A lot of tourists come to Karachi every year to uncover the largest city of Pakistan. Whether you are from Pakistan or outside of Pakistan when you are in this city you should do a try to go to these ten places and explore.

Aladeen amusement park is one of the very famous picnic spots for families. The entry fees are only fifty rupees right now for adults and kids. Inside there are many many rides like the adventure rides, the jumps, and the tiger. The tiger ride is in our other ride like the one which is called fairies wheel.

The second place on my list is the Empress market is very famous in Karachi for quite a long time and it is famous for dry fruits and vegetables and other foods you can see the shops all over there and, you can see many foreign people are also visiting this market and doing shopping because it is the traditional one.

Next on my list is The lucky one shopping mall in Karachi. It is located in Gulshan Iqbal, there is a very huge food court area, they also have all the brands in the hyper star supermarket on the ground floor. You can find most of the well-known brands in Lucky One mall, and they have a very nice indoor theme park. You may find all the middle-class and even lower-class people of Karachi inside this mall. This is very crowded especially on weekends but it’s a good place to go and spend some time.

Another most important place to visit in Karachi is the Frere Hall you can see there is a very historic building in Karachi. The building has very importance as it was built by the British in 1865 so this is about 150 years old. You should not miss it when you are in Karachi. This is located in the southern area and effortless to access by public transport or you can just walk here. There is no fee at all and you can enter from all the gates inside the building. There is a very nice art gallery where you will find the Pakistani art. On the ground floor, there is a library: a public library you can visit, and this was originally built actually for the town hall of Karachi. I mean that it was the town hall of Karachi but now it is just an Exhibition Centre like the art gallery is. Karachi to visit, it’s so incredibly beautiful you shine like gold so selfless.

The main point in Karachi which is accessible to everyone is Beach. This is the a common place that everybody comes here for a picnic with their friends and family. You can have a horse ride here and also a camel ride here, there are small open cars that you can ride on just for 100 rupees. The horse and the camel rides are also just for 100 rupees. So, this place is very affordable, very easy to get into and there are always people whether you come on weekdays or weekends you will find so many people. This is not the cleanest place in Karachi but still, you can have a look at this if you want to meet local people.

Another interesting place to visit is PAF Museum which means Pakistan Air Force Museum. This should be in the top three of your destinations in Karachi to visit. This is also a family place, family place means that you have to bring a female with you to be called a family. The entry fee is just 60 rupees which is like 40 cents and there are many things you can find actually in this park. You will find many symbols of small and big aircrafts of the Pakistan Air Force.

Mahuta palace in Karachi is very beautiful and very easily accessible from anywhere in Karachi. The entry fees are just 30 rupees which are 20 US dollar cents. If you just put the name of this Mahuta palace on google map you will easily reach here from anywhere in Karachi, that’s why it is on the top of my list of must-visit places in Karachi. This was built in 1927 exactly 92 years before by a Hindu businessman who came from Rajasthan and they brought the pink stones from Rajasthan and the yellow stones from Karachi to build this nice beautiful palace here. This was his residence for summer and after the partition of Pakistan and India, he went to India Rajasthan, so, this palace is now owned by the government. Inside the palace, there’s a museum as well on the ground floor you will see some different cultures.

Here in Karachi, one of the best places to visit is the shrine of Quaid e Azam; the founder of Pakistan. This is also a very huge part for the public many people especially the local people of Karachi come here daily for picnics with their families. You can also find a museum right there just alongside this tomb of Quaid e Azam and the museum contains all the stuff used by Muhammad Ali Jinnah in his lifetime. This place should be on the top of the list, I mean the number one place to visit in Karachi because this is a historical and cultural place. Many foreign dignitaries and foreign guests also visit this place just to give a tribute to the founder of Pakistan.

I would say that Karachi is a safe city to visit. So, a lot of tourists come to Karachi every year. It’s really big but you can take right from Careem or Uber you can go everywhere. You have a lot of places to see in Karachi, you have parks, you have museums, you have Empress market, you have the tomb of Quaid e Azam, and Beach. I would say everybody should come here once in his life. And What I like most is that you can get different unique street foods, also you have so many different kinds of cuisine and restaurants which I like. I also like Pakistani clothing it’s very colorful and adorable. I think the strength of Pakistan is the people they are warm hearted and friendly.
