What’s the world’s best city to live in for Expats?

Valencia, home of Olive Operations, was just voted the world’s best city to live in as a foreigner!

Moreover, no less than 4 out of 10 cities in the top 10 are in Spain, making the country by far the best choice for a life as a digital nomad.

Why, you might ask? Well Valencia scores very high on quality of urban living, healthcare, leisure options, culture and great weather, availability and affordability of housing. The only aspect it scores a bit lower on is carreer opportunies.

And this is actually a good thing when you’re thinking of starting a business here. If you’re looking to start a company abroad, and people are your greatest asset, Valencia is the place where you’ll find plenty of quality candidates and not too much competition.

Olive Operations can help you set up and run your operations!
