However, Alex and Sebastian loved Lahore-The city of gardens. They found people to be extremely friendly and hospitable. Here is what they have to say about Lahore:

“It’s a big city, but the people are super friendly… and perhaps dangerously hospitable. Despite it being Ramadan, people showed us around every day, and stuffed us with more food than we’ve eaten in our entire lives. We made some great friends in the process, and really hope to head to Lahore again soon.”
