For many of us, the allure of moving from our home country to somewhere entirely new is too much to resist. Whether we want a better lifestyle, warmer weather or more appealing job opportunities – there’s always something that holds an appeal. But what places are the best for expats? Let’s take a look.

Which Cities are the Best for Expats?

The world is a much smaller place than it used to be, and opportunities for moving around are much more prominent than they used to be. With this in mind, when choosing the city that’s right for you when looking to move abroad, research is essential. We’ve put together a list of some of the most popular expat destinations to save you the trouble.

London

London is a beautiful city, steeped in history and full to bursting with amazing opportunities for people from all walks of life. Removed from Europe it may be, but fully connected it most definitely is. Expat Arrivals have put together some invaluable information on moving to London in their article, but here are some great reasons why London is perfect for expats.

  • London is massively multicultural. No matter where you go, you’ll find something new and exciting to learn and see
  • Opportunity is by no means in short supply in the Big Smoke; as long as you’re willing to work hard, you’ll get to where you want to be
  • The city is surrounded by beautiful countryside in its neighbouring counties. Essex, Hertfordshire and Surrey are all absolutely beautiful and well worth a visit on a day off.

Dubai

Like London, Dubai is a city of opportunity. It’s still very much up-and-coming in terms of being a fantastic expat destination, but certain areas of the city are absolutely thriving with those who have moved for a taste of the luxury life that Dubai offers, whereas other areas allow you to immerse yourself in the city’s culture as it has always been. Some compelling reasons to consider Dubai for your new home are:

  • Gorgeous city, surrounded by beautiful landscape
  • A wonderful luxury lifestyle that many can only dream of
  • Opportunity for interaction with fellow expats on a huge scale, without losing any of the city’s identity

Los Angeles

Could we really have put together a list like this without mentioning the city of angels? More and more people are making the move to this beautiful Californian city every year; dreaming of a laid back lifestyle surrounded by the stars, and working hard to make this a reality. Although LA is a hotspot for the rich and famous, the beaches, shopping opportunities and industry make the city an attractive destination for those looking to experience something new.
