oldschool Style. The most beautiful cities in
Iran are considered to Isfahan With the famous bridge and the
Shiraz mosque with mirror And the most popular tourist
attraction near the town of Persia – The ancient capital of Persepolis.
Ahwaz -City totally Non-touristic, but it is interesting
that the Arabs living there. Very good and hospitable way Arabs.
Tehran – the capital, A huge city with a population
of about 10-million people. Qeshm – an island in the
Persian Gulf which can be Get a free pedestrian
ferry from the port Luft or pol-Bander. There
are smaller island, Kish, But it is very a major, with luxury hotels.
Bandar Abbas – The largest port, a lot of
fish and very hot. Chabahar – Indian Ocean and generally
kapets how hot. Tabriz – The capital of Iranian Azerbaijan.
Mashhad – holy Muslim Shiite city of
the tomb of Imam Reza. On Iran’s northern Caspian Sea
and very beautiful mountains, And the way it is the least
religious of the country. Well, it was in a nutshell
regions of Iran, if you want Know more – please refer to
the example or Discovery Can for example see my
previous video about Iran. Meanwhile, we go further. Most Europeans have heard of:
Iran? You that it’s dangerous, There igil, terrorists, war.
Unfortunately, many Believe the entire Middle East one.
Those. if Palestine and Syria’s war,
then the war in Iran, too. What is the opinion has to
do with reality? Eeeeee…. Nothing. Iran – one of the
safest countries in which the I have visited, and
I had to visit Many places.
The only region that I can be attributed to the
disadvantaged – a province of Sistan And Baluchistan and that it is
primarily concerned with the zone On which there is drug trafficking
– along the border with Pakistan And Afghanistan. And then, not
because you do something there Would face, so that the
local police will be Bother you for your safety. I picked up the car, it vidnli police Caught up with us, stopped Started checking my documents, the driver could not resist, went 15-20 minutes under the scorching sun Someone called something checked And this stupid thing of Iranian and Turkish police 2-3 minutes they look passport, visa, considering all And then asked: “Where are you from, what country?” I do not hesitate to call them idiots because they are idiots 3 minutes spindles passport and did not read the name of the country Here’s how they test the authenticity of a visa This rim generally pink Rub it and it becomes a white Then it must become again the pink Now it is white, they did not wait for it to become pink Blushed, yes Once they caught up with me and I do not want to sit in the car And here again the car stopped and the crap right there Go to hell, assistants crappy If you let go, do not hurry
to rejoice, possibly through Hour you will stop at the next
checkpoint and all 30 police officers That there will be, plus
the ones that you sdutsya Think to look through to
see their duty to your Passport with his dirty hands.
About dirty hands Is not a literary hyperbole,
really, after hundreds Checks my passport
pages have become much Dirtier. However, once
they released me to move Hitch-free entered
the bus, though, To be honest, I’d rather stop go.
As a conclusion I say: Balochistan region
is quite interesting, but Not enough to go
there hitchhiking. That’s all, if you have any
questions on Iran, ask Them down in the comments
below the video, if you Have anything to add
or deny write in Comments if you
liked this video, Like place for my efforts, if
you do not like it – put dislike. If this video

    Как хорошо и подробно ты все описал! Я месяц гостила в Иране. Была там сама. Если интересно,заходи и на мой канал, там Иран моими украинскими глазами.))
    И как же мне было странно, что никто не понимает, что я есть не хочу! Я выучила набор слов, типо "бохур бада" (кушать позже) и подобные таким выражениям. Но потом они еще чаще начали мне предлагать поесть, лишь бы я ответила им на фарси.))) Очень гостеприимны, мы всегда под рассвет расходились. Вот все, что говоришь, все-все-все понимаю))). Мне даже приятно, что я услышала, что у кого-то такие же ощущения. С понятием Тароф я не была знакома. Просто гостила у конкретных друзей, меня это обошло. И да-да-да, все село собиралось посмотреть на меня.)))
    Очень классно рассказываешь. Интересно, четко, по существу. Молодец!

    Не так давно был в Иране. К сожалению всего 6 дней, и не автостопом. Для граждан РФ получить визу не проблема, точнее, 1 проблема есть, как и для всех, что бы ваш паспорт не был обгажен израильской визой или штампами. Я даже снял видео как получить визу. Был в Табризе и Тегеране. вписался по каучсерфингу. Но тут был нюанс. В Табризе проблема с каучем. Вписали на 2 ночи за 30 евро. Ночей могло быть и больше, условие такое, что за эти 30 евро меня везут на экскурсию. Ну съездили мы на озеро Урмия, и в горы. Кормила нас мама парня, который занимался этим коммерческим каучем. А везде просто предлагали нам отель. Да, вот такие там правила. И он сказал, что бы мы не шумели возле дома, так как действительно у них нельзя пускать жителей других стран. Из Табриаз в Тегеран ехали поездом, очень комфортно, с едой. Всего ровно 10 евро. А в Тегеране ответил нам парень и девушка с предложение у них остаться. Остались мы у парня, он сказал, что нету никаких проблем, и типа можно впускать кого угодно. А девушка нам сказала, что не может у себя оставить, типа неправильно заполнила страницу Кауча. Но, она и ее подруга 2 дня с нами ходили по Тегерану, показывали достопримечательности. Да и билет в парк для туристов стоит дороже. Но она пошла и купила нам билет как для местных. И все, мы просто молчали, а она все сделала. Да и суть в том, что эти девушки изучают Русский язык, и с нами они разговаривали именно на нем. Что было очень здорово, так как я не знаю кроме русского больше никакого. Потом они нам вызвали местное такси по геолакации, сказали, что у них скидка, ну в итоге до Аэропорта мы доехали за 10 евро. Это очень дешево, так как аэропорт находится в 50 км за городом.

    Отличное видео. Была в Иране в 2014 году, в марте. Летела из Спб вообще одна, и без визы. Не знаю как сейчас, тогда можно было по прилету получить. Подошла в окошко visa on arrival , подала паспорт, взяли 40 евро. Гостеприимство это да, и закормили и спать уложили. Раз 5 уточняли как мне подушка и одеяло, не надо ли поменять :))) Туалет, правда, мне достался на выбор…был и иранский и обычный. И да, зафотографировали…..чудилось, что я инопланетный белобрысый гость 🙂 Про бухло…..не знаю где взяли, но угощали вискарем 🙂 Вообще, ту поездку вспоминаю с теплотой в сердце. Обязательно соберусь еще. И всем советую.
