it used to be alright, but nowadays its a total ********. If the BNP get in power, il have to commit suicide cause aint no way im going to pakistan!
Having been to both Pakistan and India, I can tell you that there is a great security threat there at the moment, particularly Pakistan. India has some secure places that are well established within the tourist industry, but in Pakistan I'm afraid there is nothing to fascilitate foreigners. Go there at your own risk, there is great instability.
Security issues aside, for a 20 year old girl, especially a foreign one, it is not safe to be travelling around. If you'll wear western clothing, most men will be staring at you with a rapists look. Be sure to go with as many people as you can if you do decide to go.
Might not be the best idea going to Pakistan any time in the future, especially when you're not a native. Unless the current situation sorts itself out, I'd stay away..
Why are you so desperate to go now? Why not just wait a few years until things have died down? Things are worse there now than they have ever been and the situation isn't improving. Just go to India this time and go to Pakistan another time.
where abouts in pakistan do you wanna go?
i dont know india might of bombed pakistan by then. But worth a try.
Personally I would not go to Pakistan. My girlfriend has just travelled through it, from Karachi to Lahore over the course of about a week. They had a constant armed guard with them and one night they had no less than 24 armed police officers guarding the hotel (Of which they were the only occupants) including guys on the roof and were not allowed to leave.
She made it out safely but whilst she said it was a beautiful country the security situation and the fact all the local guys thought the girls in her group were some sort of freak show doesn't really sound appealing.
Its a real shame as by the sound of it it's a fantastically beautiful country full of mostly lovely people.
