The ongoing month should be considered well for the locals of Rawalpindi as well as for the city itself because a few days back the local government has announced a new parking plaza in the city to curb the parking problem and now this new tourism project.

Furthermore, the Government of Punjab has added another route to its tourism bus service in Lahore, and that is Wagah Border. Now tourists can reach to the border and watch the iconic parade without any hassle.
