    Depends on how much money you retire on.

    Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur is a modern city with all the amenities you could wish for...and homes just outside of the city sell for as little as $35,000 U.S for a three bedroom home and rent for around $225.00 a month. Almost everyone speaks english as it is required in school and many brits, aussies and americans live there now.

    In the late 1900’s, Southeast Asia would probably have been a region that would have made the worst places to retire list. But today, it has become one the most popular regions for overseas retirement. This region is made up of the continental countries of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Singapore and Vietnam. It also includes the island nations of Brunei, West Timor, Indonesia and the Philippines. It is a culturally diverse region with many cultures, languages, religions and each country has its own unique history.

    Southeast Asia is a region that underwent the major trauma of international wars and major internal domestic conflict throughout the late 1900’s. The economies, environment and populations of many countries were devastated during this period. Millions of people fled their homelands as refugees in the wake of the Vietnam War and the period of intense political instability that followed.

    Yet today, the Southeast Asian countries have begun to spring ahead with amazing economic growth and development while others are just beginning to recover and rebuild. In this period of rebirth and rebuilding, Southeast Asia has emerged as one of the best places to retire in the world.

    I would choose Bali, Indonesia. Most people are afraid to live in Indonesia because of most populations are muslems, but in Bali is very special, because of the mix culture. I am currently in Germany, and planning living in Bali when we are old. Cheers

    Think about 'retirement.' That generally means getting/being old at some point (God willing). Do people really want to be in a third world environment at that point? Do you really want 'cheap' to be the most important part if you can help it? I think people are thinking of 'retirement' as in  somehow become wealthy or free of responsibility but still mostly able-bodied.
