How about Malta?

Living in Malta.

There is no doubt that Malta is a very popular destination for expats and there is a lot that this little island has to offer. Its 300 days of sunshine, history, culture and entertainment is what makes it most desirable not to forget to mention that Malta might be one of the best countries in the world for a good work-life balance.

There are many international companies here, one of the most popular is the iGaming sector since Malta is a hub and has over 300 companies working in this industry. Offering very competitive salaries and low taxes.

It is easy to live her and communicate since their second language is English and people here are very friendly and are always ready to give a helping hand to whoever comes forward.

Travelling around the island is easy due to its size, however the only downfall is traffic causing some delays.

Cost of living in Malta.

Malta is relatively cheap especially when compared to northern European countries.  A pint of beer at a small pub can go for as little as €1.50, food is very affordable, and public transportation is relatively inexpensive as well – 75c per journey if you have the ‘Tallinja card’ which is basically a top up pass.
