Abidjan - Post Report Question and Answers

Knowing what you know now, would you still move to this city?

Yes. This has been a fantastic experience for our family, and I would come back. - Mar 2021

Well, due to Covid, probably not, but otherwise I would have yes. - May 2020

Short answer is yes, longer answer is no.... There is nothing fantastic about Abidjan, however for a Subsaharan West African post it really wasn't that bad. But, I would never go back. - Feb 2020

I am not sure. It was hard on my health with all of the pollution. If that were not an issue, I would move back. - Mar 2017

Absolutely, and things are improving here every day. I'm just happy that I take an international trip every few months to keep it from getting overwhelming. - Aug 2015

Yes, but with a big grain of salt. Abidjan is vibrant, and it has an active nightlife. But it also has crumbling infrastructure, lots of poor people, crime, garbage, and blatant corruption. - Jun 2009

Yes. - Jan 2009
