Ahvaz is a city in Khuzestan Province in South Western Iran.

Understand

The eastern half is both residential and Industrial. The main train station is on the western side and the airport is on the eastern side.

Taxis roam around the city 24 hours a day and are relatively inexpensive. Around 2000 tomans for the longest trip in the city. There are also taxi agencies everywhere, if you can't find one on your own, all the hotels have taxi agencies. Busses ply most innercity routes and are very cheap.

See

Being a oil business oriented city, there are not alot of interesting places to see in Ahvaz. Most people go to Kianpars street at night and stroll amongs the shops. You could visit the old and hectic bazaar area(Taleqani Street). The best places in Ahvaz are situated alongside the river. The river boulevard is a nice place to stroll and has many parks. One of the attractions of Ahvaz is the oil well flares situated on the border of the city, but it's only nice at night time.

Buy

All the Ahvaz neighborhoods have a local market place, the upscale shops are mostly situated alongside Chamran Blvd.(Kianpars), Zeitoon Karmandi (Cheetah Square), and the main bazaar is on Taleqani Street.

Eat

Budget

There are many sandwich shops and fast food shops in the city. Most are average.

Mid-range

Oxin Hotel Restaurant- Try the Shir Mahi(Fish) Kebabs and they also serve great Meat Kebabs. They have specials that change daily, my favorite is the Shrimp.

Athena Pizza in Kianpars serves excellent deep dish pizzas.

Splurge

Astoria Hotel Restaurant-Expensive and below average food.

Drink

You cannot legally find alcohol in Iran so your drinking is limited to soft drinks and fruit juice. There are many good fruit juice shops in Ahvaz and you will find them easily. In the summer stay away from Cantaloupe juice and Banana milk shakes.

Sleep

Budget

There are many mehmansara (Guest House) in Ahvaz. Most don't admit foreigners and the ones that do are not up to foreign standards. But they are inexpensive. Naderi Hotel is a decent one.

Mid-range

Oxin Hotel is near the airport and is moderately priced. It has an excellent restaurant and the rooms are clean and they have great air conditioning. They also have large screen televisions in the lobby and mostly show football games. They speak very good English and can help you arrange any kind of tour or transport.

Splurge

Fajr (Former Astoria) Hotel is the best hotel in the city. It is situated by the riverside and has great views but it's expensive.

testimonials


Iran was incredibly welcoming to a 21 year old American woman - I hope I can come back and experience it again! I can't pick one, although I think Uppersia and Nadia picked some great activities for my time there. I really enjoyed Persepolis and the square in Isfahan.

Where do I start? The whole trip was a highlight! Shahdad and Bayazed stick in my mind. Food was fantastic everywhere! I don't think I had a bad meal the whole trip. Highlights were Tehran, Isfahan, .... just about ever dinner was a highlight.

We wanted to travel with an Iranian company because we felt that would have more expertise in every way. Uppersia was highly recommended in the Lonely Planet guide. We also wanted more of our money to go to benefit Iran directly, rather than a UK travel company. For the same reason we chose to fly Iran Air.

THANK YOU so much for all the planning and effort put into our trip to make it so wonderful. We cannot say enough good things about Narjes, Iman,and about our whole experience. We have told several friends, and I think a couple of them are serious about making the journey. We have told them Uppersia is the way to go!
