Video: WHY I’m GOING to IRAN

Anissa Syifa Adriana Indonesian female solo traveler write review on Iran:

It has been 3 weeks that I travel around Iran. Tomorrow I am leaving this beautiful country. I am sad. And that statement is even underrated. I haven’t posted any photos in Iran because I don’t feel the need to. I don’t need extravagant photos or excellent Instagram feeds to show you. Traveling for me isn’t about that. Yes, photo captures moment that wont come back or perhaps wont happen again. However, story, is on the other hand is extremely important. I can have the most amazing photo in the world, but without story, there is nothing special about it. I genuinely wish anyone who is reading this will be able to visit, see and experience Iran as one of the most complex countries in the history. I wish that you also get to get out of your familiarity to experience and eventually transform into the real you, the truth of who you are.

And yes, I will come back again this year.


Hi there!
I am Anissa Syifa Adriana, otherwise known as Syifa. I am a conversation connoisseur, Indonesian female solo traveler and make-up enthusiast. I started my first solo traveling in June 2014, a coincidence trip, where it was intended for someone I was very close to in the past. I never regret deciding to go because after that, I never look back.
I decided to leave Indonesia since August 2016, to do a long-term traveling. After being on the road for about 5 months, in January 2017 I was offered to teach English in Yinchuan, Northwest China. Instead of going back home, at that time I went straight to China from Vietnam carrying only the remaining USD 300 that I had in my bank account. Arrived in China for the first time, everything felt so intimidating and foreign at the same time. Since then, I am based in Yinchuan, Northwest China and have been loving it.
Thank you again for watching! I hope you get to enjoy the video as much as I am making it.
Let’s keep it positive. Don’t forget to like, share, comment and subscribe 🙂
Till next time!
