The potential of maritime tourism of the southwestern province of Bushehr will be promoted at Tehran’s national tourism fair, the provincial tourism chief has said. This will help Bushehr to facilitate its growth as a coastal tourist destination.

The 16th Tehran International Tourism Exhibition will be held at the Tehran Permanent International Fairground from February 7 to 10, Esmaeil Sajadimanesh said on Tuesday.

The high capacity of Bushehr in the field of maritime and coastal tourism will make it stand out, the tourism chief said adding that all capacities will be used to introduce the province’s natural, historical, and touristic attractions At the Bushehr pavilion.

Earlier in October, the deputy tourism minister Ali-Asghar Shalbafian said that directing the investment capacities and enthusiastic investors to the maritime tourism sector will facilitate the growth of Bushehr as a coastal tourist destination.

Back in November, the official announced that to facilitate maritime tourism, recreational piers are planned to be built in Bushehr province.

It is important to build piers to utilize the maritime tourism capacities of the province and facilitate sea travel for tourists, he said.

It is to be noted that the coastal region, ports, islands, and coasts of the Persian Gulf are among Bushehr’s greatest natural gifts.

Back in February, the Ministry of Tourism and the Ministry of Transport and Urban Development signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to develop maritime tourism and make the best use of its potential in the southern and northern coasts of the country.

Promoting the culture of using the sea as a tool to increase social vitality, developing coastal activities in the form of environmentally friendly plans and programs, and creating the necessary grounds for cooperation and exchange of knowledge and information was also among the topics of the agreement.

With over 6,000 years of history and significant monuments from the Elamite, Achaemenid, Parthian, and Sassanid eras, Bushehr is one of Iran’s most important historical centers. Besides its cultural heritage, beautiful beaches and lush palm groves make it an attractive destination for world travelers.
