The city is relatively quiet and orderly with a sense of purpose about its people. It also has many of the country’s most popular sights including the Lok Virsa Museum which is a Pakistani equivalent of the British Museum. 25 galleries cover many aspects of Pakistani life from the time of the Raj way back to the civilisation of Mohenjo Daro. You need the best part of a day to get round it properly.
The Golra Pakistan Railways Museum is also a must see, combining gleaming locomotives with the history of how the railways helped expand Pakistan’s economy but also helped Britain maintain rule over the country.
Getting around the city is often a problem unless you’ve rented a car. Whilst this can be done from many outlets across the city, for reliability, low prices and ensuring there’s a car for you, pre-booking before you leave is advisable.
