Afghanistan is part of Asia with largest city and Capital being Kabul.  Babur Gardens which is considered ‘the loveliest spot’ in Kabul, Afghanistan is the most popular destination in Afghanistan. The garden is a site for recreation and relaxation. Tourists also troop into the National Museum of Afghanistan and the Kabul Zoo. The zoo has about 280 animals.

Even though Afghanistan has a lot to offer especially to the brave tourists, it's an extremely dangerous country to visit due to it being a war zone. Terrorism is a huge problem with the government forces fighting against Taliban insurgents.

Travel to Kabul is strongly advised against due  to it being a lethal war zone. Despite the turmoil in Afghanistan, the country manages to pull in a reasonable number of tourists annually. On average, about 20,000 tourists visit the country. 

Tourists should avoid trying to preach to or convert Muslims to other faiths, it is highly forbidden and regarded as a crime. Use and possession of narcotics, alcohol and pork products is a violation of the Afghan laws and orders. Homosexuality is also illegal in the country.
