Expats rate Australia as the second best place to live in the world, according to a new survey. More than 3000 people living abroad in more than 50 countries responded to the Expat Explorer survey by HSBC. Australia’s weather, lifestyle and the ability to integrate with locals came up as the reasons why people voted for Australia.

Canada was voted the best, followed by Thailand and Singapore.

Qatar, India, Russia and the United Kingdom ranked poorest.

Those who took part in the survey were asked to vote on food, social life, accommodation, healthcare, working hours, family life, ease of organising finances, ease of finding accommodation and ability to make friends in their adopted country.

HSBC Bank Australia’s head of personal financial services Graham Heunis said there was a distinct trade-off between income and overall quality of life.

“What is clear is that in locations where salaries may not be as high, like Australia, expats are enjoying not only an increased quality of life but are also finding it easy to fit in to their new communities,” he said.
