I don't think you'll find a highly populated Asian community in Florida like you would in California. I think Miramar has a sizable Asian population though.

The asian population is so abundant in California since it is closer to Asia. But we do have asian communities here in Florida.

I am a Chinese immigrant. I don't speak or write perfect English. In response to OP, I think the one of the reasons that Florida doesn't have a large Asian population is that Florida doesn't have clusters of top notch universities or/and high tech valleys.

To my knowledge Miramar, or is it Mira Mesa, in North County San Diego is often referred to as Manila Mesa for its high Filipino population. And San Gabriel in Los Angeles is sometimes referred to as the Little Republic of China.

Um, I am not sure, but I can honestly say that UF and UM are good universities. I am not too sure about FSU, but the other 2, definatly. And UF has a huge population of students from other countries. In fact, my cousin (she's full Korean, I am half) really wanted to go to UF, but her dad said no because she would be too far from maryland (where they are from).

I think he is referring to Miramar, Florida.

Los Angeles has a 11.4% of its population being of asian descent. NYC is 12.1%, not only did that surprise me because I think of LA as having more Asian people in general due to the Pacific rim location. I think it goes to show that it is all word of mouth and Asian families tend to congregate in areas more often than some other ethnic groups may necessarily. Orlando is not filled with Asians like one suggested, but there is definitely a good sized and represented Asian community in the heart of Orlando. I know several Asian descents are represented, but Vietnamese and Chinese seem to be the most common.
