If there ever was any truth to any of this S.A is a dangerous place to live for white people rubbish, then it must be true that South Africa is an extremely amazing place. Because consistantly year after year South Africa gets voted tops for quality of life. This time South Africa is voted in the top 10 places to live for expats (6 in fact) , in the biggest survey ever taken of it's kind.
Makes you think if people who move here like it so much , what are all the ones who left going on about ? It's almost like the ones who left or the whingers who remain have some other kind of baggage or agenda or something. Hmmmmmm. Could they be motivated by being bitter, racist douchbags ? Could be. Could very well be.
Once again whingers....suck it.
South Africa has been ranked the 6th best place for people working overseas in the largest ever global survey of expats.
According to the second annual Expat Experience survey commissioned by HSBC Bank International, expats in 30 industries in more than 50 countries were surveyed about their quality of life.
Canada, Australia and Thailand were ranked in the top 3, with the United States, Spain, Switzerland and Germany all ranked behind South Africa. The United Kingdom was placed at 23rd. (Too high in Roosters opinion. But still to those South African's who moved to that island cespit......Bwahahahahahahaha! )
Expats had to rank the countries in categories like finding accommodation, finding schools for children, banking, food, healthcare, setting up utilities and making friends.
South Africa was ranked as the country where expats found the biggest improvement in pursuing their hobbies and was also the top country for settling down. 55% of the expats surveyed in South Africa had been living there for more than 5 years.
According to the HSBC report there is a preference for making friends within the expat community and not the local community. The exception to this is Brazil, which ranks highest for local community integration, followed by South Africa and Canada where 91% of expats made local friends easily.
South Africa also placed high in the categories ‘finding somewhere to live’, ‘quality of health’ and ‘social life’.
High five ?
