This couple've chosen to live their full pensions.
They've found a land of 1600 m2, and they've built a 120 sqm villa with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, lounge, air conditioned, 80 sqm terrace and swimming pool 4m x 6m. All for 130 000 euro.
In Thailand, a couple can live very well on a budget of only 1000.-Euro.
You're retired or you will soon be taking early retirement, you want a country where you install a small corner of paradise?
Khao Lak in Thailand is the region you need.
Khao Lak is a region where life is cheap ... We can lead the good life with 1200 euros per month for two.
For your information, the minimum wage in Thailand is 150 euros, the standard wage of an office worker is around 250 euros per month.
This large difference must make you aware of the huge gap between the average Thai and farangs (foreigners word for white skin) are a priori considered wealthy. But the farangs are seen as long as they behave with respect, everything is done to make life enjoyable.
And it is very easy for these same wages have staff to help with the housework or gardening.
Khao Lak is a haven for retirees. A quiet, free of violence, prostitution or drugs, without exaggerated nocturnal activity, just the singers who accompany your meal outside. Local markets for shopping everyday. Refer to page "Why Khao Lak?".
