A few blissful and peaceful days in Kish - Part III

By Syma Sayyah & Paul Sanford, Tehran

The Greek Ship, Kish

During our recent trip to Kish we noted that while children were enjoying themselves to the fullest, older people were just as cool and happy, some searching for something or enjoying the sea and fresh air.

On Kish it is easy to rent cycles and tandems and join in the fun of riding round the island.  Some people were water skiing and some were simply sitting by the water enjoying the peace.

Taxis are cheap in Kish and easily found but we enjoyed walking up and down the Grand Recreational Pier during the day and at night.  On the last day of our stay, we took a taxi and went to see a few historical  places in the island including  The Ancient Town of Harireh, a traditional water reservoir, The Abanbar  and the Underground town of Kariz-e Kish.  We had previously been to an outdoor display of sculptures of famous modern Iranians in the Artists Path, which is close to the Kish Financial Center.

Although the financial center was closed when we were there we were able to have a quick look inside, it was very clean and luxurious.   We also witnessed one of the rare traffic accidents in Kish and came across a flower nursery one on of our long walks, and watched the sun and the moon over the Persian Gulf for added enjoyment.

 We have some photographs here to share with you.
