Dating in Asia


Welcome to  We are here to help you discover the not-so-hidden world of dating sites in Asia, and more specifically South East Asia.  There’s a lot of junk or bullshit out there on the internet talking about these sites so we thought we’d give an honest opinion from our experience about each site.  Pick a country to hop over to a review of our favorite site in that country.

Dating for asian expats

Dating Asian women couldn’t possibly be any easier, assuming you’re coming from western countries.  There are so many ‘Farang Hunters’ in the larger cities in Asia that all you have to do is put yourself out there.  Most people don’t want to go to the smaller areas because of the lack of English speakers there but these places can also be real gems.

I’ve had experiences of walking into restaurants while traveling through and having girls take pictures of me.  Other times I’ve had girls yell “I love you! You so sexy!” as I’m leaving an open-air market or restaurant.  The situations are quite rare because of the culture but in places where there aren’t many foreigners you can basically have your pick of girls.
The issue with going out and finding a girlfriend (or girlfriends) is that a lot of these Asian girls are very shy.  At the same time, the general culture is heavily based around reputation and some girls don’t want to be seen as Farang Hunters.


The best way to deal with these issues is by getting on a dating site.  From my experience, these dating sites are EXTREMELY easy to find some company.  In every Asian country I’ve been to I’ve just created a profile on a dating site before arriving and lined up some dates.  This is extremely easy because the sites are location independent and you can just tell the girls that you’re already there.    Here are the countries that are covered so far:



Depending on what country you’re in or you’re planning on heading to – I’ve done some reviews of the sites in those countries so it’s easy to sign up.  Our favorite dating site to use is probably PinaLove because the girls in the Philippines speak great English and they REALLY like foreigners.  Our least favorite dating site is Date in Asia because the quality on there is just terrible..  If you subscribe to our email list I’ll even send you some generic tips tailored to these dating sites that will sky rocket your success!

Philippines or Vietnam girls?

Filipina vs Vietnames

Deciding where to find the best girls in South East Asia is hard.  There’s a lot to consider and it’s quite hard to figure out if you haven’t experienced these places for yourself.  While Thailand should get a mention, it’s just overly saturated with a lot of other guys there doing the same thing you’d be doing.  This drive up the competition and it’s harder to find quality girls because people have beat you to the punch so to speak.  Our recommendation for good girls that are easy to find is going to be in either the Philippines or Vietnam.  The important things to consider would be looks, living standards, personality, and ease to meet someone.




This is obviously the most important section for most guys so it comes first.  Unfortunately this is hard to decide for you because it’s so subjective.  These girls have basically the same types of bodies and they are both sexy.  The Vietnamese probably have a tiny bit more curves but that’s probably just coming from our personal experiences.

Winner: Tie



VietnamLiving Standards

Once again this is hard to decide for you because it depends on what you find important.  The standard of living is probably a bit higher in Vietnam for the same price but this of course comes down to which cities you are in.  The Philipippines is a bit more third world feeling but there’s something that we kind of like about that edginess.  If English speakers and the ability to have conversations is very important then you will have a better time in the Philippines as we believe this falls under standard of living partially.


Winner: Vietnam



Pick your poison.  Most of these girls can be a bit crazy and bubbly.  In our experience the Filipinas are a bit sweeter and seem a bit needier while the Vietnamese girls are SLIGHTLY more independent.  This is only ever so slightly though.  They are pretty much all bubbly and full of personality so that’s always a good thing.  They will all like to go out and dance but might be a bit shy at first.  English speaking comes in here because of the ability to communicate and we believe this gives the Philippines an unfair advantage.

Winner: Philippines


Ease of Access

This category is important all the way around  This includes how easy it is to get to the country and also how easy it is to find any kind of girl that fits your needs.  Vietnam is easier to get to and navigate because they have decent sized airports in every city that you could want to go to.  The Philippines has airports but most of the flights are a bit more expensive and sometimes you may need to take a boat since the whole country consists of a ton of islands.

When it comes to the girls there are a few ways to go about picking them up, no matter what you’re looking for.  The first way that we would be one of the best would be through dating sites.  We suggest PinaLove or FilipinoCupid for the Philippines dating sites and we suggest VietnamCupid for Vietnam.

