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.
