Summary: Pros and Cons of Living in Algeria. Expats, Retirees and Digital Nomads talk about the pros and cons of living in Algeria

What do expats in Algeria appreciate most about the local culture?

"Weather is great ... You can live and eat very well in Algeria if you have your own home and a job. It's a beautiful country and there are some amazing places to visit," remarked another expat in Algiers.

"Family stick together strongly, and acceptance here is high between family members. Doesn't matter how troublemaker you are, or how bad is your personality, or how strange is your idea, your family especially parents will always love you, accept you, and support you unconditionally," explained one expat living in Annaba.

"I love the people, my husband's family that is. They are warm, generous and wonderful. I love their food, couscous and Arabic food," said another expat in Algiers.

"Learning that I am so lucky to have the things I have. Not wasting food. Being kinder to people and not being so selfish. Taking on board that in society women and men each have a role and this is very important for marriage ( i was such an independant feminist in the past...)," added another person living in Algiers.

"Well after working for the British Government for 15 years being able to sit back and enjoy life now with my children is great. I can work if I want to but have decided to be a housewife instead - something that I would never have done while living in London," explained one expat living in Algiers.
