Top Asia travel attractions and retirement locations
Top Asia attractions and retirement locations? This country, according to Peddicord, is “one of the most affordable places in the world to retire for an interesting and comfortable life.” A one-bedroom apartment in the center of Hanoi, according to Numbeo.com, will cost about $348; outside the center, that will cost you at least $100 less. Monthly Internet charges are about $10. Danang, Vung Tau, and Hanoi are Peddicord’s top picks, but she has a word of caution for anyone who considers access to healthcare important. She says that healthcare is excellent in Hanoi, but in Vung Tau, good care requires a two-hour drive to Ho Chi Minh City. And in Danang, getting good healthcare would require a flight to Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, or out of the country to Bangkok.
