A cheap trip

As well as its beauty, many travelers are attracted to Iran for the low costs. From the Revolution of 1979, the country’s economy has often viewed ups and downs, more downs actually… Embargoes and geopolitical issues of course don’t help and the Riel, the local currency, has lost only in the 2018 more or less the 150% of its value against Euro and Dollar. Needless to say this is for Iranians a bad news but, a bit cynically, for foreigners who want to visit Iran means cheaper prices.
