Pakistan is always seen in the light of dispute and hostility without materializing the quote by Eric Burdon that “Inside each of us, there is the seed of both good and evil. It’s a constant struggle as to which will win. And one cannot exist without the other”. There needs to be an understanding where we do not stereotype every Pakistani as an enemy. They are also in need for a peaceful and friendly environment. So, plan a trip to Pakistan and find out what it has to offer. Here are 10 reasons why you should visit Pakistan.

1. The landscape of Pakistan offers visual treats. The terrain of North Pakistan is worth visiting for the mighty mountain peaks of the Karakoram Range.

2. The mouth watering Pakistani cuisine mostly comprises of the Mughlai cuisine and is a blend of North Indian, Middle Eastern and Central Asian cuisines. The food is aromatic and spicy in its own unique fashion.

6. If you are a lover of Gazal, Qawwali, Shayari, or any type of Classical or Sufi music, it is the place where you would wish to be, for experiencing these lively sessions of soulful music. Yes Tahir Shah is also from Pakistan but surely he is not the face of Pakistani music 🙂

NASA engineers have also declared them to be the best footballs ever made.

9. One should visit Pakistan to experience the hospitality of Pakistani people. The people are very helpful and cordial in nature. The goodness of these people might have not been highlighted, but the country has the same kind of people as we have in our countries.
