Life in Lahore

Life in Lahore

Lahore never ceases to provide a multitude of interesting and memorable moments. Located in the cultural heart of the Punjab, it is a combination of the very ancient and the ultra-modern, truly a city in transition. Travelling around Lahore can be an exciting challenge and many of us use drivers when we venture to less known parts of the city. Many of our faculty members choose to hire their own personal drivers although our LAS drivers are friendly, knowledgeable and almost always available for a modest fee.

An eclectic mix of old and new, you will see modern high rise buildings and designer brand shops in some areas of Lahore while in the Old City the architecture is a testament to the famous Mogul era. The Lahore Fort is a Lahorian landmark as are a number of spectacular mosques dotted throughout the city.

Everything you need is available in Lahore including a large range of imported goods. Enjoy the local seasonal fruits and vegetables and shop in the local markets and bazaars. A highlight is the wonderful range of stunning, handmade fabrics and carpets. Tailors are inexpensive and their work is of a very high quality and almost instantaneous.

Lahore abounds in excellent restaurants and fast food outlets including the elegant Polo Lounge, the International Club, Pizza Hut and McDonalds. The city is blessed with a number of beautiful walking parks and numerous gyms and salons. Lahore. Truly a city to inspire and delight.
