5) Hoi An, Vietnam
When compared to Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, Hoi An is a less discovered area of Vietnam. This quiet and peaceful coastal town is attracting more attention from ex-pats looking to settle abroad. In Hoi An, you are never far from a secluded strip of white sand and tropical waters. Basic apartments can be found for $250 a month. A fully equipped, two-bedroom house runs between $400 – $500 a month. The cost of food and drink is where Hoi An really shines. You’d rarely have to spend more than $6 for a nice dinner. Breakfast and lunch are easily found for much cheaper. Beer starts at $0.50, and cocktails run around $2 – $3. BONUS: If you decide to purchase property in Hoi An, you’ll be living in the middle of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The ancient, well-preserved trading port dates back to the 15th century.
