A place where tourists can learn about the culture, history, and life-style of Kish Island’s native residents, can be a perfect destination for attracting tourists, which complements the modern trendy sites of the island, said the CEO of Kish Free Zone Organization (KFZO), Ali Asghar Mounesan. Visiting the Kish Native House of Anthropology (Kish House), Mounesan noted the KFZO tourism deputy’s readiness to closely collaborate with the senior tribal heads of the island to plan for expanding tourism industry and increase the number of visitors through joint meetings. A visit to Kish House should be included as part of tour packages offered to tourists. The house can become a center of cultural tourism in the area, he asserted. The Kish House is situated in the ‘Sefin’ region on the island and dates back to around 200 years ago, covering an area of 200 sq.m. The local residents of the island have transformed the traditional residence to a museum-like site to showcase the culture and history of the indigenous inhabitants of Kish.
