Long-time MIR tour manager and world traveler Michel Behar browses the bazaars whenever he travels to Iran, and has returned home to the Netherlands with some beautiful finds. Here he shares some of his favorite Persian souvenirs.

Isfahan Shopping RecommendationsIsfahan is my favorite place to look for souvenirs. Here you can find miniatures, carpets, antiques and enamel work. When shopping, I look in local galleries, where renowned artists show their work.
