    Is there a high risk area of travel to Pakistan because of terrorism, especially for western visitors? Some government websites site it as a risk for attacks, although more so for government security and military but there also seems to be a caution and risk of kidnapping for western visitors. I'm a little worried about this because a friend from Pakistan urged me to visit his birth place.

    I would avoid going to Pakistan if I were you. There is a lot happening there as per the news and it would not be safe to that area at all. Travel only if you must and there is no alternative.

    On the major travel website, there are beautiful photographs of hotel accommodations and fine dining for Islamabad, Pakistan. The Serai looks amazing. I wish there was a way for a westerner to travel with absolute confidence, I would love to go.

    Pakistan has made an effort to fight terrorism but there still are numerous terrorist cells in the country. Though there's no country in the world which is 100% safe, there's no need to take unnecessary risks so it would be best to stay away from Pakistan for now until it's safer to visit. That might take a really long time I'm sure.

    I'm not extremely familiar with Pakistan and its current state, but isn't just a part of the country under attack? I've seen numerous photos and videos online of Pakistan's resorts and that led me to think not the whole country is affected by war. There are still a lot of alternatives if you're on the fence of going to Pakistan, after all it's not easy to get there so you have to plan cautiously. It's a really pretty country, I must say.
