Best place in Asia for home base (outside of SE Asia)
I've already spent a lot of time in Thailand and surrounding areas, so looking to venture out to Japan, South Korea, China, etc. Basically I need to have an office and be stationary in 1 place for a few months and then i'll take a week or so each month to travel to neighboring countries.

If money is not a major consideration, what's the best place for a "Thailand / Philipines" type of experience in terms of females, interesting and diverse culture (I assume Japan for that, but could be wrong), and friendliness to foreigners.

I'm 37 (pass for 27 easily) white, 5'10, and in very good shape. Don't speak any Asian languages. Solid night game, below average day game, clean up on the dating apps lol.

I mean i've only been to Taipei and can't say I was a huge fan. It's almost too modern for my liking, doesn't have that much crazy Asian feel. I pulled good #s there but nothing over a mid 7 really, in Philipines and Thailand I was doing 8 and 9s regularly.

Assuming money is not a major concern and neither is moderate travel time, what would you suggest?

Phnom Penh or Siem Reap are pretty good places to settle, and the VISA is easy.
Or Saigon, if you're American you can get a 1 year VISA.

Saigon has good air links at reasonable prices, and you can get the bus to Phnom Penh (5hrs) for $10.

Try Vietnam perhaps. I don't know much about it personally, but I think that's exactly what you are looking for. HCMC and Hanoi both seem like good bets to me. Da Nang if you like the beach and tourist girls especially from Korea and to a lesser extent, China.

As of right now, Cambodia is probably too third world for a comfortable life. However, this is changing as we speak: Cambodia is for all intents and purposes a Chinese vassal state, which means lots of Chinese investment has poured into Cambodia. For example, lots of Chinese construction companies are building luxury condos in Phnom Penh.

I would recommend visiting both Vietnam and Cambodia before deciding where to move.

It depends what you are looking for. Are you looking for a couple of years of fun, don't care about money, or you don't mind working several high-paying part time jobs at once, including weekends--then Japan. Korea ESL money isn't what it used to be, but you can save more if they pay for your apartment. Korea is no where near as sexy and hot as Japan, but with some game, you'll do fine.
For either country, if you want an easy job with reasonable money--EPIC (Korea) or JET (Japan) is your best bet. From my understanding, Taiwan is in between Japan and Korea for these factors.

You are under 45 y/o, so there is no excuse to go to SE Asia. I say this as someone who knows that the E. Asian women are sweeter, cleaner (perfect smell and grooming), interesting culture, with its own surreality (yes, with a modern quality.) The women are also more hot and more physically developed because of the higher standard of living, which also precludes gold diggers.
I have a buddy I met in Korea who went to Taiwan for the chicks because they are nicer; however, now he goes to SE Asia exclusively. I think it's a case of just being over the fact of being surrounded by unlimited hot, available women who need a little romancing. It's absurd, like Charlie Sheen seeing hookers because he can't return a phone call to a hot, normal Californian girl.

I've done all of Europe and just don't enjoy South America as much outside of Colombia and Brazil. Women aside, for a trip this long I need some real unique culture, which Asia is best at.
