News Desk April 02, 2019

American travel blogger Drew Binsky, who recently visited Pakistan, says the country's hospitality is the best out of all the places he has travelled to so far.

In a video posted on his Facebook page, the travel blogger shared that he did not spend money during his travels to the country "not by choice" but because "the hospitality in Pakistan is so amazing that they won't let me pay for anything".

The travel blogger said he took out Rs28,000 when he arrived in Pakistan but didn't spent any.

"Fact: I came to Pakistan and I haven't spent any money. Why? Because nobody will let me. Seriously. This is the world's best hospitality, by a long shot," he wrote.


"Anywhere I go in the world, I always insist on paying whether it be for dinners, gifts, taxi rides, experiences, you name it. But the people here in Pakistan [aggressively] won't let me pay. It's insane!!" he added.

Off-beat: Not just another YouTube tourist in Pakistan

Binsky said it was not just his friends who would not let him pay but "random street vendors and people I meet especially here in Peshawar".

In the video, Binsky can clearly be seen that vendors in Peshawar refuse to accept his money.

In a separate post on Instagram, the US traveller wrote: "Along with Iran, Pakistan is the world’s most misconceived and misunderstood country. If you’ve ever been here, then you’ll know..."
