Many Iranians Can’t Wait for Your Visit
World-class art, high fashion and an ancient culture — but very few tourists. That’s Iran, for the moment, as the nation prepares for a post-sanctions world in which travel between it and the West could suddenly take off. While there are still hard-liners who consider the West an enemy, some interpret “Death to America” chants as a rejection of foreign control, rather than a literal threat. As plenty of Iranians look forward to a more open future, some travel fans, eager to visit Persia, worry it’ll be “ruined” by tourism.
