As for blasts and other stuff, no need to worry if you are not from Taliban or CIA.

that is true, good point. that makes the risk lower. but there is still a chance of abduction which took place in the past (for ransom or by extremists). this chance is almost zero I think. u can also being hit by a meteore if you are exactly on the wrong place on the wrong milli-second of the day. where do u live in Pakistan, Zia?

What a strange comment. Travellers and normalpakistanis not only go there but also live, work and do business there. I consider myself as normal and have gone to all these places many times.

My guess is that you are from Karachi.[/quote]

What is 'interesting' depends mainly on what you are looking for.if i haven't been to a place and don't know anything about it, how can i say that is boring?
As a courtesy to a fellow traveller, one should, at best,give honest feedback rather than sweeping statements.

That is exactly right, Selani. We want to know how we can be safe, while enjoying a particular country.

Thing is, u live in Pakistan. U look like the other people there. U understand how people behave. U speak the same language.
When we go there(or whichever other countries are not like ours), we stand out and get a lot of attention. Not all the attention is from nice people. These people sometimes want to rob us, harass us, sell us things we dont want, or other. The people who do these things, would usually know better, than to do them to u. If we dont find out as much as possible, about these things, before we get to Pakistan, we may wear the wrong things, go to dangerous parts of cities, give our money to the wrong people etc etc. A lot of this can be avoided, by having information, in advance.

1st post and that too quite discouraging.... welcome to the forum borana... :)

Agree wid Mel, and this is universally true... a traveller goes to different part of the world to experiance and savour the diversity... so he/she WILL stand out , everywhere... :) better safe than sorry...
