I don't agree. I get exactly where he's coming from. We're kept on too short leashes here. There are reasons to reject Thailand even if financial qualified for now. 

Your still here even after countless reject Thailand posts just like so many others . He specifically said it was immigration 

I dont give a rats about the failures that lied and got the boot and the endless noise and OP if he is smart will ignore it to.

So why no more info about the lack of modern amenities?

 

You comment about loads of Latin American countries you've never visited ( and probably never will if you're honest ) but no input about somewhere you have been, very perculiar...

I can discuss the modernity of various Latin American destinations on the other thread. I was just curious if the O.P. had considered anywhere outside of Asean as other places seem to meet his needs even better than Cambodia or Laos. Especially around HEALTH CARE as he's getting older. 

 

As I've said before elsewhere there is no right or wrong expat destination choice for everyone. I loved my visit to Luang Prabang but it's not for me as a place to live. If that's my feeling and it is, that's only about me. Others that think it may be for them should research it and perhaps visit there themselves. I visited there only for tourism and never had an ounce of interest in ever living in Laos, never have, and never will.

It doesn't really matter. I don't want to live there. The O.P. on the other hand probably does want to live there. I am not suggesting I'm an authority on the place except that visiting there it didn't even cross my mind that I'd ever want to live there.

If it does n't really matter why even bother to post it then? bit of a pintless exercise really.

 

I'm interested in LP and would like to know why it's not modern but you're unwilling to share the info, that's bad form...

This is an internet discussion forum. I'm not here to be prosecuted as if this is a court of law for not posting in the exact way that pleases you or any other member. Do your own research. Go there! You really should go there. It's at least a wonderful place to visit. A hint to you in the OP that said the medical care there is awful. That's a measure of modernity for you. Decent health care or not. Needing to be evacuated or not.

You have plenty to say about Latin America, go there! you really should go there.

 

Health care does not concern me, i'm not old and crusty yet and have good coverage ( BUPA gold ).

 

Thanks for your input.

I have travelled all over the world including numerous nations in Latin America. This thread is indeed not about Latin America. I was only wondering if the OP was only limiting his consideration to Cambodia and Laos and if so, why exactly.

If health care doesn't concern you, great.

Everyone has different priorities. 

It does concern the OP as he posted about it and he realizes correctly that the health care level in both Cambodia and Laos is pretty terrible.

Why were you wondering if OP was only interested in Cambodia or Loas, it's clearly stated in the OP that's his 2 choices, it's really not that difficult to understand, is it?

Because I read about his objections to what's happened in Thailand and I read that he's concerned about the horrible health care systems in Cambodia and Laos. Which especially older people SHOULD be concerned about! So I was wondering about the logic about moving in old age to any country including those he listed with such poor health care systems. Also that he wants to avoid dealing with immigration offices. Don't know about the Laos system but I think it's harder than Cambodia, and it's true Cambodia is very easy for retirees (massively more so than Thailand) but that can change tomorrow or next year, and neither is offering (or will likely ever offer) permanent residency based on retirement status. With permanent residency it's like having a lifetime "Elite" card but no address reports, visa runs, extensions, etc.

So now you’re telling him where he should or should not move to?
