Iranians aspire to boost tourism

Tour operators hope new government will improve the industry stunted by the country's international reputation.

    Iran is not a top destination for most tourists, but tour operators are hoping the country's new president and government will give their industry, which has been underdeveloped for years, a higher priority.

    In Iran, there are no shortage of world class tourist attractions, including a newly listed ancient palace.
