Is it in the mountainous country of Japan? The beautiful country of China? The fertile country of South Korea?

Please discuss and explain. Also, if you can, what are the best cities (it doesn't necessarily have to be out of those I listed) for...

Architecture
Health (pollution? heart attack rates? stress?)
Traffic
Friendliness
Living quarters/real estate
Nightlife
History
Music/Opera
Parks
Museums
Public Transportation
Beauty
Happiness (stress? divorce? conflict?)
Accessibility
Sports
Downtown
Shopping
Food/Cuisine (for the average American)

I've been thinking about visiting a few places in Asia so any ideas?

You left out Ulan Ude, Buryat Republic (Russia). But since it wasn't on there, I voted for Taipei.

As far as beauty, happiness, health, cuisine, sports, history, friendliness, architecture, history, culture, Thimphu, Bhutan, would be tops. Might be lacking in nightlife, that's all.

Air is East, Southeast, South Asia very dirty.
Earthquakes, typhoons, tsunamis terrible.
A best city is in West & Central.

Tehran
