Travel Blogs from Shiraz
Shiraz is everything I ever imagined Iran to be and so much more! It is breathtaking desert mountains, it is red dust, it is songbirds, it is ancient marketplaces, it is stunning mosques, it is the resting place of poets, and it is the home of friendly and welcoming people.
As an introduction to Shiraz, I spend the morning at the citadel around …
About an hour's drive east of Shiraz can be found the remains of the ancient city of Persepolis: a 2500 year old 'screw you' to the Babylonian Empire. Built as a ceremonial capital to receive foreign signatories, little remains today at the original site as the most important surviving pieces have been carried off to various museums.

... the world go by which is a shame considering they have the perfect weather for it. Today we booked a driver to take us on a day trip out to Persepolis which is a bunch of ruins located an hours drive from Shiraz. Nothing like a 2 hr stroll around a dusty archaeological site in the midday sun with no shade. Putting that aside and reading a little into it, turns out it's quite a remarkable place. Building commenced in 520 BC and continued over the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHoma Hotel Shiraz
I was very impressed by the standard of the Homa Hotel in Shiraz. Iranian hotel ratings differ greatly from western standards but I found this hotel to be great value for money. Room was big and clean, bathroom was spacious and an excellent assortment of amenities were provided.
Dinner was buffet style served outside in the gardens with live music (a piano-playing DJ) from 8pm to 11pm. Buffet was big but there was not a huge selection. A la carte menu was also limited in choices and many were poorly translated into English - leaving you with some doubts as to exactly what certain dishes were. Overall, price made this a good option with dinner with drinks (non-alcoholic of course!) coming to about 11 euros.
Outdoor pool was drained and closed, but there was a pool in the fitness centre, along with wet and dry saunas, and a cold plunge pool. Fitness centre was segregated with men and women being able to use it at different times - check if unsure! Location was not great and taxis were needed to get into the centre of town where most of the sights are - they were readily available at the hotel and cost less than two euros one way.
