Iran: Train, Public Transportation
Iran, former Persia, is a large country. Like most of it's neighbours Islam is state religion. Women (incl. tourists) should covered their hair and be dressed decently at all times, even if not Muslim. Iranian people are very, very friendly and like to talk to you, without trying to sell or cheat. Yet women should not travel alone. There is a also beautiful architecture in Isfahan and ancient heritage sites like Shiraz.
