From Lahore, I took a comfortable Daewoo bus to Islamabad, the capital city of Pakistan. For me, It was love at first sight upon reaching Islamabad. Most people here are well dressed, educated & friendly. Wherever I go, the locals will invite me into their shops & treat me to a meal or simply offered me Chai (tea). Don't feel intimidated because all they wanted to do is just to know a foreign friend & to understand more about your culture & country!
Islamabad is one of the World's most beautiful city & it is clean & pollution-free as well! Without a doubt, this is the place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Lahore. The well-organised streets of Islamabad complements really well with the beauty of the Margalla Hills, a hill range part of the Himalayas range.
I visited Faisal Mosque, the national mosque of Pakistan, the Pakistan monument & the Margalla Hills National Park. I would say that Islamabad, with her cool and relaxed ambiance is definitely one of my favorite city in South Asia.
