      Hi Guys,

      Can any one help me with the current Taxi fares from Islamabad Airport to Rawalpindi Daweeo Terminal? I have checked the distance on google which is approximately 26km and take around 27 mins to get to Daweeo Terminal from Islamabad Airport, however, still havent got any luck with the fare price.

      I also heard about the Taxi booths at the airport, can anyone tell me the difference between the local taxis and the cab booths?

      I will appreciate your time and effort.

      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
