Iran travel budget Jan 06, 2011

Visa cost: 85 Euro + LOI / 30 days
Budget per day: 45 euro
Actual per day: 31 euro
Why so cheap?
After the disastrous experience with my budget in Turkey I adjusted my budget for Iran. Thankfully this proved unnecessary. Iran has a very large and active couch surfing community, which not only enriched my travel experience, it also cut down on the costs of accommodation. Hotel prices are generally by room and I travelled with a friend for two weeks, which cut the expense on accommodation in half.
Can it be cheaper?
Yes, a few times we hired a taxi for a day, rather than taking a public bus, this way we managed to see more of the country, though obviously it could have been cheaper to take a bus to simply get from place A to B.
Food & Drinks:
Beer: Alcohol is illegal, black market beer costs around €8
Espresso: €5 (at the film museum, Tehran. After this I stuck to instant coffee!)
Meal: €3-€8 (Traditional restaurants, less at fast food places)
Single room: €8-€15
Double room: €15-€25
