What is it like to live in Lahore? Would you recommend it? What is the city like?

Living in Lahore is like living in a crowd. Its like a Hustle and bustle everywhere. I would really recommend it to people who love to shop at midnights or wants to have great food for midnight cravings. The city is beautiful and people living there are more beautiful.

What is the student lifestyle like in Lahore?

Student lifestyle in Lahore is very busy and tough but very little fun. As studies in Lahore are kind of a stress for every student. Therefore, students in Lahore are quite into books rather than into fun.

How much does it cost to live in Lahore?

It does not cost much to live in Lahore. Because there people live together with families. Therefore, the cost of living is kind of divided into everyone and it makes it easier for everyone to pay for their living. The average cost of living for a person in single room apartment is about 3000 pkr.

Is it difficult to find accommodation in Lahore? Is there any advice you can give?

yes it is hard to find out accommodation in Lahore but not much because of good real estate dealers. They have many options for everyone and one of the biggest reason about finding accommodation earlier is because people live together as a joint family which is why many houses are left there for others to live. its just like there are 10 houses and 70 people. Only 7 houses would be enough for those 70 people because they live together and in this way the accommodation (space) for other people is left and it beomes easier for them to find accommodation.

What is the food like? What are your favourite dishes?

Food in Lahore is the best thing above all. Its tasty, spicy and juicy. People from different countries come to try them and also the chefs of Pakistan are great. Food is great in Lahore because most of the foodies from Pakistan lives there in Lahore. My favourite dish is Briyani, with Chuttni and Qorma. YOU SHOULD DEFINITELY TRY IT!!!

What places would you recommend visiting in Lahore?

For best pictures and memories, Badshahi Mosque, Shahi Fort and Minar e Pakistan. For best desi food and shopping, Anaarkali Bazaar and Ichra Bazaar and for best shopping and best fast food, Fortress and Kareem Block.

Is it good to eat out in Lahore? Can you tell us your favourite spots?

ITS REALLY FUN TO EAT OUT IN LAHORE. Once you start eating out in Lahore, every place is your favourite after a while. My favourite spots are in Ichra Bazaar and Anaarkali Bazaar. MUST TRY IT!!!

Is the nightlife good in Lahore? Where is good to go?

Nightlife in Lahore is the best for those who are more like social people and also for those who loves to eat at midnight and who loves to shop around at night. You can go anywhere in Lahore to get food at night, get something like grocery or anything and also to just explore.

What advice would you give future students heading to Lahore?

For future students heading towards Lahore, I would advice them to start liking spicy food already :D Because they are gonna get that a lot here. Also I would advice them to be prepared for some tough studies. GOOD LUCK FUTURE HEROES!!
