Western people say All chinese and Taiwanese or asian look same.

And Most Korean/Vietnamese/Nepalese/Singaporean look same.

And we Asian say, every white people look same / every African look same/ All European white look same/
every latin look same

and like, Every Filipino and indonesian look same

But i guess Each Nationality can recognise their own people outside. Would you?

Yeah...Actually I can usually distinguish between most Asians too. I have a fair eye when it comes to telling apart Koreans, Chinese, Vietnamese...etc.

Its pretty easy for me to distinguish certain Chinese people too. By this, I mean those speaking different dialects like Cantonese; Mandarin + Taiwanese.

u can tell whether someone is Chinese, Korean or Japanese by their hairstyles and clothing

Filipinos look like Indonesians ? I haven`t heard someone say that . Anyway , here in Canada ,
it`s like there are only 4 races . Asians , White , Black and Spanish . And yes , I do recognize other Filipinos .

Yah pretty easy to spot women of my nationality...let just say we all have the same character it's like we are all one family. I'm from morocco. I can spot an Egyptian,Algerian,Moroccan,Tunisian,Arabs in general,Japanese,Koreans.... Europeans...The only people that I can't really Spot are Canadian/Americans...For example : If you put an American and Canadian in the same room,wearing the same clothes, but both are talking I'll be able to tell the difference... If they are not talking, I don't really think it I'll be able to tell the apart ( PS; It only goes for pure Anglophone-Canadian citizens) .

it would depend. sometimes, the person would eventually adapt the culture of whatever country the went to and end up looking just like them. weird hunh???<---though this might be just untrue

well, if they are abroad because they wanna go to a soccer match then they are easily to recognize...

eyes are not reliable coz different types of eyes exist in all Chinese, Korean and Japanese. Accent is probably quite reliable.
