having been to Bangkok I find it so similar to Chicago in just the vibe, atmosphere, layout, and how it feels...
Not so much for what it produces.

Please explain in detail.

I have some more.

Honolulu, HI - Colombo, Sri Lanka. Both cities are on relatively big islands with tropical climates.

Oakland, CA - Beirut, Lebanon. Both cities have similar climates and have their own unique vibe. Both have known hard times.

Both are also considered the "crime capitals" for their respective nations strangely enough, with Osaka not being nearly as dangerous as any American city.

You can't match an American city with Asian cities. Perhaps Honolulu being the sole exception, sharing similarities with tropical island cities in Southeast Asia.

But there is no comparison to the large bustling cities of China and Japan. The two continents' cities are completely different. New York, for example, does not look nor feel like Tokyo.

Atlanta, GA - Chengdu,China(mild, humid climates, both cities are located in hilly regions, both cities are landlocked.)[/quto

this one is not that accurate. Chengdu locates on Chengdu plaine, so it is not really hilly, i would say Chongqing is a better match of Atlanta, GA.
