Instead of leaving on a whim, check out this article based on the Expat City Ranking survey conducted by Internation. This study gives you some clues to make the best choice for your next place of residence. Several criteria were taken into account such as professional opportunities, cost of living, but also ease of installation. From Barcelona to Taipei, here's where to start your life again in 2020!

Basel, the attractive Switzerland

It is not surprising to find a Swiss city in this ranking as this country exudes happiness: chocolate, cheese and nature, what more could you ask for? Second largest city in German-speaking Switzerland after Zurich, close to the Swiss and German borders, Basel appeals to its inhabitants in particular for its safety, its public transport system and the quality of its environment. A great invitation to come and stroll in the alleys of its historic center and in its many green spaces!

Den haag , the wise Dutchwoman

Administrative capital of the Netherlands, Den haag charms its expatriates with its security on the job market and its environment. The proximity to the beaches and the modernity of its city center (which has sometimes overshadowed its historic center) certainly have something to do with it. On the cultural side, Den haag also has two very beautiful museums: the Mautishuis and the Municipal Museum. The only downside: its somewhat harsh climate.

Zug, the unbeatable Swiss

Again and again, Switzerland seduces its expatriates! Zug, a medieval city in German-speaking Switzerland, according to them offers an unbeatable quality of life. Public transport, the environment and an efficient health system are particularly emphasized. Zug is a dynamic city where you come to visit its charming medieval quarter and discover Swiss art in its Museum of Fine Arts. So, are you interested in Switzerland?

Barcelona, ​​Catalan charm

If you've been to Barcelona before, chances are you've thought about putting your bags there for good! Well, maybe you should have since the expats who live there have lifted the city to seventh place in this ranking! They particularly underline the mildness of its climate, its great dynamism in terms of cultural offerings and the ease of integration into the city. So when are we leaving?

Lisbon, Portuguese sweetness

How not to succumb to Lisbon, to the thousand colors of its landscape and the pastéis de nata of Belém? On a day-to-day basis, expatriates are very satisfied with the welcome they receive from Lisbon, underlining their great sociability. The mild weather is also one of the criteria that makes them particularly happy about their expatriation, and we can understand why! Finally, the remarkable geographical location of the Portuguese capital, a few kilometers from the ocean, was also highlighted.

Montreal, life in Quebec

Multicultural, bilingual, dynamic and open to the world, Montreal seems to have all the qualities! It is for this reason that it is placed fifth in this ranking. According to the Internations survey, expatriates appreciate the working conditions, but also the cost of living in general as well as the many cultural activities that are held in Montreal throughout the year. The only downside: harsh weather to which you have to adapt.

Singapore, business and modernism

Singapore is widely regarded as one of the safest countries in the world, with consistently low crime rates, a transparent legal system, and a reliable police force backed by proactive citizens. Singapore is the financial and trade hub of the countries of ASEAN

Ho Chi Minh City, a popular megalopolis

What was a Khmer fishing village in the 17th century has developed to the point of becoming today an active town in southern Vietnam. The former Saigon is particularly appreciated by its expatriates for its reasonable cost of living, as they underlined in the Internations survey. Among the must-sees in Ho Chi Minh City, its Notre-Dame cathedral and its large central post with the frame designed by Eiffel.

Kuala Lumpur, departure to Malaysia

The sprawling capital of Malaysia delights its expats and therefore ranks second in this Internations poll. Its inhabitants particularly appreciate the ease of settling in the city as expatriates. Among the criteria often praised, the ease with which it is possible to quickly meet new people and form a circle of friends. Respondents are also very satisfied with the cost of living in Kuala Lumpur. The Malaysian capital seems to have it all!

Taipei, the unbeatable

Already ranked number 1 by its expatriates last year in the same Internations survey, Taipei remains in the lead. Expats living in Taipei emphasize the quality of its urban environment, efficient public transport and measured cost of living. Expats regret, however, the great difficulty in learning the local language. Taipei is therefore the city where expats feel best. What about you?
