The name Karachi does not lend itself to tranquillity and harmony. It is a giant sprawling city in Southern Pakistan, on the Arabian Sea that offers this former capital some attractiveness. If you're keen to feel sand between your toes, vast Clifton Beach is great to stroll along, though swimming is discouraged.
Without a city centre, Karachi's sights are far & wide. The most significant is Mazar E Quaid, Jinnah Mausoleum, where lays the founding father of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, and whose face adorns Pakistan currency. The Pakistan Maritime Museum and Pakistan Air Force Museum, both close to the National Stadium, are surprising gems where you can spend a good day clambering.
Otherwise, Clifton Beach, Boat Basin, & Zamzama Commercial District are the places to be seen, where an explosion of cafes and restaurants has delivered Pakistan a wealth of culinary delights.
During my second visit to Pakistan in 1998 it was ‘advised’ not to leave the hotel; why would you when daily newspapers listed the murder count to 5pm? Today it's hard to stay inside such is Karachi's change, with calm lending itself to comfortable travel about the city that must include the National Stadium home to a galleryof cricket greats!
When we visit Karachi, we will transfer you to the hotel near Karachi Railway Station where all major hotels are found. We will get you to and from the National Stadium each day, and pending the game's result, may take you to Makli Necropolis. Otherwise, sightseeing will be up to you, if you can leave the swimming pools, high-teas, and daily dinner snacks included in your tour. Once cricket in Karachi is over, we will get back to the airport too!
