I have hesitated to reply to this as any answer may cause offence so I will try not to-(cause offence)

Don't know what "better" means. Both north and south Cyprus has beautiful parts and not so pretty parts.

The south is more british and most signs are bi-lingual. The infrastructure in the south is more developed (I can hear people not agreeing).

Maybe your question stems from a lack of knowledge about the island's history??? another sticky area!

There have been political problems in Cyprus for decades and "who did what to whom "depends on who you ask.

In 1974 there was an armed conflict, which resulted in the north being isolated.The government and legal system is, as far as I know, only recognised by Turkey. So this, I am assured, is the reason for the price difference.

You really need to read up on the pros and cons before making a big decision like moving. Then, of course, it is personal choice.Which do you prefer? That is all that matters. Maybe if you posted this on the Kyrenia or Nicosia forums, you would get replies from locals.

Good luck.
