Details of the stay: Kabul the time of a weekend - 2 days

Day 1 : Strolling through the city centre

Get up early. Head for the Darulaman district, the most symbolic of the war years. Walk around the ruined palace and visit the National Museum. Lunch of a kebab or a plate of palao in a typical tchaikhana. Then go for a digestive walk along the ramparts of Kabul to admire the view over the whole city, and go down to the gardens of Babur. Visit of Bala Hissar, the ancient citadel. Dinner at a restaurant in Shar-e-Now. Arrange to get the small Afghan Scene magazine or check with expatriates to find out where to go out tonight.... A good basic for a drink: The Divan (The Atmosphere) or, more chic, the Gandamack.

Day 2 : Shopping at the bazaar and exploring the many mosques

Brunch at the Bistro or the Garden. Stroll through Chicken Street and the bazaar to find some memories. Take the opportunity to visit the Shah-do-Shamshira Mosque, still covered with pigeons. Visit Esteqlal French High School and Abdur Rahman Mosque, just across the street. If there is still some time left, quickly visit the City Center to see what a shopping centre looks like in Afghanistan. Sunset on the kite hill (Teppe Maranjan).
