Is this a good city for single people? For couples? For families? Why or why not?

Singles and couples. Most of the expats in Bangui are single, so you can meet other people outside your own embassy if you are proactive. - Oct 5, 2017
I know plenty of people who came single and left either engaged or in a serious relationship. I've found singles and couples tend to do a bit better than those with kids. The concerns over education, healthcare and social activities for families can be difficult. The singles scene is mostly drinking beer, eating out, or hosting house parties. - Jan 2, 2012
