Posted on 29 December 2017 (0)
  1. Never underestimate

The thing with Pakistan is that you may think the country is backwards or living in huts or something and that they do not have electricity. But Pakistanis are technologically advanced and way more modern than you’d believe. They do have internet in most places and restaurants however, dhabas are exceptional you have to try out everything traditionally. And you can always use 3G or 4G on local cellular networks which is quite cheap.

  1. Avoid visiting public attractions on a Sunday

Sundays are family days. Public monuments and attractions such as the Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum are jam packed with lower-middle class Pakistani families on picnics and parties. The tickets to most of these places are really cheap, about 10 to 20 rupees for locals so you’ll never be able to enjoy completely. Weekday mornings are ideal for visits there are less visitors and less beggars (which you will find a lot around). However, foreigner tickets to the same places like the Lahore Fort or the Badshahi Mosque can reach up to 200 to 300 rupees.

  1. Don’t bloat on the first course of the meal

Pakistanis eat like there is no tomorrow and all you have is this one meal to satisfy your needs. The desi food is filled with oil, ghee or butter, extremely unhealthy for people with cholesterol but worth tasting because it’s just finger licking good. The very first meal that is served may seem fulfilling to you but don’t just fill up on just those because unless the rice or naan (bread) is served with it, that may just be the appetizer. You don’t want to miss out on any dish so wait for the second course to arrive. Sometimes even the second course isn’t all, the desserts are quite hectic too especially if you are lucky enough to taste the mouthwatering halwas prepared.

  1. Avoid travelling during the day in Ramadan

Ramadan is their holy month of fasting, and it is rude to be seen eating, drinking or smoking out in public in the day time. You will even find most of the eateries closed during the day only to be opened at sunset which the iftar or the fast breaking time. In Ramadan, Pakistanis follow a reverse timetable, the nights are animated and lively and malls filled with bustling people shopping for Eid. Though, the offices are still open in the morning you are less likely to find people on the streets. The night times are glorious in Ramadan and if you do get a chance try an iftar buffet, the locals will be more than happy to invite you to their place.

  1. Don’t forget to learn a few Urdu phrases

Although you may find many locals that speak fluent English and may even have a better grammar than you as education standards are pretty high in Pakistan. However, there are few locals and shopkeepers that either have an accent of their own mixed with words from Urdu language. You may struggle to understand, if there are other locals around they may translate for you or you can always learn a few commonly used phrases.

 

  1. Don’t dress like you do back home

Pakistanis are modern in many ways but their culture, religion and tradition do not allow them to show too much skin for women that is. In some posh and even common areas you may find women wearing crop tops and stuff. But try to blend in with other locals by wearing salwar kamiz easily available in all malls, and as I said they are traditional but quite fashionable.
