Question Ideal place to live?

I though it might be worth getting some advice from our varied membership regarding what would be an ideal area/region/country to live if I was to spend more time away from UK.

I know it depends on a number of things and individual needs and circumstances but still worth trying to get some ideas.

I have worked out some requirements that I have and trying to see what place would work.

So for me I need the following in no particular order;

1. quick & easy access to international airport - max 1 hr
2. fast internet speed
3. quick access to good healthcare
4. moderate temperature all year round
5. friendly natives
6. Muslim friendly or at least not hostile to Muslims
7. Max Flight time from UK about 6hrs

Turkey does tick most of the boxes for me, but I would like to know if there are any other areas I should consider.

Even in Turkey where do I look?

Areas around Istanbul, Izmir, Bodrum, Dalaman, Antalya ??

Your requirements on points 4, 6 and 7, really only leave Turkey.

Have you considered Morocco Mushtaq?

After a quick check it looks like it may come close to covering your criteria. Here's a few basic links I've looked at:

https://www.google.co.uk/flights/#se...london+morocco

https://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co...y/Morocco.html

Re: Ideal place to live?

Well if I had my time again in Turkey it wouldn't be in a coastal town, I would head for somewhere inland, about 30 mins to 1 hour from the sea.
