If a Bulgarian doesn't greet you with a smile, it doesn't mean they're not friendly. It's just customary for them to not smile at strangers, even when you're being waited on at a restaurant.

But where the Bulgarian people really shine is at home. They're known for inviting people into their homes for lengthy meals and plenty of wine. And don't forget the dancing, something that Bulgarians really take pride in and love to do.

Despite rising tensions in the Middle East, Qatar is a country that is always looking to maintain friendly communication with other countries. The fact that it's also the world's richest country can't hurt either.

Plus, it has a low crime rate, and its expat community is particularly tight-knit, making it easy for people relocating here to find friends.

The Cypriot people are known for being hospitable, with friendly faces and smiles that make expats and tourists feel like they're part of the family — which is highly valued here. In fact, the Greek word for hospitality is "fliloksenia," which stems from "filos" (friend) and "ksenos" (guest or tourist), so you can expect to be treated as a friend almost immediately upon arrival.

Plus, the relaxed lifestyle, with beaches, 340 days of sunshine a year and delicious Mediterranean food aplenty are more than enough reasons to love this country and the locals who call it home.

While Nigeria has its fair share of corruption and violence, it has been named the happiest place on Earth in past surveys. That's mainly due to Nigerians' tendency to be unusually optimistic. They're often excited about the future and always looking on the bright side, a sentiment that permeates throughout the country to both expats and tourists alike.

This may have something to do with the fact that the Nigerian people are super religious, with both Islam and Christianity being heavily practiced throughout the country.
