Top 10 Best Cities in Pakistan

The Top Ten
1 Lahore

Lahore is not only a city to live in, but also a city to grow in. There is a certain magic in the air that enthralls visitors so much that their temporary stay makes them permanent residents. Lahore is loved not only by its residents and other countrymen, but also by neighbors across the border. Elders from neighboring countries often share stories of their mischievous childhoods and youthful days spent in the streets of Lahore.

One simple demonstration of the peace-loving people of Lahore can be seen in how Muslims and Sikhs are engaged in religious activities. They interact across doors from the biggest mosque in the world to the gurudwara of historical importance.

2 Karachi

This city should have been number one. The educational hub of South Asia as well as the port city of Pakistan, our country is incomplete without Karachi. Karachi has everything which Lahore has, like culture, elite lifestyle, high-rise buildings, but Lahore is deprived of some things which Karachi possesses. Examples are beaches, port, and the bearable climate itself. I agree that 'Lahore Lahore Hai,' but a person who hasn't seen Karachi hasn't seen Pakistan.

I recently visited Pakistan and its major cities from England. I found Karachi truly full of life, maybe one of the most lively cities I have ever seen in the world. The security situation is so good now that if you have not seen Karachi, you have not seen Pakistan. Karachi is truly the heart of Pakistan, full of all cultures from Pakistan living in one city. There is no Pakistan without Karachi.

3 Faisalabad

I am a Lahori, which makes me a resident of a city that has everything. But once you visit Faisalabad, you feel something that you've never felt before. Faisalabad has something which no other city has. That is its unique culture.

The people of Lahore and Karachi have forgotten their true cultural identity, but Faisalabad strongly retains it today. The people are very hospitable, and the city itself very charming. Ghanta Ghar and the eight bazaars are worth visiting. Faisalabad might not be of the same standard as Karachi or Lahore, but it is a place that's worth visiting.

4 Multan

Multan has many popular historical locations. Attractions such as the Multan Clock Tower, Multan Fort, and Delhi Gate draw both locals and tourists alike. The architecture of these famous landmarks is compelling enough to make visitors consider becoming permanent residents.

Multan was the city where my college used to be, and I loved Multan. It was so beautiful and the safest city. I have fond memories there, but sadly I left. I will never forget the good times that I spent there.

5 Islamabad

It is a pity seeing my Isloo on number five! It should be NUMBER ONE! It is the second best capital in the world. Islamabad offers everything. It has five-star hotels, high-rising buildings, broad avenues, and unique architecture.

On the other hand, Islamabad is locked in the natural beauty of the Margallahs. Islamabad is truly a glimpse of heaven. No matter if Islamabad is a boring nine-to-five city, the nightlife can be enjoyed in the neighboring city of Rawalpindi. Above all, it is our National Capital.

Islamabad is the most beautiful city among all green places I have ever seen in my life. It's the capital of Pakistan. They could enhance its beauty by constructing towers, skyscrapers, and good roads like those in Dubai.

6 Peshawar

I have lived in Peshawar for three years. Initially, when I heard about our transfer to Peshawar, I was shocked and very upset. I would have preferred living in the wild to moving to Peshawar. My reluctance was due to the terrorist incidents and the city's conservative nature.

However, my opinions changed once we settled in. The people were extremely hospitable, the city offered everything you needed, and Peshawar itself felt very protective. Despite many bomb blasts, when it was time to leave, I literally cried and didn't want to say goodbye.

I always have the desire to visit Peshawar again and wish all the best for its people, whom I witnessed sacrificing their lives for our country. Such a sense of patriotism is deficient in any other place in the country. Love you, Peshawar!

7 Hyderabad

A calm and cool city, but it offers everything the residents require.

It's a beautiful country because I am a Pakistani, and it is better than America.

8 Rawalpindi

This should be on number one. Rawalpindi can offer anything. It has large shopping malls (e.g., the ones in Sadar), large hotels (PC, Flashman, Shalimar), and parks (Jinnah park) and everything that a modern city requires.

For a traditional touch, you can go to Murree Road Commercial Market or Raja Bazaar. On the other hand, the city is very near to Islamabad. Pindi has a marvelous nightlife but at the same time is very peaceful. In addition, Pindi is a very secure city (although crime activities are not rare, the city is free of terrorism) because there are three important military setups here.

9 Sialkot

Why is Sialkot the most peaceful city? Because it is not on GT Road, and most of its citizens are natives, with very few outsiders. But that doesn't mean we are not welcoming.

There is a lot to explore, like Iqbal House, the peaceful Chenab River at the feet of the Himalayan range. Moreover, the sports, surgical, and leather industries are at their peak, and most people here are very hardworking and talented.

The famous sites of Sialkot city include the historical Qilla, Gao Shala Temple, Sialkot International Private Airport, Imam Sahib Tomb, and Sialkot Cantonment.

There is also much more to explore. I would be a proud tour guide if any of the readers visit my town.

