go anywhere where the main language isn't english.
A bartender told me this while I was in Guadalajara Mexico:

"If you aren't careful here with the women, you will be married in a week."

:lol:

That's what I was thinking. All of those places are not good for an Asian male to be in.

Australia is terrible and full of racist aggressive fuckwits and spoiled women, probably even worse than America in this regard.

South Africa is a destitute post-apartheid state that has some of the worst crime rates in the world and an ingrained race/class system.

Prague is the least worst option out of these 3 but Czech's aren't big fans of asians because from what I heard there are a lot of Vietnamese fob immigrants in the city who ruin it for any asian travelers. Basically they associate asians with poor migrant street hawkers and shit. The only good thing about Prague is that at least you can catch a train to Poland or nearby EE countries that are far cooler to hang out in. Prague is a very neat looking city but the people are kind of tools. I have met Czechs before and wasn't impressed in the least since they consider themselves an up and coming country and come off as kind of arrogant and stand offish

I can tell you for certain that this has not been a positive thing at all. I've talked with quite a few asian-americans who have been to Prague and said they were looked down on by the locals. Basically the Vietnamese in Prague are mostly poor sellers/laborer types so it has created an overall bad impression of any asians in the city.

Ah, I see. As I said, I haven't been there in a long time. However, the university students in Prague might be more open-minded regarding Asians. I met several Czech university students in Prague in the past who didn't seem to have anything against Asians. I guess it's like many other places where the more educated people are generally more liberal about social issues.

Food in Prague used to be fairly cheap (the best beers cost only 1 USD each!), but I don't know what prices are like there now. Maybe you should check some websites to find out the current prices of goods there.
