In order to get acquainted with Iran’s tourist attractions, a startup, in collaboration with Ali Reza Aghasi and Hoda Rostami, invited a group of professional and worldwide influencers on a two-week trip to visit some part of Iran. They visited historical and cultural attractions, interacted with local people, explore the markets and enjoyed Iranian food at local restaurants. Eventually, the image presented by them could attracted the world’s attentions to a lesser-known destination in the world.
An image that had previously received less attention from the younger generation due to mainstream media propaganda.
FEEL IRAN, in social media alone, is effective communication platform in introducing the attractions of the Iranian tourism industry.
Alireza Aghasi explained more about FEEL IRAN vision and plans.
