Under $100 / Middle East

Skip a big breakfast and grab coffee or tea from a local shop for an on-the-go traveler. There is a lot to see in Karachi for just a day of travel. A coffee or tea won’t cost more than $3.

Take a leisurely stroll through Hilal Park. It’s largely unknown and will have mostly locals walking through. It’s a gorgeous park with great paths. The trees and fauna that cover the park make it a nice place to take photos.

Eat traditional Pakistani cuisine at an affordable price at Desi Cuisine. The name Desi refers to the restaurants’ homage to South Asian cuisine. Some of the meals highly rated by reviewers are grilled fish, behari boti, spicy dhaga and behari kebabs.

Visit Frere Hall in the afternoon. It’s a stunning building built with Victorian Gothic architecture. This hall dates back to the 1800s when the area was under British rule. It was closed to the public, but has since reopened. The entry fee is $10 for visitors.

For dinner, let this restaurant treat you like a royal. The Lal Qila Restaurant Karachi offers a mock Mughal dining experience, which includes serving food of the Mughal Era. The food is set up in an extensive buffet service for customers to enjoy. A meal will cost less than $25.

In the evening a walk by Clifton Beach will surprise visitors with one of the tallest jet fountains in the world. There are even boat tours that will take visitors up close to see the fountain.

Today, all 116 rooms at the hotel have been painted with street murals, becoming some of the most distinctive lodging spaces in the city.