10 Gujranwala

Gujranwala is now Pakistan's third-largest industrial city after Karachi and Faisalabad. Gujranwala contributes 5% to GDP. Sialkot, Gujrat, and Gujranwala form the golden triangle of industry. Founded in the 18th century, it was a state of Maharajah Ranjeet Singh. Gujranwala is the fifth most populous city proper.

I'm also from Gujranwala, Pakistan. I love my city. It's very beautiful, clean, and nice. Every Pakistani wants to visit this city because of its popular wrestlers.

Gujranwala is known for its brave and friendly people, foody culture, and food shops that are open all night with full booking. The residents are open-hearted and kind-hearted. The taste of food here is better than in any other city of Pakistan and is also cheap.

The Contenders
11 Bahawalpur

If you want peace with all facilities nearest to your doorstep, then Bahawalpur is the only city in Pakistan where you can find all that. The city is beautiful and the people are very humble.

Bahawalpur is the best in Pakistan. It is not only Punjab's largest by area but also beautiful. It has many palaces, tombs, and heritage sites. It has great architecture. Beautiful parks, peaceful and loving people, the best educational departments, and many other facilities make it the best place to live in Pakistan.

This is a peaceful, neat, and clean city with good municipality and administration. Additionally, it is a division that remained a unit in the past. Everything is available here. More than four universities, including QMC and UCET of IUB, are spreading knowledge by making doctors and engineers.

12 Quetta

Quetta is the best city because the weather is awesome, and the people are really hardworking. It has natural beauty with many mountains which you feel like wow! There are many resources like gas, electricity, and water etc. I think Quetta is the best city to live in.

It's a very historic city. They should improve this city. It's a proper valley surrounded by mountains.

13 Sargodha

Sargodha is a very beautiful city. It mainly comprises flat, fertile plains, though there are a few small hills. The city boasts educational institutes, playlands, and shopping centers. I love my city very much.

Sargodha is an ideal place to live because of its suitable location, which is facilitated with hospitals, educational institutions, and agricultural lands.

I live in Sargodha. It is also a center of the Pakistan Air Force. I love PAF too.

14 Abbottabad

I was born here, and if you want to live in Pakistan, it's the best choice because of the beautiful nature. It's not a big city, so it is quiet and peaceful.

A city known for its top educational institutes, scenic views, weather, Pakistan Military Academy, and tourist destinations!

I lived there for nine months. It's the best place ever. Clean, peaceful, and beautiful scenery. The people are well-mannered too.

15 Bhera

A great historical city on the bank of river Jehlum. Famous for Mehndi (Hina) production. Land of Saints and Scholars. It is being funded by the Pakistan government to protect its history and heritage. I have visited it a few times when I visit Pakistan (from the USA), as it is the city of my ancestors - as such it has a special place in my heart.

It's the best city to live in, having advanced educational and health services.

16 Gujrat

The air is very clean and the scenery is tremendous. The agricultural developments are ever expanding and have the potential to add immense value to this great country of Pakistan.

A beautiful city with helpful people.

A powerful city with helpful people.

17 Jhelum

In my opinion, Jhelum is the best city in Pakistan, and not just because it's my hometown. It has almost everything which makes a city perfect, like mountains, greenery, hospitality, safety, conservative people, liberal people, literacy rate, GDP per capita, river, history, etc. On top of that, the living standard is much better. And yes, of course, I love my beautiful hometown Jhelum. Love from Dubai.

Jhelum is beautiful and very hospitable. It has everything you need, with a very kind community.

Jhelum is more educated and wealthier. It's a good city in Pakistan after Islamabad.

18 Mirpur

I love my beautiful city of Mirpur and its noble inhabitants. Situated at the foothills of the Himalayas at a historic invasion route into Kashmir, the city has seen many hardships, including bloodshed, invasions, occupations, resistance, and freedom. The inhabitants of the city are known for their simplicity, hard work, resistance, resilience, bravery, biraderi (patriarchal clan system), and the large expat Mirpuri community in the UK who have very strong links to their homeland.

Mirpur is an awesome place to live and visit. The scenery in Kashmir is breathtaking, and the food is delicious.

19 Sahiwal
20 Rahim Yar Khan

It is one of the safest and most secure cities in Pakistan.

One of the beautiful cities in Pakistan.

Rahim Yar Khan is the most developing city, boasting historical places, many colleges, schools, and brands. The need for higher education among citizens has been met by the Punjab Government with the opening of Mini UET (KFUEIT).

21 Sheikhupura

It's the city among all, because my girl lives there.

22 Swat

Swat is one of the many beautiful places in Pakistan and is considered the Switzerland of our beloved country. I love my forefathers' native place.

23 Gilgit-Baltistan

What a beautiful and stunning scenic place to truly live your life. I dream of living in this paradise on earth. I have visited it numerous times and am sure, by the grace of Almighty, I will live there.

24 Murree
25 Okara

Okara! Okara! The best and most beautiful cantonment, but the weather is so hot in Okara.
