I am planning a trip to Iran in April. I am very excited about this trip but still, I am a little doubtful about what to expect there. I have read too many reviews that the Iranian people are amazing and very friendly but I like to be well-prepared before having a memorable trip.
I am an 18-year-old Australian blonde and am a bit worried that I might not be accepted by the locals. The other question is are there any specific dress codes for men?
Thank you for your information.
Being blond is not something strange in Iran, some people in this country are also blond.
First off, let us tell you that Iran is quite a safe country and the Iranians are very friendly and hospitable. However, like anywhere else, with some common sense, you will be on the safe side. Keep away from unfamiliar places, especially at night. Be friendly to the people, and they will return the gesture. Don’t be scared or shocked if Iranians approach you, they want to communicate, it all comes from the hospitality behavior of these people. The biggest majority of Iranians that you will meet will be very hospitable and friendly. Read more about safety in Iran. Once you are in Iran try to relax and have fun, respect the culture and people and you will get ten times back in kindness.
The dress code for men is not something complicated. Avoid wearing shorts and sleeveless shirts and all is done. Long trousers, short-sleeved T-shirts, flip flops, and sandals are all acceptable.
