Tehran: Touring - Driving holiday

Modern and traditional, secular and religious, rich and poor

Driving in Tehran is certainly an experience, though whether one would want to make a holiday out of it is certainly questionable. Whilst you can drive in from abroad to Iran and subsequently Tehran, driving in the city would never be described as a pleasure with rife pollution in the air and generally hazardous conditions and obstacles to overcome. Add that to the fact that fuel is rationed and therefore ridiculously expensive all adds up to a holiday from hell. A driving holiday in Tehran is therefore, not advised.
