Many Asian girls won't admit it but they are primarily looking for foreigners when using online dating apps and websites (if they weren't, why would they write their profiles in English?).

As a European or as an American, this means you will get much interest from girls and all that will translate into an incredible number of dating opportunities. If you have 1 or 2 matches per day on Tinder in your home country, you can expect to get at least 20 or 30 per day upon landing in Asia.

All guys have a different reaction to their newfound success. Some will go on a banging spree to compensate for years of sex drought. Others will become insanely picky, rejecting girls they would have dreamed of dating just a few months back. What is certain is that all of them feel much happier with this situation.

Each country in Asia has its own challenges though. First of all, you need to know what are the best dating websites/apps in the region. You can read my guide Best Dating Apps and Websites in Asia to help you with that.

Second, you need to know the characteristics of each countries: What are the girls like? How easy is it to date them? Do they accept an important age gap? Are they conservative or open-minded? What are the best cities for online dating? Etc.

The objective of this article is to answer those questions. If you still have some interrogations after reading it, please just leave a comment below and I'll do my best to help you with them.

These are the 10 best (easiest) countries in Asia to meet girls online:

1) Indonesia
It is simple to understand why Indonesia is the best country in Asia to meet girls. It has a population of 260 million people, among which an estimated 10 million are single girls from the middle class aged between 18 and 40. Considering there are less than 10,000 single male expats living in the country, that's about 1,000 single girls per foreigner.

In a city like Jakarta, you could probably spend your entire days dating and meeting girls, and yet you would still have to pass on great opportunities due to a lack of time.

Note that the situation in Bali is different than in the rest of the country. The number of foreigners is much higher and therefore the competition is more tense.

- Indonesian girls are exotic, fun, friendly, open-minded and easy-going.
- An age gap of up to 15 years between a man and a woman is common and accepted.
- Very high ratio of available girls / foreigner
- Contrary to stereotypes, Indonesian girls are not particularly conservative, especially in the main cities (Jakarta, Surabaya, Bali)
- Bahasa Indonesia, the local language, is easy to learn

- Some girls can be a bit overly religious. I also noticed there is an increasing number of girls wearing a veil which I don't find very attractive.
- Lack of tourist activities in the main cities, huge traffic jams.
- Higher cost of living (accommodation, food, alcohol) compared to Vietnam/Thailand
- Very few foreign girls online (except in Bali)

Best Cities/Provinces:

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, OkCupid, Tinder, IndonesianCupid, (for sugar babies), Badoo

2) Philippines
The Philippines is basically a copy of Indonesia with a Spanish/American influence and Catholicism instead of Islam as the major religion.

The country attracts more foreigners, especially Asians (Koreans, Japanese), yet it is still a great destination for single guys.

- Some of the hottest girls in Asia (some with Latin and Western features)
- Easy to get plenty of matches and dates
- English widely spoken

- Many conservative girls (Catholic)
- Most large cities are boring
- Slow internet
- American way of life = Obesity is developing rapidly and at least 20% of girls are overweight

Best Cities/Provinces

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, OkCupid, Tinder, FilipinoCupidPinaLoveSeeking (for sugar babies), Badoo

3) Vietnam
Vietnam has the reputation of having the most beautiful girls in Asia, but also the most conservative (I confirm both). While it is relatively easy to get a date with a local girl, you may struggle if you want to kiss her or sleep with her. They will politely tell you that they are keeping themselves for marriage, or at least for a serious relationship.

For this reason, Vietnam is not the best country for those looking for easy one-night stands. Instead, I would recommend it to guys who are searching for a serious girlfriend or a potential wife.

- The most beautiful girls in Asia: Slim, fair skin, feminine, classy (but often surgically-enhanced with fake boobs, fake nose, etc)
- An age gap of up to 20 years between a man and a woman is acceptable
- Easy to get at least a date in coffee shops, dessert houses, etc.
- A lot of interesting things to do for tourists in Hanoi or Saigon
- A higher education level compared to Indonesia, Thailand or the Philippines

- Conservative girls who often live with their parents until marriage
- English skills sometimes poor (and Vietnamese is hard to learn)
- The character is not as easy-going and fun as Filipinas or Indonesian girls.

