Karachi is congested, messy and loud but Karachi has its own uniqueness which no other city of Pakistan has. The only thing is that you have to be the part of this city to enjoy.

Start from the clifton beach know as ‘Sea View’.

Just a km away go to ‘Dolmen City Mall’.

Then move towards the Park, ‘Bagh Ibn-e-Qasim’, a very big park.

After this visit the food street plus other activities at ‘Port Grand’.

For shopping visit ‘Saddar’ this is a big area, you can visit ‘Zaibunnisa street’, ‘Rex Center’, ‘Zainab Market’ and adjoining. Also ‘Tariq Road’ and ‘Bahadurabad’ are famous for shopping.

Visit ‘The Mall’ in ‘Ocean Towers’ and then you can have a dim light, under the sky, near the sea dinner at ‘Do Darya’

Much much more depending on days and how much you can handle.

If you want some adventure then I'd suggest you Hingol national park, 240 Km, 3.5 hrs from Karachi.

Take a "super savari express" tour to get an idea of old areas. Its worth a try. You can get the info from their facebook page.

Cheers!!

5 star hotels such as Marriot and Movenpick are near the old city area and central business district. that makes it easy to move around to mentioned spots . you can use uber or careem ride services but it wont have the same experience as taking a tour such as "Super savari express" which is like the local version big bus tours

For local handicrafts and traditional shopping the "saddar" area and specifically zaibunissa street and Empress market are worth checking out
