The Independent/Business Insider: 27 cities around the world where expats are happy, rents are affordable, and jobs are plentiful

InterNations recently released its 2017 list of the best cities for living and working abroad. For each city, the cost-of-living estimates from Numbeo's database were added. To compile the data, InterNations surveyed 7,985 expats living in 40 countries. A city had to be mentioned at least 45 times to be included. City rankings were determined based on the quality and cost of urban living, quality of work life and finances, and ease of settling into the city, according to an article published by The Independent.


Prague ranks 2nd, meaning it is the second best city to live and work for expats:

Cost of living compared with New York City: 49.5% lower


Rent: $703.08 for a one-bedroom in the city center

Utilities: $184.45

Commuter pass: $25.09

Cappuccino: $2.12

Domestic beer: $1.60
