35 Kuala Lumpur World No 4 Best Retire Heaven 4. Malaysia. In Malaysia, you can live quite comfortably. For instance, you can rent a sea-view apartment on Penang Island for $1,000 a month. Plus, Malaysia has a unique retirement benefit called the My Second Home program, which is open to all foreigners who want to retire to one of Asias best-value destinations, International Living said. And while it might not seem so, the editors said Malaysia is also an easy place in which to integrate. Youll find plenty of locals who want to practice their English-speaking skills. And you can catch a feature movie in English for $4. And theres a good infrastructure in place for retirees. Theres Internet access, quality roads and cell phone coverage, among other must- haves for ex-pats. Prescher had this advice for retirees and would-be retirees who want to retire abroad. Make sure you spend as much time on the ground in the country to which you plan to retire. Vacationing in a country is much different from living there. When you vacation somewhere, you never really have to open a bank account or order phone service. Instead, he suggests renting a place in your retirement haven. retirement-havens-2012-01-19 35
