SOUTHEAST ASIAN NATIONALITIES THAT DIDN’T MAKE THE LIST
[Word Count: 2678]
BURMESE have no culture for locals meeting foreigners without payment. Huge language barrier!
LAOTIANS are illegal (US $1k fine) for foreigners to date. A shame as they’re the prettiest
MALAY girls are obese, unattractive and not worth the effort
SINGAPOREANS are more Chinese than the Chinese themselves (not a good thing)
Khmer women are cute, soft-spoken, conflict-shy and average looking. They’re also incredibly short! Much more so than the women in neighboring countries.

You can test this by smiling to random people around town. In Thailand everyone will smile back at you in a genuine display of happiness. In Cambodia, women will make strange faces and think you’re insane for smiling when there’s nothing to smile about. If this doesn’t face you, or you simply want a relationship with any type of Cambodian girl regardless of;
A) her past, present or future profession
