    If you didn’t need a close city I would have suggested Gran Canaria.

    HK is funny when it gets to late October. The layers go on for the locals. For me it will just be another layer over the next few days. Hopefully Philippines for CNY but no doubt the seasonal one or two cold snaps will bite me when I get back. I cannot do HK sub 10 degrees. I have no problem with the UK cold (admittedly North Essex so hardly Yorkshire Dales etc).

    I only know some places in Europe, therefore I would go for Lisbon or Barcelona, maybe Valencia. Nice places.

    What do you think; where would be a great place like mentioned above?
    Cape Town? Quite a few Germans there, at least during NH winter. Safety is a problem though.

    Got my eye on Cuenca, Ecuador, high in the low 20's, all year long. Low in the teens, at night (I like it to cool off). So, N. America spring, all year long. Easy to get retirement visa if can prove income of something around 1000 USD/month (I think it's a bit less, but let's say 1000, most expats can easily show this number). There are also beach cities in Ecuador with temperate climates, if you need a beach (give me mountains over beach, any day).

    It does, between Feb and April, go to Phuket/Koh Samui/Krabi/Hua Hin/Bang kok/Pattaya during those months, enjoy beach life and come back to mountains in April, best of both worlds, lot of characters in each city/place and not to mention legendary food scene..

    Yes, Gran Canaria is also a good alternative, most of the year good weather, and not so humid like here.
    And flights are cheap to Europe..

    Chaing Mai - I´ve heard from a lot of retired Swiss people there

    California has perfect weather. You could surf and snowboard in the same day.
    South Africa (which is the cradle of man kind) also has perfect weather in most of the country. Some areas up north can get too hot in the summer. Too bad crime is a big problem there.
