JC’s Road Trip – Vietnam Pt 11 – Da Nang #2
Check out our exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site - all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like-minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 In this episode we have another installment from Da Nang, Vietnam. We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand and we are really starting to appreciate Vietnam and its people. In this episode I hang with a local and try to have a conversation. I am more and more starting to feel Vietnam has a lot to offer RIPpers. In part 11 we will continue to cover what it is like to live in Vietnam and in this episode we have some info and sights and sounds again from Da Nang. We will continue to contemplate the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam as a retiree?” We will continue to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam. In case you missed it here is a little info about Da Nang Da Nang is the fifth most populated city in Vietnam and is the fifth largest city in Vietnam and one of the major port cities. With an area of 1,255.53 km² and a population of 951,700 as of 2011. Women make up 50.7% of Da Nang's population. Situated on the coast of the Eastern Sea, it is the biggest city in Central Vietnam. Da Nang is the commercial and educational center of Central Vietnam, with a well-sheltered, easily accessible port; its location on the path of National Route 1A and the North–South Railway makes it a hub for transportation. The city was previously known as Tourane (or Turon) during French colonial rule. The city's origins date back to the ancient kingdom of Champa, established in 192 AD. One of the first Europeans to visit Da Nang was Portuguese explorer António de Faria, who anchored in Đà Nẵng in 1535. Faria was one of the first Westerners to write about the area. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, French and Spanish traders and missionaries regularly made landfall at Hoi An, just south of Da Nang. During the Republic of Vietnam, the city was home to a major air base that was used by both the South Vietnamese and United States air forces in the War in Vietnam. The base was considered one of the world's busiest airports during the war reaching an average of 2,595 air traffic operations daily, more than any other airport in the world at that time. The final U.S. ground combat operations in Vietnam ceased on 13 August 1972. After the US-withdrawal from the conflict, in the final stage of the conquering of South Vietnam by North Vietnam, Da Nang fell to the communist forces March 29/30, 1975. Da Nang has a tropical monsoon climate with two seasons: a typhoon & wet season lasting from September through March and a dry season lasting from April through August. Temperatures are typically high, with an annual average of 25.9 °C (78.6 °F). Temperatures are highest between June and August (with daily highs averaging 33 to 34 °C (91 to 93 °F)), and lowest between December and February (highs averaging 24 to 25 °C (75 to 77 °F)). The annual average for humidity is 81%, with highs between October and December (reaching 84%) and lows between June and July (reaching 76–77%).

JC’s Road Trip – Vietnam Pt 9 – Nha Trang #3
Check out our exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site - all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like-minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 For my loyal viewers this video will explain a lot. I was very harsh on the Vietnamese in my previous episodes. My interactions had been quite disappointing. As you all commented I said to hang in there. Well now you will start to see why I said that. The events in this video were a major turning point in my considering Vietnam and a RIPper (Retiree In Paradise) destination. It might be a bit slower than some of my videos and less informative but none the less this was a major change for me. Watch and you will see why! In this episode we have another installment from Vietnam. We are having a great time in a different SE Asian country than Thailand and are really starting to appreciate what Vietnam has to offer RIPpers. In part 9 we will continue to cover what it is like to live in Vietnam and in this episode we have more info and sights and sounds from Nha Trang. We will continue to try to answer the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam?” We will continue to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam. Here again is a little info about Nha Trang in case you missed it. Nha Trang is a coastal city and capital of Khánh Hòa Province, on the South Central Coast of Vietnam. The city has about 392,000 inhabitants, a number that is projected to increase to 560,000 by 2015 and 630,000 inhabitants by 2025. An area of 12.87 square kilometers (4.97 sq mi) of the western communes of Diên An and Diên Toàn is planned to be merged into Nha Trang which will make its new area 265.47 square kilometers (102.50 sq mi) based on the approval of the Prime Minister of Vietnam in September 2012. Nha Trang is well known for its beaches and scuba diving and has developed into a popular destination for international tourists, attracting large numbers of backpackers, as well as more affluent travelers on the south-east Asia circuit; it is already very popular with Vietnamese tourists, with Nha Trang Bay widely considered as among the world's most beautiful bays. Nha Trang Bay, which was chosen by Travel + Leisure in two succeeding years as one of 29 most beautiful bays in the world, is surrounded on all three sides by mountains and a large island and four smaller ones on the fourth side (in the ocean directly in front of the city's main area), blocking major storms from potentially damaging the city. Nha Trang has a tropical savanna climate with a lengthy dry season from January to August and a shorter wet season from September to December, when 1,029 millimeters (41 in) of the city's total annual rainfall of 1,361 millimeters (54 in) is received from the north-east monsoon. During the wet season extremely heavy rainfall from typhoons is not uncommon, though the city is shielded from the worst winds.

