Our Review

Whether you are looking for an Asian babe or just pure fun friendship with the guys and girls from the East, there are countless online dating platforms for you. One such app is Paktor, operated by a dating company from Singapore.

The Paktor app is fairly new compared to its competitors who have been on the scene for a much longer period, but its young team of developers have built a modern and trendy platform that can go toe to toe with established brands.

Its features are focused on matching and chatting features that promise to find you a match—even a potential real-life date—in just 30 seconds. Aside from text chatting, they also have live chatting features to start "making meaningful connections" with everyone.

Paktor seemed to be a great way to start your Asian dating journey but what's the catch? How much does it cost? Is it going to be worth your time? Find out all about it in this review.

    Paktor could well be one of the top Asian dating apps out there, if only for its lack of membership at the moment. It is fairly young so that is understandable, but international members looking to date singles from the East are better off using other sites if they are after meeting someone within their location. For other Asian dating options, you may browse through similar apps with greater membership results in Asian Dating category.
