Top Asia attractions and retirement locations? George Town’s attractions include a dozen museums, jungle parks with secluded beaches and amusement parks. Expats get together regularly for club activities, healthcare is first-rate, and public transportation is modern and efficient. Another neighborhood is reminiscent of an old Malay village,” says Kathleen Peddicord, founder of Live and Invest Overseas. “Impressive British-colonial buildings serve the same functions as they did more than a century ago…Many of the dilapidated Chinese shophouses have been scrubbed, painted and renovated into attractive hotels, community centers, cafés, galleries, and private homes.
One of the largest caves in the world, and certainly the largest in Vietnam, is Hang Son Doong. Approximately three million years old, Hang Son Doong Cave is an incredible destination unlike anywhere else on the planet. The cave is enormous, and it is possible for dozens of people to camp within it at a time. Bright blue water pools are located in the cave, and a river runs through it. Lush greenery lines the walls, thanks to erosion that lets in beams of sunlight. The cave is ethereal, and guided tours are available to best explore this amazing landmark.
On the northern coast of Koh Samui is the famous Big Buddha shrine. Probably Samui’s most well known landmark, the 12-metre high golden Buddha can be seen from several kilometres away. Inside the surrounding temple are many different shrines and other smaller ornate Buddhas. There is also a small market selling a wide range of lucky charms and other souvenirs, alongside numerous food stalls. See even more info at Retirement Villages in Thailand.
After an $118 million refurb and rebranding job, the Singapore History Museum reopened as the National Museum of Singapore: the largest museum on the island. There are two main galleries: the Singapore History Gallery, which traces the history of Singapore from its beginnings in the fourteenth century to the present day and the Singapore Living Galleries, which focus on four lifestyle themes – food, fashion, film and photography. It’s worth a visit just for the building, an imposing neoclassical structure, complemented by modern glass additions. Shoehorning art and science into the same room and doing justice to both was always going to be a big risk. But by and large, the ArtScience Museum succeeds. Future World: Where Art Meets Science is a collaboration with Japanese art collective teamLab and features interactive experiences that are also perfect Instagram fodder.
What is a retirement village? Unlike in a care home, retirement village residents can buy an apartment on the site, can partly-buy, or even rent the property for a few months. Residents can bring their own furniture, decorate as they wish, and are free to have friends and family come to stay. This way, your friends & family can enjoy a ‘resort like’ vacation at your village. See more details on here.
