By Train, Lahore

If you want to travel from Lahore to Karachi or vice versa by train then Karakoram Express & KARACHI EXPRESS are relatively fast & comfortable than others. They only stops on 6 stations in between Lahore-Karachi. All rail cars are new, imported from China. Seats are comfortable. 
It is recommended to carry Food/Water with you because food at stations is not good.
Train also has a dining car. They offer a dinner tray for Rs. 100/- which is sufficient for a person. It is better than the food stuff purchased from hawkers at station.
