As the expats who already live in Thailand will tell you, the nation is a great place to retire, so to us it came as no surprise to hear that Thailand has been amongst the “World’s 7 Most Retiree-Friendly Nations” article, published in the American online news website, the Huffington Post. If you are looking for sun, sea, sand and entertainment, Thailand really is a great place to retire.
The positive news comes at a time when Thailand is currently climbing back to one of the top world holiday destination, so it’s perfect timing.
The article compared the legislations in place to make it easy for non-native pensioners, and the availability of formal retiree visa and low cost financial requirements. Thailand was alongside other nations such as Malaysia, Equator and Panama.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) have been licking their lips over this positive article, with their Governor, Thawatchai Arunyik saying “Thailand has long been a popular destination for retirees, thanks to advantageous exchange rates that ensure pensions and savings have always gone a lot further here than in more expensive nations.”
