In 2009, Pakistan was ranked as one of the top 25% tourist destinations for its World Heritage sites. Pakistan received more than 500,000 tourists annually. However, this number has now come down to near zero figures since 2008 due to instability in the country cuased by floods and terrorism that have caused massive destruction across the country and  declaring Pakistan as unsafe and dangerous to visit.

Pakistan is a developing country and needs Foreign Exchange for planning and developing projects. Promotion of tourism can help us greatly in this matter. Also tourism will expand the hotel industry in the country. The development of tourism will mean the development of good relations with others.

Tourism is a critical source of revenue generation and therefore a major component of economic development.

In this respect, there is a need that government should attract tourists to Pakistan by initiating the sponsorship of new businesses within the tourist market. Building and maintaining the road and air networks to meet international standards. The maturation of human and natural resources can also contribute in development of this feeble industry. Advertising campaigns need to attract tourist by developing holiday packages tailored to explore the greater regions of the country.

The truth is Pakistan could be — should be — an incredible tourist destination.
