    11 year internet marketer here, Finally looking to leave the USA, and maybe try my hand at another country to live. I think working on the internet is the best because you can still earn US wages, but live in a different country... So I am looking to here people's experiences, where you actually have lived or currently live, that is a good place where its: cheap, beautiful, GOOD internet, and no problems living there (Visa or whatever) or using my bank/money.

    I heard things like Thailand and Philippines but unsure the situations with long term visas or how easy to get my money.

    For an American expat, I would take my pick of the following countries.

    Peru
    Thailand
    South Korea
    Romania
    Chile
    Germany
    Iceland

    Why?

    Something a lot of expats don't think about is health care standards. We automatically assume all other countries have at least half decent healthcare. Not true.

    These countries have some of the better health care systems outside of the US.

    Germany and South Korea might be as expensive as the US in some places, but not all.

    Well, why not my country China?

    Come on, you can live a pretty cool life with your money, kind people, safety environment, but some places are not clean, but still, much better than India, you can easily get your money too.

    Oh, btw, you can get a nice girl marry to you if you are happen to love Chinese girl.

    I lived in the Philippines and don't recommend it. Inconsistent, slow, expensive internet. You wouldn't want to live in or around Manila (too much traffic). High crime, poor health care, the list could go on. The provinces / islands are beautiful but internet there is patchy as well. Banks are a joke. I had to explain to a couple what paypal is and then there's "maintaining balance"...too many stories.

    Oh, I forgot there's an election next year and the police at the airport are currently scamming passengers by putting bullets in their luggage. Then asking for money once the metal detector goes off..

    I'd recommend Taiwan, but you'd need to pick up a 14-hour a week ESL gig to get a resident visa with (almost free) healthcare. If not, I think you'd have to leave every 180 days.

    Safe, low crime rate and the internet is cheap and fast.

    I dream of making my escape from New York. Some of you guys would drop dead if you heard what the cost of rent/living is here...
