I think relative to its size, Koreans have made a large global footprint, perhaps more then any other Asian country besides India, China, and Japan. Indonesia, despite it's huge population, doesn't seem to even equal Korea in global influence and having such a large diaspora. Perhaps Indonesia has a larger diaspora in other Muslim majority countries? I'm not sure.

Not that many live in the US, but Iran seems to have a decent sized diaspora. Perhaps many of them were escaping the Iranian revolution, I'm not sure, but I've seen many Iranians around the world in my travels. They are a very friendly people, not something I expected, also something surprising to me is how many Iranians in diaspora speak really good English.

The Filipino diaspora seems to be quite large, especially relative to Malaysia or Indonesia, and even other SE Asia countries like Vietnam and Thailand.

If you exclude China and India, the one with the largest diaspora is probably the Philippines. But Filipinos tend to assimilate quicker than the other nationalities.

There has been a small scale immigration of Koreans into Mexico starting in the early 1900's consisting mainly of agricultural workers. The largest population of Koreans in Mexico is centered in Mexico city with much more recent immigrants involved in small business ventures.


Where I'm at we have a large Asian population including Koreans. Also many Vietnamese and Cambodians who were refugees from the Vietnam War. Probably our biggest Asian population here are Filipinos.

Not only tourists, lots of Koreans started establishing businesses in the Philippines. A lot of them cater to Korean tourists, but the owners themselves are Koreans and are living long term there.

Yes many tourists but also well off Koreans who go to school there or who are retired especially in Dumaguete in Negros Oriental.

they are starting to have their own Korea Town.


the Chinese have been there even before the colonization. even in places where you don't expect immigrants to live, you would be surprised that some families have Chinese ancestry, even in the Muslim South and in the hinterlands of the Cordilleras

Yes these I know. In fact a few of those Peruvian-Chinese have made their way up to Colombia, especially the city of Cali and other cities in the south of the country like Pasto. Farina is a popular Colombian singer of Peruvian-Chinese ancestry.

Well, there is a considerable portion of Filipinos overseas who work as OCWs (overseas contract workers) and aren't really settlers or immigrants in the traditional sense. You'll find many who work in the maritime industry (both cargo ships and the cruise ships) as well.
