Asia is the most popular destination for wester men looking for serious relationships over seas. Specifically the Philippines draw the most foreigners, but other countries such as Thailand, China, and Vietnam also make the list. Here are some notable sites and resources to check out if you're considering traveling to Asia.

Dating Sites

Asian Dating

Asian Dating is one of the largest and most popular international dating sites out there. It's not aimed at any one country on the continent, but you can find large amounts of members in the Philippines, China, Vietnam, Thailand, and even some lesser known countries like Cambodia. AD doesn't use a PPL payment model and you're free to exchange contact info with other members.

Filipino Cupid

Filipino Cupid is the largest site dedicated to connecting western men with women in the Philippines. Like it's sister site Asian Dating, Filipino Cupid is not a PPL dating site and allows you to communicate directly with other members. The site itself is honest but not all its members are (use common sense when using the site). 

Christian Filipina

Christian Filipina is a site for western men looking for a serious relationship with a Christian woman from the Philippines. The site features a higher level of security and customer service than most international dating sites. If you're a Christian man with an eye toward Asia, this should be your go to dating site.

China Love Match

China Love Match is one of the larger non PPL sites catering to western men interested in meeting women from China. There's a large and active user base on the site. The company also takes a strong stance against PPL sites and scammers.

Thai Cupid

Thai Cupid is hugely popular in Thailand. It's in the Cupid Media circle of sites (Asian Dating, Filipino Cupid, etc). Like most Cupid media sites it allows for direct communication with other members. The site has a decent level of security but you will still need to date smart to use it safely.

Vietnam Cupid

The Vietnamese equivalent of Filipino Cupid and Thai Cupid, Vietnam Cupid is largest international dating site for Vietnamese women.
