Pakistan has been named as one of the least-friendly nations for tourists, according to a World Economic Forum report.:laugh::laugh::laugh::laugh:

The Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2013 rated 140 countries according to their attractiveness and ability to develop their travel and tourism industries.

It used a combination of data from publicly available sources, international travel and tourism institutions and experts. The report found that tourists felt more welcomed in Yemen, Rwanda, the United Arab Emirates.

According to news.com.au, Bolivia was ranked the least tourist-friendly nation in the world, at 140th place after it received a score of 4.1. It was closely followed in the unfriendly stakes by Venezuela, the Russian Federation, Kuwait, Latvia and Iran, the Slovak Republic, Bulgaria, Mongolia, China, Korea and Saudi Arabia.

Australia ranked at 27th place with a rating of 6.5, a score equal to that of 15 other nations, including Sri Lanka, Hong Kong, Zambia, Oman and Lebanon. However, Yemen, Rwanda, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Malta, Singapore and Ireland all achieved higher scores than Australia.

Australia ranked 11th overall for tourism competitiveness, up two spots since the previous study in 2011. The report praised the nation's protection of its environment, 'excellent' air transport infrastructure and advanced visa process.

that's strange. whatever the infrastructure or security situation, Pakistanis are famous for mehmaanawazi. the report could be biased.

Pakistan should develop Jihad tourism. A tour of the spots where Islamists did their great deeds. Guides should be trained to say things like.....observe this spot, here 100 shias were killed by brave Taliban. Here is the building where khalifa e pakistan Osama bin laden was killed by murdering americans. Here is the spot where kafir Bhutto was hanged. :rofl:
