Experience Karachi: what to see, what to do
As a business centre for Pakistan, Karachi is a fine mix of cultures, blending MIddle Eastern with Central Asian and Western traditions. The waterfront is a big draw for visitors to Karachi with pretty beaches, the Port Grand and nearby islands teeming with coral reefs and natural beauty.
Essentials in Karachi
Port Grand: For food and entertainment, look no further than this place near Native Jetty Bridge. The pier is pedestrian friendly and lined with amazing food stalls, bazaars, art ships and more. Don't miss the main attraction, a 150-year old Banyan tree!
Beaches: There are plenty of beaches, each with their own draw. Clifton Beach for horse-back riding (swimming not recommended), Hawke's Bay Beach for turtle watching, Sandspit Beach for family-friendly fun and French Beach, arguably Karachi's most beautiful beach.
Churna Island: There are several beautiful islands just off the coast from Karachi but Churna Island is one of the best to visit. It is home to Pakistan's only coral reef and also has a marine park with dolphins, sea urchins, barracudas, angel fish and plenty more.
