    Visiting Islamabad and Lahore

    by imranthetrekker Written Dec 21, 2011

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Bonjour from Peshawar,

    Islamabad the capital of Pakistan, well planned and pretty safe, foreign ex-pats, diplomats and journalists also live here.

    I don't see any troubles while visiting the city, it's a lush green area with a very healthy environment.

    You shouldn't miss
    Lok Virsa (the culture museum)
    Daman-e-Koh (Park) a very beautiful view of Islamabad city
    Lake view park

    Mr. Book (Book Store) Super market
    Saeed Book Bank , Jinnah Super market

    Islamabad is my 2nd home after Peshawar..

    Lahore, the culture capital of Pakistan, the city of architecture and Pakistani cuisine.

    Food Street, Gawal Mandi
    Lahore Fort, Badshahi Mosque, Shalimar garden are worth-visiting ..

    Bon voyage mon ami..

    Dress code for female travelers and Quetta trip

    by imranthetrekker Written Aug 29, 2011

    Favorite thing: Bonjour mon ami,

    Cross into Taftan from Mirjaveh, take a bus to Quetta, 630 Km, 15 hrs, stay at
    Hotel Al-Naeem

    Take a train from Quetta to Lahore, for train schedules please check with their site
    www.pakrail.com

    In Lahore stay with Malik at
    Regale Internet Inn

    While traveling in Pakistan, dress locally or modestly, Shalwar, Kamees and shawl or a long sleeves shirt with a pair of jeans are fine.

    You should visit Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan, the mountainous regions of Pakistan, the very soft corner of the country if you're not on a very tight itinerary.

    Your queries are welcomed..

    A Briton in Karachi

    by Aghani Written Aug 6, 2008

    Favorite thing: Welcome Mark. You seem to be a jolly fellow, the kind we love. The open minded, eager to befriend. You might not know but we have at least one of your compatriot (UK citizen)in Karachi. He is a celebrity here. Name George Fulton. I can narrate a lot but want to keep it a surprise. You can contact him at kag@aaj.tv
    or watch him daily Mon-Friday on Aaj TV or www.aaj.tv at 04.00 to 06.00 GMT.
    He is a popular person. Speaks probably as much Urdu as you.

    Favorite thing:

    Find it by yourself, the riotous mix of the old and mordern Pakistan. Where crude camel and donkey carts
    move a long with shiny saloon car. Inherited ancient hand crafted synchronize with Heavy Mechanical Complex.
    The handicrafts produced in the regions have a distinct local character. Their expert craftsmen infuse the MAGIC of traditions in exquisite creations of clay, pottery, carved furniture and traditional embroidery work.

    Favorite thing: I am sure Pakistani friends will like to see those stamps about Turkey and Ataturk. I think they love Ataturk like us. He is a leader for them too.
