Largest Pakistani City Karachi
Dolmen Mall Karachi
Karachi is the largest city in Pakistan and the capital of SindhProvince. It is also the primary commercial city in Pakistan as well as the largest port of the country.
Karachi is a city populated by 20 million residents, recording itself as among the largest metropolises in the world. Karachi focuses mainly on the industries of textile, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, steel and automobiles. The city is also known to be a software outsourcing hub in Pakistan.
The city credits its growth to the mixed populations of economic and political migrants and refugees from different national, provincial, linguistic and religious origins who have largely come to settle here permanently.
It is locally termed as the City of Lights for its liveliness and the City of The Quaid, for not only being both the birth and death place of Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah the founder of Pakistan but also his home after 1947. Residents and those born in the city are called "Karachiites".
While the world media have presented Pakistan as a war zone on the verge of total collapse, the developments that have taken place in Karachi depict a completely different picture of the real Karachi. The present city of Karachi has risen to high standards, be it with regard to culture, education or commerce.
The most remarkable development is the construction of the three signal-free corridors that has made a non-stop journey possible for citizens from one end to the other end of the city, reducing their travel time from two hours to just 15 to 20 minutes. These corridors were constructed rapidly and have helped in the resolution of traffic problems up to a large extent. The existing roads have been repaired and widened and also new roads have been constructed to provide convenient travel to citizens living in different areas of the city.
The other major development one can witness is the increased number of attractions such as parks, cinema halls, shopping malls, lively restaurants and tea houses and clubs etc.,
Epecially The Arena family entertainment center which is one of its kind and pioneer in the field of refined and sophisticated family entertainment and recreation. It features the Power House Gymnasium, Ice skating, Bowling alley, miniature golf pool TABLES kiddy rides VIRTUAL BOWLING VIRTUAL SIMULATOR arcade games gymnasium rock climbing paint ball food outlets and mocktail/dessert bar, many of them having been introduced for the first time in the country.
Expansion of private radio and TV stations and increased freedom for the print media and liberalization of broadcasting policies is another major development. Pakistan’s print MEDIA are now among the most outspoken in South Asia.
Last but not the least is the AWARENESS that has developed among the people in regard to politics education religion health economy and technology. The youth of Karachi are now more hardworking intelligent and bright. Computer internet and mobile phones have become a necessity and are very commonly being used by most of the population.
