Xiaomi Redmi Note 4X

Classy Design & Display

The design reminds you of Redmi Note 4 as it has the metallic body mixed with the 2.5D curved glass. The solid metal frame is made of anodized aluminum that makes it more attractive. The rear panel is made of fine quality plastic. The 5” full HD IPS capacitive display is simply the major attraction for the users in this low price. The Full HD 1080p resolution has 401ppi display density. It is comfortable to hold in one hand due to its chamfered edges and thin bezels. However, there is no protective layer on the display and it can get the fingerprint smudges and scratches easily. So, you need to be very careful while using the device. The weight of the device is 150g that makes it a heavier phone.

The Qualcomm MSM8940 Snapdragon 435 processor makes the multitasking easier for the users. Combined with 2 & 3GB RAM, it works finely even for the 3D games. While opening the multiple apps, there is no prominent lag. If the graphics setting is lower, you can even play various high-end games.

If the WiFi is enabled and the brightness and volume level is 50%, you can use the phone for 36 hours. The standby time for the battery is 18 days that is incredible for the users. However, the phone is fully charged within 3 hours because there is no Quick Charge 3.0 technology in it to charge it fast.

Quick Fingerprint Sensor

The fingerprint sensor is located on the back panel and works faster to unlock the phone. So, your private profile and personal content are only a touch away from you.

Projects that can change Hospitality & Tourism Industry of Pakistan

Pakistan is a country that enjoys 4 seasons, deserts, mountains (world’s 2ndlargest mountain known as K2), opportunities for ski lovers, scuba diving and many other things that are available in Pakistani premises, but our public is not aware of the existing opportunities in tourism industry. Further the infrastructure of Tourism Industry needs justification from authorities. Though TDCP (Tourism Development Corporation) is assisting Pakistani Tourism Industry, but the steps by TDCP fails to draw the attention of National and International Tourists.

Talking about Pakistani Hospitality & Tourism Industry, following upcoming projects which are either in planning or development process can change the view of Tourism Industry by facilitating Guests and Tourists with latest trends of Hospitality.

Hyatt Regency Lahore

Hyatt is a famous and globally known company that deals in Hotels, Resorts, Lodging and Leisure activities.

The passionate company now operates and runs about 500 hotels and over 90,000 rooms worldwide.

Bahria Town Rawalpindi chapter is developing the Bahria Golf City which will provide the Pakistan’s first ever Golf Resort Residential Community, while the 5 Star Sheraton Hotel will also served Guests across the world.

Naltar Valley and Ski Resort:

Naltar Valley is located about 40 KM North-West of Gilgit City. Naltar Valley is known for its magnificent mountain scenery and wildlife. Pakistan Air Force has a Ski School at Naltar Valley that teaches PAF aircrew, Defece Personals of Pak Army Civilians and Student of Ski School. The Ski Federation of Pakistan formed in December 1990 is headed by chief of Air Staff, while Vice Chief of Air Staff is President.

Pakistani government is looking forward to provide facilities at Natlar Valley, the recent development and upgrading project for Naltar will attract people towards the valley, however the sad incident of Naltar Valley has delayed the project. Authorities have setup a 180 seater Chair Lift to facilitate the Skiing Lovers aiming to provide and assist the Ski Sports in Pakistan. Indeed the Naltar Chair Lift Project will attract Ski Lovers across the Pakistan and World as well.

Naltar Ski Resorts has a slope of 600 meters, while the oldest Skiing Resort of Pakistan is located at an altitude of about 10500 feet. Pakistan Skiing Federation arranges annual Ski Festival and Programs, while students of Naltar Skiing Resorts also participate in International Skiing Sports and Festivals to represent Pakistan on International Horizon.

Lahore Canal Chair Lift:

Government of Punjab is planning to develop a 22 KM long Chairlift that will run from Thokar Niaz Baig to Jallo Mor with a cost of about 20 billion rupees. The Plan is in preliminary stage of conception, however government should look for financial resources, energy alternatives, management and safety issues, legal issues and that whether the project is sustainable in current scenario or not.

