Best Expat Countries Named for Weather, Prices & Remote Work | Travel News | To travel
A job can be a fantastic option for Brits who want to live abroad but don’t want to commit to becoming full-time expats. Combining remote work and leisure abroad, a job is the best way to travel and live abroad without becoming an expatriate or quitting your job.
The travel agency KAYAK published a Work from Wherever Index which looked at the best work destinations.
Analyzing 111 countries, the company ranked each on 22 factors, including cost of travel, local prices, health and safety, social life and weather.
The aim was to reveal “the best countries from which it is easiest to work while having fun during off-peak hours”.
Laure Bornet, GM, KAYAK EMEA, said: “We expect jobs to be an upward trend among travelers in 2022 and beyond.”

The best country for remote work was Portugal.
The country is already popular with expats and holidaymakers.
It makes sense that this is the perfect place to combine vacation and remote work.
KAYAK said the country scored “high in all categories, including good weather, a great abundance of places to go out, a low crime rate and a relatively low cost of living”.
DO NOT MISS
“Portugal also offers a digital nomad visa, and many locals have high English proficiency which attracts expats.”
Spain was in second place, another extremely popular destination for expatriates and Britons on holiday.
Romania was in third place. The country ranked well in all areas except weather.
The country more than compensates for its colder climate by having very attractive prices for rent and food.
Maurice and his good weather came in fourth place.
The Indian Ocean island is also attractive in terms of price, with long-term apartment rentals averaging £157 per month.
Rounding up the top five was Japan.
Although an expensive country, Japan ranked well for social life.
The weather in Japan varies greatly depending on the season, with skiing opportunities in winter and hot summers.