JC’s Road Trip – Vietnam Pt 3 – HCMC Saigon
Exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site - all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like-minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 Well for all the fans sick of seeing Thailand, here you go! We are in a different SE Asian country this time, Vietnam. In part 3 we will continue to cover what it costs and what is it like to live in Vietnam? We will try to answer the question can a category 1 RIPper (Retiree In Paradise) live well in Vietnam? Well I am off finding out. We will see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country. This video is a little intro and some comments. In this video we are still in Saigon. Or should I say HCMC. Which name should you use? Well not sure really. Here are some considerations for using Saigon: • The airport code for Ho Chi Minh City is still SGN. • Saigon is still used as a label for District 1, the center of Ho Chi Minh City. • New hotel developments often opt for ‘Saigon’ in their name rather than ‘Ho Chi Minh City.’ • Some bus stations still label signs and tickets with ‘Saigon.’ • The river flowing through the city is still named the Saigon River. • Vietnamese people living overseas who fled at the end of the war usually say Saigon for political reasons. And some considerations for Ho Chi Minh City: • In Hanoi and the north, you’ll more often hear ‘Ho Chi Minh City.’ • All government publications and productions use ‘Ho Chi Minh City.’ • All official documents and writings use ‘Ho Chi Minh City.’ • Places in the province surrounding Saigon, far from District 1, are often referred to as being in Ho Chi Minh City rather than in Saigon. For those not up to speed on Vietnam and it’s history here is a little background info. Its real name is the Socialist Republic of Vietnam and their motto is, "Independence – Freedom – Happiness". Vietnam is a socialist one party state with a population of about 92 million people. Vietnam is bordered by China to the north, Laos to the northwest and Cambodia to the southwest. Vietnam was part of Imperial China for over a millennium and the Indochina Peninsula was colonized by the French in the mid-19th century. Vietnam had Japanese occupation in the 1940s, the Vietnamese fought French rule in the First Indochina War, eventually expelling the French in 1954. Thereafter, Vietnam was divided politically into two rival states, North and South Vietnam. Conflict between the two sides intensified, with heavy intervention from the United States, in what is known as the Vietnam War. The war ended with a North Vietnamese victory in 1975. Vietnam was then unified under a communist government but remained impoverished and politically isolated. In 1986, the government initiated a series of economic and political reforms which began Vietnam's path towards integration into the world economy and as a result free enterprise is in full effect!

How To Find Your Home In Thailand
Exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site - all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 If you have watched any of my videos previously you probably already know that it is cheap to live in Thailand. And many people have come behind me to do a similar type video that I have been doing. So I also feel that I have an obligation to give you information that might help your journey continue on a little bit smoother. I do that by offering information I think would be helpful to smooth out the learning curve and also to help answer questions that I get asked very frequently. I personally feel there are four steps in moving or relocating to a new country and making it your new home. The four steps needed to determine if or when you can make the move to a new retirement destination are deciding, planning, preparing and then settling in. Some of the action items you will need to do are covered in detail in my member site and some of the action items also overlap into different categories. So with that in mind I am offering you this video that will explain the process of finding your new retirement home in Thailand.

What JC Doesn’t Like About Thailand
Exclusive RetireCheap.Asia membership site - all the REAL life details you need to live in Thailand plus connect with other like minded people at: http://goo.gl/M0nMT5 If you have watched any of my videos previously you probably know that I am always talking about what I love about Thailand and the reasons I stay here. But I get asked a lot whether or not there are things about the country that I do not like. And of course just like any other place in the world there is good and bad. The key to living someplace and being content as a RIPper is to find a place that you fit in well into the society and you share common beliefs and values. For me Thailand seems to be that place. But who knows, in the future I could end up somewhere else. I always keep in mind that life is a journey not a destination. So getting back to the question, are there things I don't like about Thailand, the answer is yes. So in this video I will talk about a few of the things that get under my skin and I wish would change. But just as I wish things to change other people probably appreciate some of these things. So are these things good or bad? The truth is they are neither. Good and bad are only subjective feelings based on wanting things to be either the same as they are or different. So because I understand that I sort of let these things slide off my back like water on a duck. And I also know that because the world and people in it are constantly changing, these things to will change over time. So here we go. Here are some things that I don't like about Thailand. Check them out. Please become a friend or subscribe to this channel and you if can, link back to my website, I’d appreciate it.
