FeelIran is the name of the largest Iranian Famtrip. This two-week program is the cultivation of a whole year’s attempts by Hoda Rostami’s team, she herself is one of Iran’s influences in the field of tourism. She has been invited to such events in other countries in previous years and is familiar with such events and has learned many lessons from their standards, and now has brought those standards to Iran so that she would be able to hold a similar event in Iran with the help of her young team and the private sector. In the following parts we will introduce this revolutionary event in the field of tourism in Iran.
Famtrip is a kind of familiarization trip in which those who are active in the field of tourism travel to the tourist destination themselves and gain a firsthand experience of the place and use this experience to offer a better one to audiences and their customers.
FeelIran is an Iranian Famtrip based on the ability of social networks’ influencers that attempts to offer a real picture of Iran’s tourist capacities to its audience.
The team that is holding this event is comprised of a group of young Iranians, and at the core of this group are Kimia Khosravi and Hoda Rostami, two female Iranian tourists. The RoStudio team, which is in fact the creative studio of Hoda Rostami, has been able to pay for some of the needed capital for this event by preparing some other events and selling their travel office, and also the audience of this type of projects and those who are interested have also helped and participated so that this Iranian Famtrip could turn into reality.
FeelIran has been held to compensate for one of the largest weaknesses in Iran’s tourism industry. Iran is one of the most ancient civilizations in history that is also located in a special geographical position and thus has an amazing nature as well, and with a rich culture, proper infrastructures, and a rare level of security in the region of the middle east, is considered one of the cheapest tourist destinations in the world; but the most important problem of tourism in Iran is that all these capacities and potentials are affected by the news and political matters and the picture of Iran that has been formed in the mind of the people of the world is influenced by media propaganda and is different from reality. And so, FeelIran project is among the first steps in order to reconcile this negative image that has been formed toward Iran.
In FeelIran, thirteen influencers from Turkey, Russia, Italy, Ukraine, India, and China travel around Iran in a two-week program and as ambassadors for their audience will touch different dimensions of Iran. These influencers will experience Iranian dishes, handicraft, tourism infrastructures like hotel, restaurant, transportation system, and shopping centers of Iran, and will talk of their experience in Iran for their audience. You can follow their experiences via #feeliran and #letsfeeliran.
