Do And Dont

Pakistan has all the right reasons to be on the top the list of “World’s Most Beautiful Countries” that are worthy to visit. The country is very scenic has all the four seasons and ranges from barren deserts’ wilderness to coasts to sun-kissed beaches, from lush green forests to the snow-capped peaks. Other than natural scenery, Pakistan has several other things to attract all kinds of visitors including Mountaineering, Trekkers, Historian lovers, Religious Tourists, Entrepreneurs, Professionals,  and students. In short, visiting Pakistan can be any tourist’s delight. While travelling to Pakistan, you can follow general do’s and don’ts guidelines, which are as listed below.

Do’s

Pakistan is well-known for its cultural mix and tourists visiting Pakistan are encouraged to widely travel through the country and observe common customs and practices. While traveling from east to west and north to south of Pakistan, you will realize that people do things differently and there is a great cultural shift from city to city. After each 100 kilometer language change, knowing the culture in advance where you are going enhances the travelling experience so you must learn about the Pakistani culture.

Summer is perfect months (May, June, July, August and September) to North Pakistan (Naran, Kaghan, Swat, Murree, Nathiagali, and al over Gilgit Baltistan) specially for mountaineers, trekkers and nature lovers.

Before travelling to Pakistan, get proper information about the region and details of your local embassy to get assistance, in case you need. Pakistani people are well recognized all over the world for their welcoming attitude, hospitality and cheerfulness, so it will take little time to familiarize with them. You need to familiarize with the local conditions and security situation as well. You must always carry valid passport having visa issued to you to travel through Pakistan and keep a fair amount of local currency with you.

Dress up smartly. Short skirts or extremely revealing clothes are not allowed in public. You must try local shalwar kameez as these clothes are quite comfortable during summers. Men can wear jeans with shirts while women’s outfits must be loose jeans, long skirts, baggy pants, tops and tunic style shirts.

Don’ts

Pakistan is an Islamic republic country which follows strict Muslim laws.  Remember, Muslim laws are entirely different from western nations. Dduring the month of Ramadan as the country slows down during this month as observant Muslims fast during day and restaurants and eateries remain closed. But an in-house restaurant in all major hotels is available. On contrary, Ramadan is the best month to visit Pakistan, if you want to learn the festivity of Ramadan and Eid ahead of it and more about Islam.

Federal law prohibits the carriage of certain hazardous materials aboard aircraft in your luggage or on your person and could result in a fine. Visit www.tsa.gov and click on 'prohibited items' for more information.

 

 

Do not visit in summer to the south of Pakistan (Karachi, Sukkur, Multan, and Lahore). If you are from relatively colder countries, you must avoid visiting Pakistan during summer. With average summer midday temperature ranging between 47-51ºC and humid, you will surely not feel like visiting any place outside your hotel room. During summers, most of the days can be uncomfortably warm for you. Winter Autumn and spring are the ideal weathers to visit Pakistan (south), with most of the sunny days.

Don’t hit the hot spots on weekends, if you can avoid it. Important places are swarmed by locals on Sundays afternoons so you may not be able to enjoy the place in true sense. Half of the local markets are also closed on weekends so you cannot enjoy shopping as well so relax at your home and hit the country on weekdays.
