InterNations surveyed almost 12,000 expats living in 181 countries from February 1 to February 28. Expats surveyed included foreign assignees, international hires, and individuals who relocated to other countries to look for work.
The survey was first conducted in 2014. This year, the InterNations survey ranked 52 destinations around the world, which were evaluated on overall livability, as well as quality of life, ease of settling in, working abroad, personal finance, and expat essentials.
Valencia, a port city in Spain, was voted the top city for expat living. InterNations said what stood out to the expats surveyed was the affordability of public transportation and how safe they felt in the city.
However, six out of 10 of the lowest-ranked cities were also in Europe. There were also two cities in Asia, one in North America, and one in Africa.
