Sightseeing Nature Shopping
Just 15 km (9.3 mi) from the capital, Rawalpindi contrasts Islamabad's ordered, contemporary layout with its 19th-century clusters of streets and pleasantly chaotic bustle. A well-rounded Rawalpindi itinerary can include jostling through the lively bazaars, relaxing in peaceful gardens, and exploring the national park. Rawalpindi also serves as an authentically Pakistani base for trips to nearby attractions, including a 16th-century fort, a Buddhist archeological site, and peaceful hill stations dotting the surrounding mountains. In the build up to your vacation in Rawalpindi, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Pakistan vacation trip planner.

Where to stay in Rawalpindi

While you can stay in the capital and make a day trip to Rawalpindi, you'll also find plenty of accommodation options in "Pindi" itself. Hotels, bed and breakfasts, and lodges cluster in the city center and around the airport to the northeast. Guesthouses offer a more intimate atmosphere, while budget hotels and hostels cater to shoestring travelers. Southeast of the city a scattered few options put you in proximity to Jinna Park and the road to the medieval fortress.
