The beaches of Karachi provide a unique experience where not only do the waters blend in with the land, but rich with the poor, eccentric with the usual. Street artists, fortune tellers and hawkers walk the promenades alongside high-end businessmen and shopping opportunities span from the local Sunday bazaars to high-couture stores.
