Happiest countres in 2015

#1 Switzerland

Maybe it’s the work of the Swiss chocolate that makes this country the ultimate leader of all the happy countries in the world according to the latest statistics. Switzerland knocked the runner-up, Iceland, with a close shave and is ranked as number one on the report. This country is situated in Western and Central Europe, and borders many other countries such as France to the west and Italy to the south. Based on research done by Credit Suisse, this beautiful country also has the highest nominal wealth in the world, per adult. Its cities such as Geneva and Zurich have constantly been ranked in the top lists of cities with high quality of living.

#4 Norway

Previously ranked as the happiest country, Norway has slipped down three places to number four. Nevertheless, many people will always perceive Norway as a perfect country to settle down in. For me personally, one big reason to live in Norway is that I will be VERY happy living in the capital city of Oslo where there are a handful of Michelin Star restaurants for me to indulge in. Do you know that the sun never sets in some regions of Norway during summer months? For those who love the outdoors, North Cape area will be a great place to live in because the sun stays out for 24 hours!

Being one of the wealthiest countries in the world, Australia also ranks high in many areas globally, such as education, health and protection of political rights. Cities such as Melbourne, Sydney and Perth are also hot travel favorites that attract millions of visitors each year due to the abundance of attractions in these cities.
