We asked expats and digital nomads what they appreciate the most about the local culture in Abidjan. They wrote...

"Expatriates in Abidjan appreciate the city’s unique mix of cultures, with African, European, and Middle Eastern influences creating a vibrant and dynamic atmosphere. The spirit of tolerance and respect for others is one of the most appreciated traits of Abidjan culture, along with the general sense of hospitality. Expats also appreciate the wide variety of entertainment options, from the vibrant nightlife to the numerous art galleries, concerts, and festivals. Finally, the delicious cuisine of Abidjan is another great aspect of the local culture that expats enjoy," remarked another expat who made the move to Abidjan, Ivory Coast.

"The people in general are actually quite friendly - but many will see foreigners as only a way to make cash and will take advantage of you. But if you are lucky enough to find some that are genuinely kind, they will do anything for you and will treat you like family," explained one expat living in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.
