Best Arab Countries to Live In

The Top Ten

1 United Arab Emirates United Arab Emirates The United Arab Emirates, sometimes simply called the Emirates or the UAE, is a country located at the southeast end of the Arabian Peninsula on the Persian Gulf, bordering Oman to the east and Saudi Arabia to the south, as well as sharing sea borders with Qatar and Iran.

I am visiting there right now and I think that it is a very good place for Arab and Muslim people from other countries to visit. The only thing is that many citizens look down upon non-citizens and if your parents are not citizens, you can NEVER be one. Non-citizens can't even buy houses! It gets annoying since about 3/4 of the population are not citizens...

Outstanding country with a peaceful and joyful environment with many entertaining things to do in you're free time. The country is full of astonishing views both natural and man made. Economically one of the best places to live in when there is little to no tax making it easy to reach you're financial goals. The population is very diverse making it a beautiful melting pot with people of different skin colors, languages, and cultures.

The UAE government rep that I spoke with is Haughty & Belligerent; therefore, in my opinion they are just putting up a front to attract Foreigners to live there. More than likely they would put the Foreigners on one of their Islands that they are having disputes with & that ways they can the Foreign Government to Help them.

I wish if I lived there but its expensive bro xDD

2 Lebanon Lebanon Lebanon was established in 1920 and gained its independence in 1943. For a couple of years it has lacked a president; yet, on October 31st, 2016, it got president Michel Aoun . It is known as the Phoenix of the world since it has sunken under the ocean and has been destroyed by wars 7 times . In advance, ...read more.

Why Lebanon should be Number One on this list?

Lebanon to start with is arguably one of the oldest countries when it comes to age, history and heritage. Conceding Jericho in Palestine, Lebanon has one of the oldest cities in the world, such as Byblos which dates back to more than 5000 years because, Sidon which dates back to 4000 because and Lebanon's capital Beirut which was found 3100 because. Unlike many of the more developed Gulf countries, Lebanon has preserved its heritage whilst developing into a modern nation.

Historically, Lebanon has blended with tens of cultures due to the various empires that ruled this land and brought in more culture to its people. This has given Lebanon a mix of cultures and traditions that are rare to find else where in the world in a 10,452 km2 piece of land.

Religiously, Lebanon is divided into 18 sects. Making it one of the more diverse Arab nations. In most neighboring countries, people from different religions do not tend to ...more - daouk

I'm not Lebanese, I'm French. What is really special in Lebanon, isn't the nature, the mountains, the sea, the climate, touristic places, skiing and swimming within the same day during some months of the year, nightlife, restaurants, malls, food, extremely pretty girls, etc..., yes Lebanon has all of these but what makes it special is its people and their culture, people are extremely open minded by nature, very well educated, and so, so clever, relatively rich even though they don't have natural resources, most of them speak English and French as good as Arabic, their native language. There is freedom with all its directions and dimensions, socially, politically, economically and religiously. I don't like to talk about religions but Muslims there are very, very open minded and adaptive to others and very different from Muslims of other Arabic countries. In Lebanon, it is so often to see a veiled woman sitting together with her best friend, a woman wearing almost no clothes and see ...more

Lebanon is a beautiful country, whether urban or natural, awesome summers, festive winters, has almost equal Muslims and Christians, is generally safe, people are educated, most speak 3 languages (English, Arabic, French), signs are in Latin, is liberal and open-minded, has amazing city night life, snowy mountains, sandy beaches, historic ruins, touristic attractions, modern, great food, both Eastern and western, Beirut is the best, amazing weather kinda similar to Los Angeles in summers, winters colder more similar to south central Mediterranean Europe (Italy, France, Greece, Spain) and Lebanon has the best of both worlds!

As a French man working in a multinational company and that has visited most of Arabic countries í can easily say lebanon, without any doubt.
People there are open minded by nature no matter what is their religion even though Christians are little more open minded. In fact you can't distinguish between lebanon and any other European country.
Dubai is good too but Dubai has all the nationalities of the world living in so can't speak about its own citizens.
The bad things in lebanon is that they don't give their nationality to foreigners no matter how much time they spent in Lebanon or even if the spouse is Lebanese and Lebanese are racist people toward other Arab countries, they consider their selves superior to others especially to Arab which not the case at least recenrtly

3 Qatar Qatar Qatar, officially the State of Qatar, is a sovereign country located in Southwest Asia, occupying the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

No tax for employees, you get your salary full. Safest. Well-Educated people and speaks english fluently. Only Arab country which is sustainable esp the economy.

