If u are satisfied   with the Thai retirement visa procedures all together then by all means simply stay.

This thread is more for folks unhappy with these procedures looking at other destinations visa deal offers elsewhere.

The retirement extension here works well for me and I find it easy and cheap.

 

But that isnt to say that I wouldn't want to live elsewhere, if elsewhere offered a similar easy retirement visa and similar overall costs of living (tax included). But as far as I know elsewhere doesnt. If anyone does know of somewhere that is a similar then I would like to hear about it.

I prefer 'Boss' or 'Sir' to 'Farang'.

Just a personal choice you understand.

Yea so polite and nice people

 

Sir, Madam everywhere - and not faking it, but genuinely sweet human beings.  

 

Hell my Thai gf doesn't get half as nice treatment even in Thailand. And she doesn't fit any bit of the profile that isn't desirable (ie tattoos, dark skin, esaan)

I Think the polite Thais often will say to me Mr and not farang. Duhh

Filipinos will always  call me Sir.

The advantage is that 99% of the Filipinos can than continue the conversation in perfect English.

Portugal would get my vote over Spain. In fact all other things being equal (which they arent) I would be in Portugal right now.

Why would Portugal be better than Spain?

Portugal is nice i like the algarve etc but Spain all together  i think offers more.

Actually Sri Lanka would be a reasonable alternative for me, though probably not Colombo the capital. The local food is fantastic: streets ahead of Thai food. The people are nice and speak a fair bit of English. The scenery is great and it has hill stations which for me at least offer a much more satisfactory climate than anywhere in Thailand. It is much less touristy than Thailand, and much less busy generally.

 

Long-term retirement visa options are not so good though.
