The Philippines is included in the Best Places To Retire Abroad list by noted website, The Huffington Post. The citation for the Philippines says:
The average temperature in the Philippines is 78 degrees! And in the last four years, Manilla has become known as a great retirement community, far from typhoons and boasting an “American country living” feel, according to the New York Times.
Along with the Philippines, the eleven other countries that are Best To Retire To (I guess, aside from the United States as what the article is implying) are: Thailand, Panama, Austria, Italy, France, Malaysia, Ireland, Belize, Cambodia, Guatemala, and New Zealand.
