Laos or Cambodia - where would you relocate to?

Recommended Posts

I think a lot would depend on where you live in Thailand, as simon43 says living in Isaan Laos would be his better option ie. being able to easily visit any friends/family back in Isaan, with me being in Sattahip, Cambodia I think would be the better option allowing my wife/me to visit her family here in Sattahip fairly easily, but it appears you have no wife so you can easily check out each country, this is purely my opinion as I have never visited either country  Laos or Cambodia, best of luck either way!

Yes, I'm fully aware of this and intend to get that extra year anyway.  I'm trying to plan well in advance of September 2020, because I'll need to make trips to check out 'on the ground' prior to my Elite visa expiry.

It may be worth obtaining recent editions of "The Rough Guide" or "Lonely Planet". Perhaps information that you dont know about. I used one last year before planning a trip to Vietnam. Invaluable as it was my 1st trip there. Cost 990 baht from a book store but probably far cheaper from Amazon or similar. I think Cambodia in particular still has a lot of UXB s around so dont wander off the beaten track.

Have you ruled out Latin America? With 100K monthly income you are eligible for permanent residency (taking from instant to five years) in a number of countries there including one or more first world ones and some of them allow buy in to their national health care systems and have surprising high level health care especially in cities. There would be an earlier stage hassle of getting into their systems but once you have permanent residency, you're set. 

 

Within the context of Laos vs. Cambodia, it seems to me you've already answered your own question. You like Luang Prabang already. So do I but I can't imagine living there.

Like I said I've been there and I just wasn't feeling it as a place I would consider living. Perhaps not modern enough for my tastes and needs.

You should consider Antartica as an option I here the cost of living there is really low. It’s probably a little colder than Columbia though.

You have 100k a month but immigration is annoying you so you will dump Thailand and flee to other countries ..why? makes no sense.. Sounds like the bashers got into your head, They don't qualify but you do..don't let them drag you down to there level of loser!
