    How is it possible to live in a foreign country? Can anyone do it, or do you need some kind of qualification/reason?

    I presume wanting to living in Thailand because it's hotter than the UK is not going to give you a Thai passport any time soon...

    I would love to work in the hotel industry in Asia, have no idea how to go about doing this though...

    Somewhere pretty rural in Northern Scandinavia where I could see the northern lights clearly. Wooden chalets, snow and Fir trees and all that jazz, I love that.

    East coast of Australia maybe.

    Unless the country has an an agreement with your country, you'll need a Visa.

    Depending on the country, they'll let you in freely if you can prove you have a decent amount in your savings (for insurance and stuff) or in the case of a country like the US, you'd need to have a highly-skilled job waiting for you or be
    'extraordinary' (i.e a celebrity or a diplomat)

    When we win our freedom, Iran will be a great place. It has incredible potential.

    That I think it is hypocrite to talk about "when we win our freedom it is a great place".
    You talk about as if you actually live in Iran, which you don`t.

    Ontario, Canada/ Munich, Germany/ Liverpool, UK (my hometown, where all my family are)

    I really love Tokyo but i think it may be too much of a culture shock for myself! and the language is awfully difficult!

    I hate London though....NEVER.

    What is a decent amount? Are we talking a few grand? Or a hundred grand?
    I'm a recent graduate, not a millionaire.

    One of the Nordic countries. They all score high in statistics, such as healthcare, and they all seem very wealthy countries (considering their populations). People I know from those countries also seem to be some of the most tolerant people in the world, and devout theism is almost non-existent in the Nordic countries which I also like. Sweden or Finland would be my first choices since I love their languages

    But as much as people complain about the UK, when compared to other countries around the world, I'm pretty happy in the UK too I guess.

    There was a scene in top gears Vietnam special where they showed the islands.... They were so amazing, living a carefree life in there sounds absolutely amazing...I'm probably not realising the disadvantages but if there were none, it would be a dream to live somewhere like that... Forget the cities

    Wow i just thought it was just me who loved the Nordic countries, looks like I was wrong... but anyway I too would chose to live in the one of the Nordic countries. (Sweden or Finland would be first choice since I love their languages )
    Sweden is really cool, I prefer Germany because it has bigger cities.

    I think Germany is one of the best countries in the world - I love Berlin and Munich.
