NY Times included Lahore in “52 places to love in 2021” list

An American publication, The New York Times recently included Lahore in its list for “52 places to love in 2021” and also shared the attractions attributing to the city’s name being included in the list.  

To highlight the motivation of publishing this type of article, the report read:

“We asked readers to tell us about the spots that have delighted, inspired, and comforted them in a dark year. Here, 52 of the more than 2,000 suggestions we received, to remind us that the world still awaits.”

Along with Lahore, among many others, the list included 51 travel destinations which include Saipan in the Northern Mariana Islands, Kaliya Dhrow in India, Siwa Oasis in Egypt.

“A must-have on everyone’s list!”

PM’s Special Assistant on Tourism Zulfi Bukhari tweeted.

The piece on Punjab’s capital city Lahore in the article was contributed by a 29-year-old freelancer Haneen Iqbal based in Toronto, Canada, who shared her compassion for the city with rich culture and lively atmosphere.

“I was 18, and I hadn’t been back to Lahore for 12 years. It was winter. At the open-air Liberty Market, my mother and I wandered the stalls as cloth vendors unfurled bright bolts of fabric, beckoning us to come to look. At dusk, with pashmina shawls wrapped around our shoulders, we devoured a bowl of spicy chicken karahi, using piping hot khamiri roti bread to wipe the bowl clean. The food practically sang as it made its way into our mouths.”

The writer said.

Pakistan has a bad reputation and is often overlooked by travelers who come to South Asia. But Lahoris are some of the kindest, most hospitable people.”

She further wrote while highlighting the very usual sight of Punjab locals feasting on terraces of restaurants overlooking the grand Badshahi Mosque.

The author explained, “They are just regular people living their regular lives, and they are so alive in the present, while always connected to their past.”

Prime Minister Imran Khan’s Special Assistant on Tourism Zulfi Bukhari retweeted the report and said: “Lahore’s rich culture, warmth, hospitality & the most amazing food in the world awaits travelers.”

“A must-have on everyone’s list!” he added.
