If there is one country in the world that will take you by surprise it will
surely be Iran. Forget about all the prejudices you might have heard about, like
people are Islamic fundamentalists, hating America. The real picture couldn’t
be any more different from what we think this country is like! Here you will
find the most hospitable, the friendliest and the most generous people you can
imagine. Meet the people in Iran and you will have the most memorable experience
on your travels.
People in Iran Are So Curious!
Compared to other countries, Iran still sees relatively few tourists which means
Iranians are naturally curious why you come travelling to their country.
No matter in which city you are, Iranians won’t hesitate to get in a talk
with you. On the train, waiting for a bus, in the supermarket and
sometimes they will just walk up to you in the street and start chatting with you “Why
do you come to Iran? What do you think of Iran?”. These casual meetings are
often followed by an invitation for a cup of tea, or if you get lucky even for a
delicious Persian dinner in their homes.
Iranian People Are Too Helpful!
You are trying to cross a busy street, without getting run over by the
reckless Iranian drivers? Don’t worry, a random guy will come up to you and
offer you his help to cross the street.
You are trying to read the cryptic
language in your map? Don’t be
surprised if an Iranian literally takes you by the hand to guide you to that
museum you were looking for.
Maybe you are not in need for help at all, and you are just waiting somewhere in
the street. But be sure Iranian people will come up to you and offer their help
Enjoy an Authentic Picnic with Iranian People!
Iranians love eating and they definitely love picnics. When the weather is nice and the
temperatures are not too hot, you will see millions of Iranian people and
families scattered around in parks, enjoying a traditional picnic with chai,
kebab and watermelon. If you are asked to sit down with them, don’t be shy and
take the chance to enjoy the typical Iranian hospitability. Iranian people will
gladly share their food and stories with you. And all they ask in return is a selfie with their new friend.
