A Pakistani graphic designer has created a captivating map, highlighting all the famous and major tourist attractions in the country.
Graphic designer Assam said he has created the map to assist the tourist planning to explore Pakistan; he has also marked major highways and road links leading to these tourist attractions.
Assam said the map is his bid to support tourism in Pakistan that possesses breathtaking and picturesque tourist attractions. He added that he translated his admiration for the beauty of Pakistan in his artistic work.
He shared the image of the tourist map on his Instagram account with a long caption explaining his motivation for creating a vivid map. Assam lamented that he was surprised to found that there existed no map to facilitate foreign tourists coming to Pakistan.
It took him eight consecutive days of extensive hard work to prepare a high-resolution Pakistan Tourist Attraction Map ‘which represents the overall beauty of Pakistan’.
He highlighted the efforts made by the current Pakistani government for the boost of tourism in the country including ease in the visa process for foreign tourists.
“Since last year, our visa policy has been changed and we are visa-free for many countries and for others we have on arrival visa plus e-visa service as well and tourist[s] have finally come back to our countries after many struggling years.”
He has also added helpful notes to the map in resonance with the map of other countries. “I hope this map can help many travel lovers like me,” Assam added in the conclusion.
