Asia is one of the most popular destinations for holiday makers. There are so many things to do and see, but what about the lifestyle of Asian people? If you’re planning on traveling to Asia this year, then check out these 25 insights into the lifestyle of Asian living:
1. Everything is about the food
The first thing you’ll notice when you visit Asia is how much food plays a part in the culture. Food is always served with a smile, even if it’s something simple like an egg roll or some dumplings. The food itself is also cheap and delicious! You can buy a meal at any time of day for only $1-2 USD (depending on what country you’re visiting). And finally, there are so many different types of cuisine that will make your mouth water just thinking about them!
2. You will get a lot of advice on how to live your life
You will get a lot of advice on how to live your life.
There is no shortage of people who are willing to tell you how to eat, travel and even talk. They’ll tell you what do and what not to do in order for you not to offend anyone else or make any mistakes that may be viewed as rude in their culture.
In fact, some cultures have so many rules about eating and drinking that it can be hard for Westerners who visit those places simply because they don’t know all the rules!
3. You will be asked if you are single all the time
You will be asked if you are single all the time. By strangers, other Asians and people who live in your country. If you’re not Asian then it’s likely that someone has asked you this question before; however if this is your first time living in Asia, let me tell you: prepare yourself for an onslaught of questions regarding your love life! I’ve been asked by everyone from my taxi driver to my landlady (who also happens to be my mum).
I’ve had some pretty awkward conversations where I was forced into revealing whether or not I had a boyfriend or girlfriend at any given moment–and even worse: when someone finds out that I’m single! They’ll often go on and on about how “unlucky” or “desperate” they feel for me because they themselves are taken (or married). It doesn’t help that most cultures consider being single as something negative which needs fixing fast — especially since marriage is considered an important milestone in most Asian countries.”
4. There are no social norms when it comes to eating, so you will find yourself eating on the street with strangers, snack stalls and food carts
In Asia, food is a big part of the culture. You will see people eating on the street, in parks and at food stalls. Eating is not just something you do to survive; it’s an experience that brings people together.
You can buy food from street vendors or restaurants and even go to a food court if you want something more formal than just grabbing something from a stall.
5. The weather can be unpredictable, but there is always a way to stay warm… even in shorts!
The weather in Asia can be unpredictable, but there is always a way to stay warm. It may be hot and humid one day, or cold and rainy the next. To deal with these extremes, people dress in layers so they can adjust as needed. This means that you’ll see many Asians wearing shorts year round!
In addition to dressing for climate change, there are other ways that people adapt their wardrobe based on what’s going on in their environment. For example: if you go swimming at night time when it’s warm outside but then go home where it’s cold inside your house (or apartment), then this could mean putting on more clothes than usual because of temperature changes between indoor spaces versus outdoor ones
6. You will learn a lot about different cultures around Asia and meet many people from different countries across the world
Living in Asia will open your eyes to a world of different cultures and languages. You will learn how to communicate with people from all over the globe, and even get a taste of their culture.
The best part about living in Asia is that you get to know locals who share their own unique way of life with you, so you can experience it firsthand!
7. The water smells like fish but tastes fine! Don’t let this deter you from drinking it!
The water here tastes fine, but it smells like fish. The reason for this is that the water is often used to wash fish and other seafood.
For many people, this can be a bit off-putting at first. However, if you are concerned about drinking tap water (which you shouldn’t be), there are plenty of ways to filter out the odor and make it safe for consumption:
- Boiling – Boil your kettle or pot until all of the oxygen has evaporated from within and then let it cool before using; this will kill any bacteria present in your container as well as remove any unpleasant odors from being cooked out by boiling them into nothingness!
- Chlorine tablets – These tablets can help kill harmful microorganisms inside containers holding liquids such as cups or glasses used for drinking purposes so that when consumed later on their effects won’t hurt anyone’s stomachs too much! They’ll also keep mold growth down too because no one wants mold growing anywhere near where we live–it smells terrible!”
8. The locals are very friendly and helpful when you need help or directions. They’ll often speak some English as well!
When you’re traveling in Asia, you will find that most locals are very friendly and helpful. They’ll often speak some English as well! If you need help or directions, they’ll be happy to help out. They’ll even lead your group around town if it’s your first time in the area.
If something happens while you’re exploring–a sprained ankle or an allergic reaction–locals will offer their services as well. They might call an ambulance or drive you directly to the nearest hospital or police station (if there is one).
Overall, living in Asia is a great experience. You’ll have access to many different cultures and meet people from all over the world. The weather can be unpredictable but there are always ways to stay warm even in shorts!
