Provinces of Pakistan

Last week I added a post about some of the provinces of Afghanistan. This week it is Pakistan’s turn. Each graphic below is linked to one of our previous blog posts that relates in some way to that province. Hope you enjoy exploring this beautiful country!

  1. Your maps and information is a terrific way to present these countries. I would like to do the same for Nigeria and Egypt. How is this done connecting the regions to your blog? I am particularly interested in connecting areas of Egypt and Nigeria with the traditional crafts. Can you advise how you created this format? Thank you so much for this creative approach. Lesley

    1. Sounds like a great idea! I just added these as images to a blog post and then used the hyperlink feature to link each to a blog post. I am sure there are much more sophisticated ways too 🙂

  2. An interesting graphic might be the derivation of the name Pakistan. Very few people seem to know it is an acronym. Is it the only country that has such a name? I think it is taken for granted because of the -stan at the end!

    1. Thanks for reading. To some extent they do date back, but some names such as Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (formerly the Northwest Frontier Province) and Gilgit-Baltistan (formerly the Northern Areas) are less than a decade old. Punjab province was also split, so India has its own Punjab.
