Overall Guide : Rawalpindi has some excellent restaurants, museums, clubs and parks as well as some beautiful hill stations such as Murree, Ayubia, Swat and Chitral, which are among the popular ones. The Pakistani Army Museum is an intriguing storehouse of information on the... more colonial army, armoury, weapons and war heroes. Historic war memorabilia is also displayed in the archive. Also, shoppers can delight in the various markets, the most famous ones being the Raja Bazaar and the Saddar Bazaar which offer various economical as well as luxury articles. The Ayub National Park is a renowned recreation centre consisting of a play area for kids, boating activities, an aquarium and an excellent restaurant with fountains and a garden. The Rohtas Fort is a brilliant example of the ancient Muslim architecture which greatly influenced European architecture. Built by Emperor Sher Shah Suri, it serves as a magnificent account of the bygone era.

Overall Guide : Very dirty sewerage system and very much traffic, no any system for clean garbage. But the food is very tasty and there are parks for entertainment but there is large amount of garbage in parks also. Water is dirty to... more drink and there is also large amount of noise pollution of rickshaws. There is another problem and that is small amount of trees to breath fresh air...

Overall Guide : Boorrrrreeeee !!! you cant move arond, no greenery, no amusement, no history, no gaming arenas, nothing at all. Islamabad is much better, peaceful and clean, better go to murree, nathia gali aur mangla, no need to spend time in pindi.... more very rough yet dry city, clever people specially the taxi drivers will rip you apart.
