Retire in Thailand with income

Have you ever thought about retiring in Thailand? Most people think of the popular beaches like Pattaya or Phuket as the ideal place to live in Thailand, the downside of this is the cost of living in these tourist hot spots.

Let me introduce you to Ban Pong in the province of Ratchaburi. Ban Pong is 70km west of Bangkok, on the highway heading to Kanchanaburi. It is a small town of 100’000 people. As you enter the town, you pass under a sign proclaiming that Ban Pong is the “City of Nice People” and this is so very true.

The local culture is one that tourism has not affected. Despite so many wonderful tourist type things within the region, tourism has not passed through this quaint town.

Retiring in a town like Ban Pong allows you to immerse yourself in the “Real Thailand”, there is a farang expat community here, as well as a dozen farang teachers working in the local schools.
