Thai food is revered the world over for its harmonic balance of the five major flavors: salty, spicy, sweet, bitter and sour. Thai food is so delicious that after a week in Thailand eating anything but Thai food just doesn’t feel right. Fruit is fresh and abundant, and dishes are creative and highly edible. For good food there isn’t any place quite like Thailand.
7. Women Are Feminine And Genuine!
In the West women are often demanding and hot-headed with their words and actions. In Thailand, women are still raised to be demure and elegant. Western men find it quite appealing to see the majority of women in a role that is pleasing and calming to any man lucky enough to retire in Thailand!
8. Happiness Is Paramount!
Thailand is a place where to be happy is to be doing your job. There’s a huge amount of tolerance for every person so long as they are content with themselves and their life path. Foreigners are no exception, and people will be genuinely glad to see you happy and enjoying yourself while you retire in Thailand.
9. Perfect Weather!
Thailand has two seasons: wet and dry. There’s really no such thing as bad weather. It is simply hot or hot and wet. The weather makes it perfect for Westerners who are tired of being wet and cold in the wintertime to retire in Thailand.
Thailand truly means freedom. Ask any traveler and they will tell you their time in Thailand was not only relaxing, but it was also liberating. Why deny yourself the chance to be who you are, among elegant and gentle people who show you the utmost consideration and respect? The time is now to start planning to retire in Thailand.
