Pakistan’s mehmaan nawazi


Pakistan, as a society takes pride in their mehmaan nawazi skills. They are hospital people, who look forward hosting get-togethers at their homes. These events can be luncheons, dinners, hi-teas and even traditional events such as dholkis, mendhi’s and so much more. These are just a few examples of a short-time period commitment. However, when the hospitality does not stop here. It is extended when guests decide to reside in their homes temporarily as well.

And this is exactly, why Ghumo has decided to launch a platform, giving the Pakistani society the opportunity to showcase their skills and in return, earn an income.

To think that this is an extremely difficult task, one is mistaken. When having guests over, you do have to provide eatables for them, have to entertain them, keep them company throughout, yet, this is not the case when it comes to people renting out rooms or properties through Ghumo.

These renters simply need a place to stay and everything else that is provided is a facility that depends on the owner of the property. If the mezbans feel generous to an extent, they may offer some additional features such as a complimentary breakfast and other extracurricular activities like bicycling. However, the latter concept is not a display of the mezbans’ hospitability, rather it is a portrayal of the type of business they are investing in.

Furthermore, just like catering to friends and family, the mezbans of Pakistan are such that they would give it their all to ensure that hospitability from their end is at its finest. This also rules out any second thoughts by the travelers because they would know they are in safe hands.

Mehmaan nawazi is what attracts Pakistanis to visit others’ homes and leave wanting to come back again. And the mezbans’ aim somewhat similar. They want sightseers or renters to rent out their property for a certain duration while they can act as the hosts they are and eventually have their guests rave about their experience to others so that more and more people choose to live at their property.

Pakistani society is the epitome of hospitality. Try it out for yourselves now and tell us about your experience.

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…
