    • Thinking of travelling to karachi- European girl????

      Karachi Aug 2, 2014 at 2:58 AM

      Hi im a european girl from ireland and im thinking of travelling to karachi soon to meet my friend and his family. I already got the visa but i have some concerns. Is it safe to go there if i would meet him and his family at the airport? they have they're own car and they would drive me to where he lives. They live in an apartment so i would stay with them.

      When i asked the pakistani embassy here if its safe to go there they said yes its safe.. so im confused because when i read online about karachi its mixed response. When i ask my friend he keeps saying his area is safe and lots of people came from canada etc and they were all fine.

      So please im looking for any honest advice about my situation and many thanks if you can help :)

    • Karachi Bird Market

      Karachi Jul 19, 2012 at 4:07 PM

      I've never been to Karachi, but for a radio play I'm writing, I'm desperate to learn any details about the Karachi bird market: what type of birds are sold there, are they for both pets and for food? Etc. I also understand there is a tradition in Karachi (or perhaps other cities in Pakistan) of birds being released after they are purchased (in the market, or from young boys in the street), as a way of releasing a personal burden. I know this is also a Buddhist practice (done in Thailand among other places) but I doubt it stems from the Buddhist tradition in Pakistan. Does anyone know more about this practice in Karachi, or the bird market in general? Please share!
      Many thanks

    • Info/help! Coming to Karachi After Ramzan For 2-3 Days

      Karachi Aug 1, 2011 at 3:27 PM

      Salams and Ramzan Mubarak to everyone!

      I'm a foreign born desi flying in to Karachi for 2-3 days next month after Ramzan and need help/guidance as my extended family no longer live in Karachi (they have all moved to Hyderabad or Lahore).

      I'm really excited to be visiting Karachi after almost 10 yrs as I have fond memories there (I loved the food, the sights, shopping, etc) but am also concerned because of the recent violence I hear about, deception/crime others tell me about, and lastly because I won't have a local relative with me this time.

      The below is what I'm requesting info and guidance on in addition to whatever else you think is important. If you're able to provide any specifics (phone #s, addresses, websites, etc), that would be great!

      1) Place to stay: Should be safe but inexpensive (hotel/guest house?) with air conditioning and internet access. I'm told that the electricity goes on/off in Karachi so hopefully a place with a generator. I'm not sure of the price ranges but I'm told I can get a safe and inexpensive place for 1500-2000 rupees a day, true? Any particular names, phone numbers, addresses?

      2) Activities: I'd like to try to enjoy myself for the 2-3 days I'll be in Karachi, so I'm interested in eating out at all the places that shouldn't be missed (I hear alot about Burns Rd, Javed Nihari, BBQ Tonight, Lal Qila, Student Biryani, the fish/seafood places in Minora, Kulfi, etc). I'd also like to check out the natural sights like Clifton, Minora, and other places. Lastly, I need to go to Bari's Tailors in Cooperative Market to buy cloth and to give an order for some shalwar khamees. Maybe the place to stay should be close to these activities?

      3) Getting Around: I don't know my way around Karachi and don't think I can handle the buses. I've heard some people mention that they hire a car with driver for the day for about 1000-2000 rupees, true? If so, how safe and reliable are these drivers and does it include fuel costs? Any particular suggestions?

      Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions. If you'd like to contact me via email, my email address is Ismomir@yahoo.com.

      Jazakullah khair for everyone's help!

      Is it reasonable to expect to by one for about usd 60 per m2. My wife is Turkish and very gifted in bargaining but it might be unlikely anyway.
