Arriving in Karachi
If you're out for a truly unforgettable sample of culture, and a break that will stimulate every one of your senses, there is no better option than a cheap flight to Karachi. Before landing at Jinnah International Airport, situated a stone's throw away from the centre of the city, you'll soar over miles of beautiful, sparkling ocean to this paradise on the southern coast of Pakistan. Called the city of lights by many, Karachi is an incredible, vibrant city where there's always something going on, and a unique corner of the world filled with dozens of different cultures, people, and environments all contributing to one awe-inspiring place.
We're sure you'll find something for everyone in this incredible city; from swimming in the crystal-clear Arabian Sea to riding camels on the beaches and through the stunning rural areas. Karachi is home to hundreds of local and international cuisines, ranging from five-star dining to the unique tastes of market street vendors. Private cabs or rickshaws will take you from place to place, letting you sample the intrigue of Karachi's bustling markets where you can haggle for all sorts of eastern curiosities, or the many historical landmarks where you can learn about the city under the rule of Alexander the Great and the British empire.
If the buzzing heart of the city isn't quite to your tastes, Karachi has many peaceful areas where you can escape from the hassle, such as the beautiful Bagh Ibne Qasim park, and Port Grand, a large food and entertainment area where you can wind down and reflect on all you've seen and done. Here you can stroll leisurely through the warm Asian evenings, and see the port's famous 150-year-old Banyan tree, and the iconic Napier's tavern. Further to this, you'll find dozens of shops, bazaars, florists, book stores, art lanes and a stunning Hindu temple.
Whether you know a lot or a little about Pakistani society, your visit to Karachi will offer some incredible cultural experiences. The Karachi flower show is always a huge event, attracting enthusiasts and tourists from all over the country. Come to the city in March, and you'll learn all about the birth of the Pakistani republic, celebrated every year to commemorate the Lahore resolution.
