Question: I like to enter Afghanistan from Iran on foot. Is it possible to get visa for Afghanistan? And where is the best place to get a visa in Iran? And is the road to Herat the best place to cross the border? How is the situation in East Iran, near afghan border?

 

Answer: Islam Qala, the only legal border crossing into Afghanistan from Iran, is a border town in the west of Afghanistan. It is the official port of entry from neighboring Taybad, Iran.
Herat town itself is relatively safe by Afghanistan's standards but the surrounding countryside is extremely dangerous.
The highway between Herat and the border crossing at Islam Qala (Taybad in Iran) has recently been upgraded, allowing a quick transit. Direct buses run daily from Mashhad to Herat (IR70, 000, seven hours), which is slightly cheaper than travelling piecemeal from Mashhad. From Islam Qala it’s around 90 minutes’ drive to Herat. There are plenty of shared taxis (60Afg) after immigration. There are also direct Herat–Mashhad buses.
It is possible to get a visa for Afghanistan in Iran from the Afghan embassy in Tehran. The embassy in Mashad doesn’t issue a visa to foreigners.

Question: There seems no possibility to fly from Yazd to Esfahan, so we must go there either with train or bus. Do you know the excatly info? And for the bus, how is the exact deparure time?
Besides: How long it takes from Persepolis to Pasargadae, and which Sights is has?

 

Answer: Yazd to Esfahan is only 3-4 hours drive so no airplane flies between these two.
Train departures are only at night, as far as I know. And "frequent" departures of bus are available, something about each 1-2 hours a departure.

Pasargadae is a UNESCO-recognized small ziggurat-like monument of Cyrus the great. From Persepolis to pasargadae is about 1 hour. If you want to go there from Shiraz, it will take about one full day to visit both Persepolis and Pasargadae, then you can continue the route to Yazd and visit Abarkouh on the way as well. You should take private car to these sites.

Question: Arriving in a few weeks from warmer climate and will need to immediately get shopping to avoid dying of the cold (there are no suitable cold weather clothes on sale where I live). Any advice on a reasonably priced mall/ bazaar/area of Tehran to save me on the day I arrive? Will be staying in the centre, near Khomeini Square.

 

Answer: The men's wear shops around the main entrance to the bazaar in Tehran are ideal for all kinds of men's clothes (Jackets, trousers, coats etc).
Dress attire for men is similar to that in Europe. The strict dress code for men in Iran prohibits short trousers and short sleeved shirts and t-shirts. Although you would not see Iranian men dressed in shorts, you will almost certainly see men wearing short sleeved shirts and t-shirts.

The female tourist in Iran has to cover their hair. They should also wear loose fitting garments which cover arms and legs up to at least the knee area, over pants and a scarf in the summer, and a full-length woolen coat and scarf in the winter (calf-length is acceptable if worn over pants).
Sandals and flip flops without socks are acceptable for both genders and makes no problem.
