Travel Tips from people who've been to Islamabad
My trip to Islamabad was to meet a few people and finalize a business deal. Overall, I really liked my visit and I found some interesting places to see. Islamabad has some good places to visit such as Rawal Lake, Daman-e-koh, Shakar parian and a few others. There is a food market, few minutes down from where I stayed and they have most of the resturant branches centrally available at one place and a Menu book to choose from any dish from any resturant avaialbe at the food market. Mr. Karim Meghji (+92-300-5252232) was my host as i booked my accommodation at New Cape Grace guest house (http://www.newcapegrace.com) I wouldnt mind going to Islamabad again and explore the left over places. Also, Karim, being an active host will guide me explore the rest. Its a worth city to visit, so if you planning going to Pakistan, make sure you dont miss Islamabad.
Islamabad has a great deal of rest houses and guest houses which are reasonably equipped and economical. If one wishes to save money, they are a good option.
Don't drink tap water if you cherish your good health! You should know somebody or speak the language if you come here. Not recommended for tourists.
Islamabad is a beautiful city but is very crowded. We had a place just west of this city that was more rural and therefore more peaceful. I used my time spent here to write and become more spiritually connected with myself.
