    People with incredible amounts of money dont worry about migrating. They merely buy properties in different parts of the world , be it UK, US, Monaco and some island and stay in different parts of the world @ their convenience. Their asset portfolio is already diversified and some if not all are parked offshore.

    Also, not many countries have a policy that will grant u citizenship just like that. If anything, they will give you a permanent resident status so that you can come and go as you please and it is only after a period of time that you can apply for citizenship status.

    nothing change still - just live simply as it is.

    I will still work as per normal. Donate substantial percentage of money to the needy , and do some investment.

    Of course, clear my loans and travel more with my family

    The best place is, already mentioned... Sg. Since I'll be an "Elite" liao, the policies here are better catered to me.

    It's because I DON'T have INCREDIBLE sum of $$$.... I'd rather be where the policies are better suited for the working class.

    Italy for its laid back pace, great food, and a chilled-out outlook towards life.

    Heck, if money is no object, I'd spend my summers in Italy, and the rest in Japan!
    Italy is also a bz country though.There are cities like Milan and Rome that are very 'in'.If you are looking for a relaxing,laid-back country,why not Greece,Switzeland or Tennese??

    If the amount of money is big, I assume that working for money stops?

    I think I'll stay in any country with plenty of beautiful scenery to sooth the soul (and the camera).
    I think u stay in Singapore and be an elite also no point coz the scenery not that famous, after a while, it will get bored.

    Beware your new found "friends" who did not bother to know you before.
    Beware your own inflated ego and consequent stupidity.
    DON'T "invest" if you don't know what you are doing. Some people learn the hard way. Aka the mini-bond way.
    Don't rely on so-called relationship managers -oh by the way, someone just lost $1Billion.
    Stay healthy.
    Don't have 3 or 4 China mistresses, they will wipe you out no matter how much you have.
    Don't ask for bodily harm by flaunting your money/wealth/gold openly in foreign countries when you tour/visit. People can get killed over relatively little money.
    Don't be an idiot and announce to everyone that you have ($).
    Stay cool.
    Keep your feet on the ground.
    Don't suddenly think that you are now too good to stay in your country.
    Nationality is something to treasure. Ask a stateless person what it means.

    And how much money do you have that you would consider adequate?
    if you have so much money, it doesn't really matter where you live.
    So just live where your love ones live.
