World’s Top 30 Best Countries to live in 2017

Is there a heaven on Earth? Probably not but here is the list of countries that are almost as good as that. There are many factors that you will have to consider before deciding to move to a country like the weather, cost of living, the people, if it’s good for kids to be raised in and a million more things like that. And it can get tedious to research all that stuff and make a decision. So we have done all the work for you and here is a concise list.

30. Turkey

Capital: Ankara

Population: 79,814,879

Currency: Turkish Lira (TRY)

Average income per person: $22,021

Average life expectancy: 74.57 years

The Turks are very laid back. If you want a no hurry lifestyle, the Turks won’t disappoint you. And if you are worried about language as a barrier, don’t. English is widely spoken. The weather in Turkey is perfect to match with all your moods. This makes outdoor living very popular in Turkey. The Turks are also known for eating healthy food. Their seafood is freshly caught and so their restaurants serve food that is free from preservatives and the like. And also, since fast food and microwaved meals are very expensive, they tend to cook their food with fresh produce.

29. Indonesia

Capital: Jakarta

Population: 263.51 million

Currency: Indonesian Rupiah

Average income per person: $11,699

Average life expectancy: 72.45 years

Indonesians have their own customs and practices that you may be required to follow. Disrespect to this may be taken as an offense. Which obviously means that the people are conservative. Their dress code is a little modest and so if you are from the west, this might take some getting used to. Despite all this, they have a very vibrant nightlife but you should know where to look for it. People from the west, especially women may need some time to get used to the gender inequality. All stereotypes centered around women can be found here. But you will find that living here will be easy on the pocket. Food is good yet cheap (alcohol excluded). Taxis are ridiculously cheap. Mobile phone and broadband tariffs are very affordable too. Pretty cool right? 

28. Belgium

Capital: Brussels

Population: 11,250,585

Currency: Euro

Average income per person: $44,881

Average life expectancy: 80.88 years

Chocolates. Belgium produces the best chocolates in the world. Belgium has a rich and diverse culture. Owing to this, there are a lot of languages being spoken in Belgium. In a city like Brussels, people will hear colleagues of a company speak in two or three different languages. But this rich culture and tradition is also accompanied by the cultural sensitivity of the locals. One huge advantage is that in a not so big country like Belgium, you can choose to live in the country but don’t have to go through the ordeal of a very long commute to get to work in the city. And you can also save on accommodation by choosing to live in the suburbs. Also the country has excellent public transport infrastructure. Belgium boasts excellent cuisine and dining. Also, they are famous for offering the finest beers in the world. So you will definitely gain a pound or two within a couple weeks of moving here.

27. China

Capital: Beijing

Population: 1,373,541,278

Currency: Yuan

Average income per person: $15,095

Average life expectancy: 75.41 years

The most populated country in the world has held onto that status for a really long time now. Let’s see why. It is a wonderful place to start your career. Talent and hard work is appreciated and recognized. Language may be a barrier but there will be plenty of opportunities for you to learn mandarin everyday and it would do you good to not let go of those opportunities. You also get excellent Chinese, Japanese and Korean food 24*7. The cost of living is not too much and you will benefit if you learn to handle money and finances like the Chinese because a majority of them don’t spend extravagantly. And the general attitude and behavior of the people will take some getting used to, especially if you are from the west. And also you will have to incorporate specific habits to deal with the pollution. 

26. Spain

Capital: Madrid

Population: 46,423,064

Currency: Euro

Average income per person: $36,143

Average life expectancy: 81.57 years

The Spanish have a zest for life and live everyday like it’s their last. Spain also has amazing beaches and scenic beauty. The weather in Spain is romantic throughout the year. The local delicacies are extremely tasty. Their education and health care systems are also good. It is known to be one of the best countries to settle down in after retirement.

Currency: Euro

Average income per person: $47,856

Average life expectancy: 81.39 years

Top-20-countries-to-live

Austria is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It is the land of Mozart. And if you have watched ‘Sound of Music’ you would know what I’m talking about. And this is extremely well maintained. Children in Austria are encouraged to choose their own careers usually in the field of arts and pursue them. Most Austrians speak English. Locals enjoy operas and the Salzburg Festival is most looked forward to. All citizens receive publicly funded health care, which is really good, but they can also purchase a supplementary private health insurance. Austria empowers their women with equality and freedom. Their public transportation system is timely and safe. Austrian wine is also known all over the world. It is also known for its black coffee.

