Tourism in Islamic Republic- Pakistan

Tourism in Pakistan has been stated as being the tourism industry’s “next big thing”. Pakistan with its diverse cultures, people and landscapes has attracted 0.7 million tourists to the country, almost double to that of a decade ago.

Pakistan’s tourism industry was in its heyday during the 1970’s when the country received unprecedented amounts of foreign tourists, thanks to the Hippie trail. The main destinations of choice for these tourists were the Khyber Pass, Peshawar, Karachi, Lahore, Swat and Rawalpindi.
