Best Places to Retire #9: Georgetown, Malaysia
Georgetown is the capital of the beautiful Island of Penang, which is located close to the Thai/Malay border. One of the biggest draws of Georgetown is the food, with tourists and residents really spoilt for choice. Not only is the food varied and delicious, it is also very, very affordable. Healthcare in Georgetown is also very affordable and of a high standard. There is also plenty of opportunity for entertainment and shopping. Another benefit is that Penang is a very cosmopolitan Island, and English is widely spoken. You can live here quite comfortably with all you could need for around $1,500 a month.
