Top Asia travel attractions and retirement villages? The cost of living in the Philippines is one of the lowest in the world—even lower than in Vietnam, according to Peddicord. In the “hip” university town of Dumaguete where 4,000 expats live (and some scuba dive), renting a one-bedroom apartment costs just over $238 per month, according to Numbeo.com, or you can buy one for about $55 per square foot. The tropical island of Cebu is another choice for retirees, and Makati, a safe part of Manila, has access to everything a retiree would want—good shopping, excellent healthcare, proximity to beaches and outdoor activities plus the expected big-city cultural features. Makati is also considered an excellent market for real estate investment.
The Cu Chi Tunnels are an immense network of connecting underground tunnels located about 40 km northwest of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). The tunnels were used by Viet Cong guerrillas as hiding spots during the Vietnam War, and were the base of operations for the T?t Offensive in 1968. The tunnels have become a popular tourist attraction, and visitors are invited to crawl around in the safer parts of the tunnel system.
Although Samui has several waterfalls, the two Na Muang waterfalls are probably the most picturesque. The name Na Muang refers to the massive purple rocks at the waterfalls. Rocks and tree roots form a natural staircase that leads to the base of Na Muang 1. A large natural pool sits under the waterfall. A 10-minute walk further up the mountain leads to Samui’s most beautiful waterfall, Na Muang 2. Read more info at Retirement Villages in Philippines.

What is a retirement village? Unlike in a care home, retirement village residents can buy an apartment on the site, can partly-buy, or even rent the property for a few months. Residents can bring their own furniture, decorate as they wish, and are free to have friends and family come to stay. This way, your friends & family can enjoy a ‘resort like’ vacation at your village. Read even more information at this website.
