If you’re looking for options that are on the fancier side Xanders located on E street should be your call. With a division of three branches, breakfast, lunch and dinner all served up on demand xanders has been a karachite favourite. Looking for Pan Asian options, then we would rush to Cocochan for the category and one underrated hidden gem is Firefly Pan Asian located in phase 6 (a budget catering and equally delicious quality food option).

The streets at burns road are always full of food lovers, many uprising food business carts and of course sellers who would love for you to purchase their little lightened up balloons.
The omni carting circuit, located inside airman golf club allows for a thrilling carting experience and is one of the best group experiences. Speaking of group experiences Bharia town’s amusement park outside the city is a fun getaway. A more inner city experience can be at bounce Karachi full of trampolines. Yet another memorable day can be spent at PAF Museum’s winter wonderland with the chills on point for the true winter feels below -10 degrees, sweet rides, hot cocoa and even a cafeteria!
