    These sound very tempting BUT - 21 years ago I made the move to Hungary. Turns out today it is the safest most beautiful and least expensive place to live. It is in the heart of Europe if you want to get in your car and travel - go to the countryside to buy from farmers - fruits, vegetables, raw milk and milk products and even meat. I had no choice - when I figured my style of living on my $1000 retirement budget - it would have been a sad fact anywhere. Cashed in my 401K and even with the penalty for early withdrawal - it bought me a 1000 sq ft downtown apartment with high ceilings and lots of windows. By now, I've become a dual citizen which means free domestic travel and medical insurance for under $40/month ALL INCLUSIVE. Can't tell you how relieved I am not having to worry about ending up on the streets for my old age. Now there is also a country house and a vineyard. Was a realtor in NC so if you have questions - please feel free to ask. I'm retired and would love to help anyone else who wants to enjoy their golden years.

    Hungary always attracted me with so many of their famouse sports star etc and recently seen the interview of their
    Prime mininister on the BBC regarding Muslims imigrant etc..which makes it more atractive with appreciations..Now that I read Ella Stern comments ...dreams of a retirement really makes heart beat faster Lol

    No place is more diverse, safe, unbiase and cheap than in southeast asia. Except Singapore. Singapore is THE best country to earn a living in asia but not for retirement. It is among the worlds' most expensive cost of living.

    @CID Core... You're soo amusing, DUDE! Claiming 30 yrs in Davao City with 5 businesses going on. Don't give me that piece of crap, only DDS and TABOGOs believe in that. Lay off the SHABU and give up that trying to think gig, Dude, you weren't meant for it. Now put the phone away and get back to BURIKAT sara's burikat harem and enjoy her hospitality. I hope you get std or hiv.

    I have lived in France for the last 15 years; France is the biggest country in Europe in terms of land area; France is not at all expensive; we have 3 mountain ranges ans two oceans and about 11,000 miles of coastline if you want to live on the water. If you are not at least conversant in French, I don't think you would be happy here though.
