Gwadar is famous for 3-things: fishing village, 5-star hotel on the hammerhead, and the famous Gwadar port, which was opened in 2007 by General President Chief Executive Pervez Musharraf. .
Gwadar port was â€œfinallyâ€ built by the assistance of China. It is situated on a 3 very important cross-road: oil rich Middle East, Central Asian Countries, and Pakistan. The plan for this port was to facilitate trade and accessibility to Central Asian countries via Afghanistan. But situation in Afghanistan has resulted in this plan not materializing.
A good vantage point is to view this port is from the Pearl Continental Hotel which is situated on top of the hammerhead. PC can arrange a tour of the port if one wants to go and see it.
