Japan definitely does feel like a world unto itself in many ways.

Japan:

Caucasian (Canada, US, Western EU): english teacher/student/representative/entrepreneur
Caucasian (Eastern Europe): bartender/waiter/stripper/prostitute

Black African (Nigeria, Ghana etc.): drug dealer/tout/bouncer/pimp
Black African-American: rapper/athlete/dj

Japanese are so competitive with their strong mentality it's almost impossible for a gaijin who is not an expert or genius to make good money in the day time.

I liked the people the most in Mindinao. They were the friendlist, and kindest. I recall a couple times where I had street children following me around, and other Mindinao people told them to stop bothering the foreigners.

As opposed to Manila, where is no shame whatsoever in harrassing and following around a foreigner all day long if you wanted. If anyone else saw it, they'd quickly join in, if anything.

In short...

Mindinao - most overlooked, most sincere, most honest, most kind, etc.
Visayas - the gem for traveling, the most to see. People are generally honest, kind, friendly, as well.
Luzon - foreigners are walking ATM machines.

I've only been to Mumbai. Generally, it seems that foreigners are walking ATM machines in India. But, first hand experience in Mumbai, I met a lot of great Indian people. It was only near the tourist areas of Mumbai that I felt like I was a walking dollar sign. Everywhere in Mumbai, people just treated me with respect, kindness, etc.

I heard outside of Mumbai, it's pretty much full-on ATM machine though.

Visayas and Mindanao share a common cultural bond compared to Manila////we are both provincial people

In Singapore - You will be treated with mostly respect, there is an increasing anti-foreign sentiment here but its mostly kept the the forums and aimed at the government and the PRC Chinese which I also find strange since majority of Singaporeans are Chinese.

Malaysia - As a white person they think you have money so will try to charge you extra for everything since I visit frequently its not so much of an issue now but if you have never been although you will be treated with respect you would need to be careful not to be cheated, taxis are a menace.

Thailand - They are nice and friendly overall but on a side note I have seen a few fights here and what I have noticed is that the Thai's will always help the their own regardless of the situation so usually they will just join in and the foreigner will get his ass kicked.

Philippines - Probably the most friendly place I have ever been in the world they even call you sir everywhere you go, English in the Philippines is very high standard even better than in Singapore so its easy to interact with the locals and they like to ask questions its like they are happy that you chose the Philippines to visit.
