Habib Bank Plaza isn't a tourist attraction at all, instead is the head office of the Bank. Why would anyone go there? Yes you can see it from outside if you are walking by... but no need to waste your time here.

It is a landmark of Karachi but a rather ugly one. So dont waste your time gawking at it. It used to be the highest building in Pakistan, now taken up by MCB towers. Now, Bahria Icon will take its place !

Leo Daly created an architectural masterpiece in Karachi in 60s and is still one of the most recognizable landmarks of Karachi. I have had the chance to see almost all floors and it is beautifully appointed. They should arrange tourist trips to 23rd floor!

This building very old and has always had a beautiful and functional elevator, which was a rarity. Although only employees are allowed to enter, I had the chance to enter the 'gol(mean 'round' in Urdu) buldiing'.

Not much to look at, from the inside however, it has been redecorated and renovated into a classy office building. Nothing to waste your time on, unless your looking for... More

It was the tallest building in karachi around 10years ago. Suppose to be the landmark of karachi after Quaid Mazar. Nice place to capture some images at night but watch out for security hazards.

Its a 23 storey circular building and very popular among karachites. It is in the business district I I Chundrigar Road. Its observstion deck on top floor gives a good view of city. It is better option then Hill Park observation deck.
