It can help to avoid direct eye contact and try not to smile, as these can be misinterpreted as "boldness" and evidence of promiscuity. Try not to take rides in privately-owned vehicles if you are alone. In Tehran there are many taxi agencies you can call, these are safest. Do not wear any gold jewelry, do not travel alone at night.
