Several old houses in the historic part of the city have carefully been restored and turned to eco-tourism guest houses. Attempts have been made so that the authenticity of places are not affected and compromised. One can just go out of these houses and immediately and easily walk around the historic part, visit various places and spend times in few cafés available. Cultural Heritage Base of the Historic Port of Kong is also located next to these houses.

There are two major airports in Tehran. Imam Khomeini International Airport (IKA) for international, and Mehrabad Airport (MHD) for domestic flights. Travel time between these two airports vary depending on the traffic situation. However one should consider at least one and half hours travel time. Several daily flights are available from Tehran to Bandar Abbas, Qeshm and Kish Islands. Relatively close International Airports are also available in Kish and Qeshm Islands from where one can travel to Kong via Bandar Lengeh (10 minutes by car) by regular ferries.

Travel from Tehran to Bandar Abbas and return are also possible by daily buses and trains from Tehran. Further travel information will be posted here as we get closer to the Workshop.
