Top Ten Asian Countries to Live In
The Top Ten
High life expectancy, low crime rate, less warfare, lower chance of al Qaeda attacking. - GreaterEmpire1
The most perfect guarantee of individual life and social welfare. Do you think other Asian countries have the same quality? Never!
Asian version of New York. But has way more sushi.
I'm planning on moving here, hopefully get a job in the computer science field. Done research here, healthcare here is apparently one of the worlds best. One part that scares me is that this country has high taxes and low wage. Culture and entertainment here is top tier, just if your a weeb, please don't come until you've got a future plan that isn't just "live in waifu land". Me personally I'm hoping to live in Hokkaido being the snow bird I am. Natural disasters frequently happen South Japan and on the eastern shore, so be prepared for tsunami, earthquakes, typhoons, sinkhole. And don't forget North Korea is next door. Yeah but honestly 50% taxes holy...as a Canadian I'm used to 10% taxes.V 148 Comments
Korea Should be ranked on the 2nd next to Japan.
Low crime rates, great weather (four seasons), various activities to try out, beautiful mountains and scenery, great public transportations, delicious food, comfortable homes, outstanding economy, crazy nightlife, has the one of the best amusement parks, Korean people have "정" (jeong) which is a human nature for compassion and sentiment to fellow being.
One of the safest and most exciting places to live in!
Modernised central city and amazing food! Who can resist the temptation of korean food definitely not me!
Safe, Don't need to worry about crime, Low cost, Delicious foods, Lots of fascinating places, Amazing nightlife, Kind PeopleV 94 Comments
Nice beaches nice place nice people.. A very free coutry... All of the people here understands and speaks english.. Very good!
Many beautiful spot and hidden paradise
Philippines is the best country to move in to Asian countries since all foreigners are welcomed with high hospitality value, you will be easy able to live in with your new Filipino neighbors since we Filipinos treat everyone with respect. Filipino people are very happy, cheery, religious and contented people, we aren't materialized people but just with respect, you can get their hearts. It's also affordable to first live in the Philippines. It is also a free country. Filipino people are very proud that they are the THIRD LARGEST GROUP OF English SPEAKERS in the world after the United States and the United Kingdom so it is very applicable for foreigners who can speak English to easily adjust with the Filipino culture!
Their current President is a sexist, authoritarian leader, who brags about killing political adversaries.
He has the audacity to brag about this.
At least Putin covers it up.
Oh and have fun with those typhoons.
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..
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
Independent and democratic nationV 189 Comments
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!
I like china cause I'm from thereV 43 Comments
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
Infrastructure is perfect. good country to live!V 40 Comments
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.
AMAZING FOOD AND PEOPLE! I love everything there, so much nature and animals while being close to cities. SO much diversity. Love itV 34 Comments
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.

Cause when you're in any Asian country you feel relaxed peaceful well I'm a Malaysian and I don't think Malaysia is a bad place to live cause there are a lot of funny people, weird and crazy-like yet nice people well I think every countries have weird and crazy-like yet nice in their country... But Malaysia IS the BEST COUNTRY TO LIVE IN YEAH!
Malaysia will develop fast and high in future.
I'm from Mongolia. Honestly, I'm jealous with Malaysia because their country is beautiful, net, nice and civilized. This country full of excitement and natural beauty natural environment. I ever travel to Malaysia. I go to Petronas Twins Tower.. And WOW!... It's AMAZING AND FANTASTIC!... I want to travel to Malaysia again... Thanks You!
I'm Indonesian and I love live in Malaysia. They got everything and I'm kinda jelous of that.V 32 Comments
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 would never go there because they discriminate against gays and lesbians and treat women like property. - thunderstar1124
I'm sorry, homosexuals are executed here EXECUTED! No ta loves - Evaneeg1V 15 Comments
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
Food what else do I need to say
oh yea and also beautiful land
Loves living in Hong Kong. Expensive but best quality of life. Easy transportation. Easy to do business, trade. Diversity. Arts, leisure, night life, foodie culture, sailing, hiking, what's not to love?
Excellent place easy Transportation, awesome crowd, hiking, quality restaurants
Who's the dumbass that put this up here? Hong Kongnis in China and it's not its own country. Like?
Hong Kong's not a country, just saying. - PerfectImpulseXV 7 Comments
Isn't Georgia just amazing? So peaceful!
Georgia is Europe - JackLawler
Georgia is asia
Georgia is caucasus
It has over than 17000 islands, the people are nice, kind, helpful, and friendly. Even though there are a lot of polluted city, but It also has some nice, beautiful yet enjoyable places
Here, you can find many cultures, foods, musics, the friendly people, traditional things, and the others you want to find.
Most of Indonesian people are kind to each other. Most of Indonesian people are assume that foreigner like an public figure, that's why they are so kind and friendly if they meet with foreigner. Indonesia also has so many beautiful nature scenery. You need a long time to visit all of tourist attraction in Indonesia because in every region/area in Indonesia has more that one destination.
Why is this country so low here?V 30 Comments
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
Vietnam is great! As a Vietnamese person, I can confirm that Vietnam's people are warm, friendly, and very welcoming. They will be much more than happy to befriend you. The scenery is amazing, and the history is very captivating.V 20 Comments
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.

