Trip Moments

YAO SHUN   
Today is very special for the Iranian presidents re-election ceremony, so the police are on the lookout in the accommodation building and are implementing regional road closures. The front desk of the hotel said that you better not go out, and it may be unsafe to have demonstrations by opponents. But there is no way, I want to escape from Tehran to other cities tomorrow, so I got the door to go to the station to buy tickets. Sure enough, all the streets are traffic police special police, almost all the shops are closed, and the market, the big Bazar, all kinds of attractions museums are closed. I also want to take some beautiful photos, I am very helpless, the camera is not dare to take it out, it is too sensitive, only the phone can take a few shots. After returning to the accommodation, the girl who lived in a hotel to do business in Iran said that she and her local customers were followed by two people for four or five hours. I dont know if its a plainclothes policeman or want to wait for a computer bag, no matter what identity. People who have been tracked for four or five hours think that they are horrible. I hope that I will go out and follow me yesterdays plain clothes to follow me. It seems to be a lot safer. Iran has changed a lot in recent years. The domestic currency has depreciated, and the level of consumption has been rising. The unemployment rate and crime rate have also been rising. Locals say that if women go out alone at night, the chances of being robbed are as high as 100%. Eighty, not only for tourists but also for locals. At this time, the node does not know whether it is good or bad. In short, it is another special experience.

The landing of Iran and then the car to the hotel has been more than three o'clock in the middle of the night, the hotel actually did not! room! Now! Sure enough, the oral order was somewhat unreliable. Fortunately, the boss found a friend's home, regardless of the poor environment, at least somewhere. I got up and changed my accommodation, went out to take a photo, just took a photo of a renovated mosque (can't go in) and the ruins of the US Embassy, and I was stopped by a group of plain clothes who said that they were policemen. A person can't speak English. It is too casual to call a passerby brother to do translation. Let's wait for another person to ask questions in three or four minutes. After waiting for thirty or forty minutes, the result is still a group. English-speaking people [smile] What else can I say? Then I began to ask questions, or the little brother who pulled the roadside to do the translation, and then turned over the phone and flipped the camera to turn the camera. It was really troublesome. Finally, I would send me back to the hotel to check the passport (also, I am not in the mood to go shopping anyway). I saved my money.) I looked like a bad person. I have been asking for Mao to check me. I have any questions. My brother has always apologized to explain that I am sorry, I may have taken some pictures with problems. I went to take a picture of the mosque and some murals of the ruins of the US Embassy as follows. Is this a violation? ? ? He still apologizes that our country is a sensitive country, so many things have to be confirmed. I guess it is because I look a bit special, blame me? Actually, I can understand that because the president will be re-elected for the two days, I can accept the suspicious people. However, the efficiency is so low, it is a bit disgusting. The museum I originally planned to go to did not go.

Irans Mehr News Agency reported on June 29 that the Iranian government announced on the same day that it would impose a visa-free entry policy for Chinese tourists. This mysterious ancient country of Persia, there are too many beautiful scenery, civilization and hospitable Iranians, it is worth traveling. Specially compiled a TIPS: About Iran's practical strategy classification 1, on dress requirements, especially women Iran is a country of politics and religion, women must go out to wrap the headscarf, clothes Need to cover the buttocks, long sleeves, trousers. In Tehran and Tabriz, it is much stricter. Almost in Tabriz, the headscarf is dark, not colorful. As a female tourist, sometimes accidentally outside, lost a headscarf, there will be a passerby reminder. For men, short sleeves can be worn, but the length of the shorts above the knee is not acceptable. 2, about changing money In Iran, you cannot use a bank debit card, credit card or traveler's cheque, you need to prepare for foreign currency exchange. Currently Iran accepts exchanges for US dollars, HKD, British pounds, Euros and other currencies. Regarding the exchange rate of each currency, cici has something to say - Since 2017, Iran accepts RMB exchange, and the exchange rate is very good. Tehran Airport exchanges on the second floor. Other places, there is a street outside the Imam Square in Isfahan. There are many hawkers who will exchange money. The US dollar exchange rate is second to none. Then it is the euro... 3. About the calling card The fastest and cheapest card in Iran is the Ircell sim card, which is equivalent to China Unicom. It is said that there is a 4G network, but the Iranian network really does not dare to compliment, 3G is very good, basically in the desert area of the road is no service! The company's SIM card is sold at both ends of the 1st floor exit of Tehran Airport, which is the same price as the city. It is more convenient to handle at the airport. The package is distributed as follows - 1.5G - 160,000 riyals 3G - 310,000 riyals 5G - 46,000 riyals Normal - 10 million riyals 4. Regarding the choice of VPN Yes, due to US sanctions and Irans own network restrictions, it is very troublesome for Internet exchange. In the early years, even Facebook could not go on. Last year, Iran had lifted the ban. But for WeChat in mainland China, I dont know why, it has always been a trouble. If you don't use VPN, WeChat can't make friends, send pictures, and even use the wind. 1 is recommended here - fast sail. 5, the best 2 Persian hello-salm, (saran) thank you-mamnun, (mamanu) hospitable Iranians, splendid Persian culture and history, good-looking Persian children are also the reasons that attracted me. If you don't leave, the world is only as big as you see it, and it is just a world of hearsay.
