Under $100 / Middle East

Start your day in Isfahan at Messo Qali Café. It has a great atmosphere and includes outdoor seating. The café is vegetarian friendly and the food is cheap. Budget $15 for a good breakfast. After breakfast, visit the Chehel Sotoun, an elegant 17th-century pavilion and garden. The name means 40 pillars and is only about $6 to enter.

 

Check out the Great Hall while you are there because it is beautifully decorated with frescoes throughout. It is a gorgeous space with the perfect lighting for a memorable selfie. The garden is styled in classic Persian form and was recently added to UNESCO’s World Heritage list.

 

Next, take a walk along the Allahverdi Khan Bridge, more popularly known as the Si-so-se-pol. It is one of 11 bridges in Isfahan, Iran, completed in 1602. It is considered the largest Iranian historical structure on water. The bridge stretches over the Zayandeh River and features 33 arches.

 

Grab a quick bite to eat from a street vendor for less than $10 and continue the day. Walk through Naqsh-e-Jahan Square, situated in the center of Isfahan. It was constructed 1598–1629 and is a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is free to walk through the square.

 

With plenty of money left to spend, go to Shahrzad Restaurant for traditional Persian cuisine. Plan to spend around $40 dollars for a great meal and wine to accompany it.
