One of the top five places for expatriates to live is Bangkok

Bangkok is one of the top five ex-pat cities in the world, according to the language-learning portal Preply. On a list of the 60 best cities in the world for ex-pats to live and work, Thailand’s capital city ranked fifth.

The four cities that ended ahead of Bangkok in the rankings were Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Tbilisi in Georgia, Lisbon in Portugal, and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Bangkok is the second most affordable city in the world to rent a one-bedroom city center property, after Kuala Lumpur. Preply’s rating of the best places for expatriates is based on eleven distinct relocation parameters. Examples include the average monthly salary, the level of danger prevalent in the place, and the average time required to become fluent in the native tongue. Recently, Bangkok has ranked highly on a substantial number of lists. Bangkok was ranked as the top location in the Asia-Pacific region for its ability to leverage the knowledge leaders it possesses in international associations to attract international conventions, according to a report published in August by a consulting firm that specializes in international conferences. In June, Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia magazine ranked Bangkok as the best city in Southeast Asia, placing it at the top of their list of the 10 best cities in the area. In the same month, a British company ranked Bangkok as the second-best destination for digital nomads to work.
