Karachi, located on the coast of the Arabian Sea, is the financial and commercial centre of the nation, as well as its largest port.

Karachi is different from the rest of Pakistan in the same way that New York is different from the rest of the United States.

Public building projects, such as Frere Hall and the Empress Market were undertaken.

In 1876, Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, was born in the city.

West Karachi also has many beaches and islands, while Central district is primarily a middle-class area, it developed immediately after Pakistan's independence, due to a wave of immigration.

Many of these migrants were refugees from the partition.

As a result, the Pakistani army was deployed to restore peace in the city.

Located on the coast, Karachi has a relatively mild climate with low levels of rainfall of approximately 250 mm (10 inches) each year, the bulk of which occurs during the July-August monsoon season. 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.

Large numbers of non-Muslim religious communities are settled 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.

Tourists and expatriates usually visit Karachi in these months.
