While our moving plans are temporarily suspended, we still dream of relocating in the future. Life has stopped for now, but things will soon be back to normal or the ‘new normal’. When we can relocate abroad, here are the top 5 ex-pat friendly cities to move to. Pick your choice:
1. Taipei, Taiwan
The Expat Insider Survey by InterNations found Taipei to be the best city to move to for ex-pats, for the second year in a row. The biggest pros for ex-pats here are affordable healthcare, well-connected local transportation, friendly locals and good overall quality of life.
2. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
A city that is very easy to settle in, a majority of the population there speaks English that makes communication easy for most. The cost of living is affordable and job satisfaction is high. Expats easily feel at home here.
3. Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
With a very strong ex-pat community, the Ho Chi Mind City in Vietnam is vibrant. It offers good food, it has some of the best schools, the language is easy to learn and the banking system is expat-friendly.

4. Lisbon, Portugal
One of the cheapest countries in Western Europe, Portugal is amazing for ex-pats and tourists alike. Lisbon in Portugal is known for its great food, great weather, welcoming locals and a versatile landscape. It’s affordable to live in and is a good base to travel to the rest of the world as it is somewhat in the middle of everything.
