24 Funny Illustrations That Show The Cultural Differences Between The East And The West.

Cultural differences between the East and the West are like two different flavors of ice cream. In the East, like countries in Asia, people often value harmony and collectivism. They care a lot about their families and tend to be more reserved in expressing their feelings. On the other hand, in the West, such as Europe and North America, individualism is cherished, and people often express themselves openly. They also have a strong focus on personal achievements and independence. So, while both sides enjoy ice cream, they prefer different flavors and toppings, just like how they value different things in their cultures. These differences are often used as the subject of amazing artworks. We have previously published a collection of comics that highlights these differences [here].