Best Cities/Provinces
Saigon/HCMCHanoi, Danang, Nha Trang

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, OkCupid, Tinder, VietnamCupidSeeking (for sugar babies), Badoo, Zalo, Beetalk (read my article about the best dating apps in Vietnam)

4) Singapore
Most likely, you won't meet a Singaporean girl in Singapore. However, you'll find it relatively easy to match with European, American, Australian, Indonesian or Filipino girls.

- Lots of girls from various nationalities and backgrounds
- Many highly-educated and independent women
- An enjoyable, yet expensive city

- Dining and drinking out is pricey
- Not that many good looking girls
- High competition among foreigners

Best City

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, OkCupid, Tinder, Paktor, SingaporeLoveLinks, Seeking or SugarBook (for sugar babies)

5) Thailand
Many foreigners assume that Thailand is great for meeting girls, but in reality the country is a disappointment.

As an expat or permanent resident, you will get plenty of opportunities with lower to middle-class girls. Rich girls may be harder to get, especially online.

As a tourist though, you will not be an interesting candidate except for older girls, prostitutes and ladyboys.

- Convenient and interesting country for foreigners and tourists (even larger cities)
- Open-minded, fun and hot girls
- Decent english skills

- High number of prostitutes and ladyboys
- A lot of competition among foreigners

Best Cities/Provinces:
BangkokChiang Mai, Isaan Province (Udon Thani). Avoid Pattaya and Phuket.

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, OkCupid, Tinder, ThaiCupidThaiFriendlySeeking (for sugar babies), Badoo, Skout

6) Taiwan
Sexy Taiwanese model Jennifer
For geopolitical reasons, the country has a positive view of foreigners, especially Americans and Europeans. As a result, girls are generally easy to approach and they make fantastic girlfriends.

- A lot of very educated, English-speaking, independent girls
- Rather low competition from other foreigners
- Great country for an expatriation

- 70% of the girls look like nerds/bookworms
- The most popular apps/websites are in Chinese

Best Cities/Provinces:
Taipei, Kaohsiung

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, OkCupid, Tinder, Paktor, I-Part (in Chinese)

7) Cambodia
Hot Cambodian model Sunisa Kim
A few years ago when I first visited Cambodia, more than half the girls on dating sites were prostitutes, ladyboys or girls trying to find a way out of poverty. Things are much better today, as the middle class is slowly growing in size.

- Friendly, fun and genuine girls
- Low competition from other foreigners (usually older guys with limited financial means)

- Still quite many prostitutes and ladyboys online
- The number of middle class girls is still limited

Best Cities/Provinces:
Phnom Penh, Siem Reap

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, Tinder, Badoo, AsianDating

8) Malaysia
Malaysia is an interesting country for guys who can't decide if they want to date Chinese, Indian, Malay, Indonesian, Filipino or Western girls. Another advantage is that Malaysian girls are often educated and they have decent salaries.

However, I've noticed that there is only a small number of girls on datings sites and apps. Also, on average I don't find them particularly attractive.

- Girls from different nationalities and ethnicities

- Not a large choice available on dating sites
- Many conservative and religious girls
- Some girls will not date guys outside of their ethnicity

Best Cities/Provinces:
Kuala Lumpur

Best Dating Apps
Bumble, Tinder, Paktor, OkCupid, MalaysianCupid, Badoo, Seeking (for sugar babies)

9) Myanmar
Burmese Model Khin Coco
Burmese girls are not very active yet on dating sites and apps, but the country is popular with female tourists. For this reason, it is relatively easy to meet Western girls over there, especially in Yangon and Mandalay.

- Many desperate Western girls
- Some interesting cities to visit

- Few Burmese girls online
- Poor internet

Best Cities/Provinces:
Yangon, Mandalay

Best Dating App
Tinder, Bumble

10) Laos
Laotian model Eileen Khaosanga
Lao girls can be quite pretty, but you won't find many on dating sites. Even worse, it is officially forbidden for foreigners to date Lao girls.

- Some pretty girls
- Many female tourists and backpackers

- Conservative country

Best Cities/Provinces:
VientianeLuang PrabangVang Vieng

Best Dating App
Tinder, Bumble

I've not tried online dating in a few additional Asian countries like South Korea, Hong Kong and China, which is why they are not in this list.

  1. I'm a digital nomad and I've been living and traveling throughout Southeast Asia since 2011. So far China is the best country for app/online dating in my experience. It's easy to get dates in China via WeChat app. There's not much competition from other foreigners. Shanghai, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Hangzhou, Wuhan, Chongqing, Chengdu are the best places. CouchSurfing is also a good way to meet Chinese girls that speak English and can hold good conversations. The girls I've met online in China were more attractive and have better jobs than the girls I've met online throughout Southeast Asia. Most of the girls I've met in Guangdong wouldn't let me pay for dinner!

