    4.Clothing

    men: As it so often is, the dress code for men is simple as can be. You could sum it up in just a few words: everyday street wear. Leave your shorts and flip flops at home and you’re basically good to go. We found long-sleeved, cotton or linen shirts to be the perfect attire for men.

    women: hijab. When in public, you are obliged by law to cover your hair at all times. So yes, in the hotel lobby and in the restaurant but no, not in your room or at a friend’s house. There is no restriction on how colourful your hijab can be, anything goes.

    NoteSeptember is the best time to travel to Iran, because the weather is good, Neither hot nor cold. Average Temperature in Tehran is usually 24 °C during the days.
