Hello, I have the opportunity to go to Islamabad with my husband and my 6 month baby .. but I am hesitating due to the security context. I wonder if I can walk in parks with my child, go to the restaurant, have a "normal" life there. Do you know if a lot of expatriates are living there with their family ? Is it easy to find nannies ? Thank you

Pakistan Zintabad! Hello everybody, I have a question about necessary connection times at the Islamabad Airport from an incoming intl. flight to a domestic/national flight within Pakistan. Are 2 hours enough to disembark, passportcontrol, receiving luggage and getting an ongoing flight within Pakistan? Thanks a lot, Chris
Hi All, I will be going to Islamabad for half a year for work related trip. The accommodation and transportation has already been arrange. I'm a fairly independent person, so going out alone should be ok for me. I prefer not to make judgment of a place unless I have gone there and see it with my own eyes, but my colleague has been to Karachi has advised me to not go out alone. And that I must have someone to accompany me and that it is better for me to stay in rather than go out as it is not that safe. So for all of you guys, who is living or gone to Islamabad give a clear picture of the safety especially to a single women. Is it fairly safe just like in any city in the world for me to out alone to shop, visit museum, go for a hike and etc's. As it would be a waste for me to go to Pakistan but do not enjoy/experience/see the real deal. Btw, aside from that. As I'm from a no-winter season country. Is it very cold during the November to January? And also what is the recommended appropriate attire/cloth to wear in Islamabad. Thanks in advance

Hello every one ! I ve a very naughty chick in islamabad living in a hostel. Sometime she doesnt like to eat at hostel's mess so she has to fast. (I mean cosmetic fasting LoL...!) Can someone please tell me about resturants and hotels in Islamabad where I can pay for her in advance so that whenever she doesnt want to eat at mess she can call them for a delivery. Here in uk we have this system. Actually we purchase vouchers by paying in advance and whenever we want we use them. I ll highly be grateful to the friend who ll help me.
So I have heared that there will be openning soon a new restaurant in Jinnah, called Drumstick! Is it true?! If so, cant wait to go!

Who has a dentist they recommend here? Doesn't need to have a fancy office or equipment just needs to be skillful and caring. Thanks so much! Here is a joke for you. My office has enrolled us in a new dental plan, it's called "chew on the other side" :D
Hi We are British ex-pats who are thinking of returning to live in Pakistan in the near future. we have two young children and I am worried about the issues of kidnap and ransom in Pakistan as I have heard a lot of this happens,also whether we will be able to fit in. Can anyone tell me what it is like living in Islamabad and how good the amenities and services are. Generally in the UK we are seeing negative issues coming out of Pakistan however I am trying to be open minded and positive in the light of the problems facing Pakistan in general. Any advice is appreciated. Thankyou
I need to seek advice and comments from those of you who have been to Hunza by road. I am planning to go to Hunza with my family by car on Karakoram Highway on 2nd june inshallah.Since no night time driving is in our plan, our first night stop shall be at Besham where we expect to reach in 10 hours...leaving Lahore by 7 am and travelling on M2, reaching Islamabad interchange within four hours, Abottabad in another three hours and then Besham (three hours more) before sunset inshallah. My original plan was to spend the second night at Chilas but I have learned that Chilas is 5 hours from Besham and Gilgit is another three hours from Chilas.So now I assume we can reach Gilgit from Besham before sunset even if we don't stop at Chilas and after spending the second night at Gilgit, we can drive to Karimabad the next day inshalah.Does it sound workable? How is KKH in the month of June...landslides? I have learned there are bandits robbing cars and other private vehices in Kohistan region...any idea of current state of affairs regarding that? It is not possible to drive our cars in to China but can we drive past Sost and upto Khunjerab Pass? Or we cannot drive beyond the customs check post at Sost? Any hotel recommendations in Karimabad?---neither the budget class nor a five star...just a good, moderate one. We plan to leave our car at some place in Gilgit and fly to Skardu and back.Any comments? Flying to Gilgit from Islamabad and back could be less time consuming but that way we won't be able to experience KKH. I will be grateful for any guidance that anyone can provide from their first hand experience.
