Pakistan is the home of hospitality and there’s no doubt about that. People from across the globe who have visited the country always leave with good remarks.
Recently, the widely recognized American travel blogger and YouTube star, famous for his expedition of traveling to all countries across the globe, became the first tourist ever to travel to Azad Kashmir Pakistan without a permit during his recent visit to Pakistan.
Documenting this experience in a video posted on his social media account Drew mentioned that he’s the first tourist in the world who has traveled to Azad Kashmir after Pakistan lifted its NOC requirement for tourists, previously required to travel to certain parts of Pakistan for outsiders.
American travel blogger Drew Binsky, who recently visited Pakistan, says the country’s hospitality is the best out of all the places he has traveled to so far.
In a video shared on his Facebook page, the travel blogger stated that he did not spend cash during his travels to the country “not by choice” but because “the hospitality in Pakistan is so amazing that they won’t let me pay for anything!”
The travel blogger said he took out Rs28,000 when he arrived in Pakistan but didn’t spend any.
“Fact: I came to Pakistan and I haven’t spent any money. Why? Because nobody will let me. Seriously. This is the world’s best hospitality, by a long shot,” he wrote.
Fact: I came to Pakistan and I haven't spent any money. Why? Because nobody will let me. Seriously. This is the world's best hospitality, by a long shot. Anywhere I go in the world, I always insist on paying — whether it be for dinners, gifts, taxi rides, experiences, you name it. But the people here in Pakistan (aggressively) won't let me pay. It's insane!!I LOVE PAKISTAN ??Follow Drew Binsky for daily travel videos. Instagram @drewbinsky

Binsky said it was not just his friends who would not let him pay but “random street vendors and people I meet especially here in Peshawar.” How cool is that?
In the video, Binsky can clearly be seen that vendors in Peshawar refuse to accept his money.
Also, on Instagram, the US traveler wrote: “Along with Iran, Pakistan is the world’s most misconceived and misunderstood country. If you’ve ever been here, then you’ll know…”
Here’s how people reacted to his compliments for Pakistan.
One user wrote how Pakistanis are very generous!
This is simply adorable! We’re appreciating every word…
It’s so good to hear such great things about Pakistan from foreigners and our hearts are just melting! We’re so glad people understand that media portrays us entirely differently and Pakistan as a nation isn’t so bad!
So, the next time any of your foreigner friends intend to take a trip to Pakistan – please tell them to be prepared for the people here to welcome them.
Let us know if there’s anything you want to add to this story! Love you all.
