The beautiful and enigmatic country of Pakistan is as varied in its landscape as it is in its peoples and cultures. Overwhelmingly however, Pakistan is a conservative Muslim country, although the largest city and once capital Karachi is more liberal and the obvious port of call for tourists. Pakistan enjoys a number of key annual events in addition to the major Islamic holidays, including the Kara Film Festival and the Sindh Sea Festival events in Karachi, as well as Independence Day And Pakistan Day, which are celebrated all over the country.
