Pakistan is about to become tourism’s next big thing, The Telegraph reported.

According to the newspaper, the country was once one of the highlights of the classic “hippie trail” or “overland” route from Europe to the Far East for disillusioned Western youth.

The incumbent government has taken several steps to give a boost to tourism industry in Pakistan.

Earlier, Prime Minister Imran Khan has inaugurated Pakistan’s online visa regime for foreign nationals of 190 countries along with visa-on-arrival facility for 55 states.
