Also boasting an attainable and pleasant quality of life, there are a range of social activities to enjoy during leisure time while living in Manchester for the very reasonable monthly average rent of £317.


Slightly further afield than the north of England, however, the added distance will certainly be worth an expats while when they come to live in the beautiful city of Amsterdam.

One of the most culturally rich cities in Northern America, Montreal also has plenty of pursuits assignees can enjoy after hours, including a live music and arts scene.



The new hub of innovation and entrepreneurship within South America, Chile’s capital city of Santiago possesses some of the lowest business and income taxes in the world, making it the ideal destination for a fresh entrepreneur hoping to make their mark in the business world.
