Indeed it is. If I won the mega millions lotto and if you could reduce its average temp by say 10F I’d live there.

Wow! Thanks for the link. I’ve bookmarked it. I could also live in Singapore, even with the weather as it doesn’t bother me. A few years ago, while coming through airport immigration, I asked the really nice officer if Singapore had retirement visas, like Thailand and Malaysia, but was told that they didn’t.

Happy Travels!

We were just in KL. If you are looking to retire somewhere it’s not bad and much less than Singapore.

I looked into the Malaysia My Second Home (MMSH) visa, extensively, back starting in either 2013 or 2014. I retired in 2012 at age 56.
I decided not to do the MMSH visa. If I had, I wouldn’t have totally retired out of the U.S., but that type of visa seemed really good as one can go in and out of Malaysia, as much as one wants, and for 10 years after one has been approved for the visa. I was on e-mail with some agencies. But, I wouldn’t retire in Kuala Lumpur. I’ve been going there since 2001 and will be there shortly in Jan 2019. I would locate to Penang if I were to stay long term in Malaysia. My first choice is Bangkok and then Singapore. But, the Thai retirement visas, are a headache as they have to be renewed each year, I think it is, and it’s more difficult to go in and out of Thailand as much as one wants without it affecting the visa. So, I’ll stay put here at home and keep going back and forth as long as possible as I’ve been doing it anyway since Dec 1998.

Happy Travels!

I see many US citizens retire much closer like Panama, Belize or Costa Rica for example.
Financially its a good deal but as a retired RN I’m always concerned about what the health care is wherever the relocation site is.

True, Jacketwatch. Many do retire to those countries. But, they are not my areas of interest for such. I know no one in those countries as opposed to having traveled to Asia for 20 years now and having some friends in different places.

Happy Travels!
