    Is it safe to travel to Iran?

    I've always been fascinated with Iran, one of the oldest civilizations on the planet. I hear a lot of conflict between Iran and the world powers when I watch or read the news. Despite this, I have a great interest in visiting the country and experiencing it's culture. Has anyone gone there on leisure and is it safe to spend a one or two week vacation there?

    Travelling to Iran is not safe.

    You have seen the news , haven't you? You know that Iran is a place which faces constant attacks and you never know when what can happen. It will surely not be safe for anybody to go over there. I can understand the way you are fascinated and wish to go to Iran but its too dangerous. Even if you do go over there you wont feel secure and it wont be a luxuries trip.

    I'm also very interested in going to Iran and I have a few close friends who are from there. I'm curious if you've actually been there. Of course we all watch the news and know there's an element of danger involved. However, there are many countries that I've travelled to that would be considered highly unsafe by most people...I've even hitchhiked through a large portion of South America by myself (and I'm a girl)!

    I can't recommend that you go, but I would love to hear if someone has been there recently.

    Iran is a really scary place if you ask me... that place is full of shia muslims, and they're usually a bit more extreme than their sunni counterparts, so I'd really think it twice before going there. I'd not recommend you to go there, specially if you know nothing about islam, specially shiite islam. You could get in HUGE troubles. I think jewish people can't even get in there, or people who's been to Israel lately. So... I'd never go to that place, I'm sure I'd end up getting killed!

    I had an Iranian friend and she said that not all places in Iran are scary to go for a visit as what had been shown on media news all over the world. There are also some places that are safe.

    Perhaps a few decades ago i would have visited Iran because i agree it has great history and sounds like a fascinating place to visit. Now however i would not want to go, the only time i will travel there is if i am forced into military service and deployed on an Iranian mission. Perhaps in a few decades if there is peace and stability in that region but no time soon.

    Depends. If you're planning on staying in any big cities, probably not a good idea. If you're gonna stick to the small places then i think its create problem to you..

    Iran is absolutely safe if you stay away from political activities. Iran is generally a very safe place to visit. The people are extremely friendly and hospitable.

    Dealing with the Government beaurcracy can be annoying. I would just keep your wits about you, if you hear of any disturbance or protest anywhere, just go the other way.

    Isfahan is a beautiful city.

    I would prefer going for places like niagara falls ontario canada instead anything which isn't really helpful to me.
