Hi! It is perfectly fine to visit Lahore in October. Rather, the weather would be very nice. Just be careful when going out using conventional wisdom. Don't be out too late. Only use bottled water. Avoid areas with less activity.

Main attractions you should cover:

- Lahore Fort

- Badshahi Mosque (right next to Fort)

- Heritage Food Street (try out Cukoos Restaurant or Andaaz Restaurant)

- Lahore Museum

- Jahangir's Tomb

- Shalimar Gardens

- Anarkali Bazaar (a maze of streets where vendors sell everything - beware of pickpockets)

- Liberty Market (for shopping - clothes, jewellery, accessories)

- M.M. Alam Road (for upscale Pakistani & Continental food)

- For a familiar cup of Australian Cappuccino head off to Gloria Jeans or Coffee Tea & Company for best delis, cakes and brownies (both off M.M.Alam Road in Gulberg area)

October is very nice time to visit Lahore as the weather is not too hot.

Also don't miss visiting Lahore Fort,Wazir Khan's mosque and Cucko's restaurant next to Lahore fort.

The weather will be excellent in October, if you are staying for 7 nights you can also take a trip to Khewara Salt Mines through Motor Way, it will take 3-4 hours drive to get there, but once you get there it is an absolute masterpiece of nature from where you can also take some decoration items made of salt.

And on your way you can also enjoy the scenic beauty of motorway with green fields all around you. Hopefuly you will enjoy a lot there in and will be able to have your muscles relaxed.

All the best.

It is a nice time of the year to visit Lahore when the weather is not very hot. There are lots to see in Lahore as mentioned above. Don't miss the flag lowering cermony at Wagaha. Also don't miss the Sufi musical event.

Enjoy your trip.

Agree with all of the above replies. Pakistan is a very friendly country. People are honest, trust worthy and hard working. They respect women. October is the best time to visit anywhere in Pakistan. Just be careful with your dressing. DO NOT WEAR SLEEVE LESS SHITRS, DO NOT WEAR SKIRTS AND DO NOT WEAR SHORTS/CAPRI PANTS. You must try to wear long, full sleeve shirts that fall below your hips, try to cover your head in busy public places. Hope you have a wonderful time in Pakistan.
