Iran is Top Travel Destination for 2008, Says NY Times


Earlier this month, the New York Times wrote a story about the best travel destinations for the next year. And guess what? We’re number 18! Pretty awesome, right? The story mentions Distant Horizons as a good tour provider (word is that it’s hard to get a visa otherwise, if you don’t have an Iranian passport). Update: it’s actually only hard to get that visa if you have an American passport; thanks, ec!

It’s not hard for people with a UK passport, and most EU passport holders can get a landing visa…It’s only hard for US passport holders.

Yes, I just saw a distant relative and found out they have been going back to Iran every year for the past 8-9 years. Being a EU passport holder makes it very easy.

Does anyone know if it’s easy for someone with a Candian passport to visit Iran?