  2. while viets are definitely hotter thais put out soooo much easier

  3. What about girls in Laos? Any difference with girls in Vietnam or Myanmar?

    1. Laos and Myanmar is quite similar... only a minority of girls are open-minded and willing to meet with foreigners... the rest are conservative, village girls... You can have a relationship easily but forget about one-night stand... furthermore, you are not even allowed to have sex with a Laotian girl... Vietnam girls are super pretty and more modern, especially in Hanoi and HCMC...

  4. I'm not Caucasian but Mexican-American (or Chicano, Hispanic, Latino) and ever since I started using social media, many Asian Women (born in Asia) have been adding me randomly. Especially on Facebook with lots of requests from Indonesians and Filipinas. I always accept them.

    There were so many requests that it challenged my worldview: how is it possible that so many Asian Woman can be attracted to me. Keep in mind I'm light-browned skinned, black hair, 5'5 feet tall Hispanic guy. I wanted to understand why they wanted to be friends with me and if there were more girls like this in Asia.

    I tested myself with the website AsianDating. After I finished my application and information on my profile, what a shock! It didn’t turn long before I realized so many Asian women wanted me.

    I was too overwhelmed! It's easy to get them as well ( but must be very careful not to get scam) All it really takes is to visit them and communication is the key of course money is important since these women care about 'social status'.

    Some things bother me with them, for instance I don't like when Indonesian Woman & Filipina cal me "Spanish Guy" because I wasn't born in Spain. But reply I'm Mexican-American yet they still call me Spanish guy SMH.

    I dated all races of Women in America [White,Black, Latina, Asian , other, Mix] but now days I only like Asian girls from Asian continent.

    Apart from AsianDating, Facebook will be best for getting an Indonesian because you can connect with them easy and later visit them once you get to know them. In Facebook Indonesians stick together like no other nationality or race. What I noticed is that you will have one Indonesian add you in Facebook, then many of her friends will add you too.

    Indonesian not bad getting an Indo-Girl if you are White (you know very well Asian Woman will flock to you because many Asian Woman don't want her Asian Male to dominate her).

    1. Hahahha.. As indonesian, i finds your observations is true and funny.

      But its not about Asian or Indonesia girls.

      Its about most of ppl sees mixed ppl/race (such as descendant of latinos, sons of mixed parent from Arab + Caucasian or children from mixed parent between Asian + Arab/Caucasian/black ) more handsome/preetier. Has better posture.

      Its biologically natural. Plants also has better descendant if mixed between different sub species. The best traits from all parents will pass to their descendant.

      So, in my understanding, its built in our insting to seeks better mate, to get better descendants.

    2. I'm mixed race guy, tall, dark hair and tan skin and I have the same experience with Indonesian and Filipina women online. I have traveled to both countries and let me tell you, if you are a western guy (and yes that includes you) you are going to attract women there. Unlike many Latinas that seem to have a fetish for blue eyes, SE Asian women love what they perceive as "the Latin look". In Indonesia they love the Arab look which has a lot to do with their history and Philippines has a long history with both Spain and Mexico that didn't really die out until the Americans stepped in took over. There are a lot of similarities aesthetically between middle eastern and latino people and the ladies down there seem to dig it, which is great for guys like us. But just as a side note, I think most guys who put themselves out there on dating sites that serve Indonesia and Philippines are getting inundated with messages and interest from the women there. It definitely makes you feel special, but I think there's more to it than that actually being the case.