Plus, Qatar is the richest country in the world, so you don't have to worry about your salary or anything! And people here aren't strict.you can wear anything and whatever you want.it's also the most beautiful country on earth!

The People are saying that in 2025 or 2030 Qatar will be more better than UAE. Even now the Qatar is very beautiful.

Worst country ever. its not a real country. its just a geological coincidence. people are sooo ignorant and closed minded. I had a very bad work experience there in 2017

4 Kuwait Kuwait

Kuwait is number one in the Middle East when it comes to women rights, and the people of Kuwaiti consider to be more open minded than most Arab people when it comes to culture and traditions, and also liberal in terms of politics and freedom of speech, and its known for its great restaurants, malls and specially chalets for entertaining, and its safe and no alcohol is available, but the problems is there is no metro and the weather is very hot and if you do not have friends in Kuwait, I would not recommend it as a place for vacation, speeding cars, and movie scenes are censored here.

Kuwait is my country and been in almost every arabian country and I think its th best

I was living in kuwait for 14 years but sadly moved... Kuwait has everything and is safe for all people... The Kuwaitis may be a bit arrogant but the place is good

great

5 Egypt Egypt Egypt, officially the Arab Republic of Egypt, is a transcontinental country spanning the northeast corner of Africa and southwest corner of Asia, via a land bridge formed by the Sinai Peninsula.

Maybe what is happening now in Egypt could be very dangerous to the country, but I'm sure it will be always strong and number 1 in every thing. Egyptians are the most funniest and helpful people I have ever seen in my life.

Egypt is the best Arabian country, The funniest people ever! So helpful and beautiful. There's a lot of really attractive hot boys and beautiful cute funny girls! Egypt deserve no. 1.

Nicest people that ever lived. Beautiful county with amazing history and stunning beaches deserves to be number one, money doesn't make a country or its people beautiful, without anything Egypt is a gorgeous country.

Amazing contry

6 Morocco Morocco

The beaches all around multiple of spots to pick from. Close to the European nations, Open minded people yet very respectful. Businesses booming, a country with no crisis a country that developed and educates its people daily to strive and be as good as the countries that have oil. It shows you don't need all that oil money to strive as a country! People love one another... And if you can't speak Arabic, you can speak French. If you can't speak French, you can speak Spanish. If you can't speak Spanish, you can speak English.

Honestly this country is rich with beauty and enchanted with history there's a certain feel this country encompasses that I've never experienced in my entire life. From the gorgeous beaches to the beautiful and extremely respectful and friendly people this is the country to go to if you haven't been to Morocco what are you doing with your life go book a flight!

The best of the best with no particular reason. it's a land where east meets west and where you can enjoy different geographies, different cultures and delicious dishes. people are just amazing and quality of life index makes it in top of Arab countries

A growing country and the gate of Africa good people to live with

7 Oman Oman Oman, officially the Sultanate of Oman, is an Arab country in the southeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula.

Oman has grown in popularity in the past few years because of it's rapid development and elegance. Living in Oman is amazing, as the people are very humble, friendly and welcoming. Oman accepts anyone from anywhere, and doesn't judge people based on their culture, religion or nationality. It also has one of the most extraordinary landscapes I have ever seen, and is waiting to be seen by many other people.

Pleas visit Oman you will know that it is Number One or two not out of that I visited all these countries and I now what that Oman is the best country in all these

I live in Oman and I am an Omani and proud to be one. This country is honestly one of the most beautiful countries I have ever seen in my entire life. I have been to the United Kingdom it is beautiful but I love Oman more. You should really visit this country because it is amazing. In Google, some of you might find terrible pictures of Oman but some of that was years ago. Us Omani people have a ridiculously long history but no wars at all. Nevertheless, I also have been in Malaysia... Yes it is beautiful but not as wonderful as Oman. I have been in Malaysia and UK for four years so that is eight years. I have spent eight years of my life out of my country. We here in Oman have a great Sultan, amazing and gentle people so please visit Oman!...#Come_To_Oman

I Love Oman I think it should be #1 because UAE is the worst

8 Bahrain Bahrain

Its a cozy sunny island and people there are extremely friendly.. I love it I can live here forever!

