Lahore: Dream Destination 2021
Recently, Pakistan earned another benchmark after the New York Times listed Lahore among its top pick tourist destination to visit in 2021 last week. Lahore is included in the list named ‘dream destination 2021’ among 52 cities.
The writer talks about the hospitality and warmth she received in Lahore, in the short description of the city.
“Pakistan has a bad reputation and is often overlooked by travelers who come to South Asia. But Lahoris are some of the kindest, most hospitable people. They love to take care of you and feed you. Lahore’s hot summers can feel oppressive, but in winter, in the cool dusk, lights twinkle in the fog,” wrote the author.
