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 Yemen. They wrote...

"Expatriates in Yemen often find the local culture to be quite challenging due to its conservative nature. Many aspects of the culture, such as the dress code, are strictly enforced and can be difficult for expats to adjust to. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for expats, as Arabic is the official language of Yemen and English is not widely spoken. Furthermore, the local customs and traditions can be difficult to understand and adhere to, as they are quite different from those of other countries. Finally, the lack of infrastructure and resources can be a challenge for expats, as it can be difficult to find basic amenities and services," remarked another expat who made the move to Yemen.

"The most challenging is the pace of doing things, but it's always the case when u travel from even one city to the other! You get use to it and start relaxing instead of being angry and upset," explained one expat living in Sana'a, Yemen.
