Expats have named Melbourne as the best city to live and work in the world.
More than 14,000 people from nearly 200 countries took part in InterNations Expat Insider 2016 survey, voting in Australia's second biggest city Melbourne as the favorite location for expats.
'Not only are expats apparently happier in Melbourne, but they are more satisfied with their personal finances,' Vera Grossman from InterNations told Escape.
In Melbourne 79 per cent of expats said they were generally happy with work-life balance (Two female tourists take a selfie in Hosier Lane)
In comparison, expats in Sydney said they were unhappy with their financial situation in the city.
However, they loved the local weather and the friendly attitude from locals.
Sydney ranked in eighth on the survey, behind cities such as Houston, Texas which placed second and Madrid in Spain, which came in third.