24. Italy

Population: 60,674,003

Currency: Euro

Average income per person: 36,191

Average life expectancy: 82.12 years

best-countries-to-live-in-the-world

Firstly, if you don’t know Italian, learn it. A majority of the Italians are not fluent in English and they are too proud of their language to make an effort to learn it. Their culture and heritage is extremely rich and they have preserved it very well. How would it be to cross the Colosseum on your way to work? The apartments and houses are well maintained and neat. So it should not be that hard to find one that suits your liking. Their education system s very good and public education is free. Their public transportation system is cheap, safe and reliable. They have the most amazing health care system. The country has the best public hospitals and it is all free or ridiculously cheap for EU citizens. And they are the partying kind and have a buzzing nightlife. Italy also has amazing supermarkets. Even the smallest supermarket in the remotest town will have very fresh produce. And if you have watched Julia Roberts’ ‘Eat Pray Love’, I don’t have to tell you about Italian cuisine. But for others – Pizza and Pasta.

23. Finland

Capital: Helsinki

Population: 5,488,543

Currency: Euro

Average income per person: $42,654

Average life expectancy: 80.77 years

best countries to live in the world

The first thing you should probably know is that language is not a barrier. Everyone speaks English. They offer very good quality and affordable education. The standard of living is very high. But you can easily make ends meet if you find yourself a job. And finding one of those is not hard even if you are a foreigner. The Finnish welcome everyone and don’t hesitate to give appreciation where it is due. They are not a very noisy crowd though. They usually will not initiate conversations with strangers but once the ice is broken, you will be surprised to see how nice and friendly they are. They have a very good health care system as well. The Finnish government has many environment friendly policies in place to maintain and preserve its nature. It might also interest you to know that according to Reader’s Digest, Helsinki is one of the most honest cities in the world.

22. Japan

Capital: Tokyo

Population: 126,860,000

Currency: Yen (JPY)

Average income per person: $40,090

Average life expectancy: 84.74 years

best countries to live in the world

Japan is full of convenience stores where you can find anything and everything that you may need. They are always customer friendly. Japanese food is great. It is healthy and it tastes great. It is so easy to find a teachers’ job in Japan. They are always willing to learn English and there is always a shortage of English professors. But you should know that the Japanese are workaholics and perfectionists. If you are European, this may need some getting used to. Japanese public transport is one of the best in the world. It makes it so much easier to travel around the country. The health care system in Japan is fantastic. This and their food is probably why many of them live to see a hundred. The crime rate is also very low. It is also a beautiful country to live in. Also, visit Mount Fuji while you are there.

21. Ireland

Capital: Dublin

Population: 6,378,000

Currency: Euro

Average income per person: $50,503

Average life expectancy: 80.68 years

Irish folklore is known all over the world for their fairies, leprechauns and castles. If not a castle, finding a beautiful home in Ireland will not be difficult as they have something to suit every budget. It’s excellent location makes visiting other countries very easy. Barcelona is two hours away, Rome is three hours away and the UK is just a mere 45 minutes away. The weather can be pretty unpredictable but it rarely ever snows in Ireland. Also, by law, employees are required to avail their 20 days of compulsory leave every year. If you are lucky enough, your employer may even award extra vacation days to you. The Irish have excellent work-life balance. Also, Ireland is very safe. Guns are illegal. But if you own a farm, you can have a farm kind of gun. The homicide rate is 1.1 per 1000 people. The public healthcare system is very good is funded with general taxes. The government also offers excellent public transport. And rental cars are pretty cheap. But fuel is a little expensive. Ireland is known for their music. And also, if you don’t already know, Ireland is full of pubs. So if you are the partying kind, go pack your bags already.

