Suitable coverage for tourists to travel to Iran

Special clothing has always been a challenging challenge for tourists traveling to Islamic countries. The use of travel sites and manuals has also sometimes led to misunderstandings about how to choose coverage.

“Iran is a country where Islamic law is enforced and travelers must respect local customs, religious rules and rituals. In public places, women must wear their hair covered with a headscarf, long pants or skirt, and long-sleeved dress or long coat. To wear knees. To visit religious places, you must use a tent before entering.

Hijab rules are not very strict for tourists due to bad propaganda, and they are guided by a kind warning if they break these rules. “Women’s arms should be covered and the legs should be covered up to the wrists, and the use of open-toed sandals and shoes is not an obstacle. “Men are not allowed to wear T-shirts, but shorts are not allowed in public places.” Of course, this clothing is not unique to Iran and is more or less the same in countries such as Egypt, Oman, UAE and Morocco.

However, women’s clothing coverage is not very limited and is not limited to the chador, and with a simple search on the Internet, you can find an acceptable style of clothing in Iran. Many tourists are surprised to see the colorful clothing of Iranian women upon arrival in Iran, and this image is often completely different from the pre-made mentality, which also refers to color restrictions.

“Many tourists are very surprised by the modernity of women’s style in Iran, and this image is completely different from what they have seen in the media before. In cities like Tehran, Shiraz and Isfahan, etc., the clothing is completely modern and up-to-date.

It is quite mythical to say that you use darker colors in Iran, and there are no restrictions for men and women in terms of color … If you do not like the scarves offered at the international airport, you can use delicate summer shawls. Used all over the world, use it instead of a scarf.

There is a lot of misconceptions and misinformation about Iran and Iranian culture among foreigners, and these misinterpretations are not limited to politics and government, and in many cases these cultural distortions are related to ordinary people and street culture.

There is almost no travel or tourist blogger whose opinions before his trip to Iran are not different from what he saw after his trip to Iran. Percentage of these cases of kindness and hospitality of Iranians are mentioned. Of course, it is unfortunate that a tourist travels hundreds of thousands of kilometers to finally realize that we Iranians, like other nations in the world, are ordinary people and not much different from the rest of the world. Of course, tourists are not to blame because they, like many people in the world, know Iran through not-so-fair films and one-sided news, and their misinterpretation is quite common. Of course, this issue is a little better in recent years and with the advent of social networks and is still improving.

Here are some suggestions on how to look or get an appointment for tourists.
