Designer creates tourist map to help you with travel plans

A Pakistani graphic designer and travel blogger, Assam Altaf, has created a tourist attraction map to help people who want to explore the beauty of Pakistan.

The tourist map features 72 attractions, from the mountain ranges of K2 to Karachi’s Churna Island.

The designer has also compared some of the destinations with places around the world. Lahore was compared to Italy’s Rome, Moola Chotok to Wadis in Oman and Astola Island to Greece.

Altaf is an avid traveler and pictures of his adventures can be seen on his Instagram feed.

“Whenever I visit other countries, the first thing I search for is its tourist map,” he wrote on his Instagram. “When I was looking for Pakistan’s tourist map I found nothing helpful or interesting.”

The artist said the lack of resources available for tourists motivated him to take the initiative. It took him eight days to complete the map.

Altaf wanted to show the beauty of Pakistan through his work. “From childhood I heard about the potential of Pakistan. Five kind of weathers, six kind of beaches, agricultural lands, highest mountains, roof of the world, oldest civilization, all the minerals and resources, heritage and different cultures.”

“I decided to create a picture of those voices to showcase Pakistan to the world, what we actually have and how many undiscovered areas we still have to explore.”

“In terms of nature, architecture and infrastructure, we are a truly blessed country,” he added.

The artist also said that due to the on arrival visa and e-visa policies, Pakistan has seen an influx of tourists. Altaf concluded that he hopes the map would be a guide for travel lovers.

    Lahore is not only a city, but it is also an unforgettable experience and a long-lasting feeling. To see the true and beautiful colors of Pakistan, one has to visit Lahore.
    Art, culture, desi food and lively people define Lahore. Lahore is known for its Mughal architecture, beautiful gardens, and historic buildings. The vibrant culture and warm people make Lahore worth visiting. Also, Lahore has a very old and interesting history.
