This VICE Guide to Karachi video is part one of five videos that attempts to explore the issues and landscape of Karachi, Pakistan.

They say New York City is the city that never sleeps but those who haven't heard of Karachi have yet to learn more about this riveting city. VICE founder Suroosh Alvi takes a trip to Karachi and interviews an array of characters ranging from civilians to politicians to "target killers.'"

Karachi is populated with roughly 18 million people and is Pakistan's financial capital and most diverse city. Albeit its beauty, Karachi is also tainted with violence and political instability. VICE takes viewers onto this nerve-racking trip that shows parts of Karachi that's portrayed in violence and corruption. At one point in the video, Alvi takes a ride with a "hit man" or "target killer" and claims the experience as "the scariest thing I’ve done in my 17 years at VICE."
