Islamabad is the model of what a modern Pakistani city should look like. Clusters of buildings are divided into zones, laid out as a grid with a vast network of roads connecting them all together like a spider web. In between the buildings, green vegetations are sprinkled all over the city, making it the greenest city in the country. Rickshaws are banned due to loud noises and the streets are as clean as day. It is what the government envisioned a capital city should be and they went all in with it.
And they sure did a great job with it. Islamabad was the last real big city before we head into the mountains of Gilgit Baltistan and it has proven to be a great city to relax in and prepare for the trip. There are also several nice modern architectures, contrary to colonial architecture in Lahore, and viewpoints to explore. Be sure to go up one of the mountains behind the city to see how green Islamabad is!
