Looking for Asia registrar

I'm trying to help a client coordinate and update domains they've registered throughout the world.  While we'd like to consolidate them under one global registar, it appears that some of the European and Asian domains cannot be transferred from local control.

We've obviously got the US based domains handled, and I think we've found someone for UK/UE domains.  Our challenge now is Asia.  Can anyone recommend a reputable registrar for Asia based domains.  Web searches are pointless since it's so hard to differentiate.  Plus I'd prefer one that can effectively support English speaking clients.  Various domain extensions my client already owns includes:  .cn, .sg, .tw, .vn, .hk, .ae & .asia

Any suggestions from those with experience in this?

Usually I check with godaddy first.  If they don't offer the domain extension then Instra Corp. is the way to go. http://www.instra.com/

They are based out of Australia so they do speak English!  I've used them for a couple domains without any issues.  I even talked to their support people a couple times and they were helpful.  They have a huge selection of extensions so hopefully they'll have the one you need.

They do have a few USA numbers too and they're all listed online.  I can't remember which number I dialed when I spoke with them. http://www.instra.com/en/about-us/contact-us
