People who want to travel to Iran with their families also ask;
One of the most asked questions by tourists who are interested in visiting Iran and learning and becoming familiar with Iranian cultures, civilization, landscapes, monuments, and people is whether Iran is safe or not. Iran is a special country with a broad range of landmarks, natural features, and different cultures. So because of its tourism potential, Iran is a perfect destination. In addition, visiting Iran is financially affordable for most people around the world because of the value of its currency. So the question that might stop people from visiting Iran is: Is Iran safe to visit or not? There are many negative opinions about Iran all around the world because of global politic issues. But people shouldn’t forget the fact that all these arguments are between governments, Iranian Governments, and others and not people. If you’re planning a trip to Iran, and you want to visit Iran, your biggest concern will be more about what to wear than your safety. While you will need to keep your wits about you like anywhere else in the world, you won’t have to worry about religious extremism ruining your trip. In fact, Iran earned a spot as one of the top 20 tourist destinations to visit in 2017 by Bloomberg. One of the reasons is Iran’s security, which has been a major factor in tourists returning to Iran.
Iran is one of the safest destinations for female travelers.
Due to the culture of gender segregation in Iran, common street harassment that solo female travelers experience doesn’t really happen. Public displays of affection are not allowed.
Another great thing about safety for women in Iran is that the locals will always look out for them.
If you’re traveling alone on the bus, the driver will make sure you are not sitting next to an unknown man. So while these gender rules are a bit of a culture shock, it does create a safe environment for women and removes a lot of the safety issues that females experience in other countries.
