02 October, 2013 08:18  EasyExpat EasyExpat

Expat guide: Doha, QatarWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Doha, Qatar.

The demography of Qatar and Doha is unusual in that the majority of its residents are expatriates. Qatari nationals are a minority in Qatar; there are 33 migrants for every 1000 residents in the country. Ethnic groups in the country include Arab (40%), Indian (18%), Pakistani (18%), and Iranian (10%). Qatar shares the top spot with Libya for the country with the highest ratio of migrants to nationals.

Qatar has prospered in recent years with continued real GDP growth. Offshore and onshore oil and natural gas are the basis of Qatar's economy, providing it with the highest per capita income in the world and making it the country with the world's lowest unemployment rate. Petroleum accounts for 70% of Qatar's government revenue, over 60% of its GDP, and 85% of its export earnings.  (More)

Expat guide: Bangkok, ThailandWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Bangkok, Thailand.

Bangkok is home to some 9.7 million people and has a distinctive Buddhist landscape, with gold-layered spires, elegant pagodas, and enormous Buddha statues. It is the perfect example of an ancient modern day city. The extremities of Bangkok continue making it one of the world's most interesting cities: from its glamorous skyscrapers and abundance of shopping malls, to historic temples and ruins steeped in Buddhist history, from traditional river taxis used by locals, to the powerful BTS, to shacks housing multiple generations of families sat next to luxurious, elegant riverside hotels, Bangkok is without doubt a city that has it all. There is, however, something about this mad chaotic fascinating city that causes people to fall in love with it.  (More)

Guide for expatriates in Zagreb (Croatia)

Expat guide: Zagreb, CroatiaAnd another one! After Malta and Kuwait, we are now publishing our new city guide for expatriates in Zagreb (Croatia). Nothing better to finish an exceptional month in May for our expat guides. :-)

A small country that's remarkably easy on the eyes, Croatia attracts millions of visitors annually to its stunning Adriatic coast. Still, it's not yet a household name - but even if you think you haven't heard of it, chances are, you have. Among other claims to fame, Croatia gave the world the necktie (or cravat), the fountain pen, and the first functioning parachute, and scientific genius Nikola Tesla.

Zagreb, the capital city of Croatia, is often described as "Vienna's little sister," thanks to its neo-baroque architecture, lush city parks, numerous cake shops and open-air markets, and a café culture that rivals that of Paris. The people of Zagreb love to socialize, and any time of day will do for an hours-long chat over coffee or a drink.  (More)

Expat guide: Valletta, MaltaWe are proud to launch our new city guide for expatriates in Malta.

Malta is a small island nation located in the middle of the Mediterranean, 80 km/50 mi south of Sicily and 333 km/207 mi north of Libya. Comprised principally of the islands of Malta, Gozo, and Comino, the country covers just 316 km2 or 122 sq. mi. With a population of just over 400,000, this makes Malta one of the smallest and most densely populated countries in the world.

Valletta and its surroundings in the eastern region of Malta form the most densely populated area of Malta, and include the villages of Valletta, Sliema and St. Julian's. Although called Valletta, the capital city, our guide is also largely focused on those other villages praised by a very high concentration of expats who reside in these seaside villages.
