Posted on February 07, 2023 by Jonh Robinson

In Pakistan, you can find the most charming destinations in South Asia, especially for travelers coming from Korea. It is said that this country is among the most popular destinations for many of the famous K-pop bands, and this has made their fans want to visit it as well.

Pakistan has history, culture, and architecture like no other place. It is where the oldest Harappa kingdom was located, which existed in the 23rd-17th centuries BC. The early Gandhara Buddhists, the heirs of Alexander the Great, the Seleucids, and the great Mughals left their mark on this country. You will also find the foothills of the Himalayas, the remains of Buddhist monasteries, medieval Muslim mystics, and the magnificent temples of Lahore.

These are some of the most visited destinations:

1. Lahore Fortress

This 12th-century building served as the residence of Muhammad Guri. It is located between Tibet, India, and Persia. Although this place was repeatedly conquered, destroyed, and rebuilt, today, it is a great tourist destination.
