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 Protaras. They wrote...

"Expats in Protaras often find the language barrier to be the most challenging aspect of the local culture, as Greek and Turkish are the main languages spoken and not everyone speaks English. The slower pace of life can also be a challenge for those used to a faster, more hectic lifestyle. The Cypriot concept of time, which is more relaxed and less punctual than in many Western countries, can be difficult to adjust to. Additionally, the bureaucracy can be overwhelming for some, as dealing with government offices and paperwork can be time-consuming and complicated. Lastly, the high summer temperatures can be hard to cope with for those not used to Mediterranean climates," said a member in Protaras, Cyprus.
