Namaste, and a very warm welcome to the Pune expat network here at InterNations. Whether you're about to arrive or you're a fresh face in the area, our members at InterNations are here to make your integration easier. As individuals who have been through the relocation process themselves, they can answer some of the questions you may have about making the move. These could include, "will I have to learn a new language?" and "what is the shopping like in Pune?". You'll soon find that it's possible to get by with English, but learning Hindi is helpful, and that Pune is brimming with independent stores offering goods you'll never access at home.
With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Jeddah or Riyadh.
Attend our monthly events and activities for Pune expatriates to get to know like-minded expatriates in real life.
Get trustworthy advice and local insights from fellow members in our Pune expat forums.
As a city that's full to the brim with millions of people and culture spanning across thousands of years, Pune is somehow peaceful and chaotic all at once. While it does take some time to get used to the road networks, life in Pune has multiple advantages. The shops, schools, gyms, and restaurants are all convenient, which means you can continue with your usual routine. For those coming here from the West, the Mercedes Benz and Symbiosis International Schools are winning choices. If you're looking for a first-class dining experience, you can't go far wrong with Feast, or you can head over to Seasonal Tastes for a buffet like no other. If you don't feel like trying Pune's roads for yourself, rickshaws are always an option, and are incredibly safe.
