    Well, it is not a very big mall as we, overseas Pakistanis, are used to; but a place with reasonable variations available. It has a hyper market, kids play area, food court, and multiple brands for shopping. Comparatively crowd is less than other places.

    PNAC is he hub of art activities in Islamabad. There are many cultural shows and art performances in the auditoriam of PNAC that are held from time to time. However, the highlight of the place is the art gallery that contains so many original paintings of famous Pakistani artists. Though there are so many paintings but the best is the collection of Sadiqain and Ustad Allah Baksh, the two legendary artists of Pakistan.
    Though the collections contained in the gallery are priceless, however, they have not been stored, preserved and displayed in a manner that is aesthetically appealing and scientifically correct. The gallery itself is quite spacious but the display is quite poor, reflecting poorly on the management and staff. These paintings are a national asset and definitely derserve to better attention.

    one of the oldest and most comprehensive markets in Islamabad. It hosts a great variety of shops selling dry fruit, toys, consumer goods, kitchen utensils, sports and leather goods, school uniforms and everything that is needed to keep a household running smoothly. Located close to the centre of the city, Aabpara market is the place where everything is available for all and sundry at a very reasonable and affordable price.

    This is the second worst hotel I have ever stayed at in Islamabad (the first was several years ago a much cheaper guest house with cockroches actively competing for space when I entered the room). It is mind-boggling. I have been trying to call reception since I arrived because the wifi password didn't work, and then later this evening to ask for an iron. They simply do not answer the phone at reception. This place smells awful, but different awful chemical smells in the hallway, the room and the bathroom. It is priced like a mid-range hotel so this is way too expensive for what you get. The TV doesnt turn on who knows if it is a remote control battery issue or the tv itself but I shouldn't have to spend more than a few mintues wondering. Then, the pool that was one of the two primary reasons for staying here, aside from the gym, has women's hour from 1 to 5 pm, with the men's hours the rest of the time from 6 AM to 10 PM. This is not a feminist place. The chain lock on the door of the room has had the chain removed. Hello???? Who does that?

    I regret deeply pre-paying 2 nights for this place. I will not repeat this mistake.

    Arts and crafts village is generally unknown to tourists n city people because they confuse it with Lok Virsa, Shakarparian which is more organized n public place with permanent setup. Arts n crafts village is small in comparison wrt exibit and range of products, you find cultural sovenirs here plus on weekends exibition too many times, quality is not very competitive but it's cheaper too compared to Lok virsa, you find clothes, potraits,shoes,wooden products as well as decoration items here.

    Located in the heart of the capital, Tanzara Art Gallery offers art lovers a splendid collection of art work by pakistani artists both emerging and established. The gallery owner and curator, Noshi Qadir, believes firmly in displaying high quality art and maintains the high quality standard of artwork that the gallery has set for itself, which is reflected in her curated exhibitions.
    It is a must visit for all those who are looking to acquire high quality art or just get to know fine artists of pakistan.

    Organic farm market with local organic farmers. Lots of beauty care products, vegetables and season fruits. There were two food stalls, one with Filipino specialties.
