Friendliest: Taiwan and Japan
Least friendly: Singapore

if you're a Caucasian everyone in Asia will be friendly to you.

As a Caucasian male who has traveled to most of them I'd say Yemeni and Indonesian people were the friendliest I met.

Despite their reputation, I've found the Muslim countries friendliest/safest, in general. This includes the Middle East. I haven't found any unfriendly, but I've not found anywhere unfriendly.

Some "Muslim countries" may have a lot of chaos (political movements, riots, terror attacks), but other than that they are safe. When I was in Cairo I went out after midnight every day and never got worried. I dare not do that in many American cities.

Seoul three times.

I think S.Korean men are just very racist against foreigner's. The service industry is pretty average in S.Korea also. They still have another 20 years or more to go before they can match the level of service in Japan.

I've found Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Philippines to all be very friendly to Westerners-- Taiwan especially.

I've been told mainland China is less friendly, but I haven't been there yet.

Woah! Somebody's skin is burning!
