do people in Britain generally think that they live in one of the BEST places in the world to live?

please explain why and how this is ..and do you think many around the world agree,,,by how many people seek to live in Britain from eastern Europe, Asia , africa ,,even AMERICA..etc?

please xplain what it is (Besides just the government aid, as many could live okay in their own countries but desire for some reason the culture of Britain)…?

thanks for your answers!

I think Britain is a good place to live, I think people hating on Britain are negative people and would probably not be happy anywhere in the world. The grass is not always greener somewhere else.

Which is the best country in Europe to live?

I don’t want to live in America when i’m an adult. What country is the best? Give reasons/examples plz. Also: I don’t want a lecture on why I should stay. I dint want to. Thx :)

There is no single country that’s best for everyone. It really depends on your specific interests, language skills, climactic preferences. The various countries and regions have their own character and all of them can be interesting.

I’ve been living in Italy for the last 11 years and love it here. Italy has wonderful art, architecture, historical sites, museums, galleries and shopping. There is spectacular scenery in many places with some great beaches. Boating, fishing, sports and other activities are available. There are a huge number of fascinating local festivals both large and small which often feature local foods and traditions. Obviously, the food here is terrific. There are lots of concerts and exhibitions. In the summers in the town where I live, there are events three or four nights a week in the piazza. The best part of being here is the people.

It isn’t easy to move here though. You first need to get a visa that allows you to live and work here. http://www.esteri.it/visti/home_eng.asp . You might consider a university in Europe or at least a program where you can spend a semester or year here to see what it’s really like. that would also give you an opportunity to work on your language skills and to make contacts. Right now, the economy is very difficult in most places. there are not many available jobs. Hopefully, that will improve by the time you’re ready.

What is a good country for an American to live/retire in?

I simply want to live someplace cheap. I know I can do this in America to a pretty significant extent but I would simply like to live abroad.

I have heard and read stories of Thailand, Philippines, DR, etc. "$300/mo includes a nice furnished apartment, a houskeeper who cooks, etc etc etc." Sounds great.

Here’s what I’d like:

-Relatively safe. I don’t need it to be like the Midwest burbs in the 50’s, I don’t want to get jacked by gangs of gun-toting kids every time I go out.
-Stable high-speed internet. DSL+ speeds. I don’t mind 10 minutes of downtime a week, but my income depends on me to be on 8+ hours a day. Losing my connection often would cost me a lot. Same goes for power of course.
-Reasonable outings. A couple of restaurants that aren’t completely disgusting would be fine. A movie theater would be great even if the big feature films are a month behind the US. My significant entertainment needs can come from taking vacations to the US or even weekends to the more touristy towns.

What I don’t care about:

-Buying a home. Mansions for $30K? Ok, maybe but not a priority. I’m happy to rent for the rest of my life.
-Citizenship. I can stay an American, go dual or become a legal citizen. It doesn’t matter to me.
-Language. I’ll learn whatever I need to even if it is on a basic conversational level.
-The beach/major tourist area. That would be great but if it means paying the same prices that I would in the burbs of metropolitan areas of California then the point is defeated.

Links, real insight, etc would be amazing. I always pick a best answer. Thanks in advance.

Oh, just go to the Philippines. The cost of living is cheap there plus everyone speaks English. Even if you live in the major cities — Makati, Manila, QC, Pasig, or even Taguig — you can rent places there for cheap. Plus, there’s always great restos around whatever cuisine you like.

What would be the best foreign country to live in and be rich living off the cheapest amount of american money?

What would be the best foreign country to live in and be rich living off the cheapest amount of american money? if I built a small business here that could generate money… where would I live the best at in another land?

Bulgaria, a welcoming country, with lots of opportunities, nice people, good food, real winters and real summers, mountains and seacoast and all in between. Life (food/drinks etc.) is cheap and you can rent or buy a place cheaply if you know where to look. Part of the EU.
