The largest shopping center of Islamabad is The Centaurus. Trade pavilions of the world's most famous brands are assembled there. You can purchase amazing outfits from world-famous designers, or choose beautiful Asian-style clothes at a really attractive cost. The center has many play areas for children, restaurants, and cafes with open terraces that offer a wonderful view of the mountains.
Those who don't go to overcrowded and noisy shopping centers, will appreciate Safa Gold Mall. It is distinguished by a very calm and measured environment and offers clothing and accessories of popular brands. There are jewelry and cosmetics stores, as well. The last floor of the shopping center is fully placed at the disposal of restaurants and cafes. There is an excellent supermarket on the ground floor for budget tourists.
Not far from the prestigious Kabul restaurant is a wonderful Saeed Book Bank bookstore. This three-story store offers smart booklets and books about Pakistan. Tourists can get excellent maps showing the main attractions, as well as photo albums with magnificent views and books on the history and culture of the country. The store has a fairly large department with stationery goods. You can buy bright notebooks and pens as souvenirs.
