Most of the foreign visitors of Iran are struck by another feature of the Iranians - the amazing dignity and good manners of the locals. Of course, these qualities affect appearance, giving people the charm of confidence. It is not customary to impose services here, but local residents will always kindly help a bewildered tourist. Most Iranian women are quite educated and erudite, they travel a lot. And not only in their own country, where there are not very many places for a pleasant stay. Representatives of the middle class visit at least once a year other countries, keenly interested in art and cultural attractions. Unusual behavior of young girls is striking: in a country where alcohol is under the strictest ban, adolescents and youths are distinguished by calmness and friendliness.
I understand some countries in the Middle East have harsh laws forbidding premarital sex. Apparently it is punishable by a lengthy prison term in Dubai for instance--even for tourists. Is this an issue in Iran? I am not sure if I understand your question correctly but if you mean unmarried couple are allowed to share a room in a hotel, this is a bit complicated as for Iranian citizens in such a circumstance they are required by law to provide marriage certificate but I heard from different sources this regulation is being tolerated for tourists. Thanks for your reply. Actually what I had in mind is, I'll be touring with a group and some of the women will be single. If I hit it off with one of the women, is it a problem for her to visit or stay in my hotel room or me to visit or stay in hers? I'm sure you can manage this in some particular hotels. But normally it's not allowed to share rooms for unmarried couples.

The Iranian shrine city of Mashhad has much to offer visiting Iraqis wanting to escape violence at home - but locals have mixed views about their guests. The ticket agent at the gate in Mehrabad airport, Tehran, is irate. The men, some wearing unassuming pants and shirts and others sporting more traditional Arab dress, search for somewhere to set their baggage down and tie some string around it. Cheerful, attractive flight attendants politely ask standing passengers to take their seats so others can pass. The Iranian businessman sitting next to me, a resident of Tehran, tells me he has no love for the Iraqis either. Iranians might have engaged in such a ritual up until just a few years ago, but now it seems like the number of Iranians who observe pre-flight prayers lessens with each passing day. Upon arrival in Mashhad, second most populous city and home to some of its most sacred sites, Iranian and Iraqi passengers alike are handed golden branches at the gate. The young girls staffing the kiosks usually speak enough broken Arabic to hammer out a deal with the Iraqis, who speak their own broken Farsi. Since the escalation of the Iraqi violence in and the appearance of Isis, the so-called Islamic state group, and its capture of a swathe of the country, the number of Iraqi Shia pilgrims to Iran has risen fast.
