The biggest shopping mall in Vietnam is in Hanoi as the Japanese constructed it in order to push a lot of their products within the country. Great facility!

I think Japanese businessmen used to be perceived as the imperialistic types who would go to different Asian countries & treat their women like crap. Times seem to be changing as they are now more respected.

Japanese are huge investors everywhere in southeast asia. Even in Manila there's a lot of public works stamped with joint Japanese/Filipino construction. In Thailand they are credited with building the subway system there as well as lots of other public works. Japanese investment is actually very undervalued and underestimated. They have done a lot of positive shit in SEA since WW2..

Speaking of Koreans in Vietnam. The entire district 7 is little Korea as you well know. You are right about Vietnamese talking shit about Koreans though. The girl I was seeing in HCMC would joke about Koreans crowding into D7 (she lived there) all the time. The irony is that the commercial center and community behind D7 was originally founded by a rich Taiwanese dude.

Koreans unlike the current day Japanese tend to overstay their welcome though. Japanese are very low key for the most part for obvious reasons. A lot of Filipinos don't really like Koreans and consider them rude and arrogant especially in places like Boracay. They tolerate K's because of the tourist dollars and investment but don't really like them as much as people think.
