Tehran direct to Shiraz: plane or bus?

Postby Manelp » Sun Nov 01, 2015 2:32 pm

Hi

We are planing to visit some of Iran in 2 weeks, at the end of november. The main trip will be all around Tehran-Shiraz, and that we will done in bus by our own. But after the trip (or when starting) we will do Shiraz-Tehran (or viceversa) directly. For that journey we are not sure if to take a plane or if we take a night bus. The plane cost around € 60, and we would like to know how much does cost a night and direct bus from one city to the other?. How many hours are? It is comfortable to sleep in (you can stretch on the seat?)?. Would you recomend?

Thank you very much.

In Iran it is possible get "VIP" buses that are very comfortable and have only three seats per row with the more leg room than anyone under seven feet should need to be comfortable.

You should be able to find travel times and approximate or relative prices with a bit of quick googling of in the LP or whatever guidebook you're using.

I think a VIP bus would come down to around 20$, around 13h I think. LP is from 2011 so prices are wildly inaccurate but travel time is the same as it says there. It is comfortable. They usually play 1 horrible Iranian movie but then it's quiet.

I haven't taken a train myself in Iran yet but I only heard good things about it, quiet and comfortable it seems, slower than the bus though.

Thank You very much for your help. We will try to get first the train and if not, a bus. Both have similar prices and there are not a big diference in time.
Thank you again!
