5 most scenic destinations in Iran

I would be more than happy to write long articles about every single city, village and street that I have ever visited in Iran, but in reality it would not serve a purpouse. Every person visiting Iran has had a different experience (though almost all of them are good!) and the particular destinations within the country have differed according to their specific interests.
