FAQ

Gear (2)

Category: Gear

When going on a winter sports trip, it’s important to bring appropriate gear to ensure your safety and comfort. Here are some essential items to consider packing:

  1. Ski or snowboard equipment
  2. Warm clothing
  3. Goggles and sunglasses
  4. Hat and neck warmer
  5. Sunscreen and lip balm
  6. Backpack
  7. Hand and foot warmers
  8. First aid kit
  9. Phone and charger

Remember, always check the weather forecast and trail conditions before heading out, and follow all safety guidelines and rules of the resort or mountain.

Category: Gear

When it comes to ski and snowboard rentals, there is a noticeable variation in quality. However, none of the options can compare to the high standards found in modern European ski resorts. While the equipment may be slightly older, it is generally well-maintained.

It is important to carefully consider the ski materials offered by rental shops, and don’t be afraid to request alternative options. It is always better to speak up and ensure that you are comfortable with the gear you will be using.

If you happen to own your own equipment, it is highly recommended that you bring it with you. This will guarantee that you are using gear that you are familiar with and have tested before.

Iran (4)

Category: Iran

Yes, Iran is generally safe to visit. Travelers often report positive experiences, noting the country’s low crime rate, welcoming hospitality, and efficient healthcare system. As with any travel destination, it’s advisable to stay aware of your surroundings and respect local customs.

Category: Iran

Iran is a country rich in culture and history, and one of the things that makes it unique is the dress code of its people. According to Iranian law, all women are required to wear Islamic hijab. However, they are very modest in picking their Veil or Hijab. On your arrival, you may be shocked by the way how Iranian clothing is stylish. Women usually take great care of how they look, and they wear clothes with a great sense of style.

In this article, we will discuss the dress code for both men and women in Iran, what to wear in Iran in winter, and what to expect when visiting mosques and holy shrines.

Dress Code for Women in Iran

Women in Iran must always cover their head with a scarf and wear a long coat (called mantua in Farsi) over their regular clothes. It’s the law, and not only for women, have men also to wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts too. As Iran changed over the years you don’t need to wear socks all the time anymore and your sleeves can also be 3/4 these days.

The scarf should cover the hair and neck, leaving the face visible. The coat should be loose and long, covering the hips and buttocks. It’s important to note that the coat should not be tight-fitting or reveal the body shape.

While the dress code may seem restrictive, it’s important to understand that it’s part of the Iranian culture and should be respected. Women who visit Iran should dress modestly and adhere to the dress code, particularly in public places.

Dress Code for Men in Iran

Men in Iran are also expected to dress modestly. They should wear long pants and long-sleeved shirts, particularly in public places. It’s important to note that shorts and sleeveless shirts are not allowed in public places, including restaurants and cafes.

What to Wear in Iran in Winter

If you are wondering what to wear in Iran in winter, the answer is that it’s the same as other times of the year. While you can put a hat on your scarf, it doesn’t mean that you can only wear a hat. It’s important to dress in layers to keep warm, particularly in areas with colder temperatures.

What to Expect When Visiting Mosques and Holy Shrines

While Iran is a conservative country and women need to be fully covered up at all times in public, it doesn’t mean that you need to worry about that. Rules of Iranian clothing are not observed strictly for tourists and foreigners. For instance, don’t worry if your hair is sticking out of the scarf. Apart from a small percentage of older women, most young girls only cover the top of their head.

However, it’s important to note that the only places in Iran that have very strict rules about hijab are the mosques and holy shrines. To enter some of these places, such as Imam Reza Shrine in Mashhad or Hazrate Masoumeh Holy Shrine in Qom, you must wear a “Chador”. The chador is a large piece of fabric that covers your entire body from head to toe. You can always find one at the entrance gate.

In conclusion, Iran is a unique and beautiful country that has its own cultural traditions, including the dress code. While it may seem restrictive, it’s important to respect the culture and dress modestly, particularly in public places. However, rules are not strictly observed for tourists and foreigners, so you can still dress comfortably and stylishly. When visiting mosques and holy shrines, it’s important to wear a chador to respect the sanctity of these places.

Category: Iran

For Women: Female travelers in Iran are expected to cover their hair and wear long clothing on their arms and legs. However, wearing a traditional Chador is not mandatory; a scarf to cover the hair is sufficient.

Scarves are usually worn loosely, and it’s acceptable for some hair to show, especially in larger cities. Pants should cover the ankles but do not need to be wide – tight jeans are popular among young Iranian women. Long skirts or dresses are also suitable as long as they cover the skin completely. Tops should be loose-fitting, covering the buttocks, arms, and cleavage.

Alternatively, the cleavage can be covered with a scarf, and sleeves should extend below the elbow. Iranian women often wear tunics or longer cardigans and are heavily influenced by Western fashion. Open shoes and painted nails are not a problem. Young girls should start to follow these dress codes from puberty.

For Men: The rules for men are less strict, but shorts are not allowed. T-shirts are fine, provided they have subdued designs without provocative prints. Ties are not common but are accepted. Sandals are very popular in Iran. However, sturdier footwear is recommended depending on the trip and excursions.

General: Iran is a country where hospitality is valued highly, and Western guests are warmly welcomed. While the dress codes have relaxed in major cities like Tehran, Isfahan, and Shiraz in recent years, it’s important to respect these rules, especially at religious sites. Contrary to some misconceptions, there is no obligation to wear dark colors. In fact, light colors are recommended during the summer.
