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 Ghana. They wrote...

"Expats in Ghana often find the local culture to be quite different from what they are used to. Many find the language barrier to be a challenge, as English is not widely spoken outside of the major cities. Additionally, the local customs and traditions can be difficult to understand and navigate. Expats may also find the pace of life to be slower than what they are used to, as well as the lack of modern amenities and infrastructure. Finally, the hot and humid climate can be difficult to adjust to," said another expat in Ghana.

"People here only tell you what you want to hear not the real situation - leading to not being able to trust anyone," wrote a member who made the move to Accra, Ghana.
