Retire at Chiang Mai on 550 USD per month only

Helping people retire Affordably, Quickly and Properly to Chiang Mai and Cebu and Siem Reap is the what we do.

We have expanded our services to include Cebu, Philippines and Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Chiang Mai, Thailand and Cebu, Philippines are the two most popular retirement destinations in all of South East Asia, and we believe Siem Reap, Cambodia will overtake both Cebu and Chiang Mai.

Try one or try them all for a week or a month and then decide which you like best. Better to do that than get yourself into a long term rental contract or buying a condo and furniture and discovering you may have preferred another retirement destination more.

Our new website provides information about Philippines and Cebu in particular and we will soon have staff on hand helping clients retire to Cebu providing visa advice, accommodations and more..

Our new website provides information about Cambodia and Siem Reap in particular and this is now the location of our "Head Office".

As the cost of visiting Philippines, Thailand or Cambodia is low we encourage our clients and website visitors to visit several countries and stay for a week up to a month and then decide which location they prefer the best.

Some of our clients have been here before and know the city and ask us to find them accommodations that meet their budget and needs and also to provide them with advice about living here in retirement.

So far ALL of our clients who have come here to check out Chiang Mai as a retirement destination have ALL retired here or are in the process of coming here to retire.

We provide a complete service that no one else offers.

And we are proud to say that Our Way Works.

6 Good Reasons to become a Client:

1/ Accommodations:

Would you rather come here and have this 42 sq. m. condo ready and waiting for you when you arrive.

Like new condo comes with a large fridge, cooking unit, microwave, 32" lcd tv, dvd player, surround sound and bathroom with bathtub/shower with cable tv, wireless internet, and American breakfasts all included.

2/ Retirement Advice:

Would you rather come here uncertain as to how to live here
Would you rather come here and know ALL that you want to know within 2 days of arriving here and knowing that you did everything right in coming here from visa, transportation, medical, what to bring, what to buy.

The day after you arrival we have an Orientation Day where you will learn more than people who have been here for 6 months who are non clients.

3/ Other Advice:

Would you rather come here and hit the bars and spend on bar tabs, bar fines, ladies drinks only to find out the ladies in the bars have boyfriends or husbands and that they are not interested in you.
Would you rather come here and meet some lovely ladies who are sincere and want to meet foreign men who are planning on staying here.
4/ Decide Between 3 Great Retirement Destinations in South East Asia (Chiang Mai, Siem Reap and Cebu):

A choice of 3 great places to retire. Try one or more and then decide.

5/ Tours:

We are the first and largest retirement service for Chiang Mai, Thailand. The only service that provides retirement services with staff on hand in more than one Asian country. And only retirement service that has a comprehensive e-book that covers off all the important topics of retiring to Thailand.

Although we have retirement websites for Chiang Mai, Thailand, and Siem Reap, Cambodia and Cebu, Philippines our first choice as a retirement destination is Siem Reap, Cambodia for most clients.


Many reasons including visa, easier and cost less to find Cambodian g/f or wife for those men who are interested as well as nicer, less crowded beaches that are easy to get to in southern Cambodia from Siem Reap.

In some cases Chiang Mai, Thailand may be a retirement destination and we explain why to our clients.

We no longer recommend Cebu, Philippines as a retirement destination as we feel that Thailand and Cambodia are much better.

Our service enables you to get the facts as to which retirement location is best for you, and enables you to make the move properly and hassle free starting from what to do in your home country, visa, transportation savings, accommodation savings and input on g/f and wife for those that are interested.

Our Service makes it easy for you.. and It Works !

From: Jack T. (Sydney, Australia)

G'Day Wan and George. For the benefit of your visitors who are considering retiring to Chiang Mai I am writing these following several paragraphs.

I too sat at the computer and checked into everything I could about retiring to Chiang Mai similar to what George had done before he moved to Chiang Mai and I thought I knew all that I needed to know. I forwarded an e-mail to Retire-on-550 and explained this to them and that I would contact them after my arrival if I needed anything, and that I enjoyed their website which added many insights into life in Chiang Mai.

George made me the following proposition.

I would explain to him what my plans were in moving to Chiang Mai and where I would live and other questions he had ready and that he would look over my replies. If he wasn't able to save me any money on the move he would say so but if he could save me more than $2,000 US that I would pay Retire-on-550 their fee.

Well cocky SOB that I am I figured that I would show them how well I had done my research and also that I had nothing to lose.

Now that I have arrived in Chiang Mai and settled in I have to admit that I paid the fee to Retire-on-550, paid it willingly and gratefully and I will acknowledge that they saved me much more than I expected.

There were many money savings tips put forward to me by George and Wan and I went with most of their recommendations. I had planned on obtaining my Retirement Visa in Chiang Mai and that proved to be a big mistake. I thought I found an inexpensive place to stay and it proved to be more costly than what I needed and also the location was not as good as what Wan secured for me. There is more but I just want to thank Wan and George once again for all of their help.
