全球十大退休地
10 Best Places To Retire In The World.
任何“全球十大退休地”清单都是主观的
Any list of the 10 best places to retire in the world has to be subjective.
你可以把克罗地亚列入全球十大退休地
You could think that Croatia is one of the 10 best places to retire in the world and
但邻居指不定会以为你疯了
your neighbor might think you’re nuts.
克罗地亚?
Croatia?
那边不是有战争什么的吗?
Aren’t they having a war of some kind over there?
但如果考虑多方因素 如生活成本 气候
However, if you apply factors such as the cost of living, the climate,
住房 税收 卫生保健 娱乐消遣
housing, taxes, health care, and recreation,
列出相对合理的“全球十大退休地”清单
it’s possible to come up with a list of the 10 best places
也不是没有可能
to retire in the world that is reasonably valid.
1. 巴拿马
1: Panama.
巴拿马很可能是全球最佳退休地
It’s possible that Panama might be the best place in the world to retire.
生活成本低 当地人很友善 天气也相当好
The cost of living is very low, the people are friendly, the weather is reasonably good
在巴拿马 你可以欣赏和体验各种有趣的东西
and the country offers a variety of interesting things to do and see.
巴拿马最棒的就是它的国土面积
One of the best things about Panama is it size.
只有约78200平方千米比南卡罗来纳州还稍小
It is just 30,193 sq. mi., making it slightly smaller than South Carolina.
该国拥有几所现代化医院不对外国收入征税
The country has several modern hospitals, levies no taxes on foreign income and has
针对退休人员 还提供有丰厚津贴

3. 泰国

美国退休人员喜欢巴拿马的原因之一就是

它和美国很相似——只是语言不同而已
much different from the US – there is just a different language.
除此之外 生活在巴拿马还是美国并没多少区别
Beyond that, people are much the same as they are here.
这样一比较 泰国则是满满的异国情调了
In contrast, Thailand is an exotic country,

4. 阿根廷
4: Argentina.
