Plan Your Islamabad Holiday

There are many reasons to travel to Islamabad. The historical sites and lovely green areas combine to make a trip to Islamabad an enjoyable, informative and relaxing experience. Be sure to visit the Pakistan Monument overlooking the city. A good place to consider spending a day is the Pakistan Museum of Natural History or perhaps the National Art Gallery. The Golra Pakistan Railways Heritage Museum which houses several old locomotives, a refurbished old world train station and a small museum is a hidden gem or just simply spend a day wandering through the many parks that line the avenues of Islamabad.
