A company called Emigrate UK that describes itself at the number one emigration advice site in the UK has published a report suggesting that the male aging population of the UK should be encouraged to move to Thailand, and in particular Pattayya that they say has “well-publicized creature comforts provided by youthful females happy to help in exchange for security”.
The report reads “The southeast Asian country of Thailand has long been a retirement haven for older expats due to its lack of freezing weather and low cost of living, but its slightly seedy reputation is perhaps less deserved than many think.
Many single, male retirees see emigrating to Thailand as a tropical dream, and many head to Pattaya for its well-publicised creature comforts provided by youthful females happy to help in exchange for security. According to local Thai authorities, the male expat 65+ age group outnumbers Pattaya’s nationals of similar ages, with more arriving every year.
It seems that retirees from the West are now flatly refusing to live out their old age in a way considered suitable by their adult children, most of whom have little involvement with their elderly parents’ lives. Widowers and divorced pensioners in particular seem to have much to gain by emigrating to a country where they can find female companionship in addition to like-minded migrants with whom to socialise.
Perhaps European government should encourage their older nationals to leave, thus saving taxpayer money on their upkeep, with several European MPs already suggesting the idea and a group of Scandinavian pensioners already living it. Pattaya is now the home of a entire retirement complex put together by expats from Scandinavia, all of whom are having a great time at far less cost than in their home countries.”
The Emigrate UK website offers daily updates in emigration matters and immigration news and acts as a guide to a growing number of destinations and is “jam packed with useful stuff for people thinking of emigrating”. They offer advice on worldwide emigration, immigration, visa types, international moving/removals, pet transfer, pension transfers QROPS, property aboard, recruitment, currency transfers, foreign banking and advice on the laws of emigration.