Just want to point out I live in America and bigotry and racism is one of the biggest problems to our country. Anyone who is different is not only made fun of but bullied,forced to be alone or with people like them,assaulted,and unfortunately there are plenty of White Supremacy groups like the KKK or Neo Nazis who are not only racist but will target anyone who isn’t white,christian,american(by birth),pro life,republican,or anyone who isn’t just like them and they are well known for seeking out and killing men and women who are different. Not as bad as it was many years… Read more »

“america is racist” is a false statement. There are individuals in the country of America that are racist. I live in Ga, and go to a school full of international students. No one is racist here. The president is a racist individual, but a person can not judge an entire country with such population by just a few peoples judgements. There are plenty of good people here and much more freedom. Canada is great too, visited before, liked it!

{I live in Ga} And where would “Ga” be. In the northern or southern hemisphere. You are abbreviating a state’s name because you “think” every one understands your “lingo”. And this is PRECISELY the problem in the US. The inability to look both outside AND inside to a question or issue. You presume that the world knows what “Ga” means because that is the little-world you live in. And, frankly, it is the same “world-view” throughout the US. Where people cannot possibly conceive other ways-of-living and, more so, other key-attributes of life-style. Like, for instance, the one Bernie is trying… Read more »

You’re a racist for saying that all Americans think everyone gets their slang or lingo, because that’s not true. (By the way, never start a sentence with “and” you stereotypical pinecone.)

“And” at the beginning of a sentence is grammatically incorrect only when it introduces a fragment. Your use of “racist” doesn’t seem to have anything to do with racism.

I think travel broadens you – you learn their are many ways to do things and that people are basically the same everywhere.I do understand your views of the USA because many people are very insulated and not interested in the rest of the world.

In either Italy or France, a US citizen would easily get citizenship after a few years of residence. Because both countries are colonies of the USA, in short. Moreover, health care is guaranteed to everyone in both countries, stupidly because that’s why those countries are getting flooded with migrants.

What is it with you americans being so agressive? Is it the food they give you? The social environment? If a person becomes as agressive as you, must probably live in a very toxic environment. Good places make people happy. And hppy people are not rude to others.

So how is Donald Trump racist name some things since u think u know everything.

Derrick
Guest
First off if you’re competing with an illegal for a job, the jobs not worth having. Second the reason why things are so ” pricey” is a direct result of supply side economics enacted by George W Bush. Third Donald The Flip-flopping Trumpanzee is racist because he says things ” Where’s my African American, I think I saw one here right? ” The use of “my” and ” saw one” is very racist, I’m sure being the under educated redneck you are, you think the only way someone is racist is if they call someone a nigger.

The US was ranked 37th in the last world wide study, and they have been falling steadily since. The US has the most expensive health care system in the world and is the number one reason for bankruptcy. before you start spilling the right wing propaganda about people coming to the US for health care check your facts. They basically come to the US for cancer treatments, treatments that were only possible because the US tax payer pays into cancer research $500 million annually, many of which will not be able to afford the results of that research.

I have to admit when I was reading Denmark are being number one, I was thinking how much they would want me and my half black daughter living there. I’m pretty sure she would not just fit into that perfect country. At least in America we do have diversity.

Diversity is a fifth column. Every group has their own interests, diversity breeds destruction and mistrust. Take your half black daughter to south africa

You are seriously stupid madam. I’m Australian with some Danish friends who are decent ,I can’t say tolerant because that would infer that there was something for them to be tolerant of.

You are such a fucking idiot if you believe Donald Trump and the KKK are threats to the American public. The Klan hasn’t killed a single person in over 20 years and that was a lynching involving a black man that killed a cop and got away with it “mistrial”. And that was a single klan chapter.

Ma’am there were sparks of racism in crazy numbers before Trump even started running, I am in now way condoning trump, he is a racist prick, but Hillary isn’t much better, look at the FBI, and Sanders probably only endorsed her because he was threatened or something. The whole country really is brainwashed, and it’s terrible. I live in USA as well, more specifically Maine.

Was racism due to anything Obama did or was it do to the reaction of racists to having a mixed race president. It seems more likely the latter along with right wingers joining them to improve their chances of power.

Evelyn, you are absolutely correct!

