I come to you for information about the cost of living, if it is complicated to settle there, the different neighborhoods. I would also like to know if there are a large number of expatriates, how foreigners are welcomed.
You can also tell me if you think it is a good idea to move here for work and if people have experienced the same thing.
I thank you for your help and do not hesitate to provide me with as much information as possible...
Have a nice day
Simple curiosity: where are you from?
Because what I mean is that if you managed to integrate in China, you will have no problem in Australia
I think you are aware of the good reputation of Australian cities as regards standard of living. I think you should expect quite a higher cost of living, as you can guess. But overall life there is pretty amazing.
There are a lot of expatriates. Personally, I'm French-Italian and there is a strong community of both French and Italian people.
As regards the cost of living, I'm not sure I can understand... It depends on how much money you make, how you spend it, how often you like to go out, etc.
Do you already have a clear idea of when you will be there?
I'm not sure when I'll be in Sydney, as I'm currently in Bangkok for a while. But we could even grab a beer together when you get there if you want
Let me know
Feel free to ask for further information. I will, I mean WE will try to help you as much as we can
