What is retirement really like in Thailand?

I’m often asked what it is like to retire early in Thailand. These days, I have to think about it because daily life now seems to be routine and simple and it is not easy to recall what daily life was like over 4 years ago. The lack of stress is the only thing that really comes to mind and the simplicity of life where all the essentials are inexpensive and readily available.
Today Chanya found another quaint hole in the wall cafe to have lunch. It had a space theme and was quite cute. These sort of places are unique to Thailand as I’m sure they aren’t achievable in western culture when you add in all the red tape and overheads of running a business. Thailand is always showing me I made the right choice for my retirement.