    3. Thank for the info :) on both of my replies. Yes, but these days of age interaccial dating, marriages, or sexuality activities ( fornication) is very common now days. All over the Globe that is. In America the promotion of dating Asian Woman is on high demand supported by the Media/ Intetnet this is why many MEN of all nationalities desire Asian Woman but not all men but those who want Asian Woman that is. The Blond hair and blue eye white girl once was highly desired by men in the 90's but in early 00's Latina the woman to took up with but later for some odd reason Asian Woman just took over as the most desired woman for Men. It's true Asian Woman age slowly compare to White Woman, Latina, and Black woman who at the age 30 " its HIT THE WALL" becuase many don't take care of themselves do to drinking and party and many do drugs which ruin a woman's beauty. And have bitchy feminist attitude which make many Men turn away from them of course Asian american woman do the same thing. I seen how many Men once adore their own kind of woman back then now turn to Asian Woman or be singal with no attention of settle down. That's why many go to Asia for example to renew their life and date Asian Woman. Not just White Males but also other Men of color as well tired of that feminists western woman issues. And many Asian men wonder why all these expats or tourist come to their country and become fuckacholics. To resist their frustrations so many been sexless in the West because woman here can falsely accuse you for rape and your life is spent in prison getting harassed by inmates for something that person didn't do. This is reality in USA I'm telling you. If Asia promotes feminists guess what? Expats will pack thier bags and leave those countries and move to Latin America or African countries. So for those Asian Men hating on your woman dating None Asians no worries step up your game and stop being shy. Girls are girls they fuck whoever they want to be please even if she has 3 boyfriends for her needs let it be she does what they are born to do is serve us men to our pleasure and give her money for her needs and off she goes buying a fake leather purse to show off to her friends. It's Hpergamy what can you say? And..... CHEERS..... 😛

  5. Um, no, Asians girls do not all look the identical.

  6. Shanghai is a city thats pretty GOOD for casual relationships with girls who are educated and looking to meet interesting western men. It is worth pointing out however if you are an ESL teacher you wont get a lot of interest as China views these kinds of guys as bums who cannot get a job back home. If you are an english teacher it is better to say you work doing engineering or some kind of business. Germans have the most success banging Chinese in Shanghai as there is a view taken that all things German are good quality.

    A poster mentions using wechat to find girls in China, that is not accurate and is not an easy way to do it as Chinese girls are not accustomed to being hit on by random strangers online. It is also not easy to distinguish if the woman is single or not by looking at who is nearby in the wechat function. In the old days an app called QQ could work because users can create a profile which would give a girl some idea of who the guy is. Wechat is not the same. It still works but is less popular but I have had success in Shanghai that way.

    In Shanghai, for online, you can get a good success ratio if you use ChinaLoveCupid, which is a dating website. A lot of girls pay to use the site meaning that they are contactable but if you dont act the cheapskate and pay to use the site as well, you will get tons of hits and its easy to set up a date.

    In my experience, in China (8 years and counting) usually you can be having sex on the 2nd date if the first one goes well. Sex partner (SP as its called in China) is pretty easy to get doing and I have had usually any 3 at one time for all the years I been living in China. All from online dating sites like the one I mention. In Shanghai also, there is quite a good western social scene so there are quite a few pickup bars (not meaning hooker bars) that can be good as well. There are hooker bars but its an expensive way to go about it, however you get a lot more BANG for your buck if you do as these girls are up for it but you have to put the effort in with your cash buying drinks all night.

    In China, even Shanghai you will never be short of female action if you can speak Chinese. If you travel to a place with not many westerners and can speak Chinese you will become very accepted.

    Depending on your own age in Shanghai you can expect to find either educated party girls up to the age of 30 or divorced / leftover women between 30-40. For a more stable situation it is better to look for women who are over 25 as they are far more mature. Women in their 30s who are single are usually well up for it if you get to the 2nd date.

    that is what China and Shanghai is like as of 2018.

  7. Does anyone here know the easiest/most favorable place to hookup with Chinese/East Asian looking girls? I'm torn between mainland China, Vietnam, or Taiwan.

  8. damn, really good writing, and you really know your stuff...thanks..
    from my few years in Asia, Im super attracted to Japanese girls, but seems near impossible to even get just a date...i wasn't there long though. Mainland China Guangzhou girls I think might be the nicest in the world, treat you like king, fun, friendly, easy to meet, trade contact info, date.
    I think Taiwan girls are also very smart, sexy, friendly, .. sophisticated.
    Chiang Mai Thailand you have to put in some hard work but potential is there to meet, but more easy to meet like minded friends than dating opposite sex.
    thx for sharing.

  9. I just came back from Bangkok and I can say that the author of this blog is right-on point regarding what he says, especially regarding the pros (such as decent English skills among girls) and the Cons (I had a terrible time trying to figure out normal girls from ladyboys).

    However, I didn't feel that there were a lot of expats in the bars and clubs I went to...Perhaps it was because of the areas I was in, but overall for my first time in Asia I must say I was impressed.

