Taipei is my top choice. The healthcare is excellent (and free) if you are a Taiwan resident.

It is very inexpensive compared to the U.S., but it's not free.

I think it's like $10 a month? Plus all the services are super cheap. I went to visit my family there, and went to a dentist for a cavity filling. It was very clean and professional, as much as any dentist I've been to in the US. The cost was $6.

At those prices it feels pretty much free. You no longer view health expenses as this weird financial burden in your life; instead, it just financially feels like buying a burrito or fixing your bike.

I agree, I stayed there recently and it was great. There was amazing, cheap food everywhere, and had really clean and extensive public transportation. It was also very safe feeling.

If you make it this way drop me a note and I'll buy you a drink. I've been here 8 years and love it.
