There are expatriate communities all over the world. These are cities or towns where groups of expats all decide to live. A shared culture often bring people together and an expat community offers good comradery and a sense of understanding. On the other hand, it makes it easier to keep oneself apart from the local community and all that it has to offer. When choosing a place to live abroad, one of the important choices to make is whether or not to live in an expat community. There is no right or wrong way, but the choice you make will certainly impact the type of experience you have.
