A London-based travel company, Wild Frontiers, has listed Pakistan among its top travel destinations for the year 2020, The Independent reported.
“The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s visit to Pakistan this autumn put the country back into the spotlight,” the publication said.
It added: “Tour operator Wild Frontiers has been tipping Pakistan as the next big destination for a couple of years – it has seen an increase in customer numbers by 20 percent this year compared to 2018.”
In April, The Telegraph had said Pakistan was on its way to becoming tourism’s next big thing.
After coming into power, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) government has been trying hard to improve the infrastructure in order to facilitate the tourists coming to Pakistan. Prime Minister Imran Khan has formed a task force which is responsible for policy making and preparing strategy.
While chairing a meeting regarding the promotion of tourism in the country in Islamabad on Thursday, the prime minister said Pakistan is emerging as an attractive destination on the international tourism map owing to its beautiful natural landscape.
