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 Whitehouse. They wrote...

"Expats in Whitehouse may find the laid-back, relaxed pace of life, known as "Jamaican time", challenging, especially if they are used to a more fast-paced, punctual lifestyle. The local dialect, Patois, can also be difficult to understand for those not familiar with it, making communication a challenge. The high levels of poverty and crime in certain areas can be confronting and difficult to navigate. Additionally, the cultural emphasis on community and family might be overwhelming for those used to a more individualistic society. Lastly, adapting to the local cuisine, which is heavily based on spices and flavors not common in Western diets, can also be a challenge for some expats," remarked another expat in Whitehouse, Jamaica.
