Best place to live for what? There are fantastic places to live all over the world, but what do you want out of where you live? I'm a foreigner living in Thailand, which is a great place to live, but there are positives and negatives to everywhere you live. Living in Thailand takes patience and tolerance and an ability to not sweat the small stuff. Figure out what you want, narrow down your options, and then out of the places on your list, figure out where it is possible for your to live.
