LatAm vs. Southeast Asia
Where is best for ye' red-blooded male knee-deep in that Wi-Fi money lifestyle?
Post written by: @Latam Papi
Southeast Asia and Latin America—two regions on the radar of just about every red-blooded male knee deep in that Wi-Fi money lifestyle.
But don’t get it twisted:
Moving abroad is not just about saving a few bucks or cutting out bullsh*t expenses like car insurance.
Men move to places like Thailand or Argentina to meet other like-minded bros and take their businesses to the next level, all while pursuing unforgettable adventures and meeting feminine women.
SEA and LatAm both happen to be wet dreams for any male who makes money online with a total testosterone of 500+
But something’s been going down in Southeast Asia, and I don’t like it one bit.
Take the example of my Irish buddy, who had it absolutely made in Singapore.
Dude would waltz into any club at any given hour, and be given a prime table with seven Chinese instagram models. Once seated, he’d fist bump David Beckham (or whoever the hell was next to him) and then get handies from each of his seven female acquaintances. This was before Singapore’s draconian lockdown.
As of 2020, the city-state became a ghost town and stayed that way for two years. Even when restrictions “eased” earlier this year, bars could not even play music and had to close at 10:30pm.
Best of all, you couldn’t ever assemble in a group of three, or else be charged with partaking in an “illegal gathering.” For some reason, only the foreigners ever got charged (and deported) for illegal gatherings.
Sadly, my buddy is not alone. There are thousands of well-to-do expat bros who have found themselves locked in for yet another year of Asian-style authoritarianism. And it’s not the kind that comes with a happy ending.
Except I only smoked the good sh*t.
Don’t get me wrong: Southeast Asia is still up there with LatAm. But the tides have turned in a big way.
I’ve spent significant time in both regions over this past decade, and will break down how the two are similar, how they’re different, and which LatAm cities you should consider if you’re looking to settle in the land of bunda.
