List down the places that you need to visit
One of the most important parts of visiting Pakistan or any other country is seeing the world-famous tourist spots. In Pakistan, you may find yourself with a selection of places to visit. If you have little time, you’ll be thankful to have a prepared itinerary.
A great way to save you from this situation is to plan before your visit so that you can save time and go to all the famous places at the same time. To save you from scouring the web for the best spots to visit in the country, we have compiled the ones we recommend the most:
- Boyun village
- Passu cones
- Phander lake.
Always carry some cash with you
During your time in the country, you may need to whip out your wallet now and then. Whether it be for food, services, transportation, bringing some Pakistani Rupee at all times will come in handy during your travels.
Another important thing that you need to remember about the country is that it’s not that up to date with cashless transactions. Instead, you’d have to find money exchanges to help you with your expenses.
As you go around the country buying souvenirs for your loved ones back at home, you may want to try your bargaining skills. Some merchants purposefully give you a higher price at first but once you know how much the item is, you can easily ask them to lower their prices.
However, you should know the difference between bargaining and low-balling since those are two different things. Bargaining is trying to ask for a lower price to reach a deal while low-balling is forcefully asking the merchant to lower the price for an item that you want to buy.
Be aware of some cultural practices
As guests, it’s your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the cultural practices of the country you’re visiting. In Pakistan, there are a handful of things that you need to know to avoid offending the locals and disrespecting the culture itself.
There are various ethnic groups in Pakistan but some of the most common practices that you need to be aware of are the country’s dress code and modest interactions between men and women.
