There’s a common reaction among all foreigners who visit Iran: astonishment! Every visitor I speak to is pleasantly surprised about the disparity between what they perceived Iran to be like before they went there and what they found when they arrived. Its landscape, its history, and its hospitality are unexpected wonders awaiting travelers.
I’m sure that you, dear reader, would have read or heard about Iran’s United Nations sanctioned ad-nauseam. I’m also confident that there are many other facts about Iran that you have not heard of:
- It has twenty Unesco World Heritage sites (compared to Greece’s 18)
- It has many ski resorts, including Dizin, standing tall at 3,600m
- It has an incredibly vibrant contemporary art scene
- The culinary experience is objectively phenomenal
- It’s untouched landscapes are host to thousands of nature lovers camping every year
- It’s hospitality leaves visitors speechless
There is an undeniable disparity between people’s perception about Iran and the reality. We see that as our opportunity. At Pintapin, we are determined to play a key role in reintroducing Iran to travelers at scale. That is a purpose we believe in. That is why we will prosper. That is why I want to be a part of this success.
We have an incredibly talented and ambitious team, led by Mark Clift, who are all behind this mission. And we will not stop until every single one of you esteemed readers of this post, your friends, your families, and your colleagues visit Iran at least once. We have a lot of work to do. So go on then, book your trip now and let me know you’re coming (by the way, majority of you can get your visa on arrival).
