Only in Pakistan

Warning: This is a rant about ‘oh poor me!’ – a self pitying lament about my good life. If you don’t like rants – don’t read any further! 😀

Phuket: a great holiday in the sun

“How many times can you go to expensive places for a holiday? We spent four nights and five days in Phuket – it cost us only hundred and fifteen thousand for the tickets and the hotel stay. The food, transport, entertainment and shopping expenses were extra. Holiday in Thailand is economical, you get to visit a foreign place, do a bit of sightseeing, relax on one of the most beautiful white sanded beaches, laze around in your deck chair, take a stroll along the seashore, read a book. If you feel a quick energy burst, you can explore the ocean, go parasailing, or hire a boat and go fishing and snorkeling around the coast. If that sounds too energetic, you can have a pedicure or a massage under the shade of the tree, or just relax and sip your fresh coconut… what else do you need?” says Sadia

Pakistan: perception vs. reality

Natural Divide

If you Google “travel Pakistan,” or “Pakistan travel,” (this is back in December 2009), you get loads of travel warnings and advisories followed by a couple of international travel websites like Lonely Planet and Virtual Tourist that give you a brief insight into Pakistan and then it degenerates from there. There is not one solid website on Pakistan; no, not even the official tourism website done by Pak government. Actually, what you notice is the lack of any real information on Pakistan, and what stuff there is mostly all negative.
