About IRAN

Iran with approximately 84 Million inhabitants is the 17th most populous country in the world and the second largest country in the Middle East. Iran has 31 provinces and Tehran is the largest and most populous one as the sprawling capital since 1786. Persian (Farsi) as a polarimetric language is officially spoken in Iran alongside Tajikestan (named Tajik since the Soviet era) and Afghanistan (named Dari since 1958). Iran is the member of UN, Non-Aligned Movement, organization of Islamic Cooperation, Economic Cooperation Organization (ECO), OPEC, and other international organizations which plays a crucial strategic role in the Middle East.
Iran holds tenth, fifth and fourth ranks in the world in terms of natural tourist attractions, water & weather and ancients respectively. Iran stretches from the Caspian Sea (the world’s largest lake) to the north to the Persian Gulf to the south of Iran plateau. Iran consists of three major climate zones: Arid and semi-arid climate throughout the central and east west of Iran plateau, Mediterranean climate along the Caspian Sea and very cold climates within the two major mountain ranges of Zagros and Alborz which cover thousands of kilometers in the plateau of Iran.
“Iranians are the first historical nation and Iran’s kingdom is the first empire in the history” said by Hegel. The first Persian Empire as the greatest empire in the world was founded by Cyrus the Great in the 6th century B.C. Based on the archeological artifacts, human has existed in Persia since the Lower Paleolithic about 3 million years ago and ancient paintings on stone and archeological artifacts prove a civilization from eighth millennium B.C.

A friendly talk!

Iranians are the first historical nation and the Persian empire was the first of its kind , in all of history”
You know who said that Hegel and for good reason.
Iran can offer you two things.
Tea , or history. You can have both.
Nearly 20 years ago something shifted in our industry , the word medical tourism began to take shape and foreign nationals started to pretty much jump on any flight to Iran to get anything from a nose job to a hip replacement , why you ask ?
Well for once its cheaper , the revolution that took place in 1979 had one core value , to be self sufficient , and the medical industry was not a exception to that.
The country shifted from a importer , to a exported or medicines and medical equipment .
Iranians learned the know how of this industry and perfected it to the smallest detail imaginable and then it moved towards the second know , after quality came quantity , mass productions started with export doors opening to countries such as Iraq , Afghanistan , Pakistan , Germany ,Turkey , UAE , Qatar , Oman , Kuwait , and Yemen.
Most importers of Iranian medicine and medical equipment are world famous procurers’ themselves but the reason to this business , is price.
After finding out how to make it , we looked for how to make it better and after learning how to make it better we learned to make it cheaper , due to the fact Iran’s rich in every natural resource we could possibly need and is filled up with 80 million people or so of which the youth was never really keen on not being curious.
Curiosity might have killed the cat but in our case curiosity gave way for a enitrley new industry to be formed.
Yes it changed before the revelation medical tourism did exist and some might say it was a active one but for a different reasons , but even so we count ourselves as a young industry and we are willing to take that term because our industry is filled with innovation and creation.
Filled with world class equipment imported and locally manufactured our hospitals provide world class treatment without tearing a whole in your pocket,.
Cheaper then USA , Turkey , Germany , Thailand and India Iran’s young industry is getting closer and closer to its peak.
And the best part is , while your recovering from your treatment you just had for probably a Quarter of what it would have costed you elsewhere , how about you have that tea we talked about earlier and enjoy your stay in one of many magnificent 5 star hotels.
And if you get bored ,
Well that’s not going happen here.
We look forward to seeing you here and we sure hope.
Were said to be 6000 ! years old.
With that age , we have a certain rules some literarily some are.
So let us go through some common cultural properties of Iran that your going to face during your visit.
First of which is.
Don’t be alerted by our cabbies.
Its customary for cabbies to be everything you need in your life ,
And we mean anything.
Got family problems ? he’s got you.
Need some advice on where to eat just tell him how much your willing to add to your weight.
Politics ? Economics ?
So its is okay to ask any question you’d like on any of these subjects or anything else that comes to your mind the only thing you should not ask about is football were either red here or blue but the only thing you should know is (the red aka Perspolis fc will always win .)
Secondly our food its not spicy and yes we serve vegan to.
The one thing we’d advice thought is not bring along any shorts for walking around in the city its customary for it to belong to children for good reasons.
The unforgiving sun and the teeth shattering cold at the either edge of weather of this county will get to your legs.
Lets address the elephant in the room.
You’ll get coffee
Don’t worry you’d be surprised .
Tea on the other hand your probably not going to believe this one .
Watch out or else that habit of drinking 10 glasses of water a day you’ve been trying to get a hold on for a few months yeah no that’s going be done in no time but the only problem your going face is that you will be having tea instead. Just don’t do it.
Taroof.
You hear this word a lot when it comes to any post about traveling to our country.
For good reason , there is a famous quote among the Eastern Iranians , when god created man kind , he set the Persians aside.
Every other human has a body that has a heart that pumps a massive amount blood through a freakishly long veins that we have been blessed with.
However , Persians .
Instead of a heart we going kettle in there and instead of blood its Taroof.
It’s a habit. It’s a culture. Just don’t ask to much.
This is how it happens .
Lets continue the cab example.
You get in the cab , you greet the man , he greets you back , he is most likely to ask you how you doing , now trick one.
Answer the question honestly and your going have a longer conversation then you’d think.
Instead you really need to learn this , say your doing good and ask him hell thank you most likely end it with a joke ( depending on who won derby).
This is the first level. The second where things come into the tricky side of things is that you will most likely have to pay.
I say this. And I mean it.
In Iran its been in our culture to do what we love , and to make money out of it in doing so . its not uncommon to get free services here. From a lawyer waving his fees to a barista giving you a free Choco chip beside that latte of yours.
-So a cabbie , you will ask him the cost as a way of initiating the conversation to pay, lets say for ease of conversation. A dollar.
You will then offer him the money , he will deny it you will insist , he will deny again . and finally on your third offer he will accept and thank you.
Welcome to the shortest possible way of explain Taroof.
Feel free to ask us more.
Now more on the front of our rules here , as you know the official name of our country is the Islamic republic or Iran
Our clothing has certain rules and regulations which we would be happy to answer any questions you might have about this.
No really.
Ask.
Before that here is a short list.
– we don’t carry guns or knifes with us , the sharpest thing we have on us is the our car keys , so if you see some one trying to open a package with their teeth , you now know why our Dental industry is so strong and has a lot of experience. Stay away unless your willing to volunteer your keys.
– Alcoholic drinks are largely banned.
-smoking is prohibited almost nowhere by law but its encouraged not to do it in parks or on the street.
And while we are at it we do offer ash trays in cafes that have it permitted , so don’t get offended.
-it is frowned upon to play music out loud in public areas and to watch that vlog you want to watch , grab a pair of headphones and go on.
If you want to watch something or just listen to it , play anything that you would in the presence of your mother.
