The only people I can't really tell is vietnamese. They look too much like southern chinese people. The rest all look distinct.

Then again... people always think I'm Korean because I have the Flat face and beady slits called eyes....

but I'm chinese =]... My last name doesn't help either -_- Its Song... both korean and Chinese last name...sigh...

I just can (between Japanese, Korean, and East coast Chinese that is) I've got so used to living with them it's second nature.

That is a good question. Usually the shape of the eyes, nose, and skin colour is the main give away. And sometimes height... but that's not a guarantee.

Thais tend to have darker skin as far as physical appearence goes. Other than that I dont thinks its possible. But personally I can tell ALOT of the time based on the last name 1. Lee - Chinese 2. Kim - Korean 3. Japanese - Is Fuggin easy and ur retarded if you cant tell a japanese last name and oh 4. Nguyen - or any of thos Ng- names are usually Vietnamese although sometimes chinese like Ngo. Oh what else........................ oh written languages like on shows and stuff you can tell the difference by the OP credits. And ummmmmmm sometimes the accent can give them away.

Nope!!! Thought I could until i took a quiz. But most of the time in person, I get it rite, but i don't go around callin everyone I c chinese. when I see an Asian, the first thing that pops in my head is,"I wonder if they're Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Filipino, Cambodian, etc.

Usually I can see inherited features in the face of Asian women. I can typically figure out if she’s from Japan, China, or Korea just by looking at her face. However, the men I cannot do that for. It’s not that they look alike so much is it is that I just don’t know the features that are passed down in that race.

umm....i would just know...and don't ask me how...but most of the time i can tell the difference! :P
yeh...i guess it's the eyes and skin colour

but for those people who say that all asians look alike- they're just not paying any attention! because....NOT all asians look alike!

I don't think the skin color helps cuz my sis is chinese but her skin is dark/brown color. People just don't see her as chinese. I think tht i might be able to tell is wht but not a few. It's always fun to find out, and sometimes you're completely wrong. I don't think this is helping much.
