    India easier than the US!???

    No freakin way in HELL!
    I've been to both places, and I can tell you with great authority, India is way harder to live in. It's not as welcoming and there's this huge cultural gap that most people didn't even know existed.

    And China easier than UAE!? The country that doesn't even allow you to leave the city you're in without a passport!? Give me a break

    well maybe Qwaider things changed NOW, who knows.

    Btw this rating is based on 'four categories: ability to befriend locals, number that joined a community group, number that learned the language and percentage that bought property.'

    so this is another thing to consider!

    But I agree with the first three :D
