Santander, Spain | Overseas Haven Report
Our Overseas Haven Report on Santander, Spain features a destination of simplicity, cleanliness, friendly people, and a real look at Spanish living.
With its magnificent view over the Bay of Santander, it’s not surprising that Santander, a small but bustling and interesting city on Spain’s Atlantic Coast, is justly proud of being a member of the “Most Beautiful Bays in the World Club.”
Located on the Costa Verde—or Green Coast, so-called thanks to its lush greenery—Santander is built on a series of hills overlooking the Bay of Biscay. It is largely a modern city that was rebuilt in 1941 following a huge fire. Almost all of the Old Town was destroyed, but what emerged was a handsome city built along an accessible and beautiful seafront with several white-sand beaches. That modernity is really summed up by the moving sidewalks that climb between the residential areas.
This used to be the haunt of Spanish royalty, and much of the architecture reflects the glamour and richesse that that long relationship endowed with the Royal Palace and courtiers’ homes all along the seafront, a ritzy casino, and very well-manicured parks and beaches.
This is not a hot location; in fact, it has a damp, mild, and Atlantic climate, with fairly constant average winter temperatures between 46ºF to 53ºF, while the summers rarely go above 86ºF. On the plus side, it is rare for snow to fall, but it does rain—expect some every month and the most (up to 7 inches) in November.
If you like the outdoors, sports, and a four-season, temperate climate, you will enjoy Santander and the beautiful scenery surrounding the city and its immediate environment. There is enough to keep culture vultures happy, but if you tire of what’s on offer, it’s a short journey to Bilbao or even Madrid for a weekend to top up on the latest exhibitions and shows.SKU: OHR-SANTANDER-SPAIN

Santiago De Chile | Overseas Haven Report
If you’re looking to relocate abroad, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a city that provides more than Santiago de Chile.

Plus, Chile has four seasons and features incredibly diverse geography: the majestic Andes, the Atacama Desert, a stunning coastline, sparkling lakes, fertile farmland, and hardwood forests… all of it incredibly accessible. Santiago is only about one hour from the mountains, the beach, and the wine valleys—you can ski and surf in the same day!
Business, investment, and employment opportunities abound, and obtaining a visa, residency, or starting your own company can be done with ease.

Santiago De Los Caballeros, Dominican Republic | Overseas Haven Report
Santiago de los Caballeros (“James of the Knights” in English) is the second largest city in the Dominican Republic. With a population of nearly 1 million people, Santiago is located in the northwest of the country around 100 miles north of the capital, Santo Domingo.
Santiago is now becoming the location of choice for many expats seeking city living without the hustle and bustle of the capital. It has excellent shopping, a vibrant cultural and social scene, great restaurants, the best education, and arguably the best health care facilities in the whole country. Employment, if required, is fairly easy to find, and the transport links are excellent. The international airport right on the edge of the city offers several flights to and from a wide range of North American cities. What’s more, it’s only an hour’s drive from the fabulous north coast beaches and, due to new road construction, that will be even quicker in the near future. Not only can you be on the beach in an hour, you can also be in the middle of the highest mountain range in the Caribbean within the same time by driving south instead of north, meaning a fabulous abundance of adventure activities.
If you’re looking for the best of all worlds—Caribbean beaches, stunning mountain scenery, and all within a stone’s throw of a genteel Dominican city with all of the essentials for the expatriate—look no further than Santiago. It simply ticks all the boxes.SKU: OHR-SANTIAGO-DLC-DR

Smart Cities Around The World | Overseas Haven Report
A “smart city” is a city that’s smartly run. The city’s movers and shakers work together, think collectively, and use technology to make the city a better place for its residents, with sustainable (and often cost-cutting) innovations…
Smart cities are all about technology working behind the scenes to improve your lifestyle… you don’t even know it’s there, but it makes urban living easier, cleaner, healthier, more efficient, and generally more pleasant…
These cities have transportation that serve residents instead of hinder them. They have local planning laws, for example, that stipulate that tall buildings (businesses and apartment blocks) must be located on a bus route, so development is organized and contained to key “urban corridors of growth.” Transport and real estate work collectively rather than reactively.SKU: OHR-SMART-CITIES

- Asia-Pacific, Overseas Haven Reports, Taiwan
Taipei, Taiwan’s capital city, offers a fascinating history and culture, highly developed infrastructure, and the buzz of constant activity that comes with a big population… Yet it’s often overlooked in favor of places like Singapore, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. This is a mistake.
Taipei embeds technology into life in ways you didn’t realize were possible until you visit… But this hasn’t sterilized its culture. Amid all modernity, pockets of the ancient endure, like the centuries-old Longshan Temple or the City Gates that date to the Qing Dynasty.
Night markets, parks, and shopping districts give a glimpse of Taipei’s edge. It also has museums, galleries, landmarks, parks, temples, a zoo, hiking trails, and hot springs to offer you… In short, this city deserves to be noticed just as much as its neighbors.
If you’re looking for a peace and quiet, Taipei probably isn’t for you. The pace of life here is rapid, bordering on frantic. On the other hand, if you’re excited by the breakneck speed at which innovation is taking place in this part of the world, it could be perfect for you.SKU: OHR-TAIPEI-TAIWAN
