    Default Travelling trip to Iran or Syria

    Hi all,


    Im thinking of going a trip to either Syria or Iran at the week after Xmas... So any experience traveler there ??
    What to take note of and how to apply for the Visa to these places ??

    Im actually bias against flying to Turkey and then took a train to Damascus. Think its cheaper this way also. But my companion wanted to go Iran instead.

    Any advices ??? Thanks in advance.

    Nice! Something to keep for future reference. One other reason to go to Iran is probably to fly on one of the last few B707 services out there

    Probably the stereotype thinking since these 2 countries are not on very friendly terms with USA.

    Anyway, trip to DPRK anyone?
