Let’s assume you get an offer which will double your salary, negligible tax.
Let’s assume you don’t speak any Asian languages and don’t have an Asian spouse.
Where would you work and live for a short stint? (Say 2-3 years)
(Looking at E. Asia not N or S within it)
Additionally, say China offered you 2x or 3x your salary to go there and work for 2 years. The only condition - keep your mouth shut about anything to do with policy, political things, government.
Would you go?
You are forgetting to separate N. Korea and S. Korea.
No that’s fine. I stand with their unification.
Singapore, Vietnam and Philippines aren’t in East Asia.
East covers southeast.
Actually, no, it doesn’t.
East Asia is the eastern region of Asia, which is defined in both geographical and ethno-cultural terms. The modern states of East Asia include China, Japan, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Taiwan. China, North Korea, South Korea and Taiwan are all unrecognized by at least one other East Asian state due to severe ongoing political tensions in the region, specifically the division of Korea and the political status of Taiwan. Hong Kong and Macau, two small coastal quasi-dependent t East Asi...
East Asia and Southeast Asia are different.
It is not south part of east Asia.
Not for this poll. As I explained in the text.
I guess if you can make up your own poll, you can make up your own geography.
For credibility pls change to East Asia or South East Asia.
Am I the only voter for Vietnam?
Women. Food. It’s a no-brainer.
Geographical semantics aside, it is an odd selection of countries. If you’re including Vietnam why not Thailand?
EDIT: I assume that’s in “Others”.
why not Thailand?
Or Malaysia? Personally, I’d go crazy cooped up in Singapore.
Sure. Can’t change it anymore though.
It was a great 2 years for me there. Every long weekend it is incredibly easy to fly all over the place for wonderful vacations, but you’re based in a clean, safe place for the kids.
Could you list what’s in “Others”? It would add clarification.
I start to go stir crazy in Singapore after about three or four days, same as with Hong Kong. The accent is abrasive, the people are annoying, and the heat and humidity is stifling. There is some good food though.
I went with Vietnam. Beautiful country and wonderful food. I’m not sure about safety for the kids, though, so I’d have to look into that.
I’ve already lived in China, Taiwan, and Singapore, so I crossed those off the list.
