Cheap Flights to Karachi
The heart of Pakistan, Karachi is set on the turquoise waters of the Arabian Sea in the mega-metropolis, the country’s original capital and the de facto capital of Pakistani commerce and politics to this day. Once an old fishing village has now become a trading post to the urban city centre is evident throughout the city, where dome-topped mosques, old colonial structures and urban skyscrapers form a stunning skyline against the sandy beaches of the Arabian Sea. In today’s world, the melting pot of Karachi welcomes tourists to soak up the rich history of the city, immerse themselves in a microcosm of modern Islamic culture and indulge in the perks of an increasingly international city.
The amount of neighbourhoods and attractions that compete for a tourist’s attention is almost overwhelming. Sun-soaked beaches encircling the city offer various opportunities for water sports, including diving and fishing. Green locations like Bagh Ibne Qasim park provide an idyllic retreat in the heart of this urban metropolis, while lavish shopping malls, amusement parks and movie theatres keep everyone entertained within the city limits. A host of Anglo-Indian and colonial architecture remains throughout Karachi, with must-watch specimens like the Mohatta Palace Museum, Empress Market and Frere Hall. The National Museum of Karachi offers insight into the country’s tumultuous history, while Wazir Mansion – the family home of the country’s founder – exhibits the possessions like clothing and other stuff of Muhammid Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan.
