Karachi is Pakistan's largest and most diverse city known as the gateway to Pakistan. The lively port is also the financial and commercial capital of the country and is one of the most rapidly growing cities in the world. With a hugely diverse population of nearly 15 million people, the city's arts and culture community is thriving making it an ideal location for travellers to come and explore.
Karachi was founded as "Kolachi" by Sindhi and Baloch tribes from Balochistan and Makran, who established what was a small fishing community in the area, and by the late 1720s, the village was trading across the Arabian Sea with Muscat and the Persian Gulf region.
Now Karachi is an exciting city where anything is possible, a place where people have made castles out of the sand and earned fantastic wealth. It’s why, every year, people immigrate here in search of jobs, education and a new life.
