Have you ever found yourself stuck at Karachi Airport for reasons you cannot fathom? If yes, we know how you felt. But the next time it happens and it most probably will we want to make sure you dont freak out.
There are plenty of things you can do here. Jovago Pakistan has come up with nine ways to pass the time while youre waiting for your flight at the Karachi Jinnah International Airport!
1. Explore all the different kinds of people around you…

Karachi airport is the ideal place to explore the diversity in the country. From the wadera ka beta who cant visit the washroom without a guard following him, to families who think the airport is a picnic spot; from the newlyweds who make sure everyone can see their newly found love and to families with children who just wouldnt stop wailing they will all be sitting around you.
2. Log onto the free Wi-Fi and update your Facebook status…
And keep updating every minute until your plane takes off
Keep updating until the flight attendant warns you to turn your phone off. And hey while youre at it, you can also check out the best accommodation or hotel rates in Lahore, right?
3. Take lots of selfies and weird pictures…

Whether its the picture of an old PIA plane or selfies with different poses and styles, you can play with your camera as much as you want. Brush up your photographic skills. And when sharing them on Instagram, dont forget to tag #KarachiAirport.
4. Get something to eat…

And then share them on Instagram. With McDonalds and Butlers Chocolate Cafe, you can never go hungry when you are stuck at Karachi Airport.
5. Take a break and sit back and relax in the free air-conditioning.
Summers are hot in Karachi. So, instead of baking somewhere out in the city, isnt it better to stay at the airport and enjoy free air conditioning?
6. Just pick up that book you have long forgotten about

Your stay will be much longer so, just pick up a book and read it. If you dont have a book with you, there are book stalls at the airport that make sure you dont get bored.
Or maybe you planned ahead, and have been waiting for this quiet moment for weeks. Youve got three hours to make a connection, and twenty chapters left. The odds are in your favor.
7. Check out the shops at duty-free and hunt for the perfect antique piece to make your stay more memorable
Go window shopping and pretend you are interested in things you wouldnt have cared about before.
8. Play with your hairstyle

You have got plenty of time to check how you would look with different hairstyles. Film a documentary about the different hairstyles that look good.
9. And hey, why dont you just take a nap?
This is the time to cure your dark circles and catch up on all your sleep you have missed.
Have a good time! And while you are here, daydream about your perfect vacation. If you have got Jovago with you, this will be last time you will get stuck. Give yourself a break and plan your travel with Jovago.
