HCM CITY Việt Nam is included in the top 7 cheapest countries for retirees, with its more than 3,000km of coastline.
Việt Nam is one of the best beach destinations in the world for retirees this year, according to International Living’s report, an Ireland-based publishing company that writes about retiring overseas, and Panama-based travel magazine Live and Invest Overseas.
Cửa Đại Beach in the central city of Hội An, Nha Trang Beach in Khánh Hòa Province, and Long Beach in Kiên Giang Province’s Phú Quốc Island are the three most affordable beaches on earth, according to Travel Bird, a Netherlands-based travel site.
For retirees looking for a place for long-term stays at a lower cost of living, Việt Nam is a dream retirement destination with many places where a couple can live for less than $1,000 a month.
Panama tops the list this year, followed by Portugal and Costa Rica. The rest of the top 10 are Indonesia, Malaysia, Ecuador, Thailand, Brazil and Spain. -- VNS
