Journey to Iran
When you’re on vacation, the last thing you want to do is encounter rude people. Friendly locals offering a warm welcome, on the other hand, can turn an average journey into an unforgettable one. If you’re looking for a destination where you can look forward to lots of pleasant interactions, head to Iran known as the home of some of the world’s friendliest people.
Iran’s greatest attraction could just be its people. The Iranians, a nation made up of numerous ethnic groups and influenced over thousands of years by Greek, Arab, Turkic and Mongol occupiers, are endlessly welcoming. Offers to sit down for tea will be an everyday occurrence, and if you spend any time at all with Iranians, you’ll often find yourself invited to share a meal in someone’s home. Say yes whenever you can, and through it, experience first-hand, Iranian culture, ancient, sophisticated and warm. It’s these experiences that will live longest in the memory.
