    Dear BHW member

    i live in morocco, life here is cheap, for $1.000 / month you can get a good life style, i live with $2.000 / month like a king.

    But problem here is Money, you can not transfer money to foreign country, you need agreement, it take time and lot of questions ... Why? ....

    also Credit card you can not buy more than $1.000 / month.

    i like to know a cheap country where i can live and has no problem in the Money, i can send money as i like, also i can bought with no maximum using My CC.

    Because i like to develop my activity and scale it, i like to spend each month more than $20.000 in advertising like Adwords, Facebook and ...

    Also for the country you suggest what about TAX, in morocco is 0% for webmarketer.

    good luck and i wait for your answer

    I hear Phillipines and Thailand are cheap to live.

    Whatever you do, DONT come to the UK.

    What he said. I'm in UK, and spent three months in Thailand last year. As soon as I finish studying this year, I'm moving to Phuket.

    Perhaps it's easy for me to say this because I've lived here my whole life. Yes it's expensive. But unless you live in a remote country village, you can expect trouble regularly. Go to the pub and get some drunk idiot smash a bottle round your head. Get talking to a barmaid and have someone pull a knife on you. Get beaten up outside of school by three guys, for standing up to one of them. I've experienced all of that. And it gets worse. Another 15 year old was stabbed to death just down the road from here last week. There are many, many, racist, ignorant, culture-less, scummy people here.

    Don't get me wrong, I know every country has its ghetto. Every country has crime. But.. bleh, I can't wait wait to get out of here.

    Hungary. Not as beautiful as thailand, however Szeged is quite nice.
    Minimal wage is slightly below $2.
    For $300 you can get a nice 2 bedroom condo.
    Nice restaurant, decent meal with drink is 10$.
    Party? For $50 you can get drunk at a nice bar, go to a club, and take a cab home ;)
    Most hungarians earn below $1k/month, so yeah, for $1k here, you can live like a KING :)

    Another vote for Thailand. Currently living here until Sept and it's got everything you could possibly ask for.

    alot of the online poker players are looking at the same thing ....

    Most say

    Thailand / Philippines / Costa Rica / Panama / Ecuador / Bahamas

    However you need to make sure you have good internet - so investigate that first.

    Also if your going to Thailand maybe look for some other blackhatters and split a really nice place - like the PP do - rather than settle for something small.

    Can someone tell me more about Thailand please?

    How do you hide your taxes? They just don't care? You use a UK bank account and then ATM? Pay everything cash?

    What about visa? You can do the visa run every few months? Or do they eventually stop you doing that?

    I heard that foreigner can't buy property in Thailand?

    Do you have to bribe officials a lot just to live and exist there?

    What about locals hating farangs?

    Do you use any offshore or special tax arrangement e.g. Cyprus, Seychelles?

    Thanks!

    well maybe you also want to make sure u have enough savings .. those countries might seem ideal to some but think bout if you run out of money ;) no medical help then and well how can you deal with corruption without money ?? so take that into account.

    im here in the philippines now and life here is just cheap.... well you have to bear with extreme traffic and getting a good internet though...then everything else are fine...

    people are good... you can hire cheap workers, you can get cheap houses, cheap cars...
    some things are expensive though - electric and some other utilities...

    well if you like living cheap and simple life... philippines is just perfect... you can tour on weekends or as much as you want since travelling around is cheap aswell

    And Phillipines too. You can just live there on tourist visa, they don't care? You use a local bank account? do you declare anything? Corruption, bribes money needed? What's medical care like?

    Any forums recommended for more reading? Thanks
