“Retiring to the Philippines: The Best Move You Will Ever Make!”
By: Gary McMurrain
I don’t have much knowledge or experience with the Philippines. I found this quick read to be a wonderful first introduction to the possibilities of the Philippines being a great destination to move abroad. Gary does a fantastic job of highlighting the advantages and what he likes about living there. Things like language, a lower cost of living, medical care, cuisine and community activities. I do wish he would also address any potential negatives or struggles he has experienced while there. I feel like the book scratches the surface and doesn’t go into a ton of details but if the Philippines are on your list of potential expat destinations, I would definitely give this a read.
PS – I also discovered that Gary has written additional books and I plan to read and review in the future as well. Their titles are as follows:
The Expat Guide to Doing Business in the Philippines
The Expat Guide to Visas for the Philippines
Tales of the Expat Life in the Philippines
