Upgrade To A Country Club Retirement In Cambodia…
Even on Your Age Pension
Dear International Living Australia Reader,
It sure is the good life…
Sipping Champagne as the sun sets fiery crimson over the Mekong River…
Dining on the terrace of a beautifully renovated French villa, savouring foie gras and handcut wagyu beef prepared by a celebrated French chef…
Lazing by the pool for a few hours, then treating yourself with a professional Khmer massage at the spa…
Luxuries like these—and more—are so affordable in Cambodia, you can enjoy them regularly and for a fraction of the cost in Australia. In fact, for $2,148 a month, a couple can spoil themselves with a “French champagne and country club” retirement loaded with luxuries.
For instance, if you like to play golf, in Phnom Penh alone, you can choose from six international-standard courses—the latest is a 36-hole course designed by Sir Nick Faldo. From just $62 for 18 holes—including the caddie—it's no wonder Cambodia is Southeast Asia's newest golfing mecca.
And if you love clothes, imagine having your own tailor whip up a couture outfit—including shoes—for K-Mart prices. Leather shoes $25, a pair of trousers for less than $20, a fully lined dress for around the same.
You could dine out regularly at four- and five-star restaurants without counting pennies. For just $25 for two—including excellent wine—you can enjoy an authentic Italian meal at a high-end restaurant. Or for $6.50 a head, feast at a traditional Cambodian barbecue restaurant.
This is just the start of what retiring in Cambodia offers.
The World's Best Destination To Boost Your Retirement Lifestyle
This former French Indochina nation is an up-and-coming sweet spot, destined to become one of the world's best destinations for a VIP lifestyle.
We've reached out to our network of Australians on the ground who've got the good life in Cambodia figured out…and compiled their insider intelligence. And we're rolling out the red carpet for you to take the next step.
Once a hangout for backpackers, Cambodia is changing fast. Yet costs remain astoundingly low. For example, just $2 or $3 will take you across Phnom Penh—not in an ordinary taxi, but in a leather-seated Lexus.
In the very best district of Phnom Penh, an upmarket urban lifestyle is yours with just $365 a month rent for a spacious and modern one-bedroom apartment. You'll pay seven times that to rent something similar in either Sydney or Melbourne.
A lower cost of living is just one of many reasons to retire in style in Cambodia. You'll also find plenty to keep you interested…
- In the Parisian-inspired capital of Phnom Penh, with its exotic blend of modern skyscrapers, ancient pagodas and palaces and glorious colonial buildings, you'll find Western-style shopping centres, bustling local markets and some of the most affordable international fine dining in Southeast Asia.
- On the “Lost Riviera” coast—where French colonists once arrived for glitzy weekends in vintage convertibles—a new era of grandeur attracts expats and travellers. You'll find dishevelled French villas renovated as cosy guesthouses and trendy restaurants. Stroll Kampot's riverside promenade at sunset and enjoy happy hour cocktails as the fishing fleet return home with their catch. Or feast on fresh crab in nearby Kep at a table perched over the sea.
- If you love history and art, there's the vast Angkor Wat temple complex with its mysterious, vine-clad ruins deep in the jungle. Nearby Siem Reap is a colourful, arty town bursting with artisan galleries and an astounding variety of restaurants and cafes.
- There's a vibrant art scene, too, in the ancient city of Battambang. Murals bring faded colonial shophouses to life and the latest art gallery openings reel you in from the wide, sun-washed streets.
- And if you just want to get away from it all, pack a picnic and catch a boat to one of the many islands off the coast. You'll likely have the undeveloped white-sand beach to yourself. Snorkel among tropical fish in the warm, turquoise waters…or grab a hammock and relax with an icy cold beer.
That's the thing about Cambodia—it's easy to have fun when your daily necessities are so affordable.
When everyday living tasks like house cleaning, washing and ironing are taken care of inexpensively and cheerfully by your own private housekeeper, Cambodia becomes even more attractive as an ideal retirement destination.
When Australian Paul H. discovered Cambodia two years ago, the incredibly low costs stunned him. So he swapped a penny-pinching retirement in Australia for a lifestyle of financial freedom in Phnom Penh. He pays just $475 a month for rent—including utilities and Pay TV. He's ditched the car and travels by luxury SUV at the click of a button on his phone. And he regularly spends a full day at the Phnom Penh Sports Club, where for $14 all up gives him access to two pools, the gym, sauna, Jacuzzi—and a traditional Khmer massage.
