Best Retirement Options: Ecuador, Panama, Malaysia

The MarketWatch web site (connected to the Wall Street Journal) provides a list of top international retirement destination and places Malaysia in the 3rd spot, after Ecuador and Panama.

The article notes the benefits of Malaysia as

  • Good and reasonably priced health care
  • English as the unofficial “first language” (it is a bit of a stretch to claim this, in my opinion, but you can get by in English).
  • Good weather with beaches, islands and jungles to enjoy.
  • Good food
  • Affordable prices

I would add the MM2H visa and the ability to buy property.

The list is packed with Central and South American options along with 2 in Europe and 2 in Asia. Rounding out the top 10 are: Mexico, Costa Rica, Uruguay, Colombia, Spain, Thailand and Malta.
