We left our hotel and drove to a lovely morning tea stop on a lake. Although our morning tea breaks are only short, it is still good to have a scenic spot for the relax
We arrived in Tabriz and had several options for sightseeing. We chose to spend several hours at the Tabriz bazaar. This area covered 7 kilometres and one could easily get lost in the alleyways and archways. It was an amazing shopping area as it was a bazaar more for the local than the tourists. Clothing, jewellery, hardware etc all had their sections and the bazaar covered 7 kilometres. You could imagine the caravaners stopping there. We were really window shoppers buying only small items but was incredible to view the merchandise.
At Kandovan, our destination for the night was a 5 star hotel and by the time we had walked to the top of the hill to our room we found out why. It was a room cut out of the rock and with all the modern amenities was nestled at the top of the resort. It was incredible. We walked to the town and by walking up the stairs in different directions we were able to view the small shops and homes nestled in the hillside. Most of the homes were also carved out of the rock.
