What do expats find most challenging?

Answer this Question

We asked expats and digital nomads what they find the most challenging about the local culture in Basel. They wrote...

"Expats in Basel often find the local culture to be quite different from what they are used to. The language barrier can be a challenge, as Swiss German is the primary language spoken in Basel. Additionally, the Swiss culture is known for its formality and politeness, which can be difficult for expats to adjust to. Furthermore, the Swiss are known for their punctuality and precision, which can be difficult for expats to keep up with. Finally, the cost of living in Basel is quite high, which can be a challenge for expats who are not used to such prices," explained one expat living in Basel, Switzerland.