I have never visited Kuwait before since my birth but I can surely testify that Kuwait is of the best country to live in this world. ,By the my personal four year research and study about this country and from what I have heard from my friends staying there.
It has a 42% obesity rate. That's almost as fat as Americans' egos!
"The flag so stinning just looking at it
Not so good on economy but the people are friendly

NOTHING ABOUT Armenia? Anyway, the Armenian Genocide happened here. Other than that, it's pretty good. - PinkFloyd87
I didn't know about Armenia until I saw this entry -_- - Joansb
It's a good country
I've been to Kazakhstan like 4 times and this country is very nice. People are very friendly. Propbaly the best country to live in in former USSR. I am pretty sure Kazakhstan will become one of the most advanced countries very soon!
Kazakhstan is the most beautiful country in the world! In addition, the people here are very friendly, the culture is infinitely rich, it is undoubtedly the best country to live and work in!
You know the movie Borat? Well the main character is from this country. And, If you look it on a map, it's huge! - PinkFloyd87
Kazakhstan is astonishing.
The country has beautiful
it has so many places you
Could visit such as
And other amazing places.
The food there is amazing.
We are talking about the best Asian country to live in, not the best Asian countries to travel to. I've been to Iran three times, and the only reason why my parents decided to do that was because of my grandma. And it's way easier to live in Iran if you are a man. You don't need to cover yourself up till you die of heath. And actually, it's not easy for a man either. My uncle that is an engineer did not get his salary for a year. Thousands of Iranians are trying to get out of Iran, and I hope that everyone are going to succeed. so.. Yeah... I don't think Iran is a good place to live... - xXImMyOwnHeroXx
Iran is so pretty
You get too see ghe damavand mountain the hottest desert on earth and 2, 000 years of history... Quite spectacular.
A good place to live in...if you are a straight Muslim man - PerfectImpulseXV 12 Comments

As I know about Bangladesh, it is the most beautiful country in South Asia. Bangladesh has the biggest and most beautiful see beach in the world. The people of Bangladesh are strongly amiable, friendly and helpful minded. The foods are delicious and healthy. I would like to suggest you for visiting this country and take a taste of Bangladesh.
Bangladeshi people are friendly. Our food is very tasty. Living here will cost a lot cheaper. Here, people respects their family, country etc. Moreover, living in Bangladesh, especially Dhaka, its capital will make you see the old culture of this beautiful country. So, everyone's welcomed here.
Bangladesh has many positive things to mention. The nature of Bangladesh is one of the most beautiful in the world. The country has world's longest sea beach and largest mangrove forest. The sea beach "Cox's" Bazar is naturally beautiful The mangrove forest "Sundarban" is a world heritage. The tea garden of Sylhet is really awesome. The Kuakata sea beach will give you the opportunity to sea both sunrise and sunset. The country side of the country is like a picture. the delicious foods of Bangladesh will definitely captivate you to got to this beautiful country again and agai. And the people? Undoubtedly, you will be mesmerised with the hospitality of the people of Bangladesh. lets go to this South Asian country for having a real Asian test!

Then why isis attacking to Turkey! You think Turkey isn't safer than Europe? How about Paris attack of isis? You are stupid dumb! Don't believe your corrupted media!
Turkish cuisine is the best in the world
I have to say, I love how Turkey is ranked below North Korea. I don't know what Turkey is like, but worse that North Korea? Now that's a stretch.

Cambodia is truly doing all they can to revive their nation. The struggle is real in capital. Just like most places in SEA, Cambodians are pleasant and hospitable. I look forward to revisiting this country.
I love living in Cambodia. This is the only reason for me to stay close to my Cambodian girlfriend!

This's my country and I know that my country is not the most technologically advanced country. but we have a beautiful sea like beach natural... and our population is so kind. a lot of country that love my country and I love my country too.V 1 Comment
1) A small but very peaceful Muslim country goverened by traditional absolute monarchy system.
2) Locals are cared by free education, free healthcare, free housing and subsidisded rice, fuel, and others.
3) Rich in eco diversity due to large areas of protected rainforest. The air is always fresh.
4) Low income and road tax. Cars are very affordable.
5) Very relaxed pace of life is great to raise a family.
6) Crime rate is almost negligible with zero chances of riots, unrest etc.
7) No natural disasters except for rare occurences of slight hazes.
8) Zero international debt, absence of nuclear power stations and nukes, any possession of any harmful weaponry is highly illegal, Muslims follow only one branch of Islam (Mazhab Syafie'), so no, we are not out to get you.
9) Gender equality of rights in all areas. Many women hold very influential jobs in various Ministries.
10) High level of support to special needs, single mothers, orphans, newly Muslim converts ...more

Uzbekistan is best country in the world and in the Asia there are more interesting things to learn but most people in the world don't now that. this is their fall
