Cheap flights from Pakistan

A drive along Karakoram Highway (KKH), the historical caravan trail of the ancient Silk Road and now the highest border crossing in the world at 4,800 metres high might make you look past the troubled country scene of Pakistan, with the overlooking Karakoram Mountains just in hindsight. Cultural capital Lahore will keep you dazed for days with their architectural works. Modern cosmopolitan and financial capital Karachi can be likened to New York City with its hurried lifestyle, also having earned the moniker: the City of Lights, and the City that Never Sleeps. Care enough to look past the travel advisories and news stories to see and learn Pakistan through your very eyes. Pakistan is a bombshell that may take you a lot by surprise.

The crowning capital of the province of Sindh, Karachi’s mixed population with differing cultural background makes it a sin to not take time in exploring the city. Take a bite of the city’s well-loved flavours in Port Grand at MT Khan Road, an extensive food street that houses different restaurants that overlooks the Karachi Harbour. The area is surrounded by quaint shops, bazaars, bookstores, ATMs, and all things pertaining to entertainment in the city. Clifton Beach is a highly popular tourist spot and the world’s most popular silver-sand beach and health resort, before being affected by an oil spill in 2003 that dramatically changed the course of the once crystal clear waters. Still, locals and tourists alike find the Clifton Beach a leisurely stroll. Take further steps away from the beach and your feet will bring you to the Dolmen City, the largest shopping complex of Karachi. Numerous high street shops with international gustatory delights, as well as the local kid-friendly destination Sindbad Amusement Park makes it a perennial family destination.

Allama Iqbal International Airport is the gateway to the second largest city in Pakistan, which shares cultural ties with India. After all, Lahore is the traditional capital of the Punjab province, and was the cultural centre of Northern India that extends all the way to New Delhi. The ancient city of Lahore is now a socially liberal one, credited to thousands of years of invasion from foreign captors. Mughal Empire empowered Lahore with palaces, gardens, and mosques, housed in The Lahore Fort, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Badshahi Mosque is another Mughal’s architectural gift to Lahore, earning the title as the largest mosque in the world. Try searching for the Shalimar Garden, another UNESCO World Heritage Site located alongside GT Road. A once in a lifetime experience you should not miss is the ceremonial passing in the Wagah Border between Pakistan and India to visit the Golden Temple, with many tourists attesting the exhilarating experience.

From Jinnah International Airport in Karachi, you can reach other neighbouring countries such as Colombo in Sri Lanka in just four hours travel time. Sri Lanka is a country filled with ancient capital ruins, untamed wildlife roundabouts, and spiritually close religious ties to Buddhism. Pay homage to the city of Anuradhapura and the Polonnaruwa. See the partially restored ancient ruins such as the Ruwanwelisaya, the oldest stupa in Anuradhapura, and take a stroll in the Bendiwewa reservoir, part of Parakrama Samudra in Polonnaruwa. Take time to visit Kandy, a UNESCO World Heritage Site that houses the tooth relic of Buddha, tucked away in an ornate casket that is best viewed at 6:30 p.m.

Trot halfway across the globe. It is possible to reach Manchester in United Kingdom in roughly eight hours and fifteen minutes travel time. This city in England has a lot of interesting in store for every traveller, be it unleashing on a shopping spree in The Triangle, an upmarket shopping centre, or enjoying the entitlement of being a wine connoisseur in Harvey Nichols, or simply being a kid for a day and wandering around in LEGOLAND Discovery Center Manchester, and letting the rides, indoor playgrounds, 4D Cinema, and several LEGO workshops take you back to your kid-at-heart childhood days.
