As the epidemic is lifted, more and more people are traveling abroad, and Japan and South Korea are both popular countries for Taiwanese. One netizen said that Taiwanese boys are often accused of not having an international outlook. From observation, 90% of the time when they go abroad, they go to Japan. “They seem to have no interest in other countries.” Many experienced people pointed out that real men will go to “Vietnam and Thailand.”
A netizen posted an article on PTT and pointed out that Taiwanese boys are often accused of not having an international outlook. On the other hand, girls travel around the world at a young age and feel how knowledgeable they are. But after observation, it’s not that boys don’t go abroad. I just asked 10 boys, and 9 of them answered Japan, which means that 90% of them go to Japan. But when girls go abroad, they may go to Japan, South Korea, Thailand, France, the United States, etc. In Australia, it may basically be different every time. I’m curious, “Are Taiwanese men not interested in countries other than Japan?”
Many experienced drivers pointed out, “Real men go to Vietnam”, “I have never been to Japan”, “Of course I go to Vietnam or Thailand to take a bath”, “I will go to Vietnam in the future”, “Don’t talk nonsense, we still have I like to go to Vietnam and Thailand” and “I won’t tell you the little secret places I’ve been to.”
But some people said, “Anyway, it’s true for me, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it. It’s not for girls’ reasons to see the world, it’s just because I like Japanese food and toys.” Others don’t understand the original po’s thoughts. , “International outlook and where to go abroad are completely different things”, “Going abroad does not mean having a world view…”, “It’s ridiculous that you have an international outlook when you go to a bunch of countries? The result is just shopping and taking beautiful photos online.”
According to statistics from the Tourism Bureau of the Ministry of Transportation and Communications from January to September this year (2023), there are about 8.42 million Chinese people going abroad this year, of which the largest group is those aged 40-49. The first country is Japan, followed by China, South Korea, Vietnam, and Thailand, among which Japan has about 3 million visitors, is far ahead of the second place China with 1 million visitors.
