"The water park will be inaugurated by the next Iranian calendar year. It is nearly as large as the UAE water park and 60 percent of which has been accomplished," he said.
Construction of the water park would prevent outflow of foreign currency, he said, adding, "Opening the park will positively influence the winter tourism in Hormozgan Province."
Earlier in December, Director General of Tehran Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization Rajabali Khosroabadi said that the number of foreign visitors in Tehran during the current Iranian calendar year (stated on March 21, 2014) rose by 270 percent comparing to similar period last year.
