Hi everyone:

These are all pictures of Tehran the capital of Iran, the biggest city in the Middle East with a metro population of 14M.

Here you can see the other side of Iran that western media does not want u to see. It's nothing like the news or whatever the stupid western media makes it look in front of the world.
It's a very nice city with great hospitable people and architecture.

>>>>>It is also a very safe place for all people and tourists.

*******women in Iran are required by the government to wear head scarves and an overcoat, which really sucks and if you are a female visitor going to Iran you need to cover your hair with a scarf. But it's not as bad as it seems and in some ways it can be stylish.

*******Also this is not a political thread and I kindly ask you not to post any politics related posts here please.

******Tehran is more modern than historic. Iran is filled with amazing historic attractions but they are mostly in other cities, such as Shiraz & Isfahan. You may visit the Iran forum to see some of those sights.

>>>>>>>>One of the major concers of most people is that if Iran is a safe place to visit and if Iranians are friendly people and they are afraid that they may dislike western countries but the total opposite is true. Persian hospitality is one of the most important traits of Iranians and you can find many articles online about it.

Iran's Provinces and their capitals

In the map below I have marked main territories of Tehran, Northern Tehran, East, West, Central and South from

1. Northern Tehran: Wealthy areas , Upper Class
2. East: Middle Class
3. West: Middle Class and Upper Middle Class and Wealthy closer to the North East Corner and center of the area (shahrake Qarb)
4. Central Tehran: Middle Class
5. South: Lower middle class, poor areas in the further south and south end tips of the city

All these orange lines are Tehran main has as many highways as Los Angeles and New York...

Below are the name of major neighborhoods of Tehran Metro area from Wikipedia

Tehran Subway Map- There are still 4-5 more lines under construction and growing to more than 9 lines.

An amazing website for planning your trip to Iran with a huge amount of awesome and useful hints and tips and tour pakcage offers.

It even talks about the dress code as what to wear and when to visit etc.

Below for example is a cool website regarding a tourist agency in the city of Shiraz and their customer review about Iran.

There are hundreds of testimonials in thier website below

Dizin Ski Resort

Dizin is a ski resort situated to the north of Tehran in the Alborz mountain range.

The huge Dizin ski resort was established in 1969 . The ski season in Dizin also lasts longer than European ski resorts(from December to May) because of its high altitude.

The highest ski lift reaches 3,600 m (11,800 ft), making it one of the 40 highest ski resorts in the world.

Dizin ski amenities include two hotels, 19 cottages and five restaurants, villas and private apartments around the Dizin ski resort accommodate thousands of people every year.

Iran looks good. Had it not been for the Iraq war and confrontation with the west , it would have been better than what it is. If Iran could realize its full potential it could have become another developed country of Asia , like Japan.

^^ Thats kind of hard when we arent part of the 'Arabic world'... we are not Arab nor do we speak Arabic :sleepy:

Irans ethnic population structure on has 3% Arabs and they are all in the south towards Iraq. Largest ethnicity are Persians. Iranians are 'Proto Indo European' NOT Arab

IF your talking about the Middle East then I think Israel has one up on us... but Iran is probably one of
