“You get to know your true friends and their real persona while travelling.” – Anonymous
So join in fellow travel enthusiasts and hop on to this journey in form of a world travel guide. This is for continued inspiration and motivation brought to our lives when visiting newer, stranger places. Tasting exotic and strange foods, and understanding how diverse and different life is when we step out of our comfort zone called home and step in to newer territories!
One would imagine that with increased mobility afforded by today’s technology, ease and awareness thanks to the Internet, ‘tourism’ would be a word synonymous with the Pakistani youth and population. Yet the numbers for international as well as domestic tourism are surprisingly low for a country like Pakistan, which on the domestic front is replete with opportunities for adventure, family, and eco-tourism and in terms of world tourism opportunities, houses a promising, entrepreneurial youth ready to spread its wings high and above.
Along with the dawn of smart technology and hyper connectivity, the youth of Pakistan is beginning to start considering the possibilities of stepping onto foreign shores as well, gone are the days of the yore when travelling to distant shores was a luxury afforded to the bureaucracy or the merchant seamen, today with greater access to information, efforts on the part of public and private enterprises for cultural assimilation, a very palpable desire is felt in the young populace of Pakistan to seek out a solo trip, or with a group of friends to often neglected places on our bucket list such as the streets of Havana playing classic Hispanic jazz, small hamlets of rural England, or even the naturally beautiful valleys of Azerbaijan.
Perhaps, what really stops us short of travelling the length and breadth of our exquisite country is a truckload of wrongful perception and doubt drilled down upon us by the local media creating doubts in our minds about the ways and accessibility of areas we would otherwise throng to go to.
Additionally, on the local tourist front, the gap in what the Country has to offer and prevailing tourism numbers provides a great opportunity not just on an economic front, but also to the people in letting go off their deadbeat routines and bring a fresher perspective to life.
It is with this purpose, that we embark upon a mission to provide an open platform to people who travel, love to travel, love to read about travel and basically are dying to get their backpacks ready for both domestic and international travel!
It becomes even more important for ventures like us to provide a platform to budding travel vloggers and writers to share their experience as the world has truly gotten within the cusp of our imagination and in the reach of our handheld devices with internet’s advent. The urge to travel, to share and re-live the experiences vicariously through the eyes of other people is unmatchable.
And what better way to do all of this under the umbrella of an aggregating platform that welcomes all and sundry to share their travel experiences across the globe and inspire their countrymen to contribute working towards building a real, softer image of Pakistan, by being welcoming hosts and a truly exuberant tourist nation.
We intend to host this website as a world travel guide, a door for all travel enthusiasts who venture into excursions both international and local, to learn about strange cultures, new traditions and befriend new people on the way and would like to share their views about the most beautiful places in the world they experience while travelling and being an active part of all things tourism.
