Islamabad

Sleek, sophisticated, super-green, Pakistan’s capital city is surprisingly languid. Laid out as recently as the 1960s, Islamabad still feels shiny and new. The uber-modern Faisal Mosque and Pakistan Monument epitomises this contemporary city. Pause for thought in the wilderness of the Margalla Hills which cradle the city and form the foothill of the Himalayas.
