If you are thinking about celebrating Valentine’s Day and live in Karachi, consider heading to Phase VI, DHA.
See and be seen… Phase VI is home to several well-known commercial hotspots, including Bukhari, Rahat, Seher and Shahbaz commercial areas, where many of Karachi’s trendy restaurants, coffee shops and chai dhaabas are located. There are also plenty of spas where you can indulge yourself, not to mention gift shops, book and home stores, as well as bakeries and florists where you can find the perfect present for your Valentine.
Relax and unwind… If you are a nature lover or looking for a quiet, relaxing evening under the stars, Hilal Park is the place to go. Possibly one of Karachi’s best landscaped Parks, it stretches over a hillock and boasts of manicured gardens, walking tracks, a play-area and an abundance of greenery, making it a perfect spot for relaxation or a picnic.
Go for a long drive… If none of these options are to your liking, then consider going for a long drive along Phase VI’s wide roads that will lead you to the beach, where you can soak in the sunset. One the way you will see modern, sprawling houses and well-manicured lawns, as well as mansions that have stood there for decades which exhibit classic architectural styles.
The real estate take… Phase VI is classified as a premium residential area; residential property options include houses and apartments. Nearly 85% is built up and vacant plots are available. Property is in high demand; purchase prices and rentals increased by nearly 20% annually.
In a nutshell… With trendy dining spots, plenty of shopping avenues and the verdant Hilal Park, Phase VI is an ideal destination for Valentine’s Day.
