Does anyone know the current situation in Karachi? Whether is it generally safe or pretty dangerous etc... Are there loads of violence on a daily basis? Help me out!
Situation now a day is lot more better than before. Even we had travelers during that time when there was much violence. But don't worry, you'll barely have any bad thoughts about this city. Generally its safe to get around. Only street crime is a thing to worry about.
Current situation is pretty favorable for visitors
I would say if you're female take off all your jewelery before coming in KHI. Street crime is really high...Almost everyone exposed daily has got their cell phone snatched at least once. I would not recommend it as a holiday destination..cuz the weather, traffic and load shedding can really make you lose it.
Ms AimanN first of all check the time/date of the query before replying. It is almost 8 months old post. Secondly don't exaggerate the situation. Street crimes has been reduced to minimal since the involvement of Pakistan Rangers in Karachi.
Karachi is the largest city in the World so it has pros & cons of a large cosmopolitan. Traffic problem is in old city during office start/off timings but otherwise not a big issue.
