One of the most beautiful city in the world. It reminds me of the Yu Garden in Shanghai that it can be feel the atmosphere of ancient Persia.

The old city of Yazd which has recently been registered on UNESCO is a perfect spot to go for a stroll and to get a feel for the region's rich history.Additionally,don't miss climbing the rooftops to get an amazing view of the wind towers.

It looks like a 1000 nights landscape you will like to walk and get lost in this maze of houses made of pise. You can go on the roof of some to enjoy lovely view. Watching the sunset in this environnement is a living dream.

You will see hot weather in all these cities, specially in Yazd, which is in the middle of desert. But don't worry, it's not as bad as it looks! Have a nice trip!
