Moving across the globe from Luxembourg as the 6th Best Places to Live in the World we go down under to New Zealand in 5th Place of the Quality of Living Index for the Best Places to Live in the World.
New Zealand is an English speaking country and boasts some of the most beautiful and pristine landscapes found in the world. Did you see Lord of the Rings? Well most of those wonderous mountain scenes were shot in New Zealand. This small country is often compared to Canada in its position of having a larger dominate neighbour in Austrailian - much like the U.S. is to Canada.
One of the key measures of Quality of Living in New Zealand is the uber low crime rate - the police still don't even carry guns!
Clean air, family friendly, wide open spaces and an excellent health care system all add up to one heck of a place to live and raise a family.
