    Hi Guys

      December will be ideal weather to visit these cities.

      Karachi:
      Any beach like Manora, hawks bay, Cape Mount etc.
      Burns Road / Port Grand Food Street / Boat Basin for Food

      Lahore:
      Lahore Fort / Badshahi Mosque / Minar-e-Pakistan
      Wagah Border
      Fort Road Food Street / Anarkali Food Street / M.M.Alam Road for food

      Islamabad:
      Daman-e-Koh / Pir Sohawa & Dinner at Monal Restaurant
      Murree / Galiyat
      Rawal Lake is disappointment so don't go there. Instead you can visit Khanpur Lake (55 km from ISB) for Paragliding and/or other water sports like Para sailing etc.
      I Love Pakistan

          Definitely check out Mohatta Palace in Karachi...one of my favorite spots in the city. When you get there, Call and see what exhibitions they have going on for Dec 2013

          I also think Itwaar/Sunday Bazaar in Defence is a must, it's such a fun way to soak up Karachi culture and cheap shopping at the same time!

          Zamzama is a must for trendy cafes and shopping and the new Dolman Mall in Clifton will have you thinking you're in Dubai or US!

              There are tons of places to visit in Islamabad!

              Definitely visit Monal and Lake View Park. F-7 markaz for shopping. Go to cafes like Chai Khaana, The Lime tree, Atrio Cafe etc.

              Also visit rawalpindi. It's really close and the bazaars are awesome!

                              I've been there but it was before 2005 earthquake. I've heard that the transportation infrastructure got pretty damaged.
