Bus Tehran to Bandar Abbas (Persian Gulf)

This bus ride costs 10000Rials (10 euro) and takes 22 hours. Usually fot his big trips buses are very good quality ones, the same we have in europe.

People are just great as they try their best to be nice to you and make you enjoy the trip as it can get a bit tyring for som many hours inside a bus. We had many stops until we actually arrived in Bandar Abbas. I remember my self changing place to stand aside the driver as he invited me to talk to him, no Farsi cos i dont know, no english cos he didnt know, but a bit of arabic known just a little bit by both.

The bus left 9am from Tehran and got to Bandar Ebas 7am.

Tehran->Istanbul Bus, Iran to Turkey

This is the cheapest way you have to go from Iran to Turkey and its quite simple to pass the border if you choose to go by bus. I took the SimaSadar International Bus Company in Tehran Bus terminal near Azadi Square.

The trip costed 220.000 Rials for students, the normal price is 250.000Rials. Not all companies make you the special student price. 220.000 is about 22 euros for a 2 day trip on 2500km: 48hours!

For more information contact SimaSafar International Transport in West Terminal, Azadi Sq. Theran, Iran

This is another view of the taxi you need to take from Bandar Abbas to Qeshme Island. you have 45 minutes boat ride until you get to the island. If you look to the water you can notice dolphins or were it sharks?

From this terminal in the Southern part of the city you can get buses to all the southern part of the country. Qom 2000Rials, Yazd 5000Rials and Bandar Abbas 10000Rials. You also have buses to the border city with Pakistan Zehadan.

Tehran is very easy to travel around. Altough this city is huge you can easily get around with its easy to fint easy to get taxis and buses. Taxis usually cost around 2500Rials for a single trip, and public buses cost around 500Rials up to 1000Rials if you're heading the city outskirts.

Subway is also a very easy to use transportation and can easily and efectively take you from one part of the city to another just paying 1000Rials.

Motorcycle taxis

This transportation in Iran is one of the fastes and fights back the intense car traffic in the cities as you can get to places faster ust payihng a bit more than the normal taxi. These guys will pass everthing speeding so grab on yourself really tight to the driver.
The normal price for a short trip in the city will cost you from 5000Rials up to 20000 if you make 10km for example. I went from centre teehran to the bus terminal 10km away and had to pay 20000. For sure Tourist price but 2 euros for this trip was very cheap. Its also the most amazing transpotation adventure you can have while in Iran, please dont miss it!

Taxi boats in the Persian Gulf

This is the main transportation for local people in The Gulf. This is a very ast way of going at least 45 minutes to some Islands existing in the Gulf are both of The Persian Gulf and the Oman Gulf. It doesnt lok safe, and even with the life vest existing in all the boats you will still dont think the trip is that safe. It isnt. Some taxis are quite old and you will feel like going inside a sardine can 60km p/hour in the middle of the water full of sharks...