  10. Manila is far away from best places in the Phillippines. Go to Iloilo or some other smaller town. Lot of beautiful girls and no competion :)

  11. I couldn't disagree more with you about Thailand and was never "disappointed". I never had a problem meeting and sleeping with girls there. As a white tourist in my late forties I never go without attention, and girls 18-50 are easy targets. - Age difference doesn't mater at all. . Pattaya is a dirty city but it's loaded with both real Thai girls looking for a husband and prostitutes. What's always worked for me is "treat a lady like a whore, and a whore like a lady." Seriously, I've banged so many hookers for free by just pretending to be interested in a long term relationship with them. I've also banged a lot or good middle class girls I meet online (ThaiFriendly) including a good number of virgins. Seriously, few things in life are better than banging a 18-21 year old Thai beauty for her first time! Bangkok is awesome, as is Hua Hin, and Cha-Am. I agree though that Phuket isn't that great for meeting women - although the southern part of the island is awesome for beaches and relaxing vacation. Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai are also kind of a bust for picking up, but even there I've had luck occasionally. I speak Thai a good bit, but sometimes it's best to pretend I can't because many of them dislike expats. Maybe it's just the girls I attract because I'm white, but from my experience they do not like darker skinned farang (foreigners) like hispanic, Arab and especially black. Most Thai gils dream of having a light skinned baby. China has also been very very good to me and I've had a lot of success in Shanghai, Hainan, and Nanning. Chinese girls, unlike Thai, love it when you try to speak Mandarin with them.

  12. Shanghai guide as of 2019:

    I lived in Shanghai for this decade and when first came things like wi-fi and iphones werent even out yet. People were getting into hooking up online and it went through a boom. It is still a very good way to hook up with women in Shanghai. Best route is to use I have banged many women from this website. The key is to play the little game about how good the country is and that you are looking for a serious relationship / marriage etc. Most women who use this site have that as their preference but it does not mean exactly that if you charm them the right way. If you are actually looking for a Chinese wife though then it is perfect dating site with a lot of women as paying members that can be contacted. However a lot of women have been on this site for years and still no takers. You will get tons of opportunities if you upgrade for just one months membership and then initiate the "do you have wechat" approach. Chinalovecupid for the first port of call and create a good profile and DO NOT say you are an English teacher. It is considered a naff job to have in China these days. Best one is engineering. Also Chinese women seem to like Germany so it might pay you to even say you are German if you are just interested in playing the field. If you upgrade as a member and actually live in the same area as the girls you are looking for you will get laid within a week using that website.

    It used to be a lot easier for online hookups when craigslist and another site called enjoyshanghai were functional. Infact was by far the easiest way to hook up in Shanghai for years. These have not been replaced so you are basically left with Chinalovecupid or Asian Dating.

    For those who are interested in meeting girls out and about. Shanghai is hard to pull in the bars and clubs but not impossible. Hooker bars are expensive so dont bother unless you got money to burn. There are a couple though - Judys and Manhattans. You can find a girl in there any night of the week no problem. Cost usually between 1000-2000 RMB with no set rules and all the girls are there as freelancers as well. There are lot of vietnam, philippines and cambodian girls who work these joints. the girly bars are too expensive and results never guaranteed.

    Another thing about Shanghai (and China all over) is hotels are totally ok with guests and dont even care about it. So when planning it, that consideration is not needed, what is a good idea instead is to get a place that is good value for money and close to the action zones. if you are in Shanghai here are two places I would recommend for taking back your asian:

    World Union Serviced Apartment
    Tymis Plaza Hotel

    The other way for guaranteed success is to learn the language and approach the women. If you go down that route and become even half fluent in Chinese you will have an unlimited supply of girls and you just add them to your wechat list and meet them whenever you like. Chinese girls are well up for it if you can speak their language. Shanghai is a bit harder than other major Asian cities for quick results but once you get used to the place (and certainly use wechat app) you will have a few fuck buddies that you can hook up with "when you are both free" and with the hotel industry so useful in Shanghai its a good place for that.

    1. Very useful report. If anyone else was an expat in another Asian city, it would be great if they could share their tips with everyone else here.

  13. Been in Jakarta for 2 months and its been an utter disappointment. Most of the women you end up with are darker low class hijab girls. Tinder and other social apps are sluggish and most women dont seem to be friendly or even make eye contact.

    I'm not sure why this place gets so much hype. Not worth it imo
