Why westerners retire in Asia


When I was traveling in Indonesia, I found a lot of westerners, especially people from the Americas living there. I had some interesting conversations with a few of them and they loved the tropical places like Bali, Java, Sumatra, Philippines, Thailand etc. Not surprisingly, “Retire In Asia” has come up with a neat little info-graphic to show why westerners retire in asia.

    you have to be able to tolerate tropical heat, humidity and rain to live in asia. i would expect the air and water to be bad in cities and it is very crowded.


So, what do you think ?
