It all started back in 3000 B.C. in the area located between Kashmir and the Arabian Sea, known as the Indus valley, where one of the first civilizations in the world was born. The two main centers of the Indus valley civilization are Moenjo Daro, located in the Larkana district and the Harappa, situated in the Sahiwal district.

If you are planning a Pakistan trip, the city of Karachi is another must-see. The former capital of Pakistan is located on the Arabian Sea coast, where you will find the astonishing Clifton beach, probably the most beautiful in Asia. While you are in Karachi, you can go shopping, try the traditional Pakistani food, take your children to the Zoo or visit the tomb of Quaid-e-Azam. Tourists that are more eccentric can hire a boat from the harbor and enjoy the views in the middle of the Arabian Sea.
