A Student’s Diary: Traveling on a budget in Pakistan

All students, whether they are in school or university, at some point, plan to travel the northern areas with their friends. I, myself have planned numerous trips throughout my educational years. But also, like most students, I am too, constrained by a budget. It would be utterly preposterous to spend around Rs. 30,000 or more on a few days’ trip with friends, keeping in mind that school and universities fees already cost so much.
One ought to think that since a group of friends are going on vacation together, the cost might be less. However, with inflation increasing ten-fold, nothing is cheap nowadays! Certainly not any sort of vacation.
During my trip to the northern areas of Gilgit, it was remotely difficult to accommodate everyone regarding the final amount of the trip. This was because most students did not find the cost feasible as it was only a short trip and the costs of hiring transportation along with the living situation exceeded the estimated cost. Most of the expenditure…

Hosting: The Essence of a Pakistani

It’s no surprise that Pakistani people are well known for their hosting mannerisms. Whenever guests come over, we take it upon ourselves to serve their each and every need, whether big or small. It can be the likes of handing them a glass of water to giving them a space to stay in for some time. We make sure that their comfort is at its peak and they do not have any sort of complaint while being under our roofs.

Pakistani peoples’ hosting abilities stem deep from within. This is because it is a society that has a strong a belief system and within that system being good hosts and catering to peoples’ needs while they are under our roofs is key to being a good Muslim as well. There are numerous examples from the past religious history and otherwise as well, which stress upon good hosting and that very well has been embedded into the minds of the Pakistanis.

For this exact reason Ghumo has launched its services, knowing very well that each and every mezban (host) will live up to expectat…

Become a part of the Ghumo.pk family

Living in Pakistan, has led many individuals to distrust new businesses, which, are joining the marketplace. Often, they tend to go along with those businesses and products that they have been using for years. Consumers are extremely brand loyal once they are satisfied with their purchase no matter what the cost. Hence, this is exactly what the accommodation market places in today’s time in Pakistan.

Hotels such as Marriot, Pearl Continental and Avari have made a name for themselves in the three major cities of Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi. Therefore, it is not surprising that whenever people from different parts of Pakistan or even holidaymakers from aboard come visit, they prefer to book rooms in these high-end hotels. Perhaps it might also be because of the lack of choices available for the vacationers.

However, recently, a new platform has emerged, following the business model of an Airbnb and essentially taking inspiration from the west on how to run the business.
Naming the bra…

The advent of vacation rentals in Pakistan

With the recent developments of vacation rentals, one has the choice to choose between hotels, hostels and rentals in Pakistan now. The decision of where to stay is imperative for travelers, whether their stay is a short one or a long one. Of course, it will vary from person to person.  Hotels offer a bunch of services to its customers at a set price, usually towards the higher end. They have a round the clock staff, working to assist you in any way possible, whether it be at 7am in the morning or at 2am at night. They are trained to manage any and all customer queries throughout their stay. Hotels also have some form of a restaurant which offer free breakfast to all the visitors, a coffee shop, or a gift store onsite. These are added amenities which are extremely beneficial for the customers but again, at higher prices. 
Vacationers who prefer a lavish stay and do not mind the expenses often opt for this mode of accommodation. However, hotels only tend to provide indoor activities whic…

Earn money from the comfort of your home in Pakistan

Who doesn’t like earning a little extra cash nowadays? With the inflation at its peak, every individual has been searching high and low to make meets end. Ghumo has provided the people of Pakistan with the perfect opportunity to invest a mere Rs. 500,000 to 1,000,000 and earn up to Rs 250,000 instantly, eventually doubling or tripling the amount in the long-run. Though, this solely depends on the mezban’s (host’s) willingness; their determination of putting in the right amount of effort will be crucial for their business.
The rental business is seen across Pakistan, from car rentals to property rentals. However, what we do not see are the vacation rentals. It is usually impossible for the travelers to find a suitable accommodation which fits their budget. Commonly, they are succumbed to the exuberant hotels with unreasonably high prices because of lack of choices available to them.

With Ghumo, the vacation rental business has come into existence where any and every one can become pa…
