Japanese and South Korean would be near the top of my list. Many of them are respectful, hardworking and private.

What for you

Hmmm, every culture seems to have good and bad aspects about them. I do like the Japanese emphasis on honour, respect, politeness, but it can be a bit rigid and hierarchical (on the flip side). I like their simplicity, quirkiness, but don't like their over the top work ethic, or their huge emphasis on 'saving face' and suicide/honour (too much honour).

My favourites are the germanic, finnish and japanese culture. I like very much also the italian and french art (music, visual arts, etc.). And I have also some sympathy to the Poles.

I like Italian culture for it's extroversion and exuberance, as well as fine culture and food, but I dislike it's chaotic nature, the way they speak, and their hot-temperedness.

Italian and Spanish... Interesting and rich culture. Both loud as I don't like quiet people I get bored. I love Italian's Al fresco lunch and dinners with the whole family and with dancing after. I love their closeness to their families. Love their warmth ( beso - beso culture ) . Love the food. Love the language.

I love Spanish fiestas ( i got used to fiestas in my country ). I love their laid back lifestyle. Love their unique eating schedule. Love tapas and Paella. Love their warmth. Love their beso - beso culture. Love the language.

Mexican Culture ... They are also religious like Filipinos , Love their Mariachis, love Mariachi serenades, love their parties ( similar to Filipino parties ) and wedding ritual in the ceremony is the same as well. Love Enchiladas and Mexican salads. Love their accent and I love how softspoken they are also how sweet the men are when they express their love.

Brazilian -- they are warm, fun, outgoing, loud and they love to dance. Love Fejoada and Brigadeiro.

I like the Japanese culture; great food, polite and respectful people, their work ethic, modernity and their fashion sense is quite quirky.

Same with the Germans; they're efficient, I like German cars, they have a strong work ethic, friendly and clean people who make an effort to converse in English.

I agree with the east asian thing : Hard working, law abiding, productive, strong family values, and a history of being fierce warriors.

My top 5 are Japanese, German, British, Spanish, and Russian. Not necessarily in that order.
