Islamabad

Islamabad is the capital city of Pakistan. It is a very beautiful city with great places to stay, a variety of shopping, and interesting things to do

Islamabad is a very modern city, and even though it is in a Muslim country, women don’t have to dress as conservatively as they would in other Muslim cities, or in the countryside.

In many hotels, you might notice a sign pointed off at an odd angle that reads “Qibla” or “Qiblah.” This sign points to Mecca to show Muslims which direction to pray.

Keep in mind that if you’re traveling to Islamabad during the month of Ramadan, most of the restaurants are closed during the day, and only open for Iftar – the meal celebration that they have after dark.

Climate

Islamabad features a very mild version of humid subtropical climate with abundant rainfall year-round. It features cool winters (mainly due to its altitude) and nighttime temperatures can drop below zero occasionally, but they usually stay between 1-3°C (33-37°F). Sparse snowfalls can occur in the surrounding hills but very rarely on the city itself. The lowest recorded temperature is -4°C (25°F). The area though does feature hot summers with the average temperature being 31.2°C (88.2°F) in June, and in the afternoon 40°C (104°F) occurrences can happen. The arrival of the monsoon does decrease temperatures a bit, but it brings intense amounts of rainfall (586mm or 22.7 inches, fall in July and August alone).
