Asian People Meet is a dating site for Asians. There is no fee to register or browse through profiles. I received a decent amount of matches while doing a local search.
The site offers manny communication features such as instant messaging, chat rooms and forums, however you will have to upgrade to a paid membership in order to be able to access the features.
Overall AsianPeopleMeet.com is a nice site where you can check it out for free if you're not up for paying for memberships yet.
