What Members Are Saying.....


Really enjoy this site. Laid back feel with the real truth about retiring in Thailand. JC tells it like it is..... which is fantastic. Thanks JC


I've been a member for some time now and the value that this site offered for the small price is exemplary. The information offered on living in Thailand is unparalleled....detailed, up to date and accurate, it has helped me organize my plans and it cuts the learning curve on Thai living dramatically. When I first came to the site I thought the budget numbers spelled out were unrealistic. However, time has shown me they were very accurate. More life for less money!!!


Anyone considering becoming a member should read this!! I have been a member for over 2years and the information and weekly updates are truly fantastic, even if your not considering retiring to Thailand but you still have an interest in holidaying becoming a member is a must!! For the price of a few cups of coffee or a couple of drinks you can get a whole months subscription, that's not a lot!! JC is a perfectionist and the quality of his material is exceptional, very interesting , informative and very enjoyable to watch, he ALWAYS returns any queries you may have by e mail. I have followed other people on YouTube etc and whilst some are interesting they honestly are nowhere near as professional as retirecheapasia, if you really really want to see what Thailand is really like and you want to get a very honest overview do yourself a favour and join, you really won't regret it .. For the record I don't know JC personally and I am giving a very honest review here to help anyone who's thinking of visiting or retiring to Thailand ( remember you don't have to be considering retirement to Thailand to find this site helpful, it is still a wealth of information for those just interested in going for a visit) I would never have had the confidence to visit Thailand without becoming a member and I've travelled there two times in two years, the information I got through JCs site was truly invaluable , take care and God bless and enjoy the journey .

Today marks my 101st day since leaving my home in the states and I can honestly say that my only regret is that I didn’t find JC’s YouTube channel and website ten years earlier!

Thank you, JC for all the help that you, your channel and membership site have been!

The value that RCA delivers to me as a member has far exceeded the nominal membership fee for the past five years! The forum and videos gave me insight and information that allowed me to prudently make my move away from the USA and here to Thailand. Even after three years living in Bangkok, I still get great value from being and RCA member. JC does great work for his community and I am quite happy to be one small part of it!

About JC

From the time I was old enough to be on my own I have been in love with different cultures. I set out on my adventure as a teenager delivering boats to the Caribbean. I witnessed amazing and happy people that didn’t have all the luxuries that the people back home had but were very happy and generous.