“Living in Cambodia has been a game changer for me”, Paul says. “I get to enjoy all of life's luxuries without having to count my pennies or watch what I spend anymore. My life here isn't good—it's flipping great!”
And the icing on the cake?
The Cambodian people.
Without exception, every expat we've spoken to in Cambodia has only good things to say about the people. Warm and welcoming…with a ready smile that genuinely says “we're glad you're here”. (Many of them speak English, too.)
“Living in Cambodia Means I Never Have to Worry About What Things Cost”
Paul H.'s retirement in Australia looked far from luxurious. Despite having run a reasonably successful business and owning his home, Paul was only just getting by.
A holiday in Cambodia changed everything. Paul says, “The switch flicked inside my head and I realised if I rented my house in Australia, it would cover all the costs of having a much higher standard of living over here”.
When 68-year-old Paul moved to Phnom Penh, his retirement became what he always dreamed it would be—a comfortable life of luxury and financial freedom.
“Living in Cambodia means I never have to worry about what things cost as it's all so affordable. You name it and I guarantee you can get it here for a fraction of the price you'd pay in Australia.
“Can you imagine renting a nice apartment in the middle of Sydney for $500 a month? It'd never happen, but in Phnom Penh the rent for my Western-style apartment is $365 a month. Add on utilities like air conditioning and Pay TV and I still only pay around $475 a month, all up.
Paul isn't the only Australian who's cottoned on to the low cost of the good life in Cambodia.
Take pensioner Bob C. “The money from my pension would barely cover basic expenses back home…but in Phnom Penh I get to live life with a bit of luxury instead.” Bob's inner city two-bedroom apartment is in one of the best Phnom Penh neighbourhoods and costs just $428 a month to rent. In his home town of Perth, Bob reckons “the cost would be 10 times higher!”
Few age pensioners in Australia find room in their budget for travel. But Bob has enough money left over each month to fund regular international travel—just last year he travelled to Bali, Kuala Lumpur, Phuket, Hong Kong and Ho Chi Minh City.
Paul and Bob are just some of the many Aussies enjoying a lifestyle that's out of reach for most retirees in Australia.
Why Downsize in Australia, When You Could Trade Up in Cambodia?
You hear a lot about downsizing in the media…
…Move to a smaller home, scale back your non-essential spending.
It's one way to stretch your retirement funds. But not the only way…
And that's why I'm writing to you today.
My name is Jackie Flynn. I'm the Publisher of International Living Australia.
And today, I'd like to introduce you to an “outside the box” retirement solution…
…and show you how you could trade up your lifestyle in Cambodia, instead of downsizing in Australia.
In today's Cambodia you'll be amazed how far your dollars can stretch. With the cost of everything so much lower than in Australia, a couple can live very well indeed for $2,148 a month—tops. And it's not uncommon for single retirees to live comfortably on a budget of $1,500. Away from the capital of Phnom Penh, in towns like Battambang and Kampot, you'll spend even less.
Considering the full Australian age pension (without the supplements) for a single is around $1,790 a month and for a couple $2,698 a month, there's substantial change left over to spend on even more luxuries, like travel.
Or maybe you'll put money away for a rainy day—imagine doing that on the age pension in Australia…
A Place to Call Home—For as Little as $348 Rent Per Month
Although you can buy property in Cambodia, we highly recommend renting first so you can get a feel for living there. Most expats prefer to rent, anyway—even if they stay long-term. It's quick, easy and flexible.
And you'll have no trouble finding an affordable and comfortable place to call home in Cambodia. In fact, you'll be spoiled for choice.
From traditional Khmer-style houses, to French colonial townhouses and modern serviced apartments, there's something to suit all tastes and budgets. Take your pick from these recent listings…
- In the popular Tonle Bassac neighbourhood of Phnom Penh, conveniently close to the ultra-modern Aeon Shopping Mall, is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment. It comes fully furnished and has parking for a motorcycle. Rent: $450 per month.
- Need more space? A three-bedroom, three-bathroom townhouse is located in the Russian Market area of Phnom Penh. The two-storey townhouse comes fully furnished and offers a spacious 240 square metres of living space, plus parking for a motorcycle. Rent: $750 per month.
- In the laidback riverside town of Kampot, there's a one-bedroom, one-bathroom bungalow right by the river and only five kilometres outside the town centre. It comes with a lovely outside terrace with excellent views of the river at sunset. Rent: $348 per month.
