It was a hard comparison. I don't think anyone's list can have any wrong answers because we're all wrong to begin with and America is clearly outsized and outdone. We must remember that its hard to compare a country with only 2 megacities to a much larger continent with 16 megacities. Their cities are denser, larger, and most often than not mean more to their countries than ours do here.

Only three comparisons that can even stack up are NYC and Tokyo and LA and Mumbai and Chicago and Singapore.

Petropavlovsk-Kamchatskyy - geographically in Asia, politically in Europe; Russia as a whole is still considered a European country

Sanya has a beautiful beach scene and a city to match, and that would be equivalent to Honolulu. it's been called China's Hawaii.

I've always thought HCMC as chaotic while Hanoi is the classier city.

Manila is too polluted and messy to be compared with Miami. Cebu would be a better choice, with better and cleaner beaches and a rich colonial history. Population wise, they are more or less on the same level.

Both HCMC and Hanoi are chaotic - I mean they're in Vietnam, after all - but I actually feel HCMC is the more orderly of the two, it has wide boulevards, and has a more spacious, modern feel to it. Hanoi feels old, gritty and cramped.
