If you’re planning to leave your hometown and find your luck somewhere else then you should check this list.
What countries are best to live in if you want to live abroad? 

1. Australia
This country has it all. Beaches, Rain forest, Cities and even a Desert. Besides that, the temperature is always good and the Aussi life is easy to adapt to. 4 out of 5 expats say that it’s easy to become acquaint to the Aussi life. No health issues, good food (a lot of choice!) and a buzzing nightlife is what makes this country so popular to live in. Besides that, Australia is one of the safest countries to live in because of their water tight immigration rules. 
The only downside is, that it’s very difficult to get a permanent visa. In order to get one, you need a company by your side, an Australian husband or next of kin family. But who are we to stop you? You can always visit Australia on a working holiday visa or as a student. Check here for more tips and stories about Australia.

2. Ecuador
This country has been on top of the list for the last 2 years (according to Forbes) and we understand why.
Low cost of living combined with strong real estate values, makes this place very attractive to live. Ecuador has lovely scenery, secluded beaches and lovely temperatures. The food is amazing and even at a high class restaurant you won’t pay more than 50 euro’s for 2 people. (drinks included!)

3. Denmark
Crazy but it has zero crime rates, murder, no corruption, and stability in economic growth, quality life, etc. All these things made it as one of the best, happiest and safest countries to live in the world. Nearly 18 weeks of paid leave is given to mothers and 79 percent of women are working which is comparatively higher than other countries. People in this country are more concerned about their environment and they follow excellent health care system. Let’s move to Denmark!

4. Sweden
Another Scandinavian country. This time it’s Sweden.  They just introduced a 6 hour working day so if that doesn’t already makes a person happy, you should read on. They give you 16 months of to spent that time with your newborn baby, so it is the best place for women where they get safety and they can see their child grown up. Besides this, you can breath fresh air and visit amazing beautiful places.


5. The Netherlands
Now, I know what you’re thinking but no, we didn’t just add our homeland onto this list for no reason. Our education and healthcare is top notch and the Dutch enjoy the ultimate freedom of speech. You can bring your lovely dog pretty much everywhere and everybody speaks English. If you ever decide to move over to The Netherlands, drop us a line for some inside tips! 🙂

    Sorry but i have to say to Nr.5 it is not true. The Netherlands is not a place you want to move too right now. Since the change of the Gulden to the Euro Netherlands is not the country it was. There is no GOOD health care System half of the people can not effort to pay 150 euro extra per Month on health care and when you go top the buy meds you still have to pay for them. Here if you are middle class you can barley make it with one salaries you need 2 income to have a house a Car and health care and food on the table without a headache and once a month you an go to dinner. Life is very hard if you are Middl-class. I can say i would love to move away from here back home or to an other country but the Netherlands had its best years, now is no fun living here anymore to expensive.

      Sorry Martina, but compered to almost every country in the world we are still topnotch. Allot of Dutch people usually think that the Netherlands is a hard place to live in, but compared to nearly every wealthy country around us our average wealth is still higher. If The picture your are painting would be applied to other countries, like: Belgium, France, England or Germany for example. Then people would have even less when they are considered midclass of under midclass.

    My choice for sure is to have a luck for leaving Amsterdam…is the climate..the people..the respect of the humanity..i don’t think better for me a better place to live… uppon my country which i love but make’s me unhappy because of no opportunities into work.

    To sumarise my thought , if i could ensure a job in Netherlands..i will possibly risk it.Why not..i have nothing to loose…

    Thank you Elke.

    Best Wishes-Love-Peace.

  3. Wow, all of these places sound amazing to live in! We moved to South Korea to teach ESL and have had a blast, but we are looking to try to live somewhere else! Any of these places would work for us! Thanks for sharing!

    How cool!! I didnt know that Denmark is that cool!, although if I could choose I dont know why I am more Sweden oriented! at the moment I am in Vienna, so the thought to learn another language after I am still struggling with german, it makes me scared! but who knows!

    cool Post!

  5. Leuk lijstje! Nederland is inderdaad wel verbazend. Ikzelf ben geëmigreerd uit Nederland, voor de liefde, niet omdat ik het er verschrikkelijk vond. Nu ik zie hoe het er in een ander land aan toe gaat zie ik dat Nederland echt niet perfect is. Colombia, waar ik nu woon, ook niet, maar er zijn een hoop dingen die ik heel leuk vind hier. Ik denk dat Colombia redelijk vergelijkbaar is met Ecuador. Het eten hier is ook echt heel goed, de service perfect (veel beter dan in NL!) en je betaalt echt heel weinig. Voor 50 euro kunnen we in een duur restaurant uiteten. Maar zelfs voor 2 euro heb je een heerlijke maaltijd. In Nederland at ik nooit zo vaak buiten de deur, veel te duur en je weet nooit of het een goed restaurant is. Hier eten we té vaak buiten de deur haha 😛
