Flights to Islamabad, the best place to start a business in Pakistan.
Islamabad, designed in the 1960s, was named the top place in Pakistan to start a business by the World Bank in 2010. As the seat of government, its safety is always pointed out by observers, making it the perfect place to visit or engage in business. The Centaurus megamall with its three skyscrapers is an architectural monument as well as hotspot for shoppers visiting the city. The mall is located in the Blue Area, along Jinnah Avenue, which also houses government buildings and clusters many of the city’s other companies and businesses. To get a sense of the planned layout of the city, which Jinnah Avenue runs though, nothing like a picnic at Daman-e-Koh where you can take in the metropolis from above. You’ll quickly realize why it’s nigh on impossible to get lost in the city with its logical progression of parallel and perpendicular streets. The capital is also a great place to catch a squash tournament with any number of sports complexes available to host games. Check out the local listings! If you’re more of a mover than a watcher, Margalla Hills have marked trails where you can train for tougher challenges on their higher cousins just a few foothills away, the Himalayas.
Travel in comfort from Riyadh to Islamabad
One of Islamabad’s top attractions is its Faisal Mosque, the national mosque and largest in the country, whose architecture is inspired by a Bedouin tent. A grand total of 10,000 worshipers can be accommodated in the mosque at any given time. A quick daytrip from Islamabad is Saidpur, a renovated historic village with its mingling of time periods and grandeur restored for curious visitors. Souvenirs abound as do newly shined temples from a mixture of historic epochs. Its mountain setting is the perfect frame for its picturesque streets and buildings. At Shakarparian park, visitors will find the Pakistan Monument which symbolizes national unity through granite yet somehow flowing petals representing the country’s regions.
