Posted

There's something magical about the prospect of retiring and having the freedom to travel the world, doing whatever you want for the rest of your life. It's almost like a reward for all of your hard work throughout your life. Many people relocate to a different part of the world to live their days out once they retire, and it's usually a place that's a lot warmer and scenic than what they're used to. Take a look at these places to consider relocating to once you reach retirement age, if this is something you're thinking about.

Bulgaria

Bulgaria is the kind of place where you'd expect it to be run-down. In fact, it's the polar opposite. Bulgaria is a developing country that is gaining popularity among tourists due to its natural beauty and affordable cost of living. Many people are relocating to Bulgaria because house prices are ridiculously low and the weather is absolutely gorgeous 90% of the time.

The tourist season lasts about six months, from March to October, so you have six months of the year when there are no tourists around. Having said that, it is never overrun with tourists, so you can expect to live a peaceful and happy life even during tourist season.

Over the last ten years, there have been loads of new beach apartments built, or you could build your own home further into the countryside and enjoy many years of peace and tranquility.

Malaysia

One of the first things you'll notice when visiting Malaysia is the incredible modern architecture. The Petronas Towers are the world's most famous skyscrapers, with a pair of 88-story skyscrapers rising 452 meters above street level.

On the other hand, you can marvel at incredible Chinese-themed structures like the stunning Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion in George Town, Penang. If modern architecture is something you love alongside stunning beaches, a diverse culture and beautiful tourist spots, then Malaysia might be for you.

There are many areas of Malaysia you should explore, from bukit beruntung to taman desa, all of which have stunning architecture and surrounding scenery that you’ll absolutely love.

Canada

Canada is a slightly different type of location to consider. A place with a lot of history and a wide range of weather. In the summer, soak up the sun, and in the winter, snuggle up in your home when the snow falls! Moving to Canada, which is known as one of the friendliest countries on the planet, will make you feel right at home.

The country also provides universal healthcare, so you can rest assured that if you decide to relocate to this lovely country, you will be well taken care of!

Singapore

Singapore is a breathtakingly beautiful place. You can't go wrong with a multitude of beautiful buildings and sites to see if you're looking for a relaxing place to retire to. Singapore has one of the lowest crime rates in the world, so you can rest assured that you will be safer than ever.

At extremely low prices, you can purchase fully furnished, partially furnished, or even empty homes. It's a charming city-state with plenty of things to see and do, as well as the opportunity to learn about the history of this lovely location.
