There’s so much to discover and more importantly, businesses have been enhancing throughout these past 70 years, businesses that may have been foreshadowed previously. Professions have been popping up around the town, there’s a requirement for everything now.

Enjoying the perfect sunset at the Clifton Beach to Admiring the architecture at Frere Hall or Mohatta Palace, or acknowledging the history behind Mazar-e-Quaid or taking a stroll around empress market to shop for some exotic spices, or get basically ANYTHING in or Bohri Bazar, sounds exciting, right? There’s so much more though! Unwind from the daily grind at the Sandspit beach, see some planes and daydream about flying at the PAF Museum, wander around the streets of Saddar and I promise you’d be mesmerized by the abandoned buildings there amidst the busy markets, like I said, “There’s so much more!”.

You’d find a modernized version of the city near the Clifton beach as there are new buildings being constructed one by one, I reckon very soon it’ll be called the new Dubai if anything, Zamzama probably being the Time Square of Karachi, okay that may be too far-fetched but it’s probable, let’s leave that for the future (but the future is here!).
