Take rest, my friend.

From amidst this mess, you take a step out of the metropolis, and voila, you are in a different world. There are barely any humans.

  • Without a doubt Karachi is the business hub or Pakistan and is the most lively city of Pakistan.
    Having said that, the city is overpopulated, full of crime (like any other city of this size), horrible weather, deteriorating infrastructure and above all very expensive to live.
    It all depends on the reasons of moving to karachi. If one intends to conduct a retail business, karachi is one of the best places to do so. If an international type lifestyle is desired, then Islamabad is the best options as houses are cheap, much mellower people in potohar, cheaper to live in, awesome weather.

  • Karachi certainly have a big heart…its truly the pulse of Pakistan…PPP has destroyed its structure…but people are generally very gracious…
