I am a white American. I am learning Mandarin and would someday like to go to either Taiwan or Singapore. Which peoples is more friendly towards whites and Americans in general?
People are friendly everywhere if you are not an arrogant asshole. Find the place that interests you and go there. Also, you dont really need to speak Mandarin in Singapore, most people speak atleast some English, all of the street signs and things are in English.
Singapore, hands down.
There's a high concentration of natives/asians, indians, and whites. therefore many cultures are fusing and merging with eachother, which leas to some brilliant food and beautiful ladies, if you're into that whole half-sien kinda thing.
>Singapore, hands down
It's a repressive country though. And the climate is hot and humid with no seasons to speak of.
I second the not needing Mandarin, the Chinese are probably more likely to speak Hokien anyway. And everybody speaks English.
