We asked people living in Bahamas to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"Brought in: good broom, more storage boxes, kitchen ustensiles Left home: antique furniture, Lamps, kitchen appliance with european voltage," remarked another expat who made the move to Nassau, Bahamas.

"Only needed electronics (PC or Mac etc) and especially cables; what you can pack in checked luggage; most homes for rent/lease are furnished; would recommend purchasing just low cost housewares here (cheap plastic knockoffs) but any appliance (Air Fryer; etc) you should bring as it will cost double here to purchase plus VAT tax," explained one expat living in Bahamas.
