UNESCO Tag Forecast to Draw More Foreign Tourists to Yazd

Sunday, October 22, 2017 - 10:22

During the first half of the current Iranian calendar year, almost 50,000 foreign tourists arrived in the province, central Iran, which represents an increase of 11 percent year on year.

“A total of 51,820 foreign tourists set foot in Yazd province during the first six months of the current year while majority of the inbound travelers came from France, Germany, Italy, Spain, China and the Netherlands,” Mohammadreza Nasiri, a provincial tourism official says, ISNA reports.

“The province hosted 47,017 foreigners during the same period last year while the number of such holidaymakers added up to 113,500 over the past year,” he explained.

Rehabilitation of the hospitality sector, reconstruction of sanitary services along with building more roadside welfare services are atop agenda to make the best use of the tourism potentials, the official said, adding “Five 5-star hotels are being constructed in the cities of Ardakan, Meybod and Yazd (the capital of the province)”.

With its winding lanes, forest of badgirs (wind catchers), mud-brick houses, atmospheric alleyways and centuries of history, Yazd is a delightful place to stay, referring as a ‘don't miss’ destination by almost all travel associates in the region. The city has an interesting mix of people as well, some 10 percent of whom follow the ancient religion of Zoroastrianism.
