You have to contend with Philippine immigration laws in going about with living in the Philippines. It’s not difficult though. The Philippine Retirement Authority has the mandate to make the life of expatriates in the country conducive.
If living in the Philippines hits your mind, you could retire rich close to natural, unique and peculiar lures and wonders. The cost of living is VERY CHEAP.
If you’re single, living in the Philippines can cost you anywhere in the P45,000-80,000 ($1,046-1,860) range. I can just imagine that if I were to stay in Manila as an expatriate, $1,046/month can afford me a very comfortable living… and I can still tour around once or twice.
So at $1,395… you can really live rich! And at $1,860… you can have a very comfortable life with a family, and still live rich. So, how can you beat that?
