Dear all,

This is my first trip report in Flight Report. I am a Persian member living in Toronto and I wanted to cover my trip from Tehran to Dubai on my way to Hong Kong on December 2012 (last year).

As you all know, Iran is very badly portrayed by the media but thanks to the internet people can now go and by looking at the pictures and reading articles about Iranians learn that what they see in media about the people of Iran is not true. Our government totally sucks and Iranians hate them too but we can't do anything as they hold the power and is a total dictatorship. But behind all these I am glad to say that I have the biggest collection of Tehran pictures on the net, More than 60,000 pictures spread over more than 550 pages at my collection below on Skyscrapercity or by simply typing Tehran pictures on google, the first option is the link to my blog:

Here you can see the daily life in Tehran and many cityscapes.

Tehran is a huge vibrant metropolis, the biggest city in the middle east with more than 14 Million people. It's such a cool city with great people, very modern with an amazing metro system, highways, shopping centers, coffee shops, restos and the list goes on. Although we have a crazy government and they put rules and restrictions on people, people still try to enjoy their life and our lives are separate and very much disconnected from the government there. Unfortunately we have a dress code imposed by the government that women have to wear a scarf and an overcoat in public and men can't wear shorts. Also alcohol is banned in Iran and most people smuggle them into the country.

To make it short I put some pictures from my blog in here, Tehran is such a nice and cool city, very safe for tourists too and of course it's better if you sign up with a tour company if you visit Iran since it's easier to get around.

I hope you enjoy the pictures and best wishes for a great new year for everyone :)

Iranians have very diverse looks from middle eastern looks to blonde features with green/blue eyes. Below you can see how people look and also see the dress code but Persian women have a very great sense of style and even with the dress code, they always try to look their best outside on the streets.

You can't go to the boarding halls unless your flight is called for boarding and have to hang out in the Duty Free area, once called you pass a security check point and go to board your plane.

Conclusion

Unfortunately I need to give my honest opinion but I have to say I did not enjoy flying Emirates that much as I took them all the way to Hong Kong and all the way back to Tehran. The seats were not too comfortable. Each time after I woke up from sleep I had a very bad neck pain, also the leg room was average. The food did not taste that good and the food tray is so crowded with so many items that it's almost overflowing.

I like Alitalia's New A330 way more along with KLM, their seats are more comfortable than Emirates.

But Dubai airport is amazing. I loved every bit of it. So beautiful and so many shops to wander around. It's definitely one of my most favorite airports.

Hong Kong was lovely as always and I had been to Dubai and that's one of my most favorite cities as well.

Thank you all and I'll try to find time to post more trip reports :)
