A tourist's paradise. This market is a labyrinth of small shops selling handicrafts and casual clothing including export-surplus or slightly defective genuine name brands (Nike, Polo etc.) manufactured locally for export or very good copies of the real thing for a fraction of the real price ! Check out the brass-ware, the pashminas, the rugs and the leather goods as well, all for very reasonable prices. But don't be shy to haggle. It's expected and quoted prices are invariably 30-40% inflated. The market is located in downtown Karachi near Saddar market and close to the Avari Towers hotel and across the road from the imposing 'State Life' buildings - ask any taxi driver.
