It should be noted, that all historic travelers were inspired to write and share their journeys. Although their journeys were groundbreaking or lead to discoveries, our trips in the summer might not bring the same effect when they come to writing. However, it was the feeling of discovery that instilled greatness into the writings of the legendary travelers, and that effect can still be brought. Travel journals can be really inspirational and fruitful, read on to learn why that is.
Karachi, known as the city of lights is the economic hub of Pakistan. Having a population of around 23.5 million people it is the most densely populated city within the country and the second most densely populated city in the world. Due to its large population and great economic activity, it is host to some of the best tourist’s attractions as well. That is if you visit, there are a lot of things to do in Karachi.
Pakistan has not been viewed as a multicultural society. With its rich cultural background and deep intermixing of religious and native customs, little room is left for the country to be influenced by other cultures. Or so we thought. In retrospect, culture is bound to diversify as time goes on and the adaptive nature of people living in any community makes it impossible to avoid change. Tripkar brings you some interesting facts to consider Pakistan as a global village:
If you’ve ever been to DHA H Block for a bite, you must have taken a look at all the restaurant boards and wondered: So much Karachi in one Lahori street? As a born and raised Lahori, I too felt a bit insecure when around five years ago this, now massive, market began hosting famous Karachi restaurants. But along with the tag, these restaurants brought great food and flavor which is any Punjabi’s biggest weakness! Since then H-Block has been conquered by Karachi restaurant chains and in the process been renamed, quite deserving, New Food Street.
