Zahedan is a quiet city. Although it's the capital of the province, it's less populated. People of Zahedan are very, very warm and welcoming to strangers and tourists. Main streets are clear, the air is always clean and you can actually BREATH in the city. There's not much night life in this city, but if you're a fan of night walks, it's the perfect place. There are so many negative things that people around Iran say about Zahedan, but if you visit it, you'll see it's safe and sound and you can actually like it although it's not like Tehran or Mashhad.
The PIA flight from Zahedan to Quetta has been cancelled some time in 2013/2014.
