They have a common theme of resembling many of the wealthiest, highest peaceful stable, and or best entertaining Asian nations. I want collective attention on these Asian nation destinations.

Say anything in brief talk conversation version relevant to at least one of these nations. Discuss current events, the not too far away future, what is going on, your thoughts or feelings on the country, regional outlook, culture, lifestyle, demographic analysis, and visiting or living there.

I hope to get tons of native Asian posters on this topic living around Hong Kong China, Vietnam, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Mainland China, Singapore, Macau, or Brunei. Let me know your experience, level of nationalistic pride, and encompassing national to Global international outlook.


Around 3 examples replica(Every post can end up much longer):

I. Vietnam seems to have the best World Class Independent Cafe wifi scene more than any other Asian nation lately. I wonder why?

II. Hong Kong is continuing to establish increasing sovereignty, yet there is an inevitable attached feeling diplomatic situation with Mainland China.

III. Brunei on Borneo Island seems to copy Singaporean identity separating outside of Malaysia, yet doesn't have too much in common with Singapore.

LOL, Vietnam doesn't belong on this list. It is neither rich, peaceful or entertaining. Most people are trying to get out if they could.

Hanoi was the wildest big city I have been to in Asia. Driving, cafes, bars & shopping. Lots of young people & new high rise buildings under construction. Of course, down the road Halong Bay was very nice.
Now that's entertaining !

Despite China's recent, much-lauded economic slide, life continues here more or less unabated. There hasn't been any perceptible change in life on the ground, here. People still have jobs, stuff is still being built, etc.

Buildings are filling up a bit slower than before; a mall near me has been open a year and is barely occupied, and this is in the CBD. The top three newest and most expensive condo developments here are all about 5% filled, however, more sensibly-priced, normal-people condos are selling alright.

Are you some kind of researcher or something? These are pretty interesting questions you raised!

why should Brunei have something in common with Singapore? Brunei is Malay and Muslim whereas Singapore is dominated by ethnic Chinese.

I don't think they will copy Singapore. Brunei is one of the oldest kingdoms in Southeast Asia. in fact, one of Malaysias state was once a Brunei territory but given to the Sultan of Sulo in the Philippines. Singapore is just created recently.

With what you said, I wonder why more and more expats/foreigners moved/are moving to Vietnam,
specially in Ho Chi Minh city, and specially here, where I live - Thao Dien, District 2, Ho Chi Minh city.

They came here to work or open businesses, many of them being English teachers.

1/ Vietnam is one of the biggest coffee export countries, so it's a cheap coffee source to open Cafe
2/ Chatting at Cafe' is Vietnamese young people's favourite
3/ To many others, they like to talk business at Cafe'
4/ Vietnamese always want to own business and opening a Cafe' is one of the most easiest way
These are my opinion.

Because the the Viet drink coffee and they have a rich and long coffee culture. That's why no one goes to Starbucks there.

Vietnam actually ranks well on Global Peace Index, and people feeling happy there.

Every Vietnamese person I met is very proud, and nationalistic on their home country of Southeast Asia. They even deeply miss Vietnam plenty of times when staying in countries such as the USA and telling heart filled stories on their time in Vietnam wanting to go back.


I know Vietnam is not one of the wealthiest Asian countries around, yet their currency is extremely incredible with the astronomical inflation making them feel wealthier. 1 American Dollar is literally $22,281 Vietnamese Dong(22 Thousand-23 Thousand), $50 USD = $1,114,050, $100 = $2,228,100, $1,000 American = 22,281,000, and $50,000 USD $1,113,050,000.

Without a doubt, Vietnam is one of the very entertaining Asian nations. All of the magic is there.
