Why Islamabad Pakistan Should Be On Your Travel List

Being the capital of a country gives it some merit! Located at the base of the Margalla Mountains, Islamabad is scenically situated with greenery and clean air all around. Unlike the rest of the country, Islamabad doesn’t look like it is in a developing country like Pakistan. Here you can find several branded stores, malls and a variety of restaurants and eateries. A lot of people might argue that Islamabad itself might not be so great a tourist attraction and I am inclined to agree.

Top things to do in Kumrat

When I hear ‘travel’, I don’t think luxury hotels and skyscrapers. That is as far from the picture my mind draws up as it possibly can be. Quite the opposite actually, for me the notion of travel is more of a getaway to nature, a technological disconnect; no tall buildings, bustling roads or beaches infested with people, but clean air, clear skies and, stargazing instead. There’s something inherently attractive about Mother Nature that always tugs at me, extending an invitation to bask in its inexplicable healing power. Fortunately for me, Pakistan is completely full of these untouched places of beauty […]

Pakistan the Safe Way

Pakistani traditional clothing- shalwar kameez. Should you go? Terrorist attacks. Suicide bombings. Taliban madrasses. Unfortunately, all we hear about Pakistan in the Western media are horrific stories of a war torn nation.

Many travelers can't fathom stepping one foot on Pakistani soil and stay clear of the Islamic country after categorizing it as an off-limit zone. According to the research I conducted before making the decision to travel to Pakistan, the probability for being a […]
