Overall Guide : Very cultural, historical city, great to visit the old city and get lost in the twisting alleyways!!!, lots of cheap eating places around, great shopping in Anarkali, Ichra , Liberty, Fortress stadium bring an empty suitcase!or end up paying excess... more baggage charges! you need it to load up with your shopping/souvenirs. Good parks around - Race course park, Lawrence gardens, zoo is a good place to visit. Lots of rickshaws around bargain hard!not so comfortable on the back if lots of pot holes in the road! traffic is chaos! if your driving a car then look out for road users driving without lights at night that applies to cars, motorbikes, rickshaws, and pedal cycles don't even have lights!! in fact if your from abroad and on holiday don't even try driving in Lahore - you will need some serious stress therapy! every were you will hear people honking you! no patience!! Talking of stress therapy cheap beauty salons around in Lahore - to enjoy a facial/mani/pedi- treat yourself if you are on holiday, we found a great spa called SAMS in Gulberg and DHA for affordable luxury spa treatments- great relaxation pool/jacuzzi in natural surroundings, enjoy a body massage, spa facial, great juice bar they have a medical spa - with anti-ageing treatments, hair loss treatments and a dental spa with economical prices check out their website www.sams.pk By the way best time to go to Lahore is March/April as after that too hot and humid and if your used to no problems with electricity back at home then be prepared for a load of load shedding - unless your staying in a place with a generator then that's not such an issue, if not then don't get to absorbed in watching TV as you will find that watching your favourite film/drama the light will go , and no TV! untill 1 hr later if you are lucky unless load shedding is for many hrs!Whilst in Lahore go and see the closing of the border ceremony at Wagah see the soldiers from both side out salute/out-shout each other! Have a great trip.

Overall Guide : Lahore is a beautiful city. It is the capital of Punjab, called main cultural center of Punjab. One of the most densely populated cities in the world, Lahore remains an economic, political, transportation, entertainment, and educational hub. It is referred... more to as the "Mughal City of Gardens" due to the historic presence of gardens in and around the city dating back to the Mughal period. Lahore's population was 6,310,000.[9] A 2010 government estimate now puts the population at 10,000,000. The Lahore Expo Centre is one of the biggest projects in the history of the city and was inaugurated on 22 May 2010.[65] Lake City is a resort and residential development planned on the outskirts of Lahore.Lahore's economic strength relies on the fact that it is the biggest city of Pakistan's most populous province.The economy is also enhanced by Lahore's historic and cultural importance. Being the capital of the largest province in Pakistan brings the city one of the largest development budgets in the country.

Overall Guide : Born at Lahore years ago, i feel much pride of being Lahori,as my forefathers had been living here for centuries. Lahore is my love and i can not be far from Lahore.Rich in culture,history especially Mughals and earlier Muslim Emperors... more like Aibak,it is full of joy for visitors.Food is very tastious even the best in world.The we lahorites are very open minded and this open mindedness has converted it to a metropolitan of over 15 millions.The most popular mark of Lahore is mazar of Sufi Ali Hajveri for which it is called "data di Nagri" because of his noble and untirdy services for Islam for decades . Who does not want to come and see Lahore. Only one who does not want to be born.
