  • All kinds of "world famous brand" You can buy a very low price, but depending on the two point, first you do not care whether you really can be very cheap to buy, but depending on two, first you do not care whether it is true, the second you are very good at bargaining.

  • Karachi is home to an array of shopping plazas, but Zainab Market, located in the heart of the city, is the ultimate shopping destination for many. It was set up in the mid ‘70s, and even with its modest outward appearance, it has garnered a reputation that few bazaars, if any, can match in the country. People flock to it from all over Karachi (and beyond).
  • Good & rather economical market. Show pieces & souvenir shops with variety of things made by marble, onyx, copper, wood, brass, silver. Ready made clothes specially western style patterns & warm items for winter season. Unstitched cloth & local Handicrafts for gift purposes also there. There was a time when Zainab market was an extremely popular place among all ages & classes. Now it's not so because of a phenomenal expansion of shopping choices of same stuff & increasing issue of traffic jams & car parking in Saddar.
  • The happening tail end if Saddar (Karachi oldest business center). whatever you can possibly imagine, you'll get it here somewhere. Shopping, street food, hotels, cinemas, museum... everything is within the radius of a kilometre. The area is famous for its wine shops and a great Iranian restaurant that serves the famous Chullu Kebab.
  • One of oldest markets in Karachi. Good place for childrens garments and mens. Not very good quality stuff but the items are value for money. At times one can get a bargain but then you will need to invest some time and love haggling...
  • It is one of the best n oldest garments market . All kind of clothing variety available here local n imported.
