Continuing from Part 1, here are the remaining best things to do in Islamabad:
6. Go to Saidpur Village
Okay this tiny little village is a very interesting place. It is an actual village that they’ve integrated into the city and so it’s also very picturesque. It has a very famous restaurant; Des Pardes that you can visit with friends or family at night, the place is quite full so please do make a reservation. Also, you can explore the remains of a mandir and gurdwara that stand opposite to each other, quite interesting, I must add !
7. Visit Saeed Book Bank
So bookworms like me will understand the importance of visiting a good book store in another city, even if for just the feels ! My visit to Islamabad is incomplete without taking a stroll at Saeed Book Bank. Whether I buy more books form there or not, it is a book heaven guysss, trust me !! I once found a very cute edition of “Life of Pi” and I kid you not, it’s a must read book if you haven’t already!
8. Stroll at Jinnah Super
Agar kuch nahe karna lekin kuch karna bhe hai tu bus Jinnah super pe utarjao and take a walk around. It’s one of the happening places where you will find many shops, cafes, and restaurants. Grab a bite, do some shopping (or window shopping) and end the walk with tandoori chai at the corner.
9. Take a walk at Fatima Jinnah Park
If you like going for walks, Fatima Jinnah park is an absolute must visit. It’s one of the biggest parks in Islamabad aur wahan walk krne ka kia hi maza hai. We managed to go just once for a bit. A whole round there will take you an hour or so but taking out that time to visit it, will not go in vain. Khuli fiza will do you good, I tell you ! (wese tu poray Islamabad mein he khuli fiza hai, lulz!)
10. Pay a visit to Faisal Mosque
Known for its unique architecture, the Faisal Mosque is a must visit, when you are in Islamabad. It is one of the biggest mosques in Pakistan and was one of the biggest in the world until 1993, to be taken over by mosques in the MENA region.
So guys, this is my list of the top 10 best things to do in Islamabad that will make you leave a tiny piece of your heart in this beautiful city. I kid you not. There are many more and I would love to know if you’ve enjoyed these or any others? What’s your favorite thing about Islamabad?
I truly believe every city is beautiful with its own soul and I love soaking it up a bit in me when I visit. Happy travels!
