My shopping funda's at Faisalabad city.

Though Faisalabad is considered as one of the biggest cities and the industrial hub in Pakistan but what makes me wonder is that it still didn't get attention that it deserves as compared to other big cities.I often heard about Faisalabad as the "Little Manchester" because of its textile mills and rapid industrial growth but still the shopping is not very economical here. Except for Metro where the prices are very reasonable and better fit for grocery and other home decor etc.

Formerly known as Lyallpur, named after Sir Charles James Lyall but later on it changed as Faisalabad on the name of shah faisal of saudi arabia as Faisalabad. Few days back i got a chance to visit certain areas of Faisalabad including the Kohinoor shopping complex, the Metro, the old city bazar, Iqbal stadium and also the latest addition of amusement park named "Sindbad wonderland". Ghanta Ghar "The old Clock Tower" is some how a place situated in a congested city area bazar. That bazar have some traditional stuff of Panjab embroidery shawls and the footwear stuff such are Khusa's, the traditional footwear both for male and females.

what i personally observed from my trip to Faisalabad is that its basically an industrial and agricultural city, not fit for tourists and can't be a smart tourist destination yet there are certain places to visit. Difference between the North and south zones of Pakistan is that North is bestowed with abundance of natural beauty in comparison to Southern parts of Pakistan. Khyber Pukhtunkwa province, northern areas have much natural greenery and tourism opportunities but unfortunately they are lacking the industrial growth.

  5. These photographs really opened my eyes to Pakistan's cities and what one could buy there. The shoes are gorgeous and the outfits--tunics and slacks--are exactly what I'd like to wear but finding them here in the United States is difficult. You are a fine photographer. Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I so appreciate your leaving a comment. Peace.
