The cheapest places in the world to live
« on: May 21, 2018, 05:40:08 PM »
what a surprise Thailand is not on the list,so where do you get the best bang for your buck  :o if your going to retire and live there then suprisingly enough  Malaysia which was once a British colony where the cost of living is low and english is spoken is in 1st place. going across to the other side of the world and in second place is Mexico,a lot cheaper for the westerner than his own country. third place is Vietnam, has Thailand got more expensive then, i'm sure you can still find some bargains here, nod! nod! wink! wink! if you know where to look.

These lists of best, cheapest, worse etc are never very reliable. I worked in Malaysia on a couple of jobs, 3 years each but did not find the place particularly cheap.  I would never consider it as a retirement destination. Thailand is far more relaxed.

On the infallible and accurate TT List of Best Countries to Retire, Thailand is No. 1

Things That Really Only Happen in Dubai

thought you oughta know that if you have the inclination to actually wander outside the airport Arr!

When you have a nation of filthy rich citizens, things tend to get a little ostentatious and excessive. Take Dubai, for instance. A recent study revealed that one in every 100 people there is a millionaire, but uber-wealth doesn’t always breed class or style. Sometimes the things the Middle-Eastern nouveau riche choose to spend their money on are a little mind-boggling. Check out these over-the-top scenes from Dubai to see what we mean.

It’s cheap to live like a Thai in Thailand

Everyone says it’s cheap to live in Thailand, but the phrase should be: “It’s cheap to live like a Thai in Thailand.” If you’re looking for the comforts of home, you’re going to be spending considerably more. you can quickly go broke in Thailand, especially if you’re looking for western comforts.

Don’t let the possibility of a steep budget put you off visiting Thailand. The country is amazing and unique in many ways, and also a great place to start traveling in if you have yet to leave your home country.
