Just wondered if you could help me in planning & finalising my itinerary for a very quick & short tour in Iran early October.
As I will have only limited time to spend in that beautiful country, I still would like to utilise my time the best by visiting the main sights.
I will be arriving to IKA Airport Sunday early morning aand since my "must-see" sites are located in the countryside, I am hesitating to visit Tehran Centre at all or just traveling to Qom or Kashan the same day.
The second day I plan to travel onwards from Kashan to Esfahan for the day, on day 3 travelling at night to Yazd.
There I plan to stay for the night or travelling the next day early morning to Shiraz and then spending another half day as a half day trip to Persepolis.
I will be flying home from Shiraz Airport on Friday early morning.
I know my itinerary is very tight but as an active traveller hopefully I could utilise my days the best by either using night buses or travelling early mornings with coaches to the next place so that I won't "lose" time with travelling. I am also aware of the huge distances within Iran, just wondered if you could help me.
As the public bus schedules in the given towns is rather in Persian, would you be so kind and let me know possibe late-night bus schedules departing and arriving as follows:
- Kashan to Isfahan
- Isfahan to Yazd
- Yazd to Shiraz
Also, could you also tell me the approx. cost for using these buses?
Regardig my first question: would you recommend Kashan and Qom instead of staying for a full day in Tehran? Is it maybe possible to travel to Qom directly from IKA Airport?
I would appreciate any suggestion form you!
