What do lifestyle migrants do?

37 per cent of respondents to our survey about lifestyle migration in Malaysia and Thailand are retired, and 68 per cent of those are under 65 years of age.

A further 20 per cent are either self-employed or working occasionally.  30 per cent are in paid employment, and 7 per cent are looking after the family or home.

Lifestyle migrants are not generally living in big families. 24 per cent of our respondents live alone and 40 per cent live with just one other person. But 71 per cent are either married or living with a partner. So, are a lot of married couples living apart?

Work life balance is quite or very important to 71 per cent of them; but it’s not necessarily a slow pace of life you seek. More than half didn’t think a slow pace of life mattered much.
