Roaming into a different city of a different country, is like exploring the journey of an unseen joy or threat. Let’s stick with Karachi only, the city where there is too much to shop, squander, invest and spend. But if you keep only foreign currency with you, it will not heal the shopkeeper’s demand of asking local currency.
If you want to play safe side while shopping or roaming in Karachi then the first thing you need to do, is to rush to the money exchanger and get some local currency. As you know Rupee is the currency of Pakistan, you need to change the foreign currency into Rupee by keeping the rate difference in your mind.
In some cases, they might ask you to show your passport, otherwise no need. You can easily find ATM at different places in Karachi, so keeping your credit card with you, will not be a bad idea. But some cash in hand, is also necessary.
Here are few money exchangers in Karachi to convert foreign currency. If you are going then take a look.