Waekup

The only thing Obama has done is be black. THAT’S whats changed the racial tension in America. What it did was bring out the true nature of racist ass Americans that had subdued it over the years. Add ignorant ass Trump to the mix to stir the pot and you have what we are witnessing today. His policies have zero to do with race relations. If you’re not a racist to begin with no policy under the sun is going to change that.

petunia
Guest

You are not only wrong and funny but ignorant of the world around you. He could have taken different stands on things and did not- perpetuating the race riots and all the unrest.
And he’s 1/2 black – so we can’t even do that right lol

Waekup
Guest

Whats perpetuated racial tensions is the blatant mistreatment of people of color in this country. Period. His statements didn’t pull triggers of police killing unarmed citizens. His statements aren’t handing out uneven jail sentences based on the color of peoples skin. “He could have taken different stands on things” is code for not wanting him to side with minority plight at any turn. Something that you wouldn’t understand anyway. You are living in la la land if you think it’s anything else spurring these events. If you can’t see that plain truth, you are the ignorant one.

petunia

wow – you really have bit into all they have thrown out there. We didn’t have NEARLY the problems until Obama took over…. murder in every city is up – black on black and black on white – cops getting killed – riots… stats are all up. jail time is not unwarranted…. they are emptying OUT the jails of people who should still be there to make room for more! Crime, murder, rape – all up since 2006…hmmm….

Greg Larabel

Uneven jail sentences? Your an idiot! Anyone who is a repeat offender gets harsher punishment. That punishment differentiates between judges. It’s ultimately up to an elected judge to determine sentences. Saying Obama or Trump has anything to do with it is fucking stupid. Get the fuck out of here. Besides if the black communities across the country would step up and do something about their communities, instead of looking to any government program to help get them out of the oppressive state they keep themselves in, they would be alot better off. Instead people like Obama and his mindless supporters… Read more »

Just so you know, President Obama didn’t “bring back” anything. It was ALWAYS been here and African Americans have ALWAYS felt it. The reason you THINK he brought something back is because up until he REMINDED you of it, you had the luxury and convenience of either pretending or not even knowing that it existed! Yes, even if we all won’t admit to it, EVERY AFRICAN AMERICAN has lived with and experienced racism. We literally can’t go a month without encountering it in many cases. So every time you (or anyone else) say that the President “brought back racism”, it… Read more »

Apparently the U.S. Department of Justice Department disagrees with your astute observations:

“In March, the U.S. Justice Department civil rights investigation found that Ferguson police and the city’s municipal court engaged in a “pattern and practice” of discrimination against African-Americans.

For example, in 88% of the cases in which the Ferguson police reported using force, it was against African-Americans. Also, between 2012 and 2014, black drivers were twice as likely as white drivers to be searched during traffic stops, but 26% less likely to be found in possession of contraband.”

…. Know what you are talking about sir.

I hate to tell you but the statistics are skewed because the people committing the crime’s, unfortunately, happen to be black. 67% of the people that live in Ferguson are black. This goes to show you that most of the people that are driving around the area will be black. Excessive force was needed because they resisted. What were they supposed to do?politely ask them to stop running away and get in their vehicles? I am sick of this self righteous, whoa is me scenarios.

I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed your list here, even though I had really low expectations to come to a new (to me) website to read “just another list”. The facts for each country are really interesting and different compared to similar lists. It must have taken quite a bit of time to research all these things 🙂 As a constructive tip, I think you should include also “weather” as one of your categories. I live in Northern Norway, and even though we have 24 hour sunlight in the summer, we also have 24 hour darkness in the… Read more »

I live in America and I seen that America is known for freedom of speech? That I am big fat lie. We don’t have freedom of nothing. Americans are full racism and if you are different you will be bullied mistreated and put down. If you have any brown color you will be discriminated against. You don’t have Freedom of religion. They say citizens have constitutional rights but they are broken every day. Also civil war means nothing because they still treat and carry black people like slaves. America moto should be if you are white your right.

