Kabul District Map

Use this map when you need to know which districts have rockets falling in them when you get those security reports.

Kabul City Center

Kabul City Center is a landmark in the city - all directions tend to utilize this building as a focal point. If you know where the KCC is, you can get directions to pretty much anywhere in downtown - "Toilet Street," "Butcher Street," "Chicken Street," and other unique names used by foreigners to figure it all out.

Provincial Maps of Afghanistan Districts

It's important to know which districts are which, especially when the security reports come out. Expatriates need to know which areas or "danger" zones. Pay close attention to district numbers, and learn the boundaries of the city you live in for each of these districts which impact you.

Ethno-Linguistic Map

There are many ethnic and linguistic groups in Afghanistan. Each have subtle differences. If anyone portrays themselves as "experts on Afghanistan culture" consider carefully which ethnic group they have the most experience in...this tends to "color" their interpretation of every other culture group.
