Let My Virtual Experience Go
Umar is my best friend who was getting married in December, 2012. He sent me his wedding invitation and made it quite clear that I have to attend it by all means. I have no other option but to pack my belongings, book my reservations and set off to Karachi. We are childhood friends and my intentions were not to disappoint him by marking an absence on this special occasion. I could sense the excitement in his voice when I informed him about my departure to Karachi.
I planned to benefit from this tour as much as possible. Therefore, I decided to visit some spectacular tourist sights in the city. Port Grand tops my list. It provides an extensive area of food street with various facilities and spectacular harbor views for an highly entertaining experience. However, I found Clifton Beach less attractive. It is mainly because, it has been severely affected due to an oil spill in 2003. This oil release has deteriorated this silver sand beach to a great extent.
However, I found Jinnah International Airport and overall this city more than my expectations. There has been highly adequate developments by Government Authorities across the city which has improved the infrastructure facilities to a major extent. I would surely recommend everyone to give a visit to this lovely urban centre, as it would make them familiar about Pakistani culture and also provides an highly entertaining tourist experience.
