Yazd is a ‘do not miss’ destination with winding strips, fir forests, adobe houses and pleasant accommodations. On a flat plain surrounded by mountains, the city is squeezed between Dasht-e Kavir in the north and Dasht-e Lot in the south and is a city of every inch of the desert. It may not have great ticket views of Esfahan or Shiraz, but its atmospheric passages and history for centuries exceeds the capacity to be both fascinating. Yazd guarantees a lazy approach – entangled in the maze of historic lanes (locally called Yazd’s ‘historic fabric’), thrown into random tea houses, or rests on calligraphic puzzles on the elegant tiles of the city.
