Why we chose to retire to chiang mai

Live your dream in a peaceful and safe environment where you are respected for your Seniority, with almost no Covid risk or restrictions

It was either too expensive or too crappy

We spent 6 months travelling around Europe looking for greener pastures. We were either shocked at how expensive countries like Spain, Portugal and Austria had become or really dissapointed in the cheaper countries like Bulgaria and Romania.

The primary reason for retiring in Chiang Mai was quality of life. We had become unhappy with life in England and looked for greener pastures.

We searched around the world, and in our opinion we found Africa too dangerous, America and Europe too expensive and unfriendly, South America too unstable, the Middle East to volitile. Australia and New Zealand were options, but generally expensive.

We settled for Asia, which was the most appealing. In Asia, we were spoilt for choice. There are so many fantastic options like Japan, Hong Kong and Singapore. However these are both expensive, and difficult to retire to.

We finally decided on Thailand, because it was easy, inexpensive, safe, great weather and the quality of life excellent.

The locals respect senior citizens, are happy and friendly, and healthcare in first world class.


The Perfect Surrounding

Chiang Mai has a nice mix of modern, traditional teak wooden houses, secure villages or condo’s to choose from.

We love that we are surrounded by mountains so we can leave our modern city and a short half hour drive be in the mountainis countryside
