Looking to ditch your stateside job and leave the country? Portugal might just be the place to land.
The country that shares its famous port wine with the world apparently also has the best quality of life for expatriates, according to Expat Insider 2017, a comprehensive report on expats. The report involved about 13,000 respondents from 188 countries or territories. A country needed at least 75 respondents to be included in the review published by InterNations, an expatriate-focused social network with more than 1.6 million members in 390 communities worldwide.
Respondents were asked to rate what it was like to live and work in 65 countries that are considered destinations for expats. The Expat Quality of Life Index used leisure options, travel and transport, health and well-being, safety and security, and personal happiness in its calculations.
Portugal landed the number one spot with only 4 percent of surveyed participants saying they had any dissatisfaction with their new life there, according to the findings. The report suggests the country's popularity with expats can be linked to its widely available leisure activities and temperate weather. In fact, not a single respondent said something negative about Portugal's climate and weather, according to the findings.
Taiwan ceded the top spot it held in 2016 to rank second to Portugal this year. Spain trailed in third.
Here's a look at the 10 countries with the best quality of life for expats:
