Karachi is Pakistan's most populated city and is the capital of Sindh. With over 11.6 million residents in its vast area, Karachi also charts as the world's second most populated city[1]. Though heavy population has brought with it a certain element of chaos, people from Karachi are generally very helpful and generous in nature.

Weather

Karachi's weather ranges from mild winters (13 °C to 25 °C) to hot summers (28 °C to 40 °C). As it is located by the coast, the humidity is high. By contrast, precipitation tends to be quite low, though the monsoon season in July-August sees heavier rainfall.

Getting there

You can travel to Karachi by mini bus, train and cars. The traffic of Karachi is very unsystematic.

By Train

Since February 2006, a train travels between the Indian city of Jodhpur in Rajasthan and Karachi. It's the first international train travelling directly between the two countries since 1965. The Thar Express leaves Karachi at 11:00pm on Fridays, taking almost 24 hours before arriving in Jodhpur on Saturday evening. In the opposite direction, trains leave and arrive on approximately the same time on the same days taking 24 hours as well.
