Planning an annual trip abroad isn’t a simple decision or process by any means. It takes months of brainstorming, itinerary planning, researching, and saving up. The purse strings become a little tighter and the Pinterest boards become a bit fuller. These long awaited vacations are an excuse to quench the wanderlust within, and whether you’re a solo traveller or with family, they create memories you can’t just buy. Having said that, they cost more than they’re worth. You don’t need to trek across the ocean when you can get the same experience right at home, for a quarter of the price. Treat yourself and your bank account right by planning your next weekend vacation in Pakistan. Happy travelling!
