I found Bangkok, Seoul, and Beijing to be pretty chaotic. Singapore and Tokyo were relatively calm.

^Seoul? That's pretty hard to believe. It's really safe, modern, and the metro system is jaw-dropping.
Why do you find Seoul to be chaotic?

Tokyo is really on the opposite of chaotic. Being such a massive city, I couldn't believe how orderly the car flows as if everything is programmed. Definitely put every North American city in shame.

SAiGON, HANOI..and all of VIETNAM.

Nowhere else comes close. Mostly because so few street lights, and everyone drives around on mopeds. The roar of the mopeds begins around 5am every day.

Never been to Hanoi, HCM, Mumbai or Jakarta.

With the asian cities I've only been, Manila has the most chaotic condition. People jaywalk in small streets, no traffic lights on some suburbs (Cavite, Bulacan, Laguna), side-walks are filled with side vendors, bus/jeepney drivers are arrogant and reckless...I can go on and on.

Most of Asia's cities are chaotic except like Japan, HK and Singapore.
South Korea and Taiwan are Second world, slightly chaotic.
Most other asian countries are third world chaotic.

^South Korea is anything but chaotic. Not 100% first world does not make a city or a country chaotic. Seoul is definitely a lot safer and more orderly than Paris, which is in France, a 100% first world country, and Paris is not even a dangerous and messy city to begin with.

One has such a very high standard if one mention there is chaos in Singapore.
