Just curious! Which country would you hope to, want to or whatever reasons feel like migrating there? State your reasons!

As for me, I think I prefer US and Spain hee... Reason being I want to learn Spanish.

I am originally from the UK, no intention to move back, I lived in the US for 12 years, no intention to return, I've been here three years and love the place and the lifestyle, so no intention to move. But if I had to choose, it would be in South-East Asia. I'm also curious as to why you posted

It is worse than bad, it even makes Malaysia look like Nirvana. The Politics, the social structure, police, dirt, smog, crowds, arrogance(surprisingly).

Last week I told one of my staff that the job they had done was not up to scratch. Typical Thai reaction: Quit and started badmouthing my employers and me in particular. Their perception of 'face' is so very destructive, especially for people with their economic and intellectual deficiencies.

I could give hundreds of examples. Amazing arrogance.

Nah CB- from Vermont but Box Hill is nearby. Funny thing when we say "Spot The Aussie"....I mean...what DOES an Aussie look like ? We're all from European stock generally (with a speck of native in the 'chick')...so we don't have a 'look' that is anything in particular just an awful godamned accent generally across the country. When I do the reincarnation thing I'm coming back as a wee Sottish lass !
Yeah, wot oid give ta be arble to tork proper like... :wink:

Hmm because I dream of migrating? Like I say, I am just curious.

I am sorry! I should have classified according to continents. My pool looks confusing. Australia is one of my dream option too.

Dubai anyone?

If I were single, either to Vietnam or back to China.
Both places undergoing amazing transformations.

I certainly know what you mean. I am a caucasian Australian of Irish/english decent. You go to some places in melbourne and you feel like you are the one in a foreign country....and some people look at you as if to say "what the hell are you doing here"
