4 reasons for expats to come and live in Amsterdam

More and more people who work for a company abroad are coming to live in the Netherlands for a longer period of time. In this case we are talking about expats. Expats make up an increasingly large part of the Dutch population, because the Netherlands is becoming more and more interesting for international trade. It is necessary for an expat to feel at home in a new country, and certainly in a specific place of residence. Moreover, an expat has certain requirements for his living environment. The following 4 reasons show why Amsterdam is the perfect place for expats!

  1. Amsterdam, the city with many cultures

More than 170 nationalities live together in Amsterdam. This makes Amsterdam one of the most multicultural cities in the world. Because of all those different nationalities, many languages are spoken in Amsterdam. This makes it the perfect place to live for expats! Just think about it, 180 nationalities, each with their own language, each with their own culture, each with their own customs. It is the ideal living environment for someone who has to stay in the Netherlands temporarily as a representative of a foreign company.

  1. Amsterdam, where everyone feels at home

Residents of foreign descent living in another country will meet. Take a look around when you are on holiday abroad. At the campsite you will find entire Dutch enclaves abroad. It is no different when foreign people settle in Amsterdam. There are numerous enclaves in Amsterdam, for example China Town. This place feels like you are really in an Asian country, with all its oriental shops and Asian residents. There are many more unique places in Amsterdam where it is ideal for an expat to settle. You feel right at home!

  1. Amsterdam, conveniently located

As an expat you would want to settle in a house near the workplace, so that you don't have to spend most of your day in a real Dutch traffic jam (which unfortunately is also part of the Dutch culture). And let it be that most large international companies have established themselves in the Randstad. Because of the central accessibility, because of the presence of gates, but also because of the ideal corporate culture. There is plenty of room for large locations and the tax climate is extremely favorable for foreign companies. It is therefore nice for an expat to live in or around Amsterdam.

  1. Amsterdam, the most cultural city in the world

Amsterdam is the most cultural city in the world, according to the ranking of 'The most cultural cities in the world'. Amsterdam has 96 theaters, 81 museums and 54 art galleries. This gives you plenty of options to spend your free time! And if museums aren't your thing, there are also over 1,500 cafes and bars to visit.
