Iran's tourism authorities have recorded 62 million night stays during the Iranian New Year holidays, known as Norouz, which indicates a 21% growth. 
"The number of visitors to tourism sites during March 15-April 1 also increased by 33% to reach 99 million," said Mohammad Moheb-Khodaei, the deputy head of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization  in an interview with JameJam Online on Monday.

The official noted that nearly 18 million travels were recorded during the New Year holidays, adding that unlike previous years, three waves of holiday trips were witnessed during Norouz.
Moheb-Khodaei believes that well-thought promotional programs and a higher number of seasonal events and ceremonies have made a great contribution to this achievement.