Lahore City hailed the first Chairlift project back in 2002 near Saggian Bridge. The private project was discontinued and became operational again in 2011, however no proper marketing and with no government patronage, the project failed to attract people. The upcoming Lahore Canal Chair Lift Project is likely to provide recreational and leisure facilities to Lahori People above 45 feet of Lahore Canal. Tough opposition parties are creating hurdles by marking the project as unnecessary and unaffordable in current scenario. Punjab Government is already working on Orange Line Metro Train Project after completion of Lahore Metro Bus Project.

As a tourism market and spotter, the better and advance transportation facilities in City will not only upgrade the life style of public, but also will help to boost the tourism in ancient city with rich historical background.

Conclusion:

Pakistan is blessed with numerous historical and beautiful places. Our land is home to some of the ancient societies including Mohenjo-daro (2600 BC), Taxila (Gandhara Period, known for Buddhists and Hindus Center), Harappa (represents Indus Valley Civilization), Mehar Garh (dates back to 7000 BCE to c. 2500 BCE, know is a part of Balochistan) etc. However, Pakistan lacks proper Hospitality and Tourism Infrastructure, while Pakistan also needs to improve the Law & Order situation. The current operation (Zarb-e-Azab) in Pakistan by brave Pakistani Army against Terrorists is securing the future of Pakistan and Pakistani People. Pakistan can give tough time to European and Latin American destinations by developing the sites that Allah Almighty has gifted Pakistan. Currently France is leading the Tourism Industry, while China, Turkey and Thailand are the only Countries in Asia in top 10 List.

Can’t Forget That Naran Tour Back in 2013. #Memories

After a few posts regarding travel I realized that I should write about my own personal experience. It’s my hobby to travel but I never shared my own experience about traveling before, but now I’ll write about my Naran’s tour. I was doing ACCA and my college friends planned to do a tour at Naran. You can say it paradise on Earth, people don’t come here in Pakistan otherwise they would come to know about its beauty and also innocent people of Pakistan. Without any ado let’s start my tour to naran.

All we friends planned that we’ll hire a coaster that will be our conveyance to naran. As per plan we hired a coaster that could carry 20 people and we were 25, so we managed to sit in that coaster by putting some chairs in the middle of seats. Our plan was to leave Lahore (Our City) at mid night and we were on time.

For our tour we brought some snacks and juices and for dinner we stayed for an hour on Islamabad terminal. The dinner was awesome and during the dinner we got sad news, one of our friends didn’t come for the tour and I checked that his Whatsapp status was showing that his father is in hospital. I became shocked and also my other friends also didn’t believe because his father was really nice person and we had got together at his home many times with his father. I texted him and also called him but I think he was busy and then I set my Whatsapp status as we’re sorry that we left you as we didn’t know that uncle is in hospital, we’ll come back soon to see him. This incident made our mood quiet sad but we decided to move on and will visit uncle after 2 days when we’ll be back.

After a long journey of 12 hours we reached Naran and OMG what tricky and dangerous roads were there. We prayed and thanked Allah for taking us safe in Naran. We Slept, and on the very next day we packed our bags for Lalazar, you can say it a small part of heaven. You’ll be amazed to know that native Windows XP’s wallpapers’ image was taken from this location; a beautiful place with lots of greenery, mountain and waterfalls. We took a bath in the waterfall with some other guys who were from Lahore too. Then we moved on to Lalazar’s mountains and Woah! Those were just tremendous. Because of our friend’s father health, we decided to move back to Lahore on the very next day and unfortunately, we came back. But I can’t forget those mountains with ice and greenery and also those waterfalls. Soon I’ve a plan to go with my friends again in this December. I’ll add another post here to tell you more about my next experience.
