My arrival into Tehran was pretty uneventful and at the airport, everything went smooth with immigration. After checking my passport and electronic Visa, I was warmly welcomed into the country this definitely set the tone of my visit. I arrived at 5:00 am in Tehran and after settling in and meeting my tour guide, I was ready to hit the ground running.
Tehran is the capital of Iran and is the largest city in the country with a population of almost 10 million people. That being said, just like any other large city in the world, it is busy and bustling with life.
On day one I visited the Niavaran Palace Complex which was the residence of the last king of Iran, Mohammed Reza Pahlavi.
