Cultural Capital of Pakistan
You’ll be faced with a number of sites and attractions on your itinerary when you set foot in the majestic city of Lahore. Of all the city’s treasures, one can’t miss the stunning Badshahi Mosque, arguably the finest in the country and once the largest in the world. The Lahore Fort is the city’s other main party piece, a huge complex where the Mughals built their imperial quarters; today the fort is recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Once your holidays in Lahore have seen you traverse the Inner City, walk through its many gates, admire several mosques and spot the towering Minar-e-Pakistan, you can embark on some exploration to other corners of this fascinating country. Other cities, such as the capital Islamabad, and the country’s largest and most modernised city, Karachi, are both fascinating destinations in their own right.
