Lahore

Understand

With 6.5 million people, Lahore is Pakistan's second-largest city after Karachi. It is considered to be the cultural capital of Pakistan, due to accession by Mughal rulers since the 16th century A.D.

Lahore

Talk

The official languages of Pakistan are English, due to the influence of the British Raj, and Urdu, mutually intelligble with Hindi. However, the most commonly-spoken language is Punjabi. Despite this, anglophone tourists should have little trouble when travelling, as most official information is in English, and the educated usually have some command of the language.

Lahore

By plane

Allama Iqbal International Airport is conveniently located approximately 10 minutes from the city. Buses, Taxis, and Rickshaws are all extremely cost effective ways of getting to the city. The airport is a major hub for Pakistan International Airlines with daily departures to the rest of Pakistan, Middle East, Europe, North America, and South East Asia.

Other airlines operating in and out of Lahore are Thai Airways, Emirates, Gulf Air, Qatar Airways, Kuwait Airways, Etihad Airways, Shaheen Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Air Blue, Aero Asia, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Indian Airlines, and many more. The airport architecture itself is done in Mughal style, a true representation of the city's historic past.

Drink

Even though booze is illegal in Pakistan, it can easily be found through locals. Look for any non-Muslims and they can arrange top class alcohol at relatively cheap price in no time.

  • Regale Internet Inn. It's at Regal Chowk, where Regal Cinema is. There are a few fakes, so make sure you make it to the real one, which is down an alley and upstairs. The owner Malik, is a former journalist, and a fascinating guy. He can show you some amazing off the wall stuff in the city, and it was the highlight of my trip. Highly, highly recommended.

Stay safe

In a nutshell, some things to watch out for include: Religious Extremists, Heroin Drug Users, Transsexuals (Do not under-estimate them), Fake Police, and Gangs. Other than the obvious troubles, the city centre is becoming a very modern place at a very fast pace. Every luxury is available, people are more hospitable to women and tourists than any other place in the world, and NO, there are no bombings of any sort anywhere in the city. Expect yourself to stay at luxury hotels, dine on delicious food (every kind of restaurant is available and are very high class), shop at incredibly low prices, experience a modern Muslim culture, visit historic and government monuments, enjoy water and theme parks, attend concerts, plays, sporting events, and fall in love with a mix of modern and old architecture. Almost everyone will speak English in the cities but a common knowledge of Urdu will go handy. Most people who do not understand English will be extremely helpful and find you another person who speaks English to solve or answer any problem or query you might face. Lahoris are also very proud of their culture. Despite the global brands, you can easily find stalls, handi crafts, food corners, and the millions of other things that some people in the west will never experience. Its the western world that is ignorant of the wonderful life that exists in Pakistan especially if you have $$$.
