It is to be noted that he originally hails from the city of gardens- Lahore. Being born and raised there, he had not visited Karachi till the age of 25.

Even though the graphic designer has worked on similar maps for Islamabad and Lahore, he thinks Karachi was the hardest city to map out. Assam took the news to his Instagram and wrote, “It was the most challenging map that I’ve drawn so far because Karachi has a mini country living inside it.”

Karachi First Tourist Attractions Map Karachi is the largest city of Pakistan and also known as city of lights. As an Artist, Karachi Tourist Map was most challenging map for me so far because it has mini country living inside. Karachi is a secular city of Pakistan and this city always welcome every religion and community from all over Pakistan and beyond borders. Karachi is also city of opportunities for every business person or for a career start up. To make you understand about this city, Karachi is more like Bangkok, Colombo, Mumbai and Cairo apparently or by nature. In fact, weather is almost same as above mentioned cities of the world. To understand Karachi or if you really want to feel this city, you have to live here and explore the hidden ingredients of this city of Pakistan. It took me around 7 to 8 visits to understand the value of this city and still there are so many things that I missed and need to explore or discover and dug into fore more details. I was born in Lahore, Pakistan and never visited Karachi till the age of 25, but after and onward my first visit, my level of interest and curiosity for knowing more about Karachi has been increased. Why? There are so many answers for this why. I believe this city has amazing potential to be the most developed city in the world like Dubai, Beijing, Singapore or New York. Development is always a basic element of tourism which can always help in boosting domestic or international tourism. On the other hand infrastructure plays important role in traveling and trading and I feel there are some factors, Pakistan government should focus on. Apart from the roles of government, as residents of Karachi, this is our role and duty to make our place beautiful and attractive which is an easy thing to do i guess and cost nothing but just some seeds of love.
