I'm really hoping to hear personal, firsthand experiences from guys who are of African descent.
Generally speaking between Asian and Latin America, which continent would be better to extensively travel for a man who's of African descent? Which region generally has the best women, food, culture, entertainment, landscape, quality of living, and weather?
If your trying decide between Asia and Latin America, I recommend you can go to http://www.expatkings.com which is a website dedicated to black men and go purchase the E-book at http://www.amazon.com entitled "BEST COUNTRIES FOR BLACK MEN" by author Steve Love.

It depends. How well do you do in the US and with which demographic? Describe your appearance.
It depends on a lot of things, besides appearance (which matters a lot in Asia) and race (which will be different as far as your treatment in many countries in both Asia and Latin America.) It depends on your temperament. If you're an emotional, outgoing kind of person, Latin America, or Southeast Asia likely are better for you. If you're a more quiet introverted type of person, East Asia probably would be better. As far as race, every country will be different. Brazil is different than Argentina for example. Vietnam is different than Taiwan or Japan.
At the end of the day, after finally getting abroad, you just need to actually travel, stay a few days or weeks and see what you like in a country, then make your further plans. All the prognostications made based on internet speculation aren't worth a day of actually traveling.
I live in Thailand.
The people of African decent are treated like shit here!
If you think that Jim Crow (for idiots before civil rights in America before the 1960's) was too nice than Asia is a great place.
THAILAND- Where whites are treated like niggers and black people are treated much worse.
Jonny Law's Recommendation!
Go to Latin America if you want to be treated decent!
Why not try africa? Blacks are always saying black is beautiful so put your money and your dick where the mouth is
But all jokes aside I don't think black Americans will do well in Africa in terms of marriage. They don't have the culture or customs or language. Hence it is bigger gap than for a white African who understands African culture.
If you read what black africans say, they say don't marry outside your tribal group. If you do better a white man than an American black or a jamaican. In other words they are thinking if you cross the tribal group boundary then marry up. I guess they figure they sold those blacks off as slaves so it is going down looks like yo bruthas in afrika don't want you back
Aside from a brief visit to Mexico when I was a child and some time in certain parts of the US (e.g. Miami, some towns in Georgia), I've never been to Latin America. But Asia and Latin America are so varied, I don't think there is an answer to some parts of our question.
Asia has some great locations. There are beautiful tropical islands. There are dry deserts, and snow capped peaks. There are crowded smoggy cities. You can find all that in Latin America, too.
I'm white, so I can't give you first-hand experience on being black. I live in Indonesia, and back when Nigerians were in the news for committing so many crimes, an African friend of mine told me it was hard for him to get taxis. I know of one Nigerian who was put in jail on apparently trumped up drug charges and eveutually put to death. There have been a lot of African drug dealers and con artists in Indonesia. An African tried a blue money scam on me and my wife but didn't succeed. The hard working Africans working in import/export have to deal with the negative image painted by scam artists. Maybe they've cleaned that up some. I dont' know.
I don't think blacks would have as easy of a time finding a girlfriend in Indonesia as whites or locals. But some do marry with local women.
Some parts of Latin America have a high percentage of people of African descent. Brazil would be a good example of that. A man of African descent might blend in well there.
What kind of girls do you like? If you like Asian girls, well, Asia may be the place. If you like Latinas, well, you could go to Latin America.
