I have been lucky to have visited Istanbul and saw Hagia Sophia and the Blue mosque. Beautiful places. Still have not seen Naran valley. Would like to go their next time I visit Pakistan.

If I would say Pakistan is Switzerland of Asia then it would also be less to describe Pakistan,s natural beauty.

Had the opportunity to make the sixteen hour journey from Islamabad to Gilgit on KKH and can still remember every second of it, did the sixteen hours in one day and it was amazing and a smashing trip, it was up, close and personal experience with nature and friendly people of the region. The world's second largest moving glacier is also in Pakistan at the foot hills of K-2, it is breathtaking to see and listen to this glacier moving, you can actually listen to the movement happening. Pakistan is beautiful, hope the government has the sense to tap the tourism potential.

I have been lucky enough to go to Hagia Sophia, however I have to say Pakistan's numbers one most beautiful and iconic building is not there. That is undoubtedly the Badhshahi Mosque.
