    You have to go to the sea. There are two places where u can enjoy: 1. For women there is a place, I don't know the exact address, where u can enjoy the sea from 12 AM to 8 PM.
    2.For men there is no forbidden place. Anywhere they can go into water and enjoy themselves.
    You have to sea the Bazars too. I can't Imagine Kish without Bazars.There are many Bazars, but I like this listmore than others:
    1.Maryam ( It's near the sea )
    2.Marjan ( again it's near the sea )
    3.Pardis
    4. Venus

    Sunset by the Greek Ship

    by arashmania Written Jun 17, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Iran

    An attraction for the romantics is watching the sunset by the Greek Ship. Viewers cannot help but be mesmerized by the rainbow that appears when the sun begins to go down. No tourist has bypassed the chance to witness this natural phenomenon. It is as if the sun here is different from the sun seen elsewhere. It is said that many years ago, a Greek cargo ship approached Kish, and for unknown reasons, it ran aground and was unable to leave. The name of the ship was Kula F. It is a mountain of steel; behind which the sun hides and in the moonlight it looks like a floating giant.

    Near the ship, a rest area has been set up and refreshments are served there. Overall, it can provide an unforgettable experience for all.

    Iran

    For those interested in ancient history , a visit to the ancient town of Harireh is a must. Harireh is most probably the town that the renowned Iranian poet, Sa'adi, has referred to in his book 'The Rose Garden'. There are references in the works of Iranian and arab historians to the location of the town on the island. These say that the town was situated in the middle of the northern part, precisely where the ruins are standing today.

    Votives on a ' Venerable Tree '

    by arashmania Written Jun 17, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Iran

    The topography o the Island is such that the surface water flows to a certain part in the north called the Portuguese Valley . Therefore , the area is naturally vegetated and one of the Island's oldest lour trees is there . Around this tree the Derakht-e-Sabz Park has been created.

    The verdant area, the buildings and wooden pavements and fences remind one of the Caspian Sea coast . But what attracts tourists to this spot is the size of this mythical tree.

    The cloths tied to this tree give it a sacred aura and that is the exactly what some people believe .Its interesting to know that the native people thay says this very old tree its HOLY, most probably , visitors and the new residents of the Island are the ones who promoted this idea.

    The Derakht-e-Sabz Park adjacent to the historical town of Harireh, Providing a pleasant atmosphere for the visitors to Harireh to relax and rest.

    Greek Ship

    This old, rusty ship seems to be the most popular sight, maybe due to be fresh seabreeze and sunset view. A small restaurant at the spot.