All that matters in America is money… Not morals, not honesty, not integrity, not decency, not rationality. Everyone plays the role of a rat. Nobody is trustworthy and it’s everyone for themselves. You will hate life here or try to convince yourself it will get better… but it never does

OK .. Jeff… You start out saying 2 things is the 1 thing. so which one is it? one thing or the other? Not even worth responding to really. But the topic is hot. So why not? Bigotry and Racism are NOT the biggest problem with america. The FDA, DEA and IRS are three of the biggest problems with our country. Not to mention corruption in government. (except that’s the problem with all 3, corruption) You people with attacking any one group. YOU ARE THE BIGOTS AND RACISTS THAT YOU ARE MAD AT! Saying it is all one group, republican… Read more »

let me tell you, Costa Rica is a big lie, I went to there and the people are disrespectful, the cities are always dirt, there is no order, I loved the nature of the country but, they don’t take care of it. I heard Costa Rica is the Switzerland of Central America but I never saw it. I don’t think countries like Costa Rica, Qatar or United Arab Emirates are at the European freedom level or citizen education. Greetings from America!!

Man, fuck America… Land of the Free my ass. People don’t leave thia country because of the fears of the world that the media portraits to keep us here. Why do you think it’s so hard to leave or make enough to see other places outside of this fucked up country. Hard working people die to live and can’t even retire no more hardly.

Why is everyone so mad about living in the US? There might be 200 bad cops in a population in 340 million. Our election is in fact terrible, but how much will it really affect us as citizens? Will our national debt matter when I go to work? No. It won’t. Hillary is corrupt and Trump is a complete idiot – I know that. But what I don’t get is why people judge the United States on the candidates. I also don’t understand why you think the KKK is such a big problem. They are a hate group that is… Read more »

WOW. Explains why I haven’t lived anywhere but Australia and New Zealand. I wouldn’t emigrate to the US unless I had a compelling reason to. Feel sorry for the Mexicans that go there thinking that it’s better lol. I do lots of business with the US (just the nature of the industry I’m in), but am desperate to avoid ever having to move there. I do want to do a “theme park holiday” with my daughter there admittedly, as some of those theme parks look awesome! Notwithstanding, I am grateful that I live in the relative land of milk and… Read more »

Oh look a bunch of Americans arguing over politics and racism. Please, don’t anyone go on a goddamn shooting spree.

I don’t know if the US is only 24th, but it’s definitely not a top 10 country. An education system that leaves most Americans to the world outside their borders, massive levels of inequality and levels of poverty in the South, in Detroit etc., a wage system in service industries where the customer has to pay the wages of the staff rather than the business themselves and a voting system that is not very democratic at all.

Hi, I got here looking for info about life quality in other countries to emigrate from mine, and it was very surprising to find such good comments about my homeland, Chile. I wish that description you wrote was accurate. I have two degrees and yet live in poverty (and I’m not unemployed). This is the “american switzerland” only for wealthy people from developed countries. Here, everything is cheap for them since our currency is so low. 700 chilean pesos (the price of the subway ticket) is 1 usd. The thing is, the salary for 60% of the population is 250… Read more »

surveys should stop going to the eastern side of santiago (our capital) to ask questions. That is the rich area. Go north, go south, go to the countryside, go talk to the people who pick up fruit (main activity at where I was raised), go talk to the fishermen, to the lady who sales that icecream you think we love so much. We can’t afford icecream! Talk to people from outside that 10% rich who live as if this was switzerland. People here spend from 20 to 30 years paying their college loans! The fee for college goes from 250… Read more »

Not only is this terribly written, It is also ridiculous to see UAE ranked so highly. You even stated that they stone and perform forced amputations on homosexuals, and stone people for kissing. The country is just flat-out babaric, and the residents few rights and almost no freedom, with so many extremely strict rules. It is NOT a good country to live in at all.

I can tell by that comment you know very little about the Christian faith. Christians now follow the New Testament- has for about 2000 years… no more stoning – amazing. In fact Jesus himself said ” those without sin cast the first stone “… essentially condemning stoning. now the Muslims and Shira law have not condemn stoning – it is the punishment for many crimes -so I’m not sure how the Christians can be turning the blame on anyone

Tell us HOW Trump spreads hatred, predjudice, radicism bigotry etc…
Please sight these references.
Where you would like Love, peace and happiness – that’s an ideal that the rest of the world doesn’t believe in. We need some tough love so the world doesn’t walk all over us like OBAMA was letting them. Hillary was even worse!
Again, need those references to all the bad things Trump has said/done

I’d like you to list HOW Trump spreads racism and violence…. as a matter of fact – you should look into how the Democrats have been spreading racism and violence for years– the KKK was begun and run by Democrats. The Democrats now are full of hate and bitterness, anger and negativity. Just look at facebook and any headline! Tolerance? Compassion? The things that Democrats talk about but have not even come CLOSE to. If there was love and compassion do you think the demonstrations would have Molotov cocktails, rocks, burning the flag etc?

