Accommodation In Pakistan
Trekking through Islamabad and the mountainous north
Adventurous types will hit their stride in Pakistan, as the country offers a treasure trove of thrill-seeking activities. From white-water rafting to hiking some of the world's tallest mountains, it's all bundled together though the northern regions. The capital city of Islamabad is somewhat of a gateway to discovering the north, but also presents the opportunity to delve into the culture of Pakistan.
Within the capital, there are a number of hotels providing a comfortable night's stay in such international chains as the Marriott and Best Western. There is also a range of boutiques and guest houses to choose from.
Discover art and culture in Lahore
The Punjab region of Pakistan is the most heavily populated in the country, and, as such, offers an exciting mixture of activities. Lahore is the provincial capital and a focal point for art and culture. The old city provides an interesting trip back in time as you discover traditional architecture and history, or venture beyond the city to take in such amazing experiences as the closing of the border at Wagah.
You'll find comfort and quality accommodation options throughout the larger cities of Punjab with Lahore offering a great selection to suit all budget sizes. The Avari Hotel Lahore is ideally located and offers beautiful surrounding gardens. Or, you may want to try the Heritage Luxury Suites, which provides easy access to local markets.
The intrigue of the Sindh region
The cities of the Sindh region are buzzing with activity. With so many to choose from, it will be a challenge to narrow it down to just a few highlights. The city of Sukkur is definitely worth checking out as it is a vibrant agriculture centre with numerous historic tourism sites. The area also boasts such ancient cities as Moenjodaro, which is World Heritage-listed and features 250 hectares of ancient ruins.
You can find a good selection of hotels in the larger cities. This is especially true of Karachi, which features such chains as the Marriott and Ramada. Smaller destinations such as Sukkur may be more remote, but you'll still find a smattering of local hotels to choose from.
