Pakistan


Pakistan is a a large country in South Asia. Located along the Arabian Sea, it is surrounded by Afghanistan to the west and northwest, Iran to the southwest, India to the east, and China to the northeast. 

It is strategically located astride the ancient trade routes of the Khyber and Bolan passes between Asia and Europe. The history of Pakistan traces back to the beginnings of human life in South Asia. 

Pakistan is home to the Indus Valley civilization, which is amongst the oldest in the world. Prior to the 1900's the area of Pakistan was the area from which the Muslims ruled over Central and Southern Asia for over 300 years. Today Pakistan is made up of people from various races including Arabs from after the Islamic expeditions, Persians from Bukhara and Samarkand, Turks from Central Asia and the native Sindhus who were converted to Islam.

Pakistan is a federal parliamentary republic consisting of four provinces and four federal territories. With a population exceeding 170 million people, it is the sixth most populous country in the world and has the largest Muslim population after Indonesia. 

It is an ethnically and linguistically diverse country, with a similar variation in its geography and wildlife. Its semi-industrialized economy is the 27th largest in the world in terms of purchasing power. Pakistan's post-independence history has been characterized by periods of military rule, political instability and conflicts with neighbouring India. The country continues to face challenging problems, including terrorism, poverty, illiteracy and corruption.

Pakistan is such a nice place in Asia. It has plenty of tourist attractions. Its northern areas are known as the paradise. The Swat valley is called the Switzerland of Pakistan. It is very pretty and the phenomenon of the nature. It provides many breathtaking and wonderful views. I visited Pakistan last year then I was pondering for washington d.c.tours and suddenly my friends made a plan to visit this region. Well our tour proved worthwhile otherwise I was thinking what we would do in this country but my thought about this region was totally wrong. I found it very lovely and fascinating. It people were pretty good. They were very loving and kind. They welcomed us very warmly. I like their behavior, foods and other tourist destinations.
