Cheap flights to Islamabad, Pakistan

Enjoy Islamabad's large swathes of greenery with beautiful parklands and the rolling hills that tower over the city as well as its interesting cultural heritage. Even though Pakistan neighbours India, their cultures are different. Pakistan has its own deep rooted culture embedded in its colourful history stemming from its Islamic beliefs, values and social structure.

A relatively new city built around 1960, there isn’t a large amount of architectural history to be seen but the Faisal Mosque and the Presidential Palace are particularly impressive structures. We also highly recommend a walk through the Margalla Hills to the various view points and a wander through the park to the Rawal Lake where you can admire the view – fantastic at sunset sitting at the Lake Side Restaurant.
