Bali, excellent beaches, restaurants and friendly

Very poor medical care though.

 

I have a friend who lives there that has to come to CM twice a year for tests that are just not available in Bali

Yes but

 

Read long term visa requires you to pay income taxes on worldwide income.  Negative if true.

I'm a Brit and when the pound is further ruined by Brexit, against the Baht, I'll probably learn Spanish and research a move to Panama, or Dominican Republic which are both ex-pat friendly - with Philippines Manilla Metro as the alternative, as they do have a branch of Bangkok bank there - my secondry bank - and pretty much a safe living environment to rent. No way would I move to Cambodia  - s**t hole - or Vietnam - another planet.

Bob is most definatley not " Trailer Trash" we have some lovely trailer parks in the UK and I am sure that this is the type he is alluding to....there is no Trailer trash in the UK, but I have seen plenty of trailer parks in the states where the rednecks live and they are definately Trailer Trash

    Country Dick has been there, done that, and would likely beg to differ...

Yes, of course, Dahling. That's the 'proper' way to say it. The Viets just don't know their own language, yet.

i'll play the devil's advocate...... first, the manager of the park can be crazy and make your life crazy (no, never lived there, but stayed at some when i did extensive traveling).....fines all the time, crazy rules, and they really own you on everything.   one place checked internet usage on each person, then banned people.  i'm not a fan of that.  then the people who live there.  10 kids in a trailer....one guy drinks all day....one guy talks to your wife all day...you get the idea.  i'd never do it.  if you want to leave, they may charge you a zillion months.  

 

I'm not a big fan of tiny homes, but more so than a trailer park.  or a nice townhome, not condo.  

 

florida has the most crazies anywhere.  needed to throw that in....

 

if i had to pick......i would start with San Antonio and a townhome.  

 

try to travel to places in Minnesota and Wisconsin....if you can handle the cold, might be a better quality of life.  my two cents....

I know a lot of TV programs and movies sometime depict mobile home communities as trashy.  However, the park I picked is 55 and over only (Yes, my wife meets the standard), no kids running around, lots of social activities in three clubhouses of which all have swimming pools, pool tables, hobby and craft rooms, card rooms, libraries, hot tubs, saunas tennis courts and shuffleboard courts.  Not to mention a very beautiful beach on the Atlantic Ocean less then a 10 minute drive away.  Here is a link to just one of several homes I'm looking at, note you can fish in the lake in it's back yard.  You might have to use a vpn set to a US location to open this link.   https://www.mhvillage.com/Mobile-Homes/Mobile-Home-For-Sale.php?key=2022624

Cambodia, Vietnam..

It sounds to me like any 3rd world environment will suit you just fine.

Please keep us posted.

Thanks.

I think it is a law anyone who leaves Thailand feeling angry must post once an hour on Thai Visa for 7 years.

Respect is in the amount not the fact of existence.
