No 1. retirement destination in Asia. By 2022 Annual Global Retirement Index

Thailand Ranked No. 1 Destination in Asia

“International Living” recently announced its Annual Global Retirement Index (2022 Edition) and Thailand was recognized as the number 1 retirement destination in Asia!

The assessment looks at quality of life in a country for expatriate retirees, getting information from literally hundreds of local sources around the world.

Here are some reasons why Thailand was named the preferred retirement destination in Asia.


Thailand’s Popularity

Housing: it’s size, cost, and location.  A large 1-bedroom apartment, part of a relatively new building, in a central area of Bangkok, can be compared to similar properties in the main countries from which retirees are coming: the U.K., Western Europe, Australia, the U.S. India and more.  Bangkok averages one third to one tenth of the cost of these other cities; even less in popular, provincial cities.


Facilities-related benefits

The typical Bangkok apartment, in an average price range, has serviced facilities such as a reception, 24-hour security, a swimming pool, and a good gym/ club house area.    A central, upmarket area will be near shopping malls and supermarkets, with literally a hundred restaurants within a 10-minute walk, a good number of them western.   Lastly, these areas are safe, even late at night.    Water, electricity, sewerage, internet, and other infrastructure are reliable and readily accessible.


Cost of living

Food and personal care are often significantly cheaper than “at home” –for example 60% less compared to the United Kingdom or United States.   Similarly, other purchases, such as clothing or household goods are often far less expensive.  Thailand is also famous for its many small local restaurants and delicious street food, which will give you a great meal for just USD 1 or 2.


Transport Hub

Bangkok traffic is infamous.   However, there are well-connected public transport routes through city buses, BTS sky train, and MRT underground train.   The train systems in Bangkok are widespread, fast, reliable, immaculately clean and cost only USD 1 to 2.   Nationally, there is an excellent air network to 30 or 40 provincial centres and resorts, plus inexpensive bus services, but otherwise travel requires a car or affordable private limousines.   Bangkok has two international airports and is centrally placed in South-East Asia, so quick trips abroad are easy and inexpensive.



Thailand’s healthcare rates highly, with several large, western hospitals equipped with English speaking staff and overseas trained specialists.  It also comes at a cost a quarter to a tenth of that in a country such as the U.S.A.



Most expatriates speak little Thai, but in the main cities, many locals can speak and understand some English. There are large expatriate communities for retirees from all over the world, providing friendly advice and a point of reference.  Beyond the city’s concrete jungle, there’s a host of outdoor recreation activities including water sports, private golf clubs, and much more. For entertainment, there are plush theatres with all the latest original soundtrack movies, relaxing cafes & trendy restaurants, among a host of options.

No. 1 Destination in Asia retirement visa in Thailand


Are you considering exploring Thailand as your retirement option?

There are two pathways to retire to Thailand.  The first is a conventional retirement visa.  You must be over 50 years of age, in good health (enough to be covered by a private medical insurance) and meet requirements for income or assets in a Thai bank account.  The validity is for 1 year, with annual renewals, but the application must be in person at the immigration office, with the requisite paperwork.  Non-Thai residents must also check in person with immigration once every 3 months.

The second option is called the Thailand Elite Visa Program. Thailand Elite is a long-term residency visa given to Thailand Elite membership. The Thailand Elite Privilege Card members are authorized by a ‘Privilege Entry PE’ Visa, allowing the applicant residency in Thailand from 5 to 20 years, with membership costing from USD 15,700 to USD 52,270, depending on the type of membership chosen. The Thailand Elite Visa offers very significant advantages.


  • Thailand Elite Visa is valid for 5 to 20 years and the visa is automatically renewed annually.  There is no need to exit the country and the member can stay 20 years continuously in the country if they wish.
  • The 90-day immigration check is streamlined and need not be in person, unlike the standard visa.
  • As a Thailand Elite Card Holder, Thai Elite personnel will meet you at the airport to fast-track your immigration queue, as well as receiving other conveniences.
  • A complimentary VIP limousine is offered throughout the year for pick up-drop off between your destination and the airport.
  • There are membership options for individuals, couples, and families to live in Thailand comfortably.
  • There are also other benefits – from discounts at various golf clubs, shops and spas, to a concierge to help with any government or administrative applications
  • Thailand Elite members also have special access to open a Thai bank account and obtain a driver’s license.
  • The best part – saving your time and having a stress-free stay in the Kingdom.
