Rising Pakistan: Pakistan included in top 10 coolest places of the World for Tourism in 2019
ISLAMABAD - The negative perception about Pakistan has been changing with time. Over the years, terrorism in Pakistan has also reduced, which adds up to more and more people coming in to explore this beautiful country. Forbes too has placed Pakistan in its top 10 list of the places to visit in 2019.
“Explore the valleys of Hunza, Shigar and Khaplu via the renowned Karakoram Highway,” suggests Sara Barbieri, a specialist with GeoEx. “Add to this the warm welcome of the people, the glacial blue of Attabad lake, the centuries of history, the juxtaposition of granite to greenery, the chance to walk through an age old-apricot orchard along water channels cut by hand, and the blazing snow-covered glory of Rakaposhi, and you must acknowledge there is a grand adventure to be had,” she added.
Promoting Pakistan tourism, Finance Minister Asad Umar also shared Forbes list of the coolest places to visit in 2019.