The other way would be to meet them in person.  The best places to go would be either the bar or the mall.  Obviously you’re going to get the bad girls at the bar for the most part and the good girls at the mall for the most part so it depends on what you’re looking for exactly.  If you’re looking to date someone we suggest never dating someone that works at a bar or someone that is freelancing at the bar.  Go ahead and go to the mall and walk about and talk to the girls but if you feel weird doing this then hop on a dating site because it’s much easier.  You can find all kinds of girls from good girls to bad on there.

Living in Asia

Cost of Living in Thailand

cost of living bank thailandThe cost of living in South East Asia will obviously vary a lot depending on the city you decide to check out.  A general rule of thumb is that you can live on $1,000 per month at the time of writing this.  We’ll do a little comparison about the different areas and the price ranges.  This is actually a touchy subject because there are a lot of folks that say $1,000 per month is way too little and there are a lot of people that say it’s way too much.  This is just a guide for MOST people.  Sure, you’re going to have your thrifty shoppers that don’t want any luxury and you’re going to have those who have to have a ton of luxury.  We’ll talk about that too thought just so we don’t offend anyone.


Most of us have spent more time in Thailand than anywhere else for four reasons. The first two reasons are the cost of living, the third reason is the girls, and the fourth is the food.  For the girls, we recommend joining a dating site and it makes it easy.  Check out our Thai Friendly review if you’re interested in the ladies here (you wouldn’t be on this site if not).  You can definitely live in Thailand for under $800 and still be somewhat comfortable.  I’ve actually seen people doing it on $500 a month but I wouldn’t wish that terrible existence on anyone.  So what does $800 per month get you?  Here’s a breakdown of what you can do with this amount of money but we’ll also throw in a few other options.

–  $300

You can get a studio apartment almost anywhere in Thailand for this price, including electricity and internet.  The only place this may be hard to find would be in Bangkok or good locations in the south such as near the beach in Phuket.  However, you can definitely find them for this price in these cities.  You can even find them for half of this price in cities like Chiang Mai or Udon Thani.  These will generally be basic apartments that are set up like a hotel room and usually without a proper kitchen.

Food – $200

Great food for as little as $1 a meal.  Most of us from Western countries are going to want to a little more meat than what they offer at this price so sometimes you have to eat two meals.  If you are on a budget you can absolutely eat for less than $200 per month.

Educated Thai GirlsTransportation – $90

You can rent a motorbike in most cities in Thailand for $90 per month or less if you know where to go.  It helps a ton in the more touristy areas if you can speak a bit of Thai to negotiate the price but nevertheless, you should be able to find it for $90 either way.

Phone -$20

Getting setup with a phone in Thailand is quite simple and cheap.  For $20 you can get a phone number with minutes and data.  You will almost never need the phone number because everyone uses Line here.  The 6gb of data for this price will go a long ways as well because there are a lot of places with WiFi.

Entertainment – $200

This is the part that will be majorly lacking on this $800 per month budget.  A big beer is $2.50 at a bar and $1.50 at 7-Eleven. If you don’t drink at all then the $200 per month may actually be okay.  A lot of entertainment options in Thailand are quite cheap or even free.  Go stroll around the park, fishing, jog, play sports, meet new friends, or go swimming.  Most of these will be free so you can save a lot of money and occupy your time that way.  Oil massages are usually less that $10 for an hour but this doesn’t include any extras.  Depending on what kind of extra you get it can range from $10 to $40.  The $10 option is usually enough to satisfy you because these girls have great hand skills.  Get a Thai girlfriend that’s educated and has a job and you won’t have to spend much money on girls either.  You can find these hot Thai girls on one of a few different dating sites.  It’s pretty close but as of now we prefer the ThaiCupid.  You can check out our ThaiCupid review and make that decision yourself.  I’ve lived in Thailand for years now and have had a lot of success with online dating and want to help you guys do the same now.

So this is how you can live comfortably on $800 per month but what about the luxuries that we mentioned?  I honestly think it would be hard to spend any more than $2,000 per month in Thailand unless you were just being reckless.  If you plan to go out and be a degenerate then just get a normal apartment for $300 per month and spend $1,000 per month on drinks and women.  You’re still easily under the $2,000 per month threshold.  If you’re someone that wants luxury but not into paying for women, then you can spend $1,000 per month on a really nice apartment and $500 on entertainment and you’re still under the threshold here as well.
