CULTURAL TOURISM IN PAKISTAN - 2004

Introduction:

Tourism is often accompanied by Cultural enrichment of those who
travel as well as those at the receiving end. Main cultural factors attracting
tourists to a destination are; architecture, historical sites, archaeological
monuments, civilization, cultural heritage and social values. Pakistan is the
land of rich culture, and history and as elsewhere the rich cultural heritage of
the country exerts powerful pull on both foreign and domestic tourists. The
country is dotted with historical wonders, archaeological remains and
architectural beauties. More than half a dozen civilizations have flourished in
the areas now comprising Pakistan each leaving behind its finger prints on
the sand of time. Some of these civilizations are as ancient as those of old
Egyptian civilization with high tourist attractions.

Every year on average 2.5 million visitors, visit archaeological sites,
museums and historical places for pleasure and education. This
necessitates formulation of scientific policies and plans to improve the
facilities for visitors to these places; a job which can best be done if
adequate data on visitors flow patterns and their bio-psychic characteristics
is available. The present Report, provides information in respect of Historical
Places, Museums and Archaeological Sites where entry is through ticket.

The coverage in the Report however, is restricted to a few of the very
selected cultural items of the country not because there is any dearth of
these; in fact the whole of the country is dotted with innumerable assets of
cultural merit, but data availability arrangements are limited as a result of
which all these attractions cannot be accommodated here.

The present Report, provides information in respect of the following
main components of cultural significance:-
Historical
Places.
Museums.
Archaeological
Sites.
An overall view of visitors to these places of touristic importance
during 2004, followed by structural analysis is presented as under:-
