Top Destinations in Pakistan
Some of the biggest attractions for holiday makers in Pakistan can be found in the cities of Karachi, Lahore, and Islamabad, which means you can start your tour of the country from the moment your flight lands. Lahore lives up to its name as the cultural capital of the country with must-see attractions such as Badshahi Mosque and the Lahore Fort. The coastal city of Karachi boasts tourist highlights including Quaid-e-Azam's Mausoleum and Museum, and for a Pakistani-style seaside adventure, visitors should be sure to stop off at Clifton Beach, one of the world's most popular silver sand beaches, on the coastline of the Arabian Sea. Meanwhile, Peshawar in the north-west is home to traditional bazaars that offer an atmosphere and appearance of the old Pakistan. Nature lovers will fall for the far north Swat Valley, an area often dubbed "the Switzerland of Pakistan" and if you're fascinated by history and archaeology, visits to the ancient ruins of Taxila and Mohenjo-Daro, as well as the ancient city of Thatta, cannot be missed.
