Thailand, one of the best places to retire in 2015!

5 Jan

Thailand has come in at number 10 for the best places to retire in 2015 as rated by the International Living magazine.  Thailand’s low healthcare cost (which is high in quality), the friendly attitude of locals towards retired expats, and the low cost of living were the defining factors for this rank.
