With a personality and energy quite different to the rest of Pakistan, Karachi might give you a surprise upon arrival. Unlike other Pakistani cities, Karachi blends Middle Eastern, Central Asian, South Asian and Western influences to produce a truly unique culture, while also providing a platform for its status as a major international business centre.
About two hours out of the city is the historically significant town of Thatta, home to the World Heritage Listed site of Makli Hill. This was supposedly the burial place of 125,000 rulers, Sufi saints and other culturally significant figures. This intriguing necropolis accommodates countless impressive tombs and mausoleums and is well worth a visit.
In stark contrast to the ancient historical side of Karachi is the recently built Atrium Mall and Cinemas in the heart of the city. This ultramodern, impeccably maintained complex offers state-of-the-art 3D cinemas and a huge array of shops and food outlets, and is a proud symbol of the city's ongoing progress and development.