Bahrain should be number 1 on the list. almost half of the population are foreigners and they welcome all religions. Women have much freedom and they dress whatever they like

Most freedom in the Middle East, this is like the only country in the Middle East where homosexuality is legal so in my opinion this country is the best in the Middle East.

The Kingdom of Bahrain is the best place to live in. you can work and live literally anywhere in the same time as the island is small enough to make it easy to go from top to bottom with only 1 hour!

yes its small but full of attraction and fun activities for individuals and families.

if its not great then why all the crowd visit this island every weekend? Bahrain #1

9 Tunisia Tunisia Tunisia, officially the Tunisian Republic or the Republic of Tunisia is the northernmost country in Africa, covering 165,000 square kilometres.

Tunisia has deep history, a crossing of multiply civilisations. It has a diverse geography: snow, forests, mountains, beaches, North African Savana, oasis, Sahara, Salt Lakes, islands etc. Not to forget how educated and friendly are the people there. They are quite open minded and tolerant, probably the most liberal country in the Arab World. Last but not least, they are the pioneer in their region: first to have a constitution, first to abolish slavery, first to liberate women... Also they were the first to start the Arab Spring but unfortunately they are the only one succeeding towards real democracy.

Thought Lebanon was the most liberal and open minded arab country but after visiting Tunisia it has to be Tunisia. Very European style. Tolerant of anything and the people are very nice funny and hot! If you don't know Arabic, they speak fluent French. Most know English and a lot of them know Italian and Spanish. Very educated people.

Tunisia is beautiful country it has the snowy forests in the north, the sunny beaches all year long and the warm desert in the south, a lot of history, people there are educated and tolerant, its cheap to shop and to get what you want and the most important its not artificial like other cities in the gulf arabian countries.

People there are very kind and welcoming
They're open minded and don't have problem talking and approaching foreigners 😍❤

10 Jordan Jordan Jordan, officially the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, is an Arab kingdom in Western Asia, on the East Bank of the Jordan River.

With my respect to all the Arab countries I don't really know how most of those countries are over Jordan in rank :), Jordan should be in the top 3 at least, for the sample facts that its one of the safest, has both modern and traditional life styles, so there is a bit of something for all tastes, and its multicultural and has much more benefits than most on the list.

Its so nice to live because of its people reactions which is so kind and there is a good places to go like petra dead sea downtown and historical places

There is a problem here, how come Jordan isn't the first country? We shouldn't rank a country by it's economy but by it's balance and people. Jordan mght be the most safe arabic country known, the views of Jordan are magnificent and if you learn to understand the population you will know they are the most original! LONG LIVE Jordan!

Jordan may be a monarchy, but still very safe and modern. Should be higher on the list.

It has worse human rights than North Korea. Also you can get killed from not being a Muslim man or woman. Woman's rights are horrible this country is like Syria.

Saudi Arabia is good it is the good country I don't live there I only visit the holy land it is awesome vote for Kuwait

Iran isn't even an Arab country. Only like 2-3% of Iranians are Arab.

Student: "Plus, the Arab religion doesn't value human life the way we do. I mean, we're the infidel, right? And these Arabs believe if they kill us, they get to go to heaven."

Dana: "They're not Arabs. Iranians aren't Arabs, they're Persians."

People, people, at least watch the Homeland carefully. Iran is NOT an Arab country. Neither Arabs nor Persians don't like it to be part of the other one.

13 Algeria Algeria Algeria, officially People's Democratic Republic of Algeria, is a sovereign state in North Africa on the Mediterranean coast.

