@NomadicYou Will it be the beaches of Bali and Antalya, or cultural Chiang Mai and Bangalore that top your best rental destinations?
It is interesting to see how Johannesburg and Cape Town are relatively cheap to buy property in, but not that cheap to rent. The Antalya beaches seem appealing at around $225 for a furnished studio apartment per month. And since this is an average, it is possible to find rental apartments even cheaper than that!
