This is my very first spending plan Low cost of living in the Philippines, economical retirement in the Philippines and does not consist of scheduled expenses and although I know my every day expenses, these expenses could alter, so it will take a minimum of 6 Months prior to I really know a sustainable spending plan for the Philippines.

Hi, my name is Chris Wren, I’m wanting to see if it’s possible to remain in the Philippines on a low spending plan of 5 per Month, for the optimal legal visa stay of 3 year, prior to returning home.I’m calling my channel, a Brit in the Philippines. It will be a video log of my Filipino friends, lifestyle, trip and expenses of living in the Philippines. Kindly subscribe and follow me into the unknown and lets find this beautiful Country and it’s individuals.

  1. +A Brit In The Philippines Chris Wren $321.00? That is so cheap! You are doing great as far as budgeting your monthly expense… That is very impressive. You can't even rent a room here in the State for that amount. Sir! If may i suggest you. Try going to Bicol Region as well. I found out the Philippines came out with the new google map for the PH.

  2. I think everyone who wants to retire in the Philippines should know that is cheaper to live in the province than the City.I grow up in Manila but i prefer to live in the province where is more peaceful,good healthy food,nice beaches and the most important thing is good local people. Now! don't give me wrong! I'm not saying all of them will be good but most of them will…

  3. + A Brit In The Philippines Chris Wren I assume you retired in the Philippines sir? I'm really sorry to hear that. At the same time i am happy that you took that in, as a positive learning experience…Wish you all the luck and happiness during your stay in the Philippines. God bless you always… From the U.S.

  4. What $321 average total monthly living costs? Although this like any figure might be possible …In truth, no way should this serve as a typical example. The uploader must be either lucky in the things he's being charged for or living in a isolated cabin in the jungle/deep rural area lol. In any event my guess he's happy or forced to live withought hardly any creature comforts atall. [humble guess only]

    This is not realistic …and if relied upon will result in many newly arrived foreign travellers having a great almighty shock when they learn the reality for themselves.

    Without it sounding direspectful (no offence intended), yes I suppose a foreigner MIGHT be able to survive in the Philippines on that amount but I would imagine there to have to be an element of either going without several of the generally desired/expected/must have basics for living and/or 'leeching' off others to offset the expences MOST foreigners staying in the Philippines are all too often forced to meet (e.g. transport, medical cover, eating out, personal items, socialising, rent/hotel AND yes 'internet'!!!).

    At the end of the day, I guess if someone really wanted to ..they could live in the Philippines for nothing if they were prepared to beg, sleep wherever, steal, leeech, hustle, go without ..basically 'bum it' from day to day. 

    $321? hahaha

    Peace

  5. Thanks for 'walking the talk' Chris and attempting to live on this budget. Once and for all, people can see just how inexpensive it really is to reside, albeit simply, in the Philippines.

  6. I understand the exchange rate, but what is yours as of today? also what are your transportation costs ?

  7. Hi Chris ,it's glenda how is your life living here in the Philippines now?i hope it's getting better…take care..

  8. Its not so cheap as you say…. Hotels are very EXPANSIVE… cheap hotel w out window size 7"x6", CW to share, price 300p / nite. Hotels rooms are TINY. ok room cost you over $20./nite in small town, (n0t in Manila) UNHEALTHY Dog FOOD on street food is cheap…you will get Diarea.. ok restaurant Expensive over $10 / 1 person;

    TRANSPORTATION IS CHEAP…. (no taxi) POLUTION , NOISE AND DIRTY PLACES ALL OVER. CITY . HARD TO TRAVEL ANY PLACE YOU GO. SCAMERS, THIEFS AROUND YOU. THEY WILL STEAL FROM SECOND FLOOR TRUE WINDOWS. . GIRLS JUST LOOKING WHAT SHE CAN STEAL FROM YOU.. CHECK IT AFTER SHE GO OUT. . ONLY CITY WHERE YOU CAN BUY SOME IS MANILA….REST IS NO NO.

  9. Hi Chris,,love your videos. Particularly interested in low cost of living as i´m returning to Phills between jan and mar 2016 when i get my pension. Question is will i be able to live on 600 pounds a month including visa´s ?.I stayed in lapu lapu last year for 3 months and couldnt find an ap¨t for under 10k and i pressume i wont be living on big macs and jollybee´s ,hehe. Vies all other expat sites here and im just totally confused by the figures being thrown at me. Reekay for instance quotes a figure of $1800 ??? Another question for anyone who may know,,,,can i drive a motor cycle on a car driving licence in Phills. Thanks in advance, George

  10. I will mention that I am an expat in Mexico. You can focus on the economics when the people are friendly. But many Americans here have found that the advantageous economis does not work out in an unfriendly cultural environment. I would no longer rate economics is my number one priority. That is why I am considering the PH.

  11. yeah at least you can keep some amount every month for emergency purposes…yeah always be safe when you are out…lol where are Jack and Myra?

  12. Congrats on your video channel..! I hope to visit the PI soon..Your info is well organized, fun and informative.! Cheers.!

  13. Living in the PI depends on what kind of life you like to live. In the province it could be a little bit cheaper compared living in Manila. Am poor and the cost of living in Manila cost me around 50k to 75k which is pretty much the same anywhere in the world. 

  14. Wow $321 a month. That gives me great hope to have a retirement plan for the Phillipines. So it can be done.  How much is Internet per month in US?

  15. Well chris ,  after all that has been said i have to say "  Welcome to the philippines !  hilarious in a way but  its  a lesson learned .    the red horse in the month's budget made me laugh..  but what is it about red horse that you , jack and makoy found interesting ?   but anyways enjoy your stay here and as jack would say -Life is good!
