I have been going to this market...............for ages. In our childhood, when our parents would go to Sindh Club or Karachi Gymkhana, our governess would take us to Saddar and strol around this place. In those days, there used to be so many foreigners (goras) shopping for handicrafts and ethnic material from this market. A couple of female foreigners were... More

Test your bargaining skills for the best bet. Specially in eid days. Need to be carefull with the parking, parking in the mall is 50Rs per hour. Wrong parked cars outside can be lifted in no time!!

If you are looking for modern age T-shirts and Jeans this is the best place..... Madina City Mall and International Mall are the main best place but especially Rex center is phenomenal for the jeans pant

This market has something for everyone unless you want BRANDED stuff. Very good rates but haggle and the price will be halved. I bought a whole lot of garments at very good prices but had to really haggle -all in good spirit though. I think the shopkeepers will be disappointed if you do not haggle!

If you visit Karachi and dont visit Zainab Market, it means you have missed an oppurtunity of buying good quality of clothings in very cheap prices. Whenever I visit Karachi, I bring back bags full of clothings for my kids.

If you want to get down and dirty with your shopping experience, and get bargain prices while you're at it, this is the place to go. The first floor is great for leather goods, some of them even accept foreign currency, but you won't get the local price for it. Best to have a local person with you when you... More

Cannot say enough about Zainab Market. Any trip to Karachi is not complete unless you venture out into this maze of hundreds of small shops lined with EVERYTHING you can imagine, and at unbelievable prices. Just be ready to haggle, and haggle hard - that's part of the fun! Other than the usual clothes, and leather items, they also have... More
