Karachi is located on the coast of the Arabian Sea. It is the financial and commercial center of the nation, as well as it is largest port. It is different from the rest of Pakistan in the same way that New York is different from the rest of the United States. The pace of life is more fast, and social attitudes are far more liberal than elsewhere in Pakistan. Locals call it: the City of Lights, the City of The Quaid, and the City that Never Sleeps. The city credits its growth to the mixed populations of economic and political migrants along with refugees from different national, provincial, linguistic and religious origins, who generally come to the city to settle permanently. Almost 98% of the population understands the Urdu language.
Karachi is the most diverse and cosmopolitan city in Sindh and may offer a hint as to the future direction of modern life in Pakistan. In many ways, it can be compared to New York where the pace of life is more hurried and the time is money. Large numbers of non-Muslim religious communities are living in Karachi compared to other Pakistan cities: Hindus, Christians, Parsis, Sikhs, Bahai, Jews, Buddhists as well as Zoroastrians. Karachi’s inhabitants, locally known as Karachiites, are a cosmopolitan population composed of many ethno-linguistic groups from all parts of Pakistan, as well as migrants from several different countries and regions including India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Myanmar, China and Uganda, making the city’s population a diverse melting pot.
Karachi has a relatively mild climate with low levels of rainfall each year, the bulk of which occurs during the monsoon season. Winters are mild, and the summers are hot. The city’s proximity to the sea keeps humidity levels at a near-constant high, and cool sea breezes relieve the heat of the summer months. Due to the high temperatures in the summers, winter months are generally the best times to visit. July, December and January have pleasing and cloudy weather when most of the social events, ranging from weddings to charity fund raisers, frequently take place. Tourists and expatriates usually visit in these months. Weather in Karachi is mild and can be as compared to Florida’s weather. The highest ever temperature in Karachi is 47.8°C while the lowest is 0°C.
