As a much-needed breath of fresh air, the famous and reputed Forbes magazine has included Pakistan in the list of ‘Top 10 coolest places to go in 2019’.
This is a much-needed push that the incumbent government needed as they are trying the best in their capacity to bring back tourism to Pakistan and improve its global image. The writer Sara Barbieri suggested the readers to visit Pakistan and enjoy the scenic beauty that Shigar and Hunza have to offer.
“Explore the valleys of Hunza, Shigar and Khaplu via the renowned Karakoram Highway’’ – wrote the writer, a specialist working with luxury travel website GeoEx.
‘’This little-visited region in the far northeast of the country offers the kind of startlingly striking scenery that compels you to gaze from the window without blinking, for fear of missing a moment of the majesty of the landscape — or one of the astounding suspension bridges that cross the surging rivers filled with snowmelt” – Sara further wrote in the article.
“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.”
The other nine countries that made it to the Forbes list are: Bhutan, Madagascar, Colombia, Mexico, Ethiopia, Mongolia, Rwanda, the Turkish Rivera and Portugal.
British Airways just recently resumed their operations in Pakistan after a decade of suspension due to security reasons. This new advancement will surely improve Pakistan’s global image.
