When I visit Kish Island-Iran, most Kish people were not friendly to Asian. It was very hard to get a good Hotel, every one look unhappy if any asian come to the beach for swimming, and the worst part, I was not allowed to enter a mal by the sercurity. It is almost impossible to see any asian in the mall (actually, there was so many asian in kish island, mostly they come for visa run). What a bad experience.

There are more women visiting the island than men. This may be due to the more relax and free atmosphere women enjoy on the island.
