    Due to the western media, Pakistan has very few tourists visiting, and partly because of that fact, partly because of the ingrained culture of hospitality, there are very few instances of tourists being ripped off.

    Unlike in many other tourist destinations, you don't get hassled for your custom. Coming from India, it's a bit of a shock!

    No tourists so No worries

    I found Pakistan to be one of the most hassle free destinations in the world. Along with my other experiences in Iran and Georgia etc there are not a lot of tourists roaming around meaning you can bargain in the bazaars without getting ripped off too much. The bazaaris are not used to seeing travellers too much so they are more willing to bargain at reasonable rates. Pakistan is almost the complete opposite of India making this country one of the great places in the world to find a good deal.

    Unique Suggestions: If you do go to a bazaar then you can ask some of the workers at your hotel what you should pay. Walk around and make a list of items then in the evening ask them what a reasonable price should be. Chances are they will help you out making your next day of shopping more enjoyable.
