▪ Bandar Abbas
In the 4th century AH, around the present Bandar Abbas, there was a port and a small village called Soro, named by the geographers of the 14th century AH. Some argue that the "Shahru", the term that Estakhri mentioned as “a small village by the sea” is the same as the "Soro" port.

Qeshm Island is the largest island in Iran, located in the northwest of the Strait of Hormuz. Its length is 115 kilometers and its width varies from 10 to 35 kilometers. Qeshm city is the center of the island in the northeast of the island, with an area of 3 square kilometers and an altitude of 10 meters.
▪ Hara forests
Hara forests (mangroves) are features of the ecosystem of the southern shores of Iran, which are sporadically formed from the Strait of Hormuz to the east and the Indian Ocean on the coast of Oman.
Mangrove is an ecosystem that consists of wetlands between the tidal zones of the sea and a collection of unique plants and special animals that are reproduced in the coastal areas and along the ecosystem's lagoon.
Since the Hara forest in Qeshm Island and the southern coasts of Hormozgan province is one of the widest examples in the world, it is of special importance to Iranians and scientists of other nations. These forests are located on the Persian Gulf coast around the port of Laft, north of Qeshm Island and Khamir port.

Tourist attractions, water sports, diving centers, shopping centers, international markets, diverse amenities and accommodations such as five star hotels, motels and modern villas are among the attractions of Kish. The island attracts about one million people annually.
Kish Island was used as a tourist and recreational center during the rule of oppression. After the victory of the Islamic Revolution, the region opened its tourist and economic facilities to the public, until the establishment of a free port on the island, previously approved by the government, was announced through mass media.
The purpose of the plan was to make Kish a suitable market for exporting and importing goods in accordance with Islamic standards, as well as helping islanders. According to the plan, people can import any amount of goods to the island to be exported to the countries of the region. There is also the arrival of goods through a market created on this island
