ISLAMABAD: A three-member delegation of British Backpacker Society (BBS), who visited Badshahi Mosque Lahore on Friday, said it was an incredible example of Mughal architecture and undoubtedly one of the top sights in South Asia.
The delegation was also inspired by Lahori food and said each year a large number of tourists from London visit different countries and tour packages were required to be promoted as the country has a number of great places to visit.
The delegation said that Pakistan has rich cultural and heritage sites which were required to be exposed at a global level through social media to bring more and more tourists here.
“Pakistan can be made one of the largest tourists generating country of the world,” the delegation observed.
The British Backpacker Society was founded by Samuel Joynson (26), Adam Sloper (25), and Michael Worrall (25) who between them have visited over 100 countries.
Samuel said Pakistan was chosen in a top spot, because it was “home to some of the world’s friendliest and most hospitable people, and offers some of the world’s most dramatic mountain scenery.”
Adam Sloper said that the country’s Karakoram Highway was probably the most special road trip on the globe. “It links Islamabad with the ‘Mythical Hunza Valley’ through peaks, valleys and glaciers so dramatic that your camera will inevitably run out of film. If you love mountains, there is just nowhere on earth like it,” he said.
