The Expat Life in a City of Contrasts

Islamabad is effectively twinned with the nearby city of Rawalpindi, the two cities comprising a large metropolitan area but with significant differences. While Islamabad is a purpose-built capital arranged in a grid system, Rawalpindi sprung up in the 19th century and has a more traditional, bustling feel. Both cities boast a wide variety of incredible museums, great restaurants, and spectacular nearby scenery to amaze any visitor. Most expats in Pakistan reside either here or in Karachi, as they are major financial and industrial centers, so you'll be sure to find plenty of other expatriates who share your language or culture to meet up with.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Riyadh or Singapore, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

The Network to Help Expatriates in Islamabad

Our members on InterNations come from diverse backgrounds, and all went through an approval process prior to completing the registration so you can ensure any interactions you have with the network will be relevant and courteous. As well as helping you out with any questions you might have about taking the step of living and working in Islamabad, our members also organize offline activities. So after you've joined InterNations and posted on the forum, you may wish to get involved in an InterNations Group, whether your interest is in hiking or learning Urdu, or you want to start your own group. Don't miss out on great opportunities for networking and socializing and take advantage of any opportunity!
