Big 7 Travel has released it’s “Top 50 Sexiest Accents” and seven Asian accents made the list. The readers of Big 7 Travel voted from thousands of accents and the sexiest Asian accent is Filipino. However, it came in 21st place overall with the Kiwi accent taking the top prize. The list was made with the help of Big 7 Travel readers who voted for their sexiest accents. Big 7 Travel is a website that focuses on food and travel.
Big 7 Travel describes the Filipino accent as, “Gentle and soft, the accents you’ll hear when in the Philippines are simply lovely.”
The Vietnamese accent came in as the second sexiest Asian accent but 25th overall. “Vietnamese is a tonal language, so the accent goes up and down,” Big Travel 7 wrote.
The Indian accent came in as the third sexiest Asian accent but 26th overall. Big Travel 7 wrote, “With an attractive accent tilt, Indian is fast and easy on the ears.”
The next Asian accent to make the list is Japanese, which came in 42nd overall. “Gentle and easy listening, Japanese scored respectably.”
Next up was the Chinese accent which came in 43rd place. “Standard Chinese is full of varied tones and quite soft.”
The Pakistani accent came in as the 6th sexiest Asian accent and came in 47th overall. “Often mistaken for Indian, the Pakistani accent wasn’t hugely popular in the poll.”
And finally, Thai came in as the 7th sexiest Asian accent with a 48th place ranking. “The Thai language is hugely tonal, but not hugely sexy, according to the Big 7 Travel readers.”
Let’s take a listen to what the Filipino accent sounds like.
Although the Filipino accent is the sexiest in Asia, it did not crack the top ten. The sexiest accent voted by the viewers was Kiwi. It is described as “To a novice ear, the New Zealand accent might sound like the Australian accent, but Big 7 Travel readers disagree. The ‘Newzild’ dialect is outrageously charming.”
