Book flights from Oslo to Islamabad with Qatar Airways
Arriving in Islamabad
Pakistan’s capital is a surprisingly green and pleasant city, with plenty of parks and wide, tree-lined boulevards giving it a spacious and open feel.
It is also the cultural, commercial and financial heart of the country, and a thriving metropolis with the emphasis very much on innovation and forward development.
Book a flight to Islamabad with Qatar Airways and you’ll also discover a city built on tradition, with a warm welcome offered to visitors from around the world.
Business travellers will find it a good place for investment, with a strong emphasis on high-tech industries, while leisure travellers with a taste for adventure will find it to be a vibrant, colourful and fascinating city full of sights that make it a destination to remember.
Pakistan’s rail infrastructure dates back to the 19th century and was a key component in the rise of the country as an internationally important trading centre.
Today, that heritage is celebrated at the Golra Pakistan Railways Heritage Museum, a real gem of an attraction that’s well worth visiting and home to beautifully restored engines and a museum.
Islamabad’s parks are beautiful and offer a tranquil respite from the noise of the city. For a great panoramic view of the metropolis head for Daman-e-Koh which offers visitors a wonderful vantage point across the valley.
There is also a collection of very good restaurants and other features here, making it an incredibly popular spot for visitors and residents alike. Another excellent open space is Fatima Jinnah Park, considered to be one of the largest parks in South East Asia.
To find out more about the culture of Pakistan take a trip to Saidpur Village in the foothills of the Margallas.
This ancient spot has been carefully restored and now offers a glimpse into the past, with exhibitions and demonstrations of traditional crafts, dancing and music, and authentic Pakistani food.
