Getting There in Karachi

Edit This
By Plane

Jinnah International Airport, is Karachi's largest international and domestic airport.  It is also the hub for Pakistan International Airlines, Pakistan's national carrier, which flies to numerous destinations. Facilities in the airport include a McDonald's, a Citibank ATM (in Arrivals), free internet (in departure), hotels and a duty free shop that doesn't sell alcohol. Immigration used to be a lengthy process, but after a rearrangement of counters and the introduction of a green channel in 2006 this is no longer the case.

Karachi is very far from the rest of Pakistani cities, so try to come by plane only.

By Bus

Daewoo Sammi  offers some direct services to/from Karachi, Hyderabad, Lahore and Islamabad, UAN 111-007-008.

Top-Notch bus service as compared to the other bus servces in Pakistan. They are well secured and have their own bus stops, which are also very safe. They provide with lunch (which is a soft drink and a veggi sandwich) and it is air conditioned. There is a bus-hostess there for any kind of help. They provide with a blanket and pillows. Overall, it is almost like a plane but on wheels. Even small shuttle services are provided in smaller cities to get to a larger stop where they get you on the main bus.
