On the east coast of Spain, Valencia, a sprawling, vibrant and international city, has something to offer a variety of tastes. It is important to research the different areas carefully as there is a distinct flavour to each one; the lively nightlife of Ruzafa contrasts with the sedate and quiet family feel of La Canyada, for example.

I would advise anyone moving to Valencia to carry out some research in relation to jobs. stay in different parts of the city to see which area they would most like I would encourage them to learn Spanish to be able to communicate with the locals.

Valencia has everything you could desire from a Spanish city: stunning architecture, fantastic cuisine, beaches, mountains, monuments and excellent local wines. The Fallas festival is unique and internationally renowned and the people are, typically Spanish. One distinct feature is the Turia river park. Once the city’s main river, it was drained in 1957 after a devastating flood.