Wow – Grumpus suits you! My point is that the study was about the healthcare system not pre and post op, not healthcare results, lives saved, correct diagnosis, being able to get surgery in a timely manner, recovery rates…etc.. I agree we have an expensive healthcare system – we are a capitalist nation and cannot expect doctors to spend hundreds of thousands on (superior) education and insurance and not get paid much in return. There ARE countries where dentist visits are $9 but what dentistry are you getting? what is the dentist like that gets paid $9 a pop? sheesh….… Read more »

If you read the actual study’s you would have seen they did include post op, lives saved, correct diagnosis, wait times for surgery, etc. They too are capitalist countries. For that fact, only one country in Western Europe has “socialized medicine” and that country is the UK. Maybe you are confused on the financing. You would rather pay twice as much for less health care so that you would not have to pay more in taxes? For instance, in other words you would rather pay $1,000 a month with a deductible and limited coverage to a private health insurance company… Read more »

Thanks for the history lesson Grumpy. If you read that preamble you will notice that it says the country (all the people) will provide all the conditions ( a perfect union with justice, defense, “general” welfare, and liberty) so that people could do it for themselves. It doesn’t say anything about providing people with enough money to make themselves rich. The possibilities and conditions are there- and many of the very wealthy in our country (or their families) have worked hard and started businesses that made them wealthy. It’s what has made this country great. ANYONE can do it. You… Read more »

I know that you think simplistic cartoons may help you get a better grasp on the various economic systems and how they work, but they only will work for grade school educated people if the cartoons are based upon some form of reality. What your “mouse” doesn’t state is what “socialism” is. “Socialism” defined from Merriam Webster; “Definition of socialism 1 : any of various economic and political theories advocating collective or governmental ownership and administration of the means of production and distribution of goods 2a : a system of society or group living in which there is no private… Read more »

Still having problems with “general welfare”? As I stated, those programs were created to help with the “general welfare” of the public. Noticed that you left out the US military which is a socialists dream of what actual “socialism” is. The government spends about $59 billion on traditional social programs and approximately $92 billion on corporate subsidies (that would be those that don’t need it, like Exxon.). But please get back to my question, where does it state in the preamble “so that people can do it for themselves.”? Further, you have ignored my question about the countries that your… Read more »

As I stated “general welfare” was always about protecting not giving anything away. The military is a given and is run by the government in most/every country that is organized enough to have one. It doesn’t need to have the words “do it for themselves” just as it doesn’t have the words about things being given away. As far as socialism – There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them- The countries that claim socialism share a common definition of “socialism” and they refer to themselves as “socialist states on the road… Read more »

Please show where it states in the preamble of the US Constitution that “general welfare” was defined as protecting not giving away. If that is the case, then why is it that corporations receive $92 billion in subsidies? Further, Sweden, just like the rest of Western Europe are capitalist countries. For that fact, the only health care system in Western Europe that has “socialized medicine” is the UK. The rest are capitalized. You do not get to redefine what “socialism” is to suit your own beliefs. “Socialism” is clearly defined whether capitalists or anybody else likes the definition or not.… Read more »

Seems you don’t get that they did not use federal funds for social programs for 135 years – it was up to congress to interpret what it meant.
I have a masters degree and I understand, I guess, more than you do. I suggest you read up on Socislism, Marxism and the like.
As far as healthcare: Thirty-two of the thirty-three developed nations have universal health care, with the United States being the lone exception.
You really do need to investigate further and not trust CNN on your information

Grumpus
Guest
So what about the 135 years before they had what are considered traditional social programs. They also had slavery and endentured servants, only property owners were allowed to vote, no interracial marriages were allowed, and these are just a few examples. As far as you having a masters, so what. It obviously is not in the field of economics or political science. That masters degree did not help you with the fact that you are wrong in stating that Canada has “socialized” health care, which is a clear indication that you do not know what “socialism” is. Glad that you… Read more »
