The Punjab Tourism Department Corporation (PTDC), with the start of the new year, has once again opened the province to local and foreign tourists.
For the promotion of tourism, the department has launched a bus service running from Lahore to Gurdwara Darbar Sahib Kartarpur, and various other places of religious and historic significance across South Punjab.
Per itinerary, this bus service will take one day to tour Kartarpur, while the remaining places will be covered in a period of three days.
According to the tourism secretary, a bus service for Pakpattan, Nankana Sahib, Hassan Abdal, and Kasur is also to be started in the second phase of the programme.
Tourists visiting the area believe that opening doors to religious tourism and increasing access to places of historical significance is a wonderful idea. “This will help project the historical and cultural heritage of Punjab to the world,” opined one tourist.
