Ramadan in Iran

Ramadan is a special time for Muslims around the world. Tourists travelling to a Muslim country during this holy month of fasting will be presented with a unique opportunity to observe and experience distinctive scenes, customs, and traditions. Although foreigners or non-Muslims are not expected to fast, it is illegal in Iran to eat, drink, or smoke in public during the fasting hours. However, it is mostly acceptable to dine within the confines of your hotel.
If you're planning on travelling to a Muslim-majority region during this time, you’re in for an utterly fascinating experience. This month is traditionally a time of great hospitality and generosity, so go ahead and accept Ramadan sweets or invitations to feasts, parties and family gatherings. This energetic and of course adventurous group from Hungary travel to Iran during Ramadan as they want to explore a Muslim country in a new way. Uppersia’s professional and sociable tour guide, Ali Sheibani, accompanied our guests during their memorable trip to Iran.

The Commemoration of Persian Poet, Khayyám


The 11th-century Persian poet, astronomer, and mathematician Omar Khayyam was raised in the town of Nishabour in present-day northern Iran. He also wrote treatises on mechanics, geography, mineralogy, music, and Islamic theology. However, Khayyám is perhaps best known for his epic work of poetry – The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam. The verses translated by FitzGerald and others reveal a man of deep thought, troubled by the questions of the nature of reality and the eternal, the impermanence and uncertainty of life, and man’s relationship to God.  Iranian believe that Poets influence individuals in particular and the society in general. Based on this belief, every year on 18th May, a commemoration is held to venerate Khayyam as the honored personage of Persian poetry. You can explore the tomb of one of the most prominent representatives of the Persian literature, Khayyam, by joining Uppersia Neishabour day tour.
