Pakistani Cricket sensation, Shahid Afridi recently took to social media to promote tourism in Pakistan with beautiful vacation photos of himself.
In the photos he looks like he is truly enjoying each and every destination.
He mentioned in his post that he does not see why Pakistanis would choose to travel abroad for recreation when their own homeland is so wonderful.
After visiting scenic areas within KPK, Pakistan I question the need to go abroad when we have such beauty on our own doorstep. With the right investment in infrastructure & tourism these are top destination spots, both for our own citizens & tourists from abroad #ApnaPakistan🇵🇰 pic.twitter.com/JWUyKlYI13

The tourism industry of Pakistan, as per a report in 2017, generates $20 billion in revenue and supports 3.6 million jobs directly and indirectly, according to the World Travel and Tourism Council.
World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) forecasted that it would grow to over $36 billion within a decade.
It is estimated that foreign visitors generate nearly a billion US$ in exports. However, the industry still needs support from locals to flourish, and we hope Afridi’s post will help encourage more Pakistanis to explore their beautiful country and contribute to the economy.
Do you agree with Shahid Afridi? And do you plan to visit any of Pakistan’s exotic locations this summer?
