THINGS TO CONSIDER
DHA Phase 8 is still under construction, therefore, you wouldn’t find a lot of commercial areas such as shopping malls, markets and offices here. Moreover, people who do not have personal vehicles are going to face a lot of trouble during their daily commute. One can’t always depend on other people to get dropped at the nearest bus stand. Plus, using Careem and Uber on a daily basis is not economical. In addition, people on a tight budget who wish to rent a flat in this area also don’t have many options at the moment.
