What are the pros and cons of living in Haifa?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Haifa responded:

"Expats and digital nomads living in Haifa, often like the city's beautiful natural surroundings, including the stunning Baha'i Gardens and the nearby beaches. They appreciate the diverse and multicultural atmosphere, with a mix of Jewish, Arab, and Christian communities coexisting peacefully. The city offers a relatively lower cost of living compared to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem, making it more affordable for expats and digital nomads. Haifa is also known for its vibrant arts and culture scene, with numerous museums, galleries, and events throughout the year. On the other hand, expats and digital nomads may dislike the limited public transportation options, especially on weekends when buses and trains do not operate due to the Sabbath. The job market in Haifa can be challenging for foreigners, particularly for those who do not speak Hebrew. Additionally, the city's nightlife and entertainment options may not be as extensive as those in larger cities like Tel Aviv. Some expats and digital nomads may also find it difficult to navigate the bureaucracy and paperwork involved in obtaining visas, work permits, and other necessary documentation," explained one expat in Haifa.
