    I wish I'd found InterNations sooner: It would have made my first few month as an expat in London much less overwhelming.

What Is Living in Manchester Like for Expats?

Manchester, voted the Most Livable City in the UK 2015, is a lively and popular city attracting expats from all over the world. It's not difficult to see why, with an excellent shopping scene, including the world-famous Trafford Centre, you will never struggle to find what you are looking for. Or maybe sports is more your thing; with the British Football Museum and Old Trafford, home of international superstar team Manchester United, weekends will never be the same again. You can also take advantage of Manchester's lively nightlife scene to suit all tastes. However, it's not all play. Manchester is a hub for all sectors of business in the UK. This is a great option for high-flying career types, and there is the added bonus of a relatively low cost of living compared to other European cities.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Moscow or Paris, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.
