Sometimes when you’re going around looking for the best countries to retire cheap you get a surprise. I went for a back massage today in the Philippines and was at first a little annoyed, I got a guy who was “too cool” to take his sunglasses off. He gave me a good massage though. My back was badly knotted up after sleeping a week on a bed without enough support.
When I was getting pictures of the prices for this article I noticed something. They were all blind. I now felt super stupid for thinking he was just keeping sunglasses on to look cool.
To be honest though they don’t make a point of their blindness . It’s never mentioned,and like I said before you don’t notice any qualitative difference. There are over 35 massage clinics operated by all Filipino blind. At least 5,000 Filipino blind massage therapists all around the country.
So how much did this cost?
A great price at $7 (200 php) for an hour and as you know cheap massages are definitely on my checklist for the best countries to retire cheap.
