Visit Karachi: Top tourist attractions Karachi Pakistan

Updated on June 19, 2013

Karachi is a paradise. A place where everyday becomes a discovery. I am not saying this because I'm a Karachiite but I've been truly in love with this city.

Karachi is the biggest city of Pakistan. Karachi, at the southern edge of the country, is the financial and cultural capital of Pakistan. Home to a population of 18 million from all parts of the country, Karachi is termed as Mini Pakistan because of its widely diverse population.

This diversity gives Karachi its own identity. An identity which differs it from the rest of the Pakistan. An identity which makes Karachi one of the most interesting civilizations on the globe today. In addition to its diversity, Karachi has everything it takes to entice you for a visit. Here are the five major reasons why I would love to be your host in Karachi.

Amazing Beaches

Karachi is a beaching heaven. With its shiny sunny beaches, Karachi is one of the most popular beach cities in the world. The relatively mild climate and the sunny days makes the experience much more amazing.

Escape the sheer cold winds and relax yourself on the warm sands. Walk along the beaches, under clear skies, which at night is an experience worth a travel itself. The coastal beauty becomes more breath taking after dusk when the beach is dotted by white streetlights. Karachi's awesome coastal line is itself a great reason to visit the city.

Every beach of Karachi has its own speciality. Clifton, the chief and the most popular beach in Karachi is famous for its silver sand. In addition to the beautiful beach, Clifton is also home to the world's tallest fountain. Hawks bay is not only attractive to beach lovers but also to sea turtles as it serves as the breeding ground for these endangered creatures. The Paradise Point attracts visitors with its rock promontory and a natural rock arch. Discover underwater world with scuba diving. To boil it all up, you can't resist the charm of these beaches if you're a coastal vulture.

Historical Places

Karachi has a rich history. From a small fishermen village to a giant city, Karachi has gone through everything from the Mughal golden period to the British supremacy and from the struggle of independence to the major financial hub that it is today. Each era has left its marks over Karachi. These landmarks are not only a treat for the eyes of history lovers but also are the witnesses of the major events in the history of the city.

One of the most important landmarks in the city of Karachi is the Mausoleum of the Quaid e Azam (the Great Leader) Muhammad Ali Jinnah. The city is also the birth place of the Nation's founder whose splended white marbled mausoleum towers the skies of Karachi. Mohatta Palace is another attraction where Fatima Jinnah (the sister of Jinnah) resided after independence. Other historical marvels include the Wazir Mansion, Empress market and other British RAJ architectures.

In addition to these Karachi also has some old Hindu temples and shrines of Muslim Sufis which are a great attraction to foreign tourists. Karachi also houses a number of great museums like the National Museum of Pakistan.

Awesome Cuisine

The diversity in the population of Karachi has resulted into the development of a mixed culture. This diversity has produced its own taste. The Taste of Karachi. The cuisine of Karachi consists of tastes from the four provinces of Pakistan as well as the Indian cuisines. In addition to these, Karachi also has every dish from around the world.

Wake up and give yourself a blasting breakfast of Halwa Puri. Soothe yourself with a refreshing glass of Lassi. Enjoy the spices of Biryani or have Gulab jaman as desert. Fill your mouths with gol gappa or kill the afternoon heat with a Faluda. You can never have enough of these delicious Karachiite delights.

Heaven for Shopping Addicts

Shopping is an addiction. Don't mind my words but the truth is that it is completely magical. The smell of the malls, the noise of the crowds and the sight of the products. This is all addicting (I can say this because I myself is a dedicated shopper ;-) ).

Karachi is a heaven for shoppers. With products from all over the world at an unbelievingly low price. You can get about Rs. 8700 for just 100$ and you can imagine how much that is by considering that an acoustic costs only Rs.3000. So if you wanna make some good deals then you're in the right part of the world.

So Much To Do

Karachi locally known as the 'City of Lights'. It is said that Karachi never sleeps. The choices are unlimited in Karachi. You can never get enough of this marvellous place. Get to the beach and enjoy the soothing cool breeze hitting your face while you walk naked footed on wet sand. Enjoy cricket in the elite class cricket clubs or just grab a bat and ball and get to a quite street. The cricket lovers will not keep you alone for too long. Eat to your heart's content in any hotel of your choice or grab a camera and snap some pictures of you and your spouse standing with the Quaid's Mausoleum. Or just roam on the streets and witness one of the most interesting crowds in the world. Discoveries awaits you on every step.

      Karachi - my second home. The best thing about this city is its urban and rural delights - one can drive to a number of wetland reserves and Kirthar Range National Park, and sail to mangrove forests.

      Infrastructure wise, people have turned this city into a western city. It is only few mafias that are bringing a bad name to the city.

      This is a nice hub. It's funny; when I hear the name Karachi the first thing that comes to mind is Timothy Dalton in one of the James Bond movies saying, 'I know a great restaurant in Karachi. We'll make it just in time for dinner!' or very close to that. thanks for your interesting notes on the many other things that Karachi offers!
