Thailand offers the best overall expat experience, according to a new survey.

HSBC International questioned more than 4,000 expats based in around 100 countries in order to find the best place that offers the best balance of business, family and quality of life.

“The more countries we include, the more useful our surveys can be in helping expats compare life in the country where they are now to a country they are thinking of moving to next,” said Lisa Wood, head of marketing for HSBC Bank International in Jersey.

Thailand was named as number one, with Canada at number two and Bahrain at number three. In particular, the survey praised the leading countries for the ease of social integration and how easy it is to settle in a new place.

A number of new ventures have recently been announced for the country that could appeal to those taking flight to Thailand for a holiday, including the development of a major resort in Phuket.
