What to Expect From Life in Lagos
The landscape in Lagos offers expats a blend of cosmopolitan skylines and traditionally African local markets. While Lagos expats need to have their wits about them if they want to stay safe, the city is constantly under development and growing more secure each day. Opportunities to eat out are vast, including sushi in Izanagi and excellent views at La Veranda. While you may find that Lagos' real estate market is difficult to navigate from outside the country, you'll also gain access to excellent working opportunities. Those who want to make their riches from the oil sector can do so, as well as in the banking, telecommunications, and manufacturing sectors. Once you've secured your job, look towards hospitals like Paelon Memorial Clinic for excellent healthcare and schools like Avi Cenna International School for a first-rate education.
