Lahore is known as the heart of Pakistan and in fact, it is more than that when we talk about the sublime beauty of the city. For a tourist, it is difficult to find all kinds of tourist spots in a single city, like there could be many cities which would be famous for a specific kind of tourist destination like historical buildings or spectacular safari parks or beautiful shopping malls. But Lahore is where you would find all kinds of destinations which one wishes to visit. It is a city which provides the visitors with varied kinds of places to visit; you can enjoy the marvelous architecture of the Mughal Era forts, mosques, and tombs or you could enjoy the wonders of modern engineering at the commercial centers. You can visit the historical gardens, buildings and in fact a whole segment of the historical city built in the Mughal era known as "The Walled City". Here you can visit safari parks, zoos water parks, and gardens where you can refresh your soul.
The architectural marvels in Lahore have no parallel in the whole world. Either we talk about the meticulously designed Shahi Qilla or the wonderful design of Badshahi Mosque or even the mix of old-fashioned grandeur and colorful art of the Wazir Khan mosque, it is a place where the cultural enthusiasts can find wonders of architecture.

List of PTDC Hotels and Motels in Pakistan, Contact number of PTDC hotels in Pakistan and Gilgit-Baltistan

To move up in the north like in Skardu and Chitral is what one wants because these places are the epitome of serene beauty and these are the places to give your soul a refreshing environment, away from the crowded and polluted world, but one of the most challenging issues was the unavailability of the standard hotels and motels in these regions.  But fortunately, the issue now has been resolved by the government of Pakistan by establishing a number of PTDC (Pakistan Tourism Development Corporation) motels in these regions which have made the journey convenient, comfortable and memorable. 
The best thing about the PTDC motels in Pakistan is, the motels are located in such desolate places where it is very hard to find prime hotels. For instance, you are traveling on KKH (Karakoram Highway) and suddenly you want to make a stop but you find that there is no existence of any settlement and population around however you would find a PTDC motel even there too. Also, the motels are spacious studded with all kinds of facilites.
