·2-min read

Yearning for a change of environment? This list may come in handy. According to a new study done by Comparethemarket Australia, Malaysia ranks 13th on the list of the world’s most desired countries to relocate to.

Australia-based price comparison website Comparethemarket.com.au has conducted a study on the most desired countries to relocate to. For this, they analysed Google search data for each country around the world for search terms related to relocating. The website analysed each country around the world on their annual search volume for terms such as ‘relocating to [country]’ and ‘moving to [country]’ to reveal the world’s most desirable countries to relocate to.

The study has placed Malaysia at the 13th spot of the most desired countries to relocate to. Malaysia was preferred as a relocation destination by residents of two countries — Singapore and the Maldives.

While the top spot has been taken by Canada, the least desired countries include Singapore, Nigeria, Germany, Sweden, Bulgaria, Italy, and Myanmar — which all share the 15th spot. Here’s the full list.
