Pakistanis from all over the country love to visit the northern areas due to the scenic views and sight-seeing of the mighty mountains. Having said that, Islamabad has been among one of the most prominent destinations in the last few years. However, the tradition of the city is not as wealthy as some of the older cities like Lahore, Multan and Peshawar, they city does have its own desirability with its beautiful hills and abundant greenery.
Rawalpindi is the 4th populous metropolitan region of Pakistan. The core of Rawalpindi is well-designed 14 kilometres (nine mi) from the mid of Islamabad. Due to the higher compatibility and twisted localities of the two towns, they may be entitled “twin cities.” Rawalpindi is also the military headquarters, referred to as GHQ (trendy Headquarters) of the Pakistani military.
The double decker bus service will be a huge attraction for the people and more buses will be introduced in the coming years.
