TEHRAN – Tourist attractions across the Persian Gulf island of Kish in southern Iran attracted over 159,000 visitors during the Iranian new year holidays (Noruz).
A total of 159,264 people visited the historical sites and natural sights throughout the island, CHTN reported on Wednesday.
Harireh ancient city, Safari Park, and Karina Cruise Ship received the topmost visitors during the period, the report added.
Amongst the Persian Gulf islands, Kish is the more luxurious and developed. Except for its unique nature, such as its waters and shallow beaches, the tourist attractions of this charming island are due to its rich historical background as well as its kind and hospitable people.
The pristine and beautiful nature, the meeting of land and sea, the clear sky, the pleasant air, and the pleasurable reverberation of the waves create such a sense of calm that one cannot even distinguish between imagination and reality.
Nowadays, about one million foreign and domestic tourists travel to the island every year and it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Iran as it has magnificent attractions such as Kariz Underground City, Harireh Ancient City, Marjan Beach, Bird Garden, Ocean theme park, and Grand Recreational Pier.