- In Siem Reap—gateway to the ancient Angkor Wat Temple Complex—there is a two-storey, three-bedroom traditional Khmer house available. This home comes fully furnished and has a large, leafy garden with plenty of parking. Rent: $695 per month.
- If you love the arts, try the colonial town of Battambang. There are more artists per capita here than anywhere else in Cambodia. It's a chilled-out kind of place and most expats choose to walk or bicycle everywhere. Here you can rent a lovely two-bedroom, three-bathroom villa, fully furnished, with its own terrace and garden. Rent: $417 per month.
Prefer to own? Foreigners can buy property in Cambodia (although most don't bother because rents are so cheap). Here are a couple of recent listings:
- In the popular satellite area of Phnom Penh South, within a newly built compound with a reputation for good security, there is a two-storey house for sale. It has two bedrooms, three bathrooms and a terrace with space to park one car. Price: $111,202.
- In Kampot a traditional Khmer-style timber house is currently for sale. The property is spacious, with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, parking space for a car, motorbike and bicycle and a pretty garden with stunning views of the nearby mountain range. Price: Just $83,398.
If you're thinking these prices seem ridiculous in light of current prices in Australia, both for rentals and to buy, they are. With prices this affordable, you could choose to keep your existing Australian home (as Paul H. has), rent it out and use that income to fund your amazing new Cambodian retirement lifestyle.
Live the Good Life—Every Day—Even on a Modest Budget
Matthew Stokes is retired on a modest monthly income which, he says, “wouldn't buy me bread and water to last the month in Australia. But here in Cambodia I can live very nicely indeed. Good grub, great beer and a nice place to call home. It's not a struggle for me now but it was before I came here…it wasn't pretty at all.
“This change in my financial situation has brought a real sense of fun back into my life…there's no more worrying about money all the time. When you start getting old you get anxious about ending up in the poor house but moving to Cambodia means that's not going to happen.”
A modest budget stretches a long way in Cambodia. For example…
- Forget soaring power bills—in Cambodia, just $130 a month covers all your utilities—electricity, water, internet and mobile phone, even Pay TV.
- Dining out is an everyday activity, rather than a luxury, for many expats. No wonder, when you can eat well from as little as $1.50 for a hearty breakfast, $3 for a tasty local dish of meat, vegies and rice and between $5 and $10 for authentic Italian pizza or a juicy Australian steak.
- Low import taxes on alcohol means you can buy genuine French bubbly from $25 a bottle, $10 for a decent bottle of Australian wine and as little as 65 cents gets you an icy cold beer.
- Get across town by tuk-tuk or motorbike taxi for around $1.30. Spend a little more—$2 to $3—and you'll ride in a luxury SUV or Lexus.
- Feel a million dollars in a tailor-made wardrobe—custom made in quality European fabrics or Cambodian silks. A shirt for $10 to $15, a pair of trousers for $20, a dress for $28, designer-copy leather shoes for around $28 and a leather bag to finish off your outfit for $10.
- Pay 70% less for dental work than you would in Australia--$27.50 for a clean and polish and just $275 for root canal surgery.
- For a full day at the Phnom Penh Sports Club, including access to the pool, gym, sauna and Jacuzzi (with a traditional Khmer massage thrown in) you'll spend around $14.
- Pamper yourself with a manicure for $7.60 and a 90-minute massage for $10.
- Recline comfortably to watch the latest Hollywood blockbuster in a 4DX cinema from $5.50 a ticket.
To give you a better idea of how well you can live in Cambodia on a modest budget, here's a sample of monthly expenses for a couple living in one of the best neighbourhoods in Phnom Penh:
|Rent (for a furnished two-bedroom apartment):||$525|
|Mobile phone and internet (shared 4G voice and data plan):||$11.25|
|Pay TV (standard package):||$6.50|
|Electricity with regular air-con:||$105|
|Groceries, wine and beer (including imported and local luxury items):||$275|
|Entertainment (including eating out):||$250|
|Transportation (tuks tuks or taxis):||$48|
|House cleaner (four hours a week):||$40|
|Clothes professionally washed and ironed:||$25|
|Monthly gym membership for two people:||$82|
|Golf for two people (18 holes twice a month at the Cambodia Golf and Country Club):||$144|
|High-end dining once a month (free-flow Champagne Brunch at Raffles Le Royale Hotel):||$230|
|Twice-monthly spa treatments (manicure, pedicure and massage):||$82|
A similar lifestyle in Australia would easily cost six times this.
Now, if golf isn't your thing…or if you don't fancy gym workouts, you'll likely spend less than this. On the other hand, you might add in more five-star meals out…more Champagne…or more travel.
