Definitely Hawaii which is non-White.
Xinjiang and Tibet in China have ethnic automonous status, so are not special.
Harbin is still mainly Han Chinese with a Russian minority.
Macau's streets look very Portuguese though Chinese people are everywhere seen.
Naha is like Okinawan+Japanese+American

The biggest activity was probably the Mexican kids driving up and down the main seaside drag blaring Norteno music on Friday night. There were a few touristy places catering to tourists, but nothing like the Senor Frogs and Hard Rock cafes that pop up in other Mexican tourist beach resorts. Not even as touristy overall as somewhere like Cabo(or San Felipe, which just seems to be a place for American college kids and retirees for the most part). Much of Baja in general though seems different than the rest of Mexico with the heavy influence from California to the north.
We were there several years ago, the week following Christmas. I heard and read more English than Spanish. Maybe we only saw the more touristy parts of Loreto, I dunno.

I once read on Nat Geo Magazine that the Tex-Mex border towns can feel quite different both from the rest of the USA and Mexico....

15th/10th district of Vienna. Feels like somewhere in south-eastern Europe.

Pros: great Balkan food, cheap, low rents.
Cons: relatively untidy, high crime (still pretty laughable, though )
