So you’re a guy and you’re thinking about moving to another country—a better country, or at least less bad. What are the best countries in the world to move to if you’re a dude?
Today, I’m going to give you the top five countries for men to move to based on my years of experience researching countries. This is based on factors like economics, income, tax laws, women and dating. All those categories come into play. These are countries that have good economies, aren’t collapsing, it’s easy to start a business and make money, and they’re more or less tax-favorable.
I’ve always said: if you live in the Western world—meaning the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, or New Zealand—you pay the highest taxes in the world. There’s no reason to work that hard to wind up with so little net income after taxes.
We’ll also look at countries that aren’t super expensive; some here are more so than others. And as always, climate is another thing we’ll take into account.
So what are the best countries to move to for men?
5. The Philippines
One of the things I’ve said for years is that if you’re a guy who can’t get laid—maybe you’re a beta or an old man, whatever the reason—go to the Philippines. Go there for a week. You will get laid like a rock star. Philippine women are the horniest and most sex-positive women in the entire world. I mean that literally. Of all the women in the world, they are the ones who are most likely to have sex with you. They love men, and they certainly love Western men. You don’t need to be white—you can be Black, Hispanic, anything.
Also, the Philippines is one of the cheapest places in the world to live. You can build your own house on beachfront property for $10,000 or less. It’s insanely cheap.
Also, it’s part of southeast Asia, and as I’ve talked about in my blogs and books, southeast Asia is the only region of the world that, over the next 25 years, will grow economically. There are a lot of economic reasons to move there.
Now, if economics is your primary (or only) reason to move, there are better places you can move to in southeast Asia. But if your reasons combine economics, good weather, women, cost of living, etc., the Philippines is an awesome choice.
Panama is amazing. It’s like a Singapore or Hong Kong right in the middle of the Americas. Panama City is one of the best cities in the Western hemisphere; most Westerners are shocked the first time they visit Panama because it looks like a modern Asian city.
Panamanians are very American-friendly, and they use American dollars there, so you don’t have to worry about currency exchanges there. It’s easier to get residency there than in many countries today. And the women are really attractive—Panama borders Colombia, which has the most beautiful women in the world, and lots of Colombian women hang out in Panama City.
It’s a great place to do business, and the tax structures are favorable there too. Its location is great, and it’s easy to travel if you’re going to North or South America because you’re right there in Central America. The Panama Canal provides a lot of economic stability—the place is just a total win. I highly recommend it for men looking to move out of the Western world.
3. United Arab Emirates
This is where I live. The UAE has zero taxes—not low taxes, zero taxes. There is no income, corporate, or payroll taxes here, and there are no property taxes here unless you own commercial real estate. There are also no capital gains taxes. There’s a four percent sales tax when you buy stuff; other than that, there are no taxes imposed in the UAE.
This is a really good location for travel because you’re right in the middle of the world. You can hit Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia—you’re within eight hours of just about anywhere in the world outside of the Americas.
The weather is really nice. Outside of June-July-August, when it’s really hot, the weather is terrific. But you can travel during those months.
The women here are hot. All the hot women from Russia, eastern and western Europe, Brazil, all over the world—they come here to Dubai. This is a great place for this.
Now, the UAE is not as cheap as many of you would like. It is a little more expensive to live here. Certainly, if the cost of living is one of your primary factors, you probably wouldn’t move to the UAE. But even at that, there are lots of things here that are much cheaper than in the U.S. It really just depends on your lifestyle.
I highly recommend Dubai/UAE, especially if you don’t have a super-low income. I’ve lived here for a while and I love it.
In terms of all the things we’ve talked about—good weather, attractive women, great beaches, tax structures—Thailand has all those things.
Now, the cost of living in Bangkok has gone up a little; it’s not as inexpensive as it used to be. But if you live outside of Bangkok, which I would recommend, you can benefit from friendly people, a super cheap lifestyle, good tax structures, and it’s in southeast Asia, so it’s in a growth area of the world. Thailand probably won’t grow quite as fast as other countries in that part of the world, but it will still do very well economically.
Now, if it’s that great, why didn’t I move there? It’s a little humid in Thailand, and I’m not really big on that. Also, I was excited about living in a really high-tech city like Dubai; that’s more my style. But if you guys don’t give a shit about that, Thailand is awesome. I’ve never really talked to anyone who moved there and didn’t like it.
Colombia has the most beautiful women in the world. The cost of living is ridiculously low. The weather is fantastic. The location is decent. The tax laws are not the best on this list, but they are certainly much lower than the Western world, and there are ways to mitigate their impact based on how long you’re there and your business structures.
It’s also relatively easy to get residency there compared to other countries. Colombia is one of my primary flags. If you put a gun to my head and forced me to name the absolute best country in the world for men to move to based on all factors combined, it would be Colombia.
Also, Colombia is growing faster, economically, than most countries in Asia. It’s one of the fastest-growing countries in the world that way, and it will be for the next 25 years or so.
Sure, there are problems there. They didn’t handle COVID-19 very well, but frankly, most countries didn’t handle that well either. As I’ve talked about, they’re working on their problems, unlike places like Brazil, which has all the same problems but isn’t working to fix anything. Colombia is working hard to become a better country, and the numbers reflect that.
