The first main objective of the Retire Asia site
is to provide an easy to follow guide showing the positive as well as some of the
negative aspects of living in a foreign country, particularly an Asian one, with
the different way of life, beliefs, customs and laws; in other words the
cultural differences. Click on any
Asian country for visitor information.
Where other sites provide general facts and sometimes masses of information, but
often from an impersonal or detached perspective, Retire Asia tries
to be a little different, in that it offers not only useful background information, but
where possible reflects personal experiences and real life situations.
There are many popular places in
South or Southeast Asia where foreign residents choose to settle for one reason or another.
We go into some detail regarding Laos and
Vientiane the capital of the
Lao PDR. To a lesser degree Thailand's second city Chiangmai
and the islands of Bali (Indonesia)
Other locations include the Philippines and Malaysia.

Stock market trading, Forex and online marketing with a
website or using Google Adwords are just a few. Bear in mind that
information that teaches or helps you earn money has intrinsic value. It is
rarely free. Why should it be? The secret is to pay the right price for such
information – neither too much nor too little. There really is 'no free
lunch'. Put good information to use and you will always recoup your
initial outlay. From then on, you will be in profit, whether it's from
investing in the forex or stock markets, or online selling.
Promotion of third party products and services
On the above, we don't
mind admitting we promote certain products and services from which we may
derive a benefit or commission through the use of an 'affiliate link'. We
only promote vendors who we believe are reliable and have a full, no-quibble
money back guarantee of satisfaction. Not everyone who buys products,
services or training courses online will find that what they receive is
quite what they were hoping for or expected; or that a certain style of
training is to their taste; or if the product they buy simply does not
perform according to the vendor's claims.
Retire Asia aims to provide an ever-expanding source of current and useful information about destinations, as well as opportunities for those planning to reside in Asia, working or retired,
and to earn extra income. One of the advantages of the technological era we find ourselves in, is of course the internet itself. Access to it is available almost everywhere now, and new ways of earning money while living abroad, abound. But beware of "wolves in sheep's clothing", and read our
scams and rip-offs.
Not everything is what it appears to be, especially on the
world wide web.
Another possibly new career in several locations is
teaching English to the local people, both young and old. There is a growing need in many developing countries to learn English as a second language. The ability to read, write and speak English fluently, is a definite asset for all.

On a similar note about
language, you will learn to adapt to the culture in your new country much
and gain a deeper understanding of the local people if you can converse with
them in their
own language. Why not start learning before you move?
A relatively new area of
interest for the private investor and speculator, and additional
potential sources of income, are the bullion, forex
and stock markets and we have

Another way to earn extra income is by renting out your
home or second home, especially if you spend several months each year in
