I want to make it clear that I am not endorsing this list of cities that 14,000 expats reviewed, just simply posting it here. That's all.

Networking service InterNations surveyed 14,000 people for its third annual InterNations Expat Insider 2016 survey — in what has been tipped as "one of the most extensive studies ever conducted to explore the general living situation of expatriates."

The survey asked expats to rate several elements to their living experiences, such as career prospects, quality of life, attitude of the local population, working hours, and even weather.

Second half of the list seems better than the first half.

I think the list was made by German capitalists, 8 of the top 19 cities are German-speaking.
I can't take the list serious anyway with Jeddah and Riyadh in the top 35

Well, they interviewed 14,000 expats and took into consideration many factors (job prospects, cost of living, etc...).

That's a pretty good size of people, makes the survey more believable.

The expats stated they can make their money stretch there, meaning, good cost of living.

You can live a high quality life in Mexico City if you have a good job.

Probably expats voted for those cities, because they are entitled to a lot of more money to stay on those holes. A friend of mine makes like $15k a month plus accomodation in Beijing and Riyadh. No normal human being would stay there otherwise.

Stay where? Riyadh or Beijing?

I've heard some rather disparaging comments from chinese who lived in Beijing but i can't imagine that the capital wouldn't have its positive aspects.
