We are 3 french students (2 men, 1 women), and we would like to visit Pakistan for around a week - 10 days.

I'm looking for a little Christmas adventure, would any people who have been through Karachi recently say that it is safe for Westerners at present? I'm a British female who would be travelling solo, however, I'm used to off the beaten track travel.

Anyone have experiences, positive or negative, to share?

My partner and I returned in August from a three week trip in Pakistan and had an amazing time. Many of the ideas for our itinerary and most useful advice came from this forum, so thought I’d share what we ended up taking, wanted to post a little information about how it all worked out.
Pakistan was an amazing experience, from the sights, sounds and smells to the warm and welcoming people, beyond the great peaks glistened with the snow and light clouds moving fast, a light breeze…
