    5 Great Cities You Would Want to Retire to

    Last Updated On 06-07-2018

    Retirement is a golden period which signifies your freedom from your professional obligations. It’s the time to kick back and take it easy. But it is not so easy to retire anymore. With the soaring expenses and the rising cost of living, you must plan for your retirement as soon as you start your career. Only then can you create a comfortable retirement nest for yourself.

    In addition to other investments, you should also invest in a comprehensive pension plan that suits your requirements. The best pension plan will differ for everyone depending on their expectations and their financial abilities.

    A good pension plan offers:

    • Financial security through regular income
    • Cover for your spouse
    • Extended accumulated savings
    • Tax benefits
      Once that is taken care of, it is time to start planning the specifics of your retirement. The very first thing to decide is the place to retire to.

    What is an Ideal Retirement Destination?
    Everybody has their own version of an ideal retirement destination. Some people retire to their home town or villages, while there are some who do not wish to move out of big cities. Others treat retirement as a new adventure and look forward to exploring new places and cultures.

    For those who wish to retire to new places, an ideal retirement destination should:

    • Be well-connected
    • Offer all the modern conveniences
    • Have affordable real estate and low cost of living
    • Have well-equipped and reasonably priced medical facilities
    • Have a low crime rate

    According to a study by Cushman and Wakefield India, following are 5 of the best emerging cities in India which also make ideal retirement destinations.
