Algiers - Post Report Question and Answers

What are the particular advantages of living in this city?

Perfect weather; living in a place not many people get to see; kind and welcoming locals. And for me personally (a design-minded person) I have been really inspired by the North African meets European aesthetic of Algiers. Some of the buildings in Centre Ville are jaw-dropping. In need of a paint jobs yes, but the mix of Parisian-style architecture - the tall white apartments with big windows and wrought iron railings on the balconies - and Arab architecture with its domes and inner courtyards and keyhole windows, is so inspiring to me. - Apr 2021

None, you are close to Europe and you can find good deals so any money you saved because there is nothing to do you spend you go to Europe on long weekends. - Oct 2013
