Kabul

Trip Planner Asia  /  Afghanistan  /  Kabul Province  /  Kabul
A trip to Kabul reveals an intense portrait of Afghanistan's past, present, and future. First built some 4,000 years ago, Kabul served variously as a center for Zoroastrians and Buddhists, and then was subject to a dizzying number of conquerors and empires, from Alexander the Great and the Mongols to the British colonial forces. The late 20th and early 21st centuries have seen Kabul ravaged by war, though the beleaguered city is making an effort to lift itself from the ashes, with new restaurants and markets constantly opening. Alongside these, top Kabul attractions include an array of historical mausoleums, mosques, and palace ruins, as well as a set of museums that shed light on the capital's ancient heritage. Attractive and expansive green spaces provide a great place to relax, and day trips to the surrounding valleys, plains, and reservoirs remain a favorite among foreign visitors. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Kabul trip itinerary using our Afghanistan holiday planner.

Where to stay in Kabul

Accommodations in Kabul run on the expensive side, since security presents a particular concern. Short-term visitors may opt for a hotel, but if you're staying for longer, the city's many guesthouses might provide a more comfortable option. Luxury establishments cater to international visitors with clean, modern rooms, swanky decor, and lavish amenities including onsite restaurants, swimming pools, and fitness centers. Mid-range hotels and guesthouses provide basic rooms, some with Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, and other services. Budget guesthouses offer shared bathrooms. Most lodgings cluster in the city center, with access to attractions and plenty of parks, while just a few hotels lie farther out to the west.
