Cheap Flights to Islamabad, Pakistan from New Zealand
Islamabad is the capital of Pakistan although it is just the tenth largest city in the country. A Gamma World City, it is among the well-planned cities in South Asia as well as the country’s cleanest and most organized city. Although the city is the sole government center, it shares a lot of activities, offices, and structures with Rawalpindi, its sister city – the two are interdependent.
As a planned city created over several existing ones, Islamabad is a delightful mixture of old and modern architecture, combining Islamic and regional flavors and tradition. Grand and beautiful structures and landmarks include the Faisal Mosque, Parliament House, Prime Minister's Secretariat, the Pakistan Monument, Rawat Fort, Lok Virsa Museum, The Saidpur Village, Islamabad Museum, Imam Barri Shrine (an Islamic religious site), and Taxila which is the world’s oldest university. Tourists may also check out Daman-e-Koh which is a beautiful lookout point in the hills, great for hiking. The Japanese Park is a popular park for families traveling with children.
The Benazir Bhutto International Airport is the third largest in Pakistan; it handles major flights to numerous international and domestic destinations. It handles flights to destinations from across the globe, including those coming from New Zealand – with connecting flights, that is. Tourists coming from Auckland, for instance, have to pass through Sydney, then Dubai, Abu Dhabi, or Kuwait to reach the city; travel time is estimated at 39 hours and 20 minutes. Those traveling from Wellington travel for 41 hours and 45 minutes while those from Christchurch can reach the city within 41 hours and 55 minutes.
