Tehran Travel Tips & Guide

How to Get Tickets?

Tickets can be purchased on site. When you visit an attraction, go to ticket office and buy your tickets there. Most tourist attractions in Tehran don't sell their tickets online. It should be easy to get your tickets once you get to the site.

How To Get Around?

The Tehran Metro is clean, cheap and an efficient way to travel around the city. Subway station names are written in both English and Farsi, though announcements are only in Farsi. There are also women-only carriages. The existing subway system has greatly enlarged but visitors will also have to rely on more expensive private and shared taxis. The city's buses services are cheap but there are no signs or bus route maps in English.

What Should I Wear?

Women in Iran must always wear a long coat/tunic over their regular clothes and are required to cover their heads with a scarf. It's the law, and not only for women. Men should wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts too. Make sure you pack these items before coming to Tehran.
