All thanks to my dad’s transferable jobs which allowed me to live in multiple cities. So I am experienced enough to write something about this topic without consulting to any other journal. There are different pros and cons of living in metro vs tier 2 cities. We will go through all these points one by one.
But before that I want to tell you that this is totally based on my experiences, don’t compare it with any particular city or person.
Most of the population in the metro cities is from small towns. So what makes the difference between a small one and a big one.
Advantages of Non Metro City
Due to lack of industrial area small cities never face the problem of pollution, so always the best place to live from a health perspective.
Population is always less in comparison to a metro city so it won’t face a problem arising out of a huge population.
Less Cost of Living Basic needs are always cheaper in non metro cities. You can find some luxurious items costlier, but that is something you can live without. If you have enough money you can purchase it outside your city.
More Social Interaction
In small cities, people are more interacted with one another due to the less diverse nature and community.
Small cities are always more peaceful than metro city. Population is one of the main reasons. And it’s easy to maintain law and order with small populations.
Advantages of Metro City
