    Exciting things for families to do in Lahore and Islamabad plus surrounding areas

    Salams all

    Any recommendations for things to do and places to visit in the areas mentioned above.
    My brother is travelling with his family-kids aged 11-15 and would like to visit places of interest and food that will manage both western foodies with the desi person that he is!

    Ws. hope things are good with you!

    I'm not from either cities but i'm sure there must be lots. A quick lookup shows following for lahore:
    • Lahore zoo.
    • Jallo Park Lahore.
    • Safari Zoo Lahore.
    • Bagh-e-Jinnah (Lawrence Garden)
    • Mina-e-Pakistan (Greater Iqbal Park)
    • Lahore art gallery complex.
    • Jilani Park (Race Course Park)
    • Wagah Border Lahore.

    For Islo there are places like Daman-e-koh, Lake view park, Japanese children park, Pakistan monument etc.

    Natives like Sheeda Pistol Eastern Dresses can help

    Also I've found the app TripAdvisor really helpful. I'm sure it would work fine in either of the cities. Good luck!

      In ISB, every expat does the Monal thing. You travel to the top of the Margalla Hills and have over-priced food at Monal Restaurant. They views are spectacular. If you are into hiking, I'd recommend taking the trails on a Sunday morning. Besides Lake view park on the Rawal Dam, I'd also recommend Khanpur Dam where you can partake in paragliding, speedboating, and cliff diving, which is a lot more fun. There are many eateries that cater to wide range of taste buds in and around ISB. From Turkish cuisine to Syrian Shawarma in (F10 markaz) and everything in between. Mickie D's, Howdies, Hardees, yes its all there, it is called Burger Town for a reason, yanno.
