[Insert Asian country 1] is probably the most over priced and boring country to travel to. I just don't understand why people keep doing that. [Insert Asian country 1] and [Insert Asian country 2] are the least interesting places to visit in Asia.

[Insert random country 1],[Insert random country 2], [Insert random country 3], all bunch of boring countries with bad [Insert random thing you don't like]. You get [Insert random number] times the fun travelling in [Insert random country 4],[Insert random country 5], [Insert random country 6]. The fact people even go to see [Insert random country 1] is mind boggling, to do what exactly, practice [Insert random language]?

I get that. That isn't so unusual in many cities as there are a lot of non-English speaking residents here.

That was my first time, though, where a worker in the US addressed me in Spanish first like that, and didn't even seem realize it until the very end when I spoke in English.

At this point in global history, it's the closest thing we have to a global standard universal language.

Singapore...LOL, well yeah, thanks Einstein who wrote the article. English is the official language (1 of the 4). That's like saying you will have no problem with English in Scotland.
Depending on where in Scotland, you may have much more success in Singapore.

ISRAEL! Essentially every educated person there speaks English well. Even most regular folks on the street speak decently. Almost all street signs and menus are in English too. It's practically an American colony. Most tourist spots take dollars too.
