If you have a seasonal job, own your own business, or have a job that enables you to leave for part of the year. You are a prime candidate for living in the Philippines for months on end. Spend some productive months in your home country increasing your funds to provide a comfortable living here.

The best part is that it doesn’t take much to do so as things in the Philippines are actually quite cheap when you compare them to your home country and the cost of living where you are coming from.

I can safely say it is cheaper to Live a busy, fun life here than staying home doing nothing.

There are plenty of people who work in their home country in a wide variety of professions. From landscaping to fighting forest fires who can take long periods off from work to enjoy their longer staycations here in the Philippines for the rest of the year or perhaps during the cold months back home.

They earn money for half the year then spend the rest of their time in the Philippines enjoying the perfect weather and cheap living.

1. Work at home part of the year, live in the Philippines the rest of the year

Let’s be real: most people don’t have jobs that let them say, “Adios! Be back in a few months!” Although becoming more popular nowadays this is still a very rare occurrence.

One of the most popular ways for foreigners to live the tropical island life in the Philippines is by starting a business in the Philippines that requires little to no effort after the initial setup of the business. While it’s not always easy, it can be done!

I have been living in the Philippines and running businesses for over 20 years now and it all started exactly where you are now, having a plan.

If English is not your first language there are plenty of schools offering a course in English as this is the main spoken language on the islands.
