An expat shared their favourite things about life in the UK

The UK is one of the 10 most popular countries for expats to relocate to, according to recent research.

A woman who moved from Canada to England shared why "everyone should move here".

The expat, Alanna, explained what she believed the main reasons were why people want to move to the UK.

"As a foreigner who has built a life in the UK, I have reasons why I think you should move to the UK too," she said.

She spoke about enjoying new experiences and gaining a new perspective.

The British healthcare system was also one of the biggest draws to the country.

One of the most attractive things to expats moving to the country, she added, is the British people.

"For the most part, the British people have been extremely welcoming and friendly, kind and funny," she added on her YouTube channel @AdventuresAndNaps.

"They are a good bunch of people and they do not have to be welcoming, but they have been."

Recent research delved into some of the reasons expats move to Britain.

Overall, 67 per cent of expats are happy with their lives in the UK, according to the Expat Insider 2023 survey.

It ranked highly on work opportunities and the possibility of progression.

Compared to all expat destinations, the UK made it into the top 10 for career prospects, work culture and satisfaction.
