    • Help for planning itinerary for Pakistan trip

      Pakistan Apr 4, 2014 at 11:29 PM

      Hello,

      I need help in organizing an itinerary to visit Harappa,Taxila, Lahore, Kot Deiji, Multan, Moenjodaro, Karachi and Uch Sharif. I don't know where to start and the sequence of the routes. I'm traveling with my husband and we will be in Pakistan approximately 10 to 11 days. Due to the lack of time, I think we would have to take flights to most of the destinations. Would this be a good idea? Someone please tell me how to travel around Pakistan; I need some tips.

      Thank you so much in advance.

      I have a potential opportunity to work and live in Islamabad and wanted to get some information about furnished apt/studios (doesn't need to be in the sectors as F6 as I heard its quite expensive there).

      As a non-Pakistani female, would it be difficult to find a place to rent?

      Cost of Accomodation / utilities?
      Food cost?

      Basicaly, how much is it realistically to live i.e food, electric, gas, water, internet, telephone...

      Whats the least amount you would need as a salary?

      Any information/comments/advice would be appreciated :)

    • Anyone can give a clear picture of the safety especially for single women in islamabad...

      by karulann Online Now Nov 17, 2008 at 1:05 PM

      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
