IFP – The port city of Hendijan in southern Iran, a historical town which dates back to 3,000 years ago, is known as the pearl of the Persian Gulf thanks to its beautiful beach.
Hendijan Port in Khuzestan province has joint water border with the Persian Gulf. Itis the last area in Khuzestan province which connects it to Bushehr Province.
The port is famous for its delicious fish and shrimps which are unique across the country so much so that fishers from other regions flock to the area for fishing.
Local people mostly rely on the export of fish and shrimps but the area has lots of other natural capacities which have not yet been recognized.
The area’s natural capacities can thus turn it into an appropriate place for investment. To this end, the government can lead the private sectors to invest in the area and take advantage of untapped natural resources of the area.
The town also has lots of other attractions for Iranian and foreign tourists including Bahrakan Trade Port and Dehnou village.
Hendijan River is another tourist attraction of the area which plays a key role in the daily lives of its people. The river used to be a key trade water way in the whole region making the area a trade hub. Today, even more than 100-ton boats can move along the river without any problem.
