What are the particular advantages of living in this city?

Easy city, friendly people, great weather. - Oct 16, 2016
The weather is beautiful and sunny all year, even in rainy season you get plenty of blue sky days. It's fun to spend time at Lake Malawi, easy to go on safari and hike Mt Mulanje. Camping, biking and other outdoor activities are common. Malawians are friendly and positive, and the country has a slow, laid back vibe. - Aug 2, 2015
The friendly, easy going attitude of Malawians as well as the adventure travel opportunties. The lake is the go-to get away--only 1 hour and 15 minutes from our house. Trips to Malawi's "best national park"--a common cliche used for South Luangwa National Park in Zambia--are world class and unforgettable. Travel to Zomba, Cape MacClear, Ntchisi, Chinteche, Dzalanyma, ant the Nyika Plateau make this place unique. Travel times are long tough so plan to take extra time. - Sep 17, 2013
Malawian people are warm and friendly, there are a lot of great places to go on the lake, the weather is wonderful, it's pretty close to some really nice game viewing, and it has a nice, slow atmosphere for an African capital city. - Sep 26, 2012
