Iranian (American) Twitter users have been sharing photos of Iran while using #MustSeeIran. With President Rouhani promising to open up the country to tourism and letting the world tap into everything Iran has to offer (and ultimately creating a new source of income for Iranians)… this campaign couldn’t have come at a better time (what a well laid plan).
If the photos didn’t convince anyone of the necessity to travel to Iran ASAP then we feel sorry for (wo)mankind.
Tons of photos were shared and here are some of our favorites:
Chogha Zanbil, Khuzestan
Ancient Elamite complex. Basket Mound. First historical site to be inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
For all the ski lovers out there…
Shemshak, Tehran (province)
Second largest ski resort in Iran. For advanced skiers only – don’t get over-excited.
Shazdeh Garden, Kerman
Literally meaning “Prince” Garden. We imagine a garden growing endless numbers of princes. Plus it was built for a Qajar prince. (+++)
Tomb of Hafiz, Shiraz
I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness, the astonishing light of your own being. – Hafiz
In addition to culture and history, Iran can offer nature nuts a pretty package too:
Lar Dam, Damavand Mountains, Mazandaran
Where did you think the water in Tehran came from?
Masouleh, Gilan Province
Masouleh’s taking it way back to 10th century AD.
Salt caves south of Iran.
The world’s longest salt cave is located in Qeshm.
Who said you need to cut trees to create beautiful architecture?
And lastly, for when your brochure fails you…
