Sadarghat is one of the busiest and most hectic ports I’ve experienced. Great to see the rusted old ships, even allowed to walk through them. Enjoyed a river taxi across and got to see ship building. Lots of smells and sounds to take in.

Even if you don't have to catch a launch to somewhere; this place is worth visiting - just to get an idea how busy life can be. And if you are really adventurous, go during Eid season :)
