Question: I've read that there a few interesting villages around Yazd such as: Meybod, Ardakan, Chak Chak, Nain. I probably will only have time to visit 1 or 2 but was hoping to find out which offer the most in terms of historical sights, natural beauty and overall Iranian village culture.
Answer: I recommend you the mixture of Meybod, Ardakan, Chak Chak and Nain since all of the are on the same path and you can see all in 1 day.
Meybod: 45 minutes from yazd
Ardakan: 75 minutes from yazd
Chack chack: 2 hours from yazd
Nain: 2 hours from yazd
