Countries in Pictures – Travel Talk Series - IRAN by Mr. Vincent WONG



Countries in Pictures – Travel Talk Series

Traveling to world’s ancient countries through talks and rich collections of pictures

 

IRAN by Mr. Vincent WONG

 

Known for thousands of years as Persia, the country was renamed Iran only in 1935. Rich in oil and gas, Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilisation as well as the world’s first super power although it did suffer occupation later on respectively by the Greek, Seljuk, Mogul and Arabs. The conversion from Zoroastrianism to Islam also made it deeply religious. As such, the country has an extremely rich and colourful history with plenty of magnificent and beautiful relics from palaces to mosques to the famous “Persia-gardens”. These are complemented by very diversified and scenic geographical landscape, thus making the country very attractive to visit.

 

Testimonials from participants of previous travel talks and study tours led by Vincent:

“I have learnt a lot on this subject!”

“Very comprehensive indeed. Thanks!”

“Very useful guide for my future trip!”

”Now what I have seen makes much more sense. Thank you!”