And whilst healthcare in Cambodia is excellent—and inexpensive—many expats take out health insurance to cover emergencies. Everyday medical costs are low—for example, prescription medications cost about 10% of the cost in Australia. For a consultation with a specialist, you'll pay around $65 (compare this to Australia where you'd pay at least $200).
Imagine living every day without worrying about what things cost…
“Everything and I mean everything, is so affordable. I didn't know what luxury was before coming here. Now my refrigerator is full of organic fruit, French wine and cheese, Australian lamb, Belgian chocolates…and you know what? I can buy whatever I want and still spend under $75 a week.”—Ryan Preston in Phnom Penh
The value for money is incredible. But it's not the only reason Australian retirees are drawn to Cambodia…and don't want to ever leave.
“What I Love Most About Cambodia is Something Money Simply Can't Buy”
When our International Living Cambodia Correspondent, Steven King, made his home in Cambodia 13 years ago, he felt totally at home within a few short months. Of course, it helped that he slashed his previous living costs by 75%…
But, he says, “What I love most about Cambodia is something money simply can't buy… Cambodia's real appeal lies in the place and the people”.
Cambodian people are—quite simply—delightful.
Whereas some cultures begrudgingly accept outsiders, Cambodians view both tourists and expats as cause for celebration. Despite what they've gone through in recent history—or perhaps because of it—they're fiercely proud of their country. And they welcome foreigners with genuine enthusiasm.
Everywhere you go, you'll be greeted by locals of all ages with big, beautiful Khmer smiles, followed by “Hello” and “How are you?”. They see newcomers as potential friends and embrace the opportunity to practise their English.
Bob Coleman says “I've never felt so welcome in a foreign country”. He talks about how friendly the Cambodians are…and how readily they welcome you, “You can't walk down the street without somebody saying hello or giving you a big smile”.
“It's the Cambodian People Who Make the Place Shine”
Australian Matthew Stokes loves the sense of fun Cambodians have. “They are lovely…they're always smiling and joking around. Everybody's welcome and nobody is excluded from joining in the fun.
“They are as curious about foreigners as we are about them. I don't have a bad word to say about any of the folks I've met. They've treated me with kindnesses that you wouldn't believe. As great as the visa benefits, living costs and top-notch dentists are, it's the Cambodian people who make the place shine.”
Old-Fashioned Respect for Seniors
Whilst genuine respect for older people is largely gone from Western society, in Cambodia it's embedded into the culture. Pat Music, a 68-year-old Australian in Battambang, explains, “Everyone calls me grandma or grandmother, even the monks. I feel very spoiled and pampered. They treat me like gold.
“It's a hidden gem that most people coming to Cambodia never see. They're missing out.”
You'll Never Run Out of Things to Do…
With everything so affordable in Cambodia, there's no limit to the things you can do and see.
- Explore Cambodia's towns and cities. From the leafy, Parisian-style boulevards of Phnom Penh…to the ancient wonders of Angkor Wat…the faded colonial elegance of Kampot and Battambang…and the sleepy coastal town of Kep with its fabulous fresh crab market.
- Immerse yourself in art and history. Most people associate Cambodia with the vast Angkor Wat Temple Complex. What's not so well known, however, is the cutting-edge art scene in colonial Battambang. Siem Reap, too, is an arty town at the centre of Cambodia's artisan craft renaissance.
- Use your Cambodian home as a base to explore the region. With Cambodia's new Retirement Visa, it's easy to stay long-term in the country…and come and go as you please. International airports in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville give you easy access to Thailand, Vietnam, China, Malaysia, Laos, Singapore and more.
- Set up your dream business—it's easy to do in Cambodia. With no red tape or bureaucracy the only limit on your business…is your imagination. Teach English…open a bar…operate a B&B…run travel tours. It's a place where anything is possible.

You won't find this kind of information anywhere else…at any price.
We spent many months—and thousands of dollars—putting it together. It would be easy to justify a price tag of $300 or $400—and, frankly, it would be worth every cent.
If you had to put all this information together yourself…you'd spend every bit of that and more, in dollars and in time.
But we're not asking for that.
You see, at International Living, it's our mission to bring the best opportunities around the world to our readers. Opportunities to save money, make money and live the life of their dreams.

It would cost you at least $600 for a return flight from Australia to Cambodia if you were to gather all this intelligence yourself. On top of that, you'd have the cost of accommodation, transport, meals and visas.
