HK is just like NYC, London, Paris, Tokyo, Seoul, Beijing, Buenos Aires...etc. You will always find the most attractive urbanites in major cities. Stunners in high proportions in all of those cities.

From my experiences, HK women compared to Japanese women are not gentle. Rather, they have this control element and this "dog eat dog" big city mentality that is prevalent in Hong Kong. I call it a "rat race" culture and mentality.

Japanese women are gentle and generally demure.

Visit both places and you will experience it firsthand.

Tokyo, for sure.
Demure ? I thought they were liberal as in the most liberal in South East Asia

What does demure have to do with being liberal?

So Chinese women are materialistic ? I think many foreigners are dating Filipino women because it is easier for them to converse with Filipinos when it comes to English. Also among all the Asians, many foreigners always say it is easier to be with a Filipino woman because of their culture. Philippines being exposed to Spanish for over 4 centuries and Americans for 50 years has made them a little comfortable with Western men.I have a friend who has dated Chinese, Japanese and Thai when he was younger and now he is 17 years married to a Filipino woman and he said, he chose to be married to her because it's easier to blend with her and her culture ( as being a product of Spanish and American culture ) compare to other Asians he dated.

Frankly speaking, HK women are not regarded very highly. HK women are arguably the most economically liberated and successful in Asia, and as such are stereotyped as materialistic, domineering, and unfeminine. Many HK men go to the mainland or SE Asia to find wives rather than dating the local girls. Of my 4 aunts living in HK only 1 managed to get married. There was even a popular TV show where single women in their 30's and 40's were coached up to improve their prospects of finding a man.

On the outside, I have found most Japanese women to be demure as they live in a male dominated culture.
I believe that is changing, though.

I agree. I have found some HK women to be domineering and demanding. Not all, but some.
It seems to be part of their "fast paced city, rat race culture", which contributes to this.

there really is no difference all women from japan, HK, korea are all very feminist...economic success does that to you
the reason they would go with a non-EA man is because they are sick of the machoism and think a white man would be more understanding to the feminist cause
