Travel in Pakistan
Hello Jo and Everyone
As I had promised to write about travel in Pakistan, here I am with some useful information for you all. Before I begin, here’s a bit about the population of Pakistan which is 164,741,924.
Tourists usually move towards Northern areas because of their enchanting beauty of mountains, lush green valleys, lakes, rivers, tall trees and some of the oldest forts. The areas one must give a visit are Baltistan, Hunza, Gilgit, Chitral. The best places you can go to are Shigar fort, Baltit fort, Baltoro Glacier, K-2 and Koh Murree. Link
Besides Northern areas, tourists also like to visit Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi. Islamabad is famous for its greenery and some places like Shakar Parian and Shah Faisal masjid (mosque) and the hills surrounding it. I have also been to Islamabad and have visited both the places I’ve mentioned. Don’t give a miss to a visit to Lahore because this city is popular for its food streets. The places you can visit there are Red fort and Badshahi Masjid, there are some more places too but these two are said to be the famous ones. And if you are in Karachi, the first thing you will see here are the beaches, people love to see the Clifton beach and the Manora Island. This city is a shoppers’ paradise too because like other cities, things are not very expensive here.
There is a town named Thatta at a drive of some kms from Karachi. This is an all time tourist attraction due to it’s mosque that has 100 domes. On the way to Thatta, do give a visit to the necropolis of Makli.
I really forgot to mention another lovely city called Hyderabad. This is another big city of the Province Sindh. It’s at a drive of around 5hrs from Karachi and is famous for its handicrafts.
What things one must be careful about? There is no such thing as foreigners are welcomed wholeheartedly. But I would like to advise you something. When you shop never buy anything without bargain because, sellers tell prices quite high when they see a foreigner in their shops.

As you all know sometimes due to some politial reasons, Pakistan is under the shadow of violence so you should be careful about this also. The rest goes well here.
