9 Pakistani Villages That Set an Example For The Whole Country

Village is a luxury that more than half of Pakistanis enjoy as about 65% of country's population lives in rural areas. Pakistan is basically an agriculture-based economy and largely depends on its villages for growth. Clean air, lush green views, pure milk, finest quality of dairy products and simple people are some of the happy things about life in a village.

But unfortunately, a couple of other factors are diminishing the true and happy spirit of villages. Lack of education, poor sanitation, poverty are the things that are generally associated with villages today. But in reality, villages are not that bad to live.
