Any other things to keep in mind when visiting Pakistan?
Natural disasters – Pakistan is in an earthquake zone and is occasionally prone to landslides and flooding. Check your policy’s wording to see if your insurance covers you for extreme events.
Climate – The country’s winter runs from around November to March, when conditions are typically warm with cool breezes in coastal areas. Pakistan’s summer, from April to July, can be extremely hot, while monsoon season runs from July to September.
Tipping – High-end hotels and restaurants may add a 10% service charge to your service bills. Tipping elsewhere is discretionary, but giving about 30-50 rupees at local restaurants is likely to be welcomed.
Time difference – Pakistan is four hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
