alimjTop priorities should be Isfahan, Shiraz13:28
alimjActually depends13:29
alimjIf you are interested on historical places or other things13:29
farooghkzit is better to talk about iran there13:29
KingOfToastin the #iran channel?13:29
alimjI guess it would be fine to talk about Iran here.13:29
alimjCurrently the channel is not very crowded13:30
alimjNot a real necessity for another channel13:30
alimjKingOfToast: Relatively few people could speak English (or any other foreign language)13:31
alimjI suggest reading TripAdvisor articles13:31
alimjLot's of good suggestions13:31
alimjThere are also some nice and affordable tours (with English speaking guides)13:32
KingOfToastI think we will be getting a guide to take us most places. Is Tehran pretty safe to walk around?13:32
alimjTehran is really safe to walk around13:33
alimjCompared to many other cities13:33
alimjAir pollution is high in this season13:34
KingOfToastDo you see many tourists there?13:34
alimjI would recommend early spring13:34
alimjIf we want to compare to Turkey or UAE, the answer is no. Otherwise, yes. For sure13:34
alimjCountry has been trying to open the doors to get a lot of tourists13:35
KingOfToastA lot of people I speak to about visiting Iran think im mad for wanting to go.13:35
alimjNo. You many consult the British embassy in Tehran: https://twitter.com/ukiniran13:36
alimjAlso this: http://www.euronews.com/2016/02/16/iran-to-ease-visa-access-except-for-us-and-uk/13:36
alimjAlso watch this: http://edition.cnn.com/videos/world/2016/02/05/iran-winter-sports-pleitgen-pkg.cnn13:37
alimjAnd read this: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/14/travel/iran-tourism-sanctions.html?_r=013:38
alimjI quote: "five million foreign travelers visited Iran in 2014"13:39
KingOfToastIm really excited to get there and see what Iran is like13:40
KingOfToastI love experiencing different cultures13:40
KingOfToastWhat do people tend to do there on an evening?13:41
farooghkzhow u come iran?by airplane?13:41
KingOfToastWill be flying to Dubai and then to Iran13:41
alimjfarooghkz: British Airways is resuming London Tehran flights13:41
KingOfToastI think the flights start up again in July13:42
farooghkzso where does barjam go?13:42
alimjKingOfToast: People do different things on the evenings13:43
alimjAnd different cities.13:43
alimjYou have to consider the following: 1) Credit cards (VISA, Mastercard) does not work here. You should carry some cash13:45
KingOfToastI guess most people here when they meet up they tend to drink in bars or something similar. But since Iran is a dry country then you must do other things.13:45
alimj2) It is always better to exchange at exchange shops in the city rather than Airport (rates differ very much)13:46
KingOfToastgood tip13:47
KingOfToastwhats the wifi coverage like there?13:48
alimj3) Internet speed is very poor13:49
alimjYou can get 4G SIM cards but only at limited speeds13:49
alimjAlso many web sites are blocked (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, ...)13:50
KingOfToastah yes I read about that.13:50
alimjSo it would be wise to have VPN and/or Tor installed on you phone if you want to use them13:50
KingOfToastanother good tip, ill have to get tor installed13:50
farooghkzطرف میخواد بیاد ایران باید چقد بدبختی بکشه...13:51
alimjKingOfToast: May I ask, how old are you?13:52
alimjIf you look into right places, you might find young Iranians who will be glad to be your guide for free.13:53
alimjThey will enjoy to speak with a Native English speaker. It would be virtually an English class for them13:53
KingOfToastI think the person we are visiting is arranging for someone to show us around. We will need someone to keep us out of trouble.13:54
farooghkzkingoftoast, will u come here norooz?13:54
