Pros/Cons living in Indo

Recommended Posts

It was my teenage dream to live in Asia.

2003 - 2018 : Pattaya, Thailand. 

2018 - ? : Cebu, Philippines. 

I've only been to Phil, Indo, and Viet as a tourist so I know nothing except I enjoyed myself in all places, multiple times each. 

I am age 45 and work online with steady income. 

What are the Pros/Cons living in Indo? I've been to Bali twice and enjoyed the food, music, pussy, and beaches. I found the locals to be very welcoming. I stayed in the Sanur area. 

Thanks/Terima Kasih.

Hi Donny !

Just my 5 cents after 1 year here, time shared 70% Bali and 30% East Java, 40 km south of Banyuwangi, pure jungle.

Consider also I am 65, retired, so my expectations and requirements are probably a bit different from yours.

For me to live in, only Bali can be considered. And yes, as you I live in Sanur, because of it being quiete. Kuta madness is not for me anymore, but still only half hour away if need.

All the rest of Indo main problem is religion (VERY loud) and horrible traffic in the cities.

Have a look at my thread in the Indo section, maybe you can pick some info.

In your position I would also have a deeper look at Vietnam !

Before i left Thailand in 2016 i looked at many places to go and live one was Shenzhen in China which worked out too costly.

I did look at Cambodia its so much easier to work and sort out visa's to work and live there long term.

Many have left Thailand and moved on to Cambodia.

I visited Cambodia mid 90's. It was a shithole.

The cowboy, wild west part was fun but sure a bit risky.

Never went back, to I guess things have changed. But anyway, I need the sea, so besides Sihanoukville who seems now to be a Chinese colony, there is not much.

To me Sihanoukville seams to be one of them places that never really happened and didn't grow that much with tourism.

It seams to me that many have moved on to Phnom Penh, again my my kind of place to live so i decided to head back to the uk.

Now married to a Thai and nearly hitting 50 I'm not in the same position as before.

sihanoukville has grown out of all recognition , its very very busy .

trouble is its all chinese .

local cambodians and western expats and holiday makers are abandoning sihanoukville as more and more chinese pour in .

massive chinese investment in the town and its being turned in to a gambling mecca for the chinese .

casinos and hotels being built a plenty in the town .

the beaches are heaving with chinese .

The thing is with the chinese is all the excursions trips, holiday, meals, is all paid up in China before they even step into Thailand.

The only money that comes into Thailand is the basic cost and all the profits stay in China.
