Question: I am planning a trip to Iran ( north to south )... I just got my visa and wanted to check in with the current situation in Iran. Is it still safe to visit?
Answer: Iran is quite safe and what is depicted on the media is not the reality but a narrow focus on the negative points due to the political controversies. Iranians are helpful and civilized and so keen to the tourists. Plenty of solo travelers both men and women enter Iran each day and travel in the country hassle-free.
