Pakistan has the range of most striking, must-visit cultural, spiritual and historic places from Quetta to Karachi and Peshawar to Islamabad.
Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan indeed takes top honors for being the most beautiful and amazing city. What makes Islamabad stunning and unique is that the capital city is blessed with breathtaking natural wonders, spectacular views, alongside great infrastructure which is an added attraction for the foreigners and local tourists. This is what makes an incredibly attractive and exciting place to visit.
Here are some of the reasons that made me love Islamabad profoundly
1- Beautiful Islamabad's Rain
If you think Islamabad is pretty in the mist filled winters, try visiting it in the monsoons. The pouring rain over the glorious hills make the city amazingly beautiful.
2-This city is way too clean
While the rest of Pakistan have significantly improved it’s infrastructure by building modern flyovers to high rise building and local road structure, Islamabad tops on planned structure and has been divided in different zones to keep city organized and clean. City environment is enjoyable with smooth traffic flow and lots of parking spaces.
3- Social connection
The population of Islamabad is over a million, while Karachi alone inhabits as many as 14 million people. Islamabad is therefore not over crowded but socially well connected. One is always guaranteed to bump into someone they know whenever they step out of their house. It might be a teacher, a relative, a friend, or a friend of relative. In Islamabad, everybody knows everyone in one way or another.
4- Stunning view of Margalla Hills
Others may have to travel miles to be among the marvelous mountains. But the people of Islamabad have an unparalleled advantage of exploring amazing natural beauty right in their backyard. How can anyone get weary of such an amazing view?
5- Modern Architecture
The beauty and majesty of the Faisal Mosque is sure to enthrall you. The novel design of the Mosque, the expansive open spaces, symmetry and white pillars against the backdrop of Margalla is an unparallel sight. Besides this, there are also several other most viewed and beautiful places and architectural buildings in city to visit and enjoy.
