Pakistan is bestowed with natural beauty and the country is one of the best tourists’ spots. It’s natural beauty knew no bounds and extends from the heights of Himalayas to the depths of the Arabian Sea, from the Snow-covered trees of Murree to the signs of ancient civilizations. In short, the country does have all that any of the wonderous tourists’ spots can offer.
Recently, Condé Nast Traveler, a UK-based luxury and lifestyle publication, named Pakistan as the number one place for tourists. It ranked Pakistan on 1st number among 20 best holiday destinations in 2020. In the starting month of the year 2020, Forbes Magazine enlisted Pakistan in the top under the radar places to visit for 2020.
“The Wild Frontiers pointed out that Pakistan offered ancient Indus civilizations, stretching back 4,000 years, and exciting cities like Lahore with its forts, mosques, and palaces,” read the statement from the magazine.
“The country also owned incredible scenery, particularly in the north, where the three greatest mountain ranges collide,” it added. It also noted that the country is great for trekking, mountain biking, rafting or just cultural tourism.
The UK based online publishing newspaper — The Independent, in an article entitled ‘This is Where the Experts Recommend for Travel Next Year, From Egypt to Pakistan‘ — ranked Pakistan in the second most favorable spot for vacations.
To have a birds-eye view of the country’s tourism potential you need to have a look at the accounts of various people and media houses who deliberately shared the scenic locations of Pakistan on various social media outlets.

Karachi's SeaView area at 12 midnight yesterday. The whole city it seemed was out partying. And the weather was cold, with a steady sea breeze dancing with strong 'Siberian winds.'

Mohenjo Daro – the signs of an ancient civilization
Situated at a distance of about 175 miles from the Arabian Sea, Mohenjo Daro was an ancient city with a population of more than 40,000 people. The city design comprised of a central marketplace, a large common well, a citadel including a granary for storage of surplus food, well-built sanitation, and an underground furnace to heat the water for bathing. An insight of the city shows the signs of the most modern city that were prominent in urban history till 1500 B.C.
Harappa – 5000-year-old Indus Valley City in Pakistan
Located on the bank of River Ravi, Harappa is yet another tourist spot that reminds us of the civilizations of the past. The city did have separate areas for work management as well as for the residence. The urban populations used to live in lower residential areas. The Harappan civilization shared many similarities with the Mohenjo Daro in construction, modes of living.
