Pakistan Becomes A Global Hot Spot For Tourists

As Pakistan becomes the top destination for tourists in 2020, we have come out with an article that highlights why Pakistan is deserving of the title.

For decades, Pakistan’s tourist industry has suffered immensely. The negative media portrayal of the country as a hotbed of extremism deterred many visitors from coming here. However, the tourist industry has lately undergone a massive resurgence. More and more travel vloggers are coming here and sharing their wonderful experiences of visiting the country.

Hence it comes as surprise that Pakistan is named as the number one tourist destination of 2020 by travel magazine Conde Nast. This follows a list of accolades that the country has received which helps reflect the revival of the tourism industry. These include being named as the place for travel by travel company Wild Frontiers.

The diverse and enriching history and culture of Pakistan entices many people from around the world to come and explore it. Ancient cities such as Mohenjo Daro and Harappa allow visitors to explore some of the historical sites of the former Indus Valley Civilization. Major cities such as Lahore host a number of significant historical sites of the former Mughal Empire such as the Badshahi Mosque, Lahore Fort and Shalimar Bagh (which is considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site).

Pakistan is also extremely renowned for its diverse geography with snowy mountain ranges in the north, to the pristine beaches in the south. Pakistan hosts some of the highest mountain peaks in the region. One of the tallest mountains in the world K2 is situated in Pakistan. Pakistan also hosts some of the most beautiful valleys in the world such as Swat. Northern towns such as Murree are also known for their gorgeous scenery and friendly locals, thus making it an immensely popular destination for travelers.
