Discuss international visas, immigration and citizenship issues.
I don't think it is possible to become a citizen of places like China, Japan, and Korea, unless you are ethnically 'one of them.' So if you are of Asian ancestry and are a Westerner, I think you could have a chance. It is actually very easy to get a residence permit for China, but for 1 year at a time. This is what ESL teachers get. Simply come on a Z visa and then your employer will get you a 1 year residence permit. Resigning at ESL jobs or finding another one is very easy, so that's one way. You would only have to take care of it once a year. Probably the same with many countries.
I think Cambodia has an investment residence program, if I recall correctly. For the Philippines, I think marriage is the easiest way to residency. And it is Westerner friendly too.
Taiwan is possible to become a citizen. But its not to say its easy to become one.
Though if I had to choose between these 4 (china, japan, korea or taiwan), taiwan would work okay for PR. high quality of life, standard of living and cleanliness beats china al together. I even longed to be out of china.
