Iran Tourism Expectations vs Reality 

Iran is one of the unknown countries in the field of tourism. Despite the ancient history and long experience in the tourism industry, the tourists do not have a clear picture of a trip to Iran due to the lack of proper introduction to Iran on social media. Many social media and international tourism websites have not included Iran in their tourism list, consequently, no correct information has been provided. Many tourists encounter false news about Iran when planning their trip to Iran.

Some of the most famous rumors are:

Iran is a desert and arid country.
Iran is the same Taliban and terrorists.
Women in Iran should wear Borgha(Afghanistan woman's face cover).
There are no tourism services in Iran.
Dirty restaurants without a variety

But the reality is laid n the heart of Iranian society that negates all rumors and makes tourists eager to return back to this beautiful land for the second time.
When telling friends and family about your intention to visit Iran, the typical reaction involves a questioning expression followed by a "Why?"
But a visit to Iran offers not only magnificent colorful Persian mosques, gardens, and palaces with deep history but also a passport stamp that will be the envy of many seasoned travelers.

Iranian women are in the burqa

Expectation: women are in the burqa
Reality: Iranians are very fashionable and very concerned with the brand.

This is a wrong idea that Iranian women are clad in Burgha, and their eyes are peeking out when they are in public.
This is not true. It is, however, true that wearing a headscarf is compulsory in Iran, even for travelers.
But this is just a scarf on your head, Not with more Toughness.
But at the same time, you can also spot fashionable women sporting fashionable mantles with hair overwhelming with their worn hijab for free use, especially in less conservative cities like Tehran and Shiraz. At the same time, this comes with distant blond hair, fancy nails, high heels, and above all, omnipresent nose cassettes that have recently done nose work. So yes, there are women who push the limits with regard to the dress code.

Iranians are terrorists not hospitable

Expectation: Iranians are terrorists
Reality: Iranians are incredibly, overwhelmingly, unbelievably hospitable. Iranian exaggerate hospitality

Terrorism with Iranian hospitality has an obvious contradiction that you will fully feel when you go to Iran.
The only kind of "terror" you are potentially faced with is when the inhabitants kidnap you for a sumptuous dinner with their family (and their parents extended) and when you face terrible indigestion after that because they continue to complete your plate. Or when a total stranger insists on taking you to the city and paying everything, taxis, and meals or the entrance fees, without wanting anything in return.
