PUNJAB| Get Ready to Travel Pakistan
The most populated province “Punjab” has a long list. It also has multiple reasons to travel. Because, there are different destinations to travel. But, it is very important to know things to do in Punjab province. Also I have an over view of this season wise.
Punjab province is recording one of the hottest temperature. But it has different destinations. We also recommend travel down in winter to these tourist places. So, the places are Wagah Boarder, and Badshahi Mosque. Minar e Pakistan, Lahore Museum, Kartarpur corridor, and also other places. The seasons are also always hot. But, it is not recommended to travel down in hot weather. Because, 48 degrees recorded in summer, 39 in Autumn and 35 in Spring. So, the only season which is feasible to travel is Winter. But, there we will have 25 degree temperature.
BALOCHISTAN | PLAN TO TRAVEL PAKISTAN
The province of Balochistan has also tourist attractions. It is special to travel and also to explore many areas. Because, there are very famous tourist spots where tourist can travel. Because, I would recommend only winter season to travel to Baluchistan. But, except few places like Ziarat and Quetta. Because Quetta and Ziarat has harsh winter mostly. But, Ziarat, Kund Malir Beach, Hanna Lake, and Quetta are recommended to travel in Spring and Summer.
So, these Places are recommended to travel in winter. Because to avoid hot temperature. The tourist attractions are Hingol National Park, Gawadar, Mehr Garh, Hazarganji Chiltan National Park, and also Bolan pass etc. There are also many places to explore and discover to rest of the world.
