Some country pairs was talked about already in a very specific, informative, good way such as Thailand vs. Vietnam, Taiwan vs. Japan, China vs. Taiwan, and Thailand vs. Cambodia/Laos.

These are some possible country pairs that can be focused on next for this topic: India vs. Thailand, Malaysia vs. Vietnam, and South Korea vs. China.

I easily prefer Thailand, but Cambodia and Laos are also nice for visiting.

Wow, I actually forget that Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam had historical French influence and connections, but in recent times that influence is minimal.

Some people don’t realize France probably has almost as much Asian immigration/connections as UK/England. They seem to be some of the most Asian friendly countries in Europe.

Most of the time, I don’t use the “West” term and Asia in reality never needed influence from Europe to become wealthier, more modern, progressive, etc. Most areas of Asia can easily achieve that without help from Europe, or North America.
Yes France has actually more Asians than the UK believe it or not.

Well actually the West did help Siam and Japan develop themselves into modern nations - the British actually helped Siam quite a bit in the early 20th century. Some European technology was necessary for them to fully modernise.
