High life expectancy, low crime rate, less warfare, lower chance of al Qaeda attacking. - GreaterEmpire1

Yes it's a very beautiful and gorgeous country but it should have a better immigration system but that will be changing in the near future.

4 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

Full independence n freedom. High human values in several areas and... But corruption making people frustrated..

A democratic country which we can feel full freedom when compared to other countries..
Incredible India...
Proud to be an Indian!

India is currently an awful country to live in. It is filled with corruption, illegal child labour, corrupt and rich government officials, people working for an unbelievable amount of hours, like 80 hours a week, and a massive need for toilets. What the heck is the point of democracy if there are so many cons in living in India? The poverty in this country is the reason why people migrate to Western countries like Britain.

However, it has the potential to be a country similar to Western ones and will probably have a stronger economy than most western countries in the future, but at the moment has no right to be in the top tens in this list.

Because of its democracy and diversity in the world

I am indian I like india very much. Here are so many beautiful places like Taj Mahal in Agra, New Delhi, Mumbai etc.

5 China China China, officially the People's Republic of China, is a sovereign state in East Asia. It is the world's most populous state, with a population of over 1. 388 billion . It was established in 1949. Its capital is Beijing. The other major cities are Hong Kong and Shanghai. Chinese (Mandarin) is the only more.

China has Great potential in economy and political influence. From South to north, it shows very diverse culture and customs.

Xiamen is a very competitive city in living standard. Beijing is the centre of Chinese culture. Besides that, Hong Kong has wonderful shopping malls and is a financial centre in Asia-pacific. Shanghai is a growing financial city with both ancient and modern architecture.

Food is utmost. Four kinds of different styles of dishes in China could meet the requirement of different people.

The culture is so different.

China is the most powerful country in Asia because it is livable in terms of education, sports, history, economy, commerce & livelihood. The whole nation is absolutely competitive from dynasties to this modern-day history! Should be on Top 3!

Regardless China may has some rude people, but this country is getting improve.

6 Taiwan Taiwan Republic of China was established in 1912. After the Chinese Civil War (1949), the Chinese government relocated to Taiwan. Its capital was originally Nanjing but now it's Taipei. Mandarin is the most spoken language.

Taiwan is small and the people are friendly and have smiles on their faces all the time even when they are busy and is extremely healthy and comfortable to see when you are just about to go out to work. There is absolutely no need to cook food at home because the foods are cheap outside and are heavenly delicious! Also in the morning, if you live close to a hill/mountain, you can walk up to the top and see the beautiful view just before the day starts and relax your feelings and settle your mind down, good for physical and emotional health. Crime rate is low and is very safe and relaxing to live in Taiwan, moving to Taiwan as a retirement is a good idea as things are cheap and convenient stores are everywhere and opened 24/7.

Easily better than China

I lived there for 14 years, started 4 businesses, married a Taiwanese, and now we live in Michigan and plan on moving back because we have a child and want the child to grow up in a better society than USA. America is boring, lonely and the society is disintegrating.

Very nice country and nice people
No traffic jam
So calm - eleison10

7 Singapore Singapore Singapore, officially the Republic of Singapore, and often referred to as the Lion City, the Garden City, and the Red Dot, is a global city and sovereign state in Southeast Asia and the world's only island city-state.

An outstanding economy along with one of the cleanest environments I've seen. The crime rates there are incredibly low and last I heard, Singapore was one of the most expensive Countries in the world. Don't underestimate the Country's small size, it's pretty tough.

A beautiful country where safety and security are no concern. The standard of living too is high here. It's the perfect place for anyone and everyone!

I have been there the country is all an awesome city

Too expensive. - thunderstar1124

8 United Arab Emirates

One of the worst countries in the world. Too much discrimination. Natives think they're god. No exaggeration. Once all oil is gone, this country will be left with lots of mindless people. Shouldn't be on the map. Worthless crap. No offense, just my opinion and experience.

The UAE is the place where people are happy and satisfied living there and provided with all healthcare treatment, sport clubs, adorable natural features, amusement places and have the wonders of the world. Really the best place to live where you have all the comforts. - slow-motion

I'm sorry, homosexuals are executed here EXECUTED! No ta loves - Evaneeg1

I like UAE

9 Mongolia Mongolia

Mongolia is like the Switzerland of Asia. It has amazing landscapes, and among the few countries where the horses outnumber humans. Agriculture is popular, and highly valued, and yet there are less illiterate people living in Mongolia, then there are in America. Economically this country is a great place to live in.

Beautiful landscape, the only country with wild horses

Mongolian countryside is heavenly that's no doubt, probably the last country on earth where nomads and civilised people coexist together. Summer months are amazing especially in the countryside, the view and the nature is breathtakingly beautiful. The people are kind and friendly. The capital city offers plenty of entertainment and food for every taste and likes. The night life okayish. If you like ballet and classics you won't be too disappointment in what the city offers although its nothing like London and NYC. The culture is very different to Asian cities in general. Well its central Asia after all so be prepared. While capital city has seen great development over the last 10 years the gap between rich and poor is widening at a rapid rate you can see the contrast when you get up on the zaisan hill, the ger area pretty much surrounds the whole city and the high rise expensive condos near the zaisan area. Can't get any worse than that. The winter in the city is terrible. Well ...more

Heaven on Earth.

It's known for its beaches, rain forests and mix of Malay, Chinese, Indian and European influences. The sprawling capital, Kuala Lumpur, is home to colonial buildings, busy shopping districts such more.

13 Vietnam Vietnam Vietnam, officially the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, is the easternmost country on the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia.

Vietnam is a very lively city. Great tourism and sights! I've been there a couple of times and it always impresses me. The city, Ho Chi Minh city, is a great destination to hang out at. The nightlife there is like Los Angeles plus New York

Vietnam is always welcome. Vietnamese are friendly and always ready to help people. The cost in Vietnam is good... Hanoi to Saigon, full of ancient and modern things around. Very beautiful

Harmony with nature while living in Vietnam

Rly. Vietnam. You’ve got to be kidding me.

14 Thailand Thailand Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand, formerly known as Siam, is a country at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia.

Thailand should be in the top 10, it has an amazing culture and beautiful and nice people, the Philippines is not really clean, the air and water is polluted and its culture is heavily westernized just like South korea, while Thailand isn't. (from my 3 years of living there)

Thailand should be higher on the list. It's a country with a rich history and culture, friendly people, cheap cost of living & wonderful food. Thailand has lost a little of its shine in recent years but still deserves a higher rating.

Your misfortune is someone's opportunity...although the culture is rich and customs run deep, as a foreigner you are mostly viewed as a breathing ATM. After all this the environment is breath taking. Learn the language of you can.

Very friendly people.

Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar are other major cities of Pakistan. Urdu and English are official languages of Pakistan. World's second more.

Life in Pakistan - feel like I'm royal or something. As a citizen with the expenses (don't worry the country has reasonable prices ) it's absolute luxury.

I love pakistan "'. Because this country is the most beautiful country

Islamabad is one of the most beautiful city in the world with natural beauty of green mountains with wide roads and luxury plus high tech life style.

Just ignore the hate comments on this website. Pakistan is safe. Just unfortunate that we are sandwiched between two countries such as Afg and India that never wanted to see Pakistan a stable country
