Top 10 Expat Websites?

Greetings -

I realize this is a rather subjective question but besides www.expat-blog.com are there other "expat" or travel related sites that you utilize for (quality) information...?

I will start with the obvious - http://www.google.com and then depending on search results I extend out from there depending on if I am visiting a place long-term, purchasing property, or moving for good. But, after the google search what sites do you feel offer constructive and unbiased information?

Best,
Mark

New website has just launched for expats in France and soon in Spain as well box424.com.
It made by some of the same team that founded the popular Expatsradio.com.

Box424.com gives free information and entertainment in radio/audio form. They have a huge range of subjects from legal and financial advice to cookery, gardening and music.

Some programming is downloadable and all of it is free.

They also offer five free listings to each registered member....oh membership is free as well of course.

Have a look

i found a website that is quite good and called: Expatriates.com, ut for some reason etisalat has banned certain functionalities and rendered the website unusable.

The best expat site is right here, for sure. But also you can check out The Expat Directory,and Internations, a worldwide expat face to face meeting group with events at bars, and such activities as cookouts. They probably have a chapter near you!

I have been a long time reader of Expat-Blog.com and would say it has certainly been useful during my travels - thank you Julien and the team!

Whilst living in Singapore SingaporeExpats.com was one of my most popular sites particularly the property pictures section.

Most recently ExpatCareers.com was also bumped to the top of my list due to finding my current job through the site.

i am a regular reader of expat-blog, there are so many other like expatexchage.net, boomersabroad.com, but i find it more attrative, although the others have better features an more funtionalities, but i think in order to keep those functionalities working and to not exposing directly the expats, they have to take so many precautions which make these sites not friendly or usable in some way to a new or a common user!

As an earlier poster said, it depends on what country you're in. I soend a lot of time in Laos and there's absolutely nothing out there for that country, but there is a site with quite a few Laos based expats hanging around at orientexpat.com/laos/

Tax returns?  That reminds me.  I think I'm supposed to file in the US even though I don't live there.

As long as you are an American Citizen, you will be filing a tax return for the United States. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask :)
