If you happen to be from Pakistan, this piece of news will definitely put a smile on your face. However, if you lie across the border in India, come, join me in saying ‘shit yaar’.
And that is because according to the Forbes list of ’10 Coolest Places to Go in 2019′, Pakistan is one of the places that should make your travel check-list, while India failed to make the cut.
Much to the joy of all the Pakistanis, the country has earned itself a spot alongside the likes of Azores (Portugal), Eastern Bhutan, Cabo (Mexico), Colombia, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Mongolia, Rwanda, and Turkish Riviera.
Ten 'coolest places to go', 2019.
1. Azores, Portugal
2. Eastern Bhutan
3. Cabo, Mexico
10. Turkish Riviera

The research was carried by travel blogger Ann Abel, who spoke to experts at high-end travel companies around the world and came to a conclusion.
Needless to say, the list sparked an epic banter between the Indians and the Pakistanis on Twitter and the comments were hilarious!

Check other stats like top ten places to invest, top growing countries etc. This is not the only stat. Despite of this, tourism in India is much bigger than Pakistan
