Arriving in Karachi
Known as the City of Lights for its vibrant nightlife and evening café culture, Pakistan’s capital of Karachi is also a cultural epicentre for the region, as well as an important commercial and industrial hub. An estimated 23.5million people are packed into its streets and buildings, making it one of the biggest cities in the world. A city of such size and history has plenty to attract visitors, and tourists who make the journey to Karachi and are never disappointed.
Book a flight to Karachi with Qatar Airways and let us introduce you to a vibrant, exciting and cosmopolitan destination that’s full of energy. From the sublime elegance of the Port Grand promenade to the welcome tranquility of the Bagh-e-Ibn-e-Qasim park, Karachi has plenty to offer visitors.
Most of the main tourist attractions are focused in the south of the city, including the Port Grande pier-side promenade, a pedestrian-friendly boardwalk lined with exclusive restaurants with harbour views. Strangely enough, its focal point is not a building, but a 150-year old Banyan tree. Boat trips to the surrounding bays run regularly from Port Grande.
The splendid tomb of Pakistan’s founding father, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, is a prominent landmark in the heart of the city. The Quaid-e-Azam's Mausoleum and Museum is also an excellent starting point for visitors who want to learn more about the history and culture of the country.
Karachi also has over 80km of beaches and coastline, and the natural beauty of the region is stunning. There are also a number of islands dotted off the coast, and ferries take visitors to Minora Island and Churna Island, where diving schools offer regular trips out to discover some spectacular underwater attractions.
Flights to Karachi with Qatar Airways land at Jinnah International Airport. Visa restrictions for entry into the country will depend on your country of origin, length of stay and whether your trip is for business or pleasure. Before you fly to Karachi please check the visa and passport requirements.
