Transfer Lahore to Amritsar

We will be visiting Lahore from Amritsar next February and will then return to Amritsar.

Is there a Train Service that goes both ways ,what days and Time does this operate.Is there a website to book on.

Alternatively is there a Reasonable Bus Service,if not is there a website to connect for booking a Taxi,What are the fares like.

Whilst in Lahore is there a Bus Tour of the various Historical areas to visit,or is there a Touring company that arranges such trips,or the Taxi???

Recommendation for a Reasonable 4-5 star hotel down town ie near the Mall or GPO will be appreciated.

Is it safe for Females to walk about during the day?

Kisse, Warmly welcome you to Pakistan,

Regarding train, very sorry to say that there was train services called Samjhota express but stopped to operate.

Therefore, the best and possible way to do this trip, take train from Delhi to Amritsar and catch taxi to border than catch to Lahore city which is not much far.

If you want to come in the public bus than PTDC operate daily at 9:00am from Lahore and will take about 4-5 hours to reach Amritsar. For this reason booking must be done at personal presence and no problem to get the seats.

With in Lahore, of course there are local public transport and operating and for sure you will encounter the historical places. But keep in mid the city is over crowd and will take enough time to reach the desire places, the reason public transport always falls on the rush areas. For tour companies i recommended some on the other posts, better if you can reach them and they will arrange the tour from waga - lahore - waga, this way you will be out of hassles.

Regarding hotels, pearl continental hotel (PC) is only one top class hotel with in cities, which ranks 5 star in the town. The lower one is Avari hotel, next one is Leader's inn, next one is Ambassador hotel. I was in Lahore few days ago with some foreign friends, we stayed at Plaza Park hotel, of course it is tourist class but the services were out standing.

Let me know if you need more assistance,

there is a train service but its a real pain. The best way by far is to walk. Get a taxi from Lahore to Wagah border. Then you walk through immigration and through the border to Attari on the other side (about 500m walking, someone can carry your bags for a small fee). If possible, find a car hire company in Amritsar that can meet you at the border, and call the Indian driver before you leave Lahore. I have done this about 3 times, and its easy and interesting!
