Not every expat aspires to settle down in a first world haven equipped with all the amenities available in the home country.

For expatriates looking for a different experience, developing countries across the world are the places to consider. A number of formerly third world states are now blessed with growing economies as well as increasing influence on the world stage. Three in particular are worth investigating – Vietnam, Indonesia and Oman.

As is the way when a third-world country wakes up to the 21st century, Indonesia’s economy is booming in a very impressive manner. With its over 17,000’s the planet’s largest archipelago and is home to a plethora of different peoples and their individual cultures. Opportunities for open-minded expats are many, and the expat community is spread across many of the major islands. The weather ranges between warm, wet, hot and very hot, perfect for would-be expats whose home countries only offer wet and cold along with a few days of sunshine.

For the geographically unstable expat who’s never hear of the Sultanate of Oman, the gulf nation snuggles next door to the United Arab Emirates on the Arabian Peninsula’s southeastern coastline. It’s a delight for the eye due to its stunning beaches, beautiful historic architecture and mountainous landscapes. Life is slower and more relaxed than in most of the Gulf States, and Oman is known for its safety, stable political situation and enticing work/life balance. The economy is growing, giving chances for expat professionals to get in on the ground floor.

Vietnam’s economy is growing at an unprecedented rate without diminishing its fascinating culture and vibrant social life. Entrepreneurship is the present-day name of the game, giving great opportunities for adventurous expats looking for the right destination for a start-up. The Vietnamese people are famous for their friendliness, and the country itself is one of the most interesting in Southeast Asia. Compared with neighbouring states, it’s politically stable and welcomes foreigners to its charming capital, Hanoi.
