*AUTHOR’S NOTE – My husband and I will be retiring soon, and we have decided to look around for a more relaxing and affordable retirement place outside of the US. As I researched through the internet, magazines and literatures, the Philippines caught my attention. This little country seemed to be the best place to retire to. The cost of living is affordable for us, and we love its tropical climate, plus the fact that it’s an English-speaking country and the people are American-friendly. We have agreed – our choice for our retirement is the Philippines! Now my goal is to study and analyze the best places in the Philippines where a retired American couple can spend their future retirement. I am sharing my researches for our planned retirement with you, and hope that my posts can also help you plan yours!
COST OF LIVING: LOS ANGELES vs. MANILA
