Just came across this Forbes travel article – “This Popular Solo Female Travel Vlogger Thinks Pakistan Could Be The World’s No. 1 Tourism Destination”

What is the article about?

The article extols the merits of Pakistan as a travel destination for women traveling solo.  It features one travel vlogger who reportedly:

“She head (sic) straight into “Taliban Territory” to live with a local family. She trekked to the base camp of the world’s second tallest mountain. She traveled to the world’s highest paved international border crossing. She met with female carpenters to hear their stories. She took on Karachi alone.”

Turns out, the article was previously titled “Why Pakistan should be on every solo female travelers bucket list” according to this video:

Forbes got slammed by other sites for giving such bad advice.

We’ve already seen what happens to travelers when they run afoul of unfamiliar dangers in other countries.

What do you think about all this? Is this bad advice, or should women add Pakistan to their solo trip bucket list? Sound off in the comments.
