Make sitting on a deserted beach listening to the roar of the rolling waves, feeling the ocean breeze in your face, and enjoying the warmth of the sun on your skin as you sip on your favourite cocktail a part of your retirement plan. Here are some of Asia's best islands to retire on, according to International Living.
1. Penang, Malaysia
Coming out on top is our one and only Pearl of the Orient. According to International Living, Penang has been a firm favourite among savvy expats for decades–and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out why. Fondly regarded as the food capital of Malaysia, the island is home to heritage buildings, interactive street murals, cafes and bars, and sandy beaches, perfect for those with plenty of time to spare and prefer to have a variety of things to do minus the hustle and bustle.
