Denmark has one of the best healthcare systems in the world.
You’ll get proper treatment and don’t need to pay a crazy amount. In some countries, you could die if you can’t afford to pay your bills, and the quality of the hospital is not high.
I love how easy to book a doctor appointment in Copenhagen. Since I got assigned a personal doctor, all I have to do is to call her office in advance for my appointment. I can see my doctor on the same day.
Once I couldn’t reach my doctor, I got booked an appointment in a hospital instead.
The best thing is that these appointments are all FREE!
7. The public transportation
I love the biking culture in Denmark.
There are lanes for bicycle everywhere in Copenhagen, and people bike in any weather conditions: sunny, rainy and even snowy.
You can live your whole life in Denmark without a car. Use your bicycle and public transport such as trains and buses between cities! The metro system is useful in Copenhagen too.
8. The alcohol
If you enjoy drinking, there’s one more reason to live in Denmark.
The price of alcohol is relatively low in the supermarkets, and there is not much control like in other Nordic countries.
The bars close late at night, or even in the morning, so you can chill and relax the whole night, especially during weekends.
Also, Denmark is famous for Carlsberg so that you can try from where it was made.
9. The work-life balance
Denmark is a great place to work. I love the work-life balance here!
The average working hour is 34 hours, and you can get 5–7 weeks of vacation + 3–5 sick days + 10 public holidays
There is plenty of time to enjoy your life besides working.
If you are fired or quit your job, you can rely on the insurance to live and educate yourself to find a good job and not pushed to take the first job that comes.
10. The Innovation
I feel like people in Denmark have come up with at least one innovation in their life. Innovation, creativity, and entrepreneurship are like the fundamental element in their blood.
I’ve joined several entrepreneurship events and learned so much from those. I even got my inspiration to start Expatolife from those!
11. The equality
Another reason to live in Demark is equality.
Although no country has achieved equality between men and women, Denmark almost reaches that mark.
I love the fact that in Denmark, women are treated with respects and have their rights. Women are equal with men and even in managerial positions or at the Permian.
12. The processive
Denmark is the first country in Europe that stopped slavery, and also the first country that granted same-sex unions.
I think it’s great to live in a society where people can feel comfortable in their skin and community, be proud of their gender identity and sexual orientation.
