Welcome to Turning East

Are you contemplating a move to Asia? Do you already live here? Are you an armchair traveler looking to discover this fascinating part of the world? Are your friends, family or coworkers from Asian cultures? Are you interested in the phenomenon of intercultural communication and experience?

Posts on this website will bring you into the reality of living, working or traveling here–particularly China, Korea, Japan and the Philippines–as the storytellers delve into the details of their personal experience: on-the-job triumphs or embarrassments, health care problems, human rights demonstrations, lifestyles and everyday life, relationships, spirituality, music, books, travel. Please come right in, experience and enjoy!
