A survey by Internations lists 82 countries – and the highest places to live here are Zug and Basel at eighth and tenth.

Zurich is down at 41 and Geneva at 69.

The main drawbacks for Switzerland are the price of rental property and the ease of making new friends.

Asian cities are proving to be more popular with expats – heading the list are Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh and Singapore.
