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!
