The Cultural Counsellor of the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran, in his remarks, said Mr. Abdollah Abbasi, said that Iran, with its civilization and history, is full of attractions and places to see.
“It seems that all the attractions of the world, from historical and cultural places to pristine and unique nature, are all gathered in this vast country. Iran has the best four-season climate in the world and is rich in natural mines. It also has a rich cultural heritage, part of which is registered as 19 World Heritage Sites in UNESCO, which is the fourth rank in Asia and the 12th rank in the world,”
Iran, he said is geographically in a unique position between the Persian Gulf and the Caspian Sea; It means that it is the largest lake in the world and has diversity and tourist attractions.
“Iran is one of the most advanced countries in the world in terms of medicine, it has a long history in the field of medicine, and there are many well-known doctors from Iran. In Iran, health tourism includes three sectors, each of which has attractions for tourists who choose Iran for their health trips, including nature therapy tourism/wellness tourism and medical tourism,” he said adding,
“Naturopathy tourism, as its name suggests, is a trip where a person is treated by natural healing resources and services under the supervision of a doctor. Some of the most important resources and medical services related to it are hot springs, Salt Lake, herbal bath, medical massage, medical mud, and sun,”
“This type of tourism, despite having natural phenomena and the wonderful nature of Iran, is highly regarded and has been placed in a special position. The growth of medicinal plants and the presence of Iran’s four-season and wonderful weather have made Iran one of the hubs of naturopathy tourism in the world. The presence of hot water springs in different cities of Iran is effective for treating many diseases, including rheumatism, muscle and joint pain, migraine, and sinusitis, and its clean climate and beautiful environment are also used to improve respiratory, rheumatology, skin and muscle diseases or to pass the time. It is very effective after surgery and illness,” he said.
