Best Country in Asia to Live?

Summing up my other posts comparing which is the best country in Asia to live. South East Asia that is, assuming you want to get away from boring westernized developed countries. Overall those three are pretty similar and all great fun, but there are some major differences that make each different. Choosing which one is best for you can’t really be done with research, you need to visit them yourself and then decide.  I hope to visit Vietnam soon to add some content on that. Best...

Women – Philippines vs Thailand vs Cambodia

It can be surprising how different the women in the Philippines, Thailand and Cambodia are. Actually there are two that are polar opposites and one that is kind of in the middle. I’m not talking about looks because that’s subjective and everyone has different tastes for Asian girls.  I personally don’t find Thais that attractive, however most guys would rate Thai women the hottest of the three.

Philippines Visas In the Philippines you only need to leave the country once every 3 years (recently that was increased from 18 months). Overall it costs me a little over $40/month on average on visas to stay in the Philippines. There are some minor annoyances like having to go into...

Costs – Philippines vs Thailand vs Cambodia

I know more about the cost of living in the Philippines having spent most of my time there, but I also lived in Cambodia and Thailand for a while. On top of that I have asked 5000 questions on forums about the three as research so I will try to compare some of the differences. Three of the essentials: Cost of Living – Breakdown If I was living long term in each of these three countries my cost of living would be around $800 in Cambodia,...
