If you have your sights set on living and working in sunnier climes in 2023, a certain Spanish destination should be on your radar.
The city certainly has plenty to offer people thinking of relocating, with plenty of sandy beaches, bars, clubs, cafes and a thriving nightlight scene – not to mention it’s the birthplace of paella.
What’s more, Valencia was also named the World Design Capital of the year – thanks to its impressive architecture and gothic cathedrals.
A low cost of living makes it an especially attractive place to settle, too – as well as the balmy temperatures.
The research looked at five parts of expat life: auality of life, ease of settling in, working abroad, personal finance, and the expat essentials index (which covers digital life, admin topics, housing and language).
Valencia scooped the top spot in the rankings and Spain was the only country with three cities in the top 20.
Elsewhere in the rankings, Dubai, Mexico City, Lisbon, Bangkok, Basel, Melbourne, Abu Dhabi and Singapore, all made up the top 10 spots.
Plus, with Spain planning to launch a digital nomad visa for remote workers very soon, there’s never been a better time to relocate to a Spanish city.
The Spanish government recently announced plans for a ‘digital nomad’ visa which would let foreign remote workers live and work in the country for up to a year.
This is specifically targeted at freelancers, people who are fully employed but work remotely, and those who make at least 80% of their income from companies outside of Spain.
