"when in rome....." Pakistan Local Custom Tip by TONY786

Pakistan Local Customs: 38 reviews and 27 photos

always remember you are in a islamic country respect this and you will get respect back always wear clothes covering your arms and legs especially women dress like the locals to save stares and comments.
the locals have no concept of joining a queue in a shop they walk to the front and demand to be served they are from a different culture and dont know this concept so stay cool, i was once in a queue in a petrol station when a chap rode in front on a motorbike i gave him a mouthful and he pulled a revolver so be careful you are not in the trafford centre in manchester and your western values do not apply here they have there own and dont worry they will let you know when you break them.
