I wasn't sure where to post this topic so if any mod can move it to the appropriate section, thank you.

I guess I just have the typical height for an Asian at 5'9. My parents always tell me that I'm tall for an Asian person, but I can't help but feel that I am short. I didn't remotely reach my goal of 6'2 to 6'4 probably due to poor nutrient growing up in my home country.

So my question is to all you male here, what is your height and do you feel too short, too tall, or just right?

5'9 is like average for an asian male, I'd say. 5'11 ~ 6' is tall, and 6'2 ~ 6'4 is too tall.

i'd say 5'5 for average asian male is about right.

Average Chinese male Height is 5"7.
Average Korean male height is a bit taller perhaps 5"8, 5"9.

Tallest men in the World are German now.

The US Male has dropped from 6" average to 5"10 average now.

well actually, I'm about 5'9 too I think, I've grown in america, so from where I live, I do feel I'm kinda short compared to those black people at my school, they are all above 6' hahaha
but last year, I went to asia for trip, and I do feel tall compared to those azn guys hahaha
so it really depends on where you live I think, but in any ways, as long as you are happy with yourself, height doesnt matters.

i believe the average asian male in china in general are probably around 5'5. i heard koreans are a bit taller. and japanese are the shortest lol.

but here in new york, the typical asian american height is 5'6 to 5'7 . that is the average . 5'9 to 5'10 is very common nowadays too ..



The average height of southern Chinese males is about 5'6"-5'7". Northern Chinese males are taller because of a different diet -- they're about 5'9" to 5'10"!

Most of those who immigrated to America are from southern China. That's why the average Chinese American male height is 5'6"-5'7". Now that Asian Americans are adapting to the American diet of cheese and steak, they're growing taller too(and fatter).

I tend to agree.. It seems now a days, the asians that grow up in North America are much taller. If you go back to China or HK (since I'm chinese), you'll find that they are a lot shorter. Even I'm stand out quite a bit when I go back and I'm only 5'9

5'8 to 5'9 are average for Asian men I think.
But a lot of them are getting taller since a lot of them are taking more dairy products.
But that also leads a large gain in weight...

6'2 here, feel kinda too tall when i'm around short asian girls ofc, but then again there are tall asian girls as well, its a good thing to be tall, 80% (according to my experience) chance of looking down at people, which is good, you dont want to look up to a girl ;-)

I think for average asian guy 5"7-5"10. I find taller than it too tall, looks kind of odd, with a small head and long legs and arms.

Height is changing for Asian males. I think it has to do with the change in diet now days compared with the food staples older generations were use too. I've noticed different heights with various Asian backgrounds. Given the different Asian backgrounds I'd say the variation would be between 5'7 to 5'10. This is without pin pointing a certain Asian group.

Avg for Chinese male is about 5'5-5'7, tall would be 5'8-5'10. I rarely see any that are taller than that.

I'm 18 and 6'1. Honestly, 6'1 in my opinion is a great height for men. Not too tall, not too short....that's in America of course. Among my friends, I feel like a giant :/

6'4 is a LITTLE too tall though lol.
