Yazd Travel Guide

Yazd is a city of high wind catchers, bicycles and Qanats. Yazd is also known as "Daralebadeh". Yazd is one of the mega cities of Iran and it is the capital of Yazd province that located in central part of Iran. Yazd is the first adobe city in the world and after Venice in Italy, it is the second historical city. These two mentioned features are sufficient for persuading you to travel to this city. Geographically, from the north the city is limited by Meybod and Ardakan, from the east it is limited by Ardakan and Bafq, from the west by Isfahan and from the south by Taft, Ardakan and Mehriz. Since the city is located in desert region, it has dry and hot climate. Yazd can be considered as a two-season city; a long hot season ( from March until September) and a short cold season ( from October until February).

Where to stay in Yazd?

Staying at a traditional hotel is really desirable when traveling to a historical city. But Yazd like other cities of Iran has modern hotels that you can choose any of them based on your interest. We recommend you to stay at traditional hotels of the city, because staying at such hotels is not possible in any other cities. Fahadan, Safaiyeh, Vali, Mehr,Adib Al- Mamalek and Koroush are the best traditional hotels in Yazd. If you are not interested in staying at traditional hotels, you can stay at modern hotels of the city like Arg, Jahangardi, Zanbagh, and Karevan. You can also stay at local traditional houses in Yazd. Staying at such houses can be a different experience.
