What do people like (and dislike) about Wellington?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Wellington, they replied...

"Expats and digital nomads living in Wellington, often appreciate the city's stunning natural beauty, with its picturesque harbor, surrounding hills, and easy access to outdoor activities such as hiking and mountain biking. They also enjoy the vibrant arts and culture scene, which includes numerous galleries, museums, and festivals. The city's compact size and walkability make it easy to explore, and the public transportation system is efficient and reliable. Wellington is known for its friendly and welcoming locals, making it easy for expats and digital nomads to feel at home and make new friends. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the cost of living in Wellington to be relatively high, particularly when it comes to housing and dining out. The city's infamous wind and unpredictable weather can also be a downside for some, as it can make outdoor activities and commuting less enjoyable at times. Additionally, while the job market in Wellington is generally strong, it can be competitive, and some expats may struggle to find work in their desired field. Finally, the city's remote location can make it difficult and expensive to travel internationally, which may be a drawback for digital nomads who value easy access to other countries and cultures," said another expat in Wellington, New Zealand.
