More than 85,000 foreign tourists visited Isfahan Province in Farvardin—the first month of the Iranian year (March 21–April 20 2017), breaking a 40-year record.
This is particularly interesting because foreign tours are generally advised to avoid coming to Iran in the first two weeks of Farvardin, since it is the high travel season for Iranians out to spend the Norouz (Iranian New Year) holidays.
Isfahan, a historical province with two world heritage sites, is a popular destination for both Iranian and foreign holidaymakers, but such an influx of overseas travelers in just one month had not happened since the 1979 Islamic Revolution.
