About Karachi

From sun-drenched beaches to stylish waterfront restaurants, Karachi has it all. The food, places, monuments, and people's hospitality make this a marvelous destination. The city is full of spice bazaars, where you can enjoy amazing smells and taste such world famous, mouth-watering dishes as Biryani and Kozi Haleem. The vibrant markets offer ample opportunities to shop for stunning designer clothes at voguish boutiques. With diverse cultures, brilliant architectural heritage, abundant history, and countless languages, Karachi (known as The City of Lights) is Pakistan's largest and most popular city. As the main city of the Sindh province and the country's financial capital, it makes huge contributions to the country's economy. Muhammed Ali Jinnah was the founding father of Pakistan ever since its independence from British rule. Karachi's love for him is diplayed everywhere: monuments, buildings, and landmarks. The population of Karachi is almost entirely Muslim. However, there are also small Christian, Hindu, Parsi, Buddhist, and Jain minorities. So, come fall in love with the wonderful city of Karachi!
