Sunday Book Fair at Frere Hall Karachi - Karachi

Sunday Book Fair at Frere Hall Karachi

Sunday Book Fair at Frere Hall

Every week on SUNDAY Frere Hall transforms into a hub for the literati. The book fair resumed just a little over a year ago. It stopped in 2003 for some reasons. Since an year it has reopened its gates to book lovers. There are eight bookstalls under a marquee.

One can find latest best sellers, cookery books, Children books, Law, Business & Science books. Latest Magazines & many more. Most of the books are in good condition and cheaper than market.

It is located on a walking distance from PC, Sheraton & just in front of Marriott Hotel.

One more place for old/cheap book lovers is Sohrab Katrak Road, Regal Karchi. Here Book Sellers sell older books on footpath. This Market also opens on Sunday when Electronic shops on that street are closed.

Port Grand at Native Jetty Bridge Karachi - Karachi

Port Grand at Native Jetty Bridge Karachi

Watch Dock from Netty Jetty Bridge

Netty Jetty Bridge is situated on the way of Keamari Port near Karachi Port Trust (KPT) building & Merewether Memorial Tower. KPT has built a flyover which has replaced the old Netty Jetty Bridge.

You can view Huge loading/unloading ships with huge cranes from the bridge. Several people come here to watch the dock, calm & deep sea. On the other side KPT Fountain & other high raised buildings of I. I. Chundrigar Road can be viewed from here.

A panoramic view of sunset behind the ships & cranes is a very precious memory.

People come to feed birds & fish with bread, kneaded flour, bread & meat.

Updates:
After the inauguration of Port Grand Food & Entertainment Complex parallel to Netty (Native) Jetty Bridge, a tall railing has been built across the bridge. Therefore one can not look at dock/sea from the bridge.

Port Grand Food & Entertainment Complex has been built over one kilometer bridge length. Old bridge has been transformed into an entertainment and food enclave housing numerous eateries hosting more than 11 restaurants of exotic Pakistani and foreign food and a variety of beverages.

Gadani beach fishries - Karachi

Gadani beach fishries

Gadani Beach - White Sand & Clean Water

As I wrote in my Sea View Tip that beaches within Karachi are polluted. So if you really want a clean beach then go to Gadani Beach. Gadani is a little away from Karachi city at about 1-2 hours drive. It lies in Balochistan Province. Way to Gadani passes from Hab Chawky.

Water is clean & pure blue. Beach is sandy. Sand is white. There are no hard stones/gravel/pabbles on the beach which may harm your feet. You can swim/relax in water for whole day. View of sea & beach from nearby rocks is great. It is best for group of friends or families to come here, Swim, relax or climb the rocks & enjoy.
