Iran’s Shiraz City Looking to Become Health Tourism Hub

The southwestern Shiraz metropolis, capital of Fars Province, is already one of Iran’s top tourist destinations, but it is increasingly focusing on health and medical tourism as a major revenue stream to boost its economic prospect under increasingly tough economic conditions facing the country.

During the current Iranian year that began in March, the city has managed to attract a growing number of visitors, both local and foreign, looking to use its health tourism facilities. Foreign tourists are expected to find the city more attractive since they can employ its services cheaper due to a significant devaluation of the rial in recent months as a result of reimposed US sanctions.

I think losing your travel documents, money, and your phone in a foreign country is on the top place in the list of top things you must be scared of when you go abroad. You can google the list of the cities famous for their pickpockets and purse-snatchers. Now, if you’re coming to Iran, hearing the financial news in Iran might worry you a little; and in fact, the tourist centres and crowded areas are no exception in this case. But statistics show that Iran is almost a lot better and safer than other countries in this case. But, only in case you want to travel with peace of mind, keep these points in mind: • You don’t have carry your passport with you to everywhere you go; only a copy of that would suffice. No one usually asks for it. • You will need cash, but you shouldn’t carry all the cash you have with you. • I suggest you to put your eggs in different baskets, I mean split your money and put it in different places so in case you get robbed, you will have some money left. • It’t better to use bags and handbags instead of backpack in crowded places like bazaars; so you can always watch the zippers. • And always keep an eye on your phone!
