I have observed that they seem to be tall. Here generally European ethnic people who come as tourists are mostly about 5'9 especially women.
Lol it's intimidating at times because i am 5'8 guy and it's awkward when tall girls generally pass by while they stare.
So , are tall girls quite common in America and Europe?

I can only speak for Europe because I'm European. Generally, European girls (and guys) are pretty tall compared to people in other parts of the world, particularly Asia. However, there's also a difference whether you come from the south or the north. Generally, mediterranean people tend to be rather short (especially Italians and Greeks) and the more north you go, the taller they get. In Germany and Scandinavia, everyone's quite tall and the Netherlands is a special case. Dutch people are like... crazily tall. Maybe there's some natural selection happening there. All the Dutch guys I've met so far were around 1,90m-1,95m (around 6'4'' to 6'5''). I am from Switzerland (so central Europe) and I would say girls here have an average height. Most girls in my country are around 1,75m (5'7''-5'8''). So you see, for us this is not very special, it's just average. Most guys are between 1,77m-1,87m I would say (5'9''-6'3''). But there are also exceptions. I had a girl in high school in the grade below me and she was actually taller than I am. I'm 1,84m (around 6'2'') and she was an incredible 4 cm taller than me. Together with high heels, she was around 1,92 or so (6'4'') and that was a rather... strange feeling ;-).
But I have to say that in general, being tall is quite fun. I was in Japan with my best friend last year and we're both kinda big guys (especially him). We're tall and he is also kind of chubby and muscular. So when we were standing in the crowded subway in Tokyo, it was much easier for us to claim our space. In fact, we could see over all the heads of the Japanese people ;-). The only thing that was a little scary was that we constantly had to watch out not to accidentally squash one of those cute, tiny Japanese girls ;-).1
