It is estimated that 3.3 million baby boomers will retire abroad in the near coming years. For years, annual surveys published in The New York Times and other mainstream media outlets show that countries such as Mexico, Uruguay, Panama, Thailand and the Philippines are the best retirement destinations in the world. The pros and cons of these countries are usually categorised by the cost of living, distance from the US, and the availability of large shopping malls selling familiar items and American comfort food.More serious reviews on the subject often delve into each country’s economic health, availability and quality of healthcare, and other factors that are of grave concern for folks who are in (or are reaching) their golden years. As a retiree myself, I find these economic factors more interesting, as living on a fixed income is an art in itself, with the global cost of living rising right along with sun, each and every day. Based on my decade-long retirement here in the capital, here are my own list of pros and cons for any potential retiree to consider, starting with my assumption that Nepal is the best place in the world to retire in.