Algeria is at the cross road of geographical location between Africa and Europe. Hence it has a very rich history that reflects on the style of living of its people. Algerians are open-minded, peaceful, generous and helpful. They, however, do not like to be an opponent or enemy of them, because they can be very tough indeed. As a place Algeria is a nice country with plenty of potentials, pity though, its government is not managing it properly and is wrecking its potential. Intellectually, Algeria can be considered to be one of the best in the Arab world, if not the best. I believe that Algeria, if managed properly, can prosper and become a Makah for visitors.

Deserve to be higher then this, great culture, many language, amazing nature, nice people - belarbi

The most beautiful arab country

Algeria is worst by far I am Algerian the government keeps raising prices of Food,Gas,Electricity and water bills they think they can build an economy out of back of its citizens but that's wrong no economy is Built on

social services they should offer A decent life for the Algerian people or step out and let some one who can.

15 Syria Syria

It was one of the most beautiful arabic countries before the civil war. The people are amazing, gentle and generous. There the culture and the civilization are very high and elegant In Syria you can find every thing... Old cities with old traditions, new cities where you can find everything you want. Syria is one of the most cities in the world that has all religions and all people live there together in pease they are very open-minded and enough intelligent to study a very difficult education and develope themselves while the goverment isn't enough developed. Everything there was just awesome it has a very high and important history. It was a very nice place for tourism and visit.

Yes Syria is a peaceful country and its always Syria wasn't beautiful it is still a beautiful country don't only think about the present also think about how was Syria in the history

Well it used to be nice and prosperous at this point there using chemicals and over 200,000 people died in the ongoing Syrian civil war

There we live, you can see all types of poeple, the war couldn't kill true love.
and the people are optimistic and will work hard to rebuild all destroyer countries. it is the oldest city in the world. and remember in Syria you can find everything you need

17 Palestine Palestine

The landscape and history of this land is truly astonishing. I can't understand why people have ranked it so low. I truly admire it and it's people. I think that the only country that is comparable to Palestine, is Lebanon.

It is an awesome and fantastic country.

Not a country.

Never heared about the country.
In 1948 you needed to declare independence instead of being greedy.

18 Sudan Sudan

Sudan is a really simple country with very out going and carefree citizens (this is a good and bad thing). Sudan is quite fascinating, the way you can talk to just anyone and go down the river or up to the forests or spend a night in the desert. Sudan is a very friendly place, and I know because I've been there several times and I happen to know some really nice Sudanese people

Sudan is bad because of the Government not the people

Not an arabic country.

There are two parts of the sudan, NORTH sudan and SOUTH sudan.
this flag right here is the NORTH SUDAN flag, and the North sudanese people ARE ARAB but the south aren't arab. TRUST ME I AM FROM NORTH SUDAN AND I SPEAK ARABIC AND I LOVE MY COUNTRY (P.S.T but I don't love the president)

I visited a long time ago, and I must say it's a beautiful country with so much culture & history! it reminded me abit of Rome/Italy. It also has one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It had strong potential to become the richest arab country but sadly it was under the rule of a tyrant who took the money all to himself & his family. Hope Libya sees better days soon!

It is nice country; however, nowadays it is not really safe to live in.

Yemen is my mother because I am from there but I will never find a country like Yemen because they care about Islam and they never forget to pray and you will have fun and like the prophet say if you git any kind of problem go to Yemen love you Yemen

Honestly, with all my respect to all the Arabian countries, Yemen should be at least one of the top 3 countries because it is the origin country where the most historical places are, the most generous people are and one of the best weathers in all the world to live in.

Yemen is the best country in the world but it is in war

Ward right now because president died. Now, women’ and children and men are being killed by Muslim murders similar to ISI.

31 Iraq Iraq

Actually the girls in Iraq are not bad, maybe some but not all so I don't think you judge like that at least make your judgement fair. I think Iraq should at least be in 8th position because it is a very beautiful country if it wasn't for the terriost attacks. I go to Iraq every year in the summer and I have so much fun. You feel so arab when you go there with all the arab food and sweets and the people. I recommend Iraq to be one of the countries to vist on your bucket list because people have got the wrong image about Iraq.

Iraq's weather is very beautiful and different, where snowfall in the north, heavy rains in the middle and south (very cold in the winter), while in summer a nice weather in the north and a hot sunny in the south. - zaraa
