Must-See Recreational Sites to Visit in Karachi

Karachi is the city that sure has a lot to offer. There is a reason that it is called the ‘City of Lights’. It is because of the certain chirpiness and fun in the air of Karachi that makes it distinctive from the other cities of the country.


Also, a whole lot of residential properties in Karachi is a treat for investors, both local and offshore. It would not be wrong to say that Karachi is kind of New York of Pakistan. Oh, but the abundance of pigeons make it look like London, don’t they? Whichever of the two, the point is that we love the city and the vibes of it. One major reason because of this massive love for Karachi is because of the entertainment opportunities it has. There are so many places to visit and so many recreational sites that everyone going to Karachi must visit. Yes, the biryani is mandatory and of course the Nihaari too, but the following are the places that you must not miss out when you visit Karachi next time.

Sea View

Ah, the beach will always be the first love in this beautiful city. Who does not go to Sea View when in Karachi? We all do, and so many of us even go to Karachi so we get a chance to go to the seaside. So, this has to come at the top of this list.

Charna Island

If you list the places from one to ten, this should definitely top the list of the recreational sites in Karachi. The only reason I have placed it on the second number is because a lot of people still do not know about it and seldom get to go there. But man! This is the place- the place for ultimate fun and recreation. For all the crazy fans of deep water diving, swimming and Scuba, this is the ultimate spot that Karachi has. It is one of its kind in Karachi and is no less than the recreational sites of the similar nature in Dubai and other cities around the world that the tourists are mostly attracted to.

Dolmen Mall

No this is not just the mall, rather a complete package. There are games, food, cinema and a lot more in Dolmen Mall Karachi. You can drop off your kids in the food court or in the play area and shop your heart out. It has all the brands under one roof and is a one-stop shopping solution for all shopaholics.

Do Darya

Do Darya is also a place alongside the sea. These are the restaurants built along the seaside for the perfect ambiance. The place not just houses the perfect Karachi cuisine but gives an extraordinary feel and environment as well. Go there during the day time or at night, it will not disappoint you either way. In fact, go to the place both in daylight and in the night time to get the best of both the slots.

Port Grand

Port Grand is another masterpiece built over the seaport. It is a kind of a ship built on the sea. Yes, on the sea. You get to see the sea from both sides of it and you would never understand how amazing that looks and feel until and unless you go there and experience it yourself. Port Grand has a food street that brings a number of local to international food chains right here for you to eat in an ambiance that you would absolutely love than a regular restaurant. And food is not just it. There is shopping, entertainment, games, festivals and a lot of fun going on almost throughout the year. This is one of the greatest tourist attractions in the city.

Mohatta Palace

Mohatta Palace is known as the jewel of the city of lights. The historic significance of the building is that it used to be the residence of Fatima Jinnah and a number of Qawali nights used to be hosted here back in their time. The building is also a great work of art and architect. It is an amazing combination of red brick, pink stone and yellow stone, which is no less than a treat to eyes when put together in the form of this building.

PAF Museum

Pakistan Air Force (PAF) Museum is another spot you must not miss when you visit Karachi. It holds great historical and military significance and tells a lot about our country’s history and the wars in the past. If you are a person who is either into history or into the military, this place is definitely for you.

Quaid-e-Azam Mausoleum

There are so many reasons to go there, number one being that it is the last sign of our great national leader. Go there to appreciate the historic building made out of white marble, the great architect of it, to offer your regards to Jinnah, to pray for him, and because you must! As simple as that. Oh, and by the way, it also houses the tomb of Jinnah’s sister, our Madr-e-Millat, the great Fatima Jinnah.

So now that we have shown you where to go and what to do, book your tickets now for the city and go check out all of these places to believe us on how breath-taking amazing they are. Happy Exploring!
