US travel magazine rates Pakistan as ‘best holiday destination for 2020’
Pakistan has been named the top holiday destination for travelers for the year 2020 by the United States-based luxury and lifestyle publication Conde Nast Traveler.
“This remarkable country is finally getting the focus it deserves.Because this is a place of exquisite landscapes, where green spaces are overlooked by towering mountains. In fact, Pakistan has more peaks taller than 22,965 feet than China and Nepal combined, making it an almost magnetic spot for adventure travellers and intrepid hikers,” the website outlines.
Jonny Bealby, founder and CEO of adventure-tour operator Wild Frontiers told the magazine that he was seeing substantive improvements in Pakistan’s tourism industry. “A focus on security measures, which saw the British FCO [Foreign and Commonwealth Office] lift its advice against travel to large parts of the north, and the election of Imran Khan, who has vowed to increase international tourist numbers, has already had an impact,” he said.
Last week, travel company Wild Frontiers named Pakistan as the country to travel to in 2020.
In 2018, the British Backpacker Society had also ranked Pakistan the number one travel destination in the world.
