    • Could becoming an expat be the key to living a happier life?

      There are currently more than 50 million expats living worldwide and that figure is only expected to keep growing as the expat lifestyle is becoming an increasingly popular choice. Many expats move abroad for work, to retire or for a better quality of life and our recent research showed that almost 70% of expats felt that their move had lived up to their expectations.

      So how could becoming an expat make you happier?

      Expat life can open up new opportunities and experiences that may not have been available (or as appealing) at home. Popular expat destinations like Australia and New Zealand give expats the opportunity to make the most of the weather and scenery and live a more active lifestyle. Expats in countries like Thailand or China may feel encouraged to break out of their comfort zones and learn new skills by immersing themselves in the culture and the language. And if you’re an expat looking for love, HSBC’s expat survey found that the Philippines is the top destination to find a long term partner.

      Whether you’re thinking of becoming an expat or you’re already settled abroad, why not push the boundaries and try something new:

      • Take the first step and sign up to a language class.
      • Join an expat group or forum and become part of a community who share your aspirations.
      • Embrace the local cuisine and try a new dish.
      • Book a trip and explore somewhere that you haven’t visited before.
      • Have a go at a sport you couldn’t do at home – whether that’s hiking or bungee jumping, the choice is yours.
