Wonderful, just great to live here now. Should have left the USA much earlier.

There was a lot of road works beginning of this year. New sewerage everywere and no more funny smells.

I love how they revamped the beaches, looks much better this way.

Valencia is a very nice town, come over and see for yourself why it is the expat's favorite for 2023.

The new build appartments are build to very high standards. The city center had a bick revamp and is much safer to drive now, new roundabouts and everything looks more clean too.

It looks like some people prefer keeping all in original state without renovation and maintenance.

That's not how it works if you want a safe and clean city. It is much better now.

Real estate speculators have ruined this city through massive construction of vast housing complexes around the center. At the same time the city center is falling to pieces.
The funny Calatrava project is not enough to compensate for this lack of integration.
I found Valencia really ugly.

Valencia is such a great city, overall I would just call it a happy city. Yes, the economy is not the best in the world obviously but I have lived to so many cities in the UK and NONE compare even slightly, they are all just so sad compared to sunny, cheerful valencia

Valencia is a nice city for visiting a few days but not for
living... Ce city is not small and metro not good (slow) .. the beach close of the city are ugly ... people quite unfriendly sometimes agressive specially in some bars, bank or administrations... The cost of life is very expensive for the quality of service, rent o transportation.. I do not recommend at all

I don't know why the health care index is so high, because on private system they have young and unexperienced doctors, but on the other hand they have good doctors on public system but in order to get an appointment you have to wait almost one year (no joking), I guess the public system works fine if you had a serious accident or your health is in critical condition. The pollution is quite high and the city is not clean. During the summer, the center of Valencia is smelling horrible. Weather is the best thing here and indeed the city is safe, but not when you are in traffic :D, the people are either very slow or aggressive and they do a lot of accidents. Purchasing power index is wrong, the salaries are very low and cost of living increased a lot in the last 2-3 years.
