“Happiness is not in money, but in shopping,” an intelligent person once said and we absolutely agree. Do you know shopping is as therapeutic as any other therapy in the world? If not, then it’s time you do some research and get ready to enjoy a dose of retail therapy in the heart of K-town. That’s right, Karachi will soon get to witness a grand shopping bazaar where one can bag the best bargains and products all under one roof. Organised by Danish Khan of DK Events, Imran Qadri and Saleem Bhatti, a mega shopping gala will soon begin in the city of lights under the banner of Pakistan Global Bazaar.
This one-of-a-kind bazaar will be set up at Karachi’s Global Marquees from the 10th of Ramadan to Chaand Raat, where the city’s residents would get a chance to enjoy shopping, as well as have the most entertaining time of their life. Following the festive atmosphere of the holy month of Ramadan, the bazaar offers the most amazing shopping experience for Karachi’ites.

The bazaar is a hub for shopping, food, competition and amusement – it’s indeed all in one! A special area for kids has also been planned so that they can have fun and enjoy the amusement facilities, while their parents can shop around without having to worry about their kiddos. A cooking competition is also planned for those who want to try their luck with winning a competition.

To let attendees get some much-needed dose of Sufi music, the Pakistan Global Bazaar’s organisers have roped in the magical Sufi qawwal Ustad Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, whose presence and soul-stirring performance will be the best part of the exciting 20-day affair.
In order to ensure the blessedness of the holy month of Ramadan, organisers are planning to set up a special spot for attendees to offer prayers and take some time to focus on spiritual detox.
