Did you know that Edmonton and Harbin are sister cities before you posted this? When I was a kid in Edmonton we used to eat at the Harbin Chinese restaurant which in the winter seemed very appropriate considering Harbin is famous for a winter ice festival and Edmonton is famous for being cold as hell.

But Edmonton is in Canada, not USA. The Twin Cities has a winter ice festival too.

I want to compare Miami with Singapore.

Both are similar climatically, although Singapore is a bit rainier and doesn't have a colder season.
Both are coastal, tropical cities with many skyscrapers.
Both are important regional seaports.
Both serve as places were cultures from nearby areas all mix into one. Miami with Latin American countries and Singapore with Southeast and East Asia.

Chicago & Osaka
Both regarded as the "second city".
Both cities are meccas of food, arts, music and sports.
A major transportation hub.
Both citizens have a laid back quality compare to their "first city" equivalents (NYC & Tokyo).
Both are strategically neighbored by other cities.

New York City-Hong Kong/Shanghai/Tokyo: Lots of very high density, plenty of skyscrapers for 3 out of 4 of them, although Tokyo has very high density it has many less skyscrapers than the other 3. Similar big city economies. Some similar cosmopolitan diversity, although not all of that is the same.

Chicago-Taipei/Seoul/Osaka/Shanghai: Same as the ones above but expressed a bit differently.

Singapore-Honolulu: Singapore is much more similar to Honolulu than Miami. Both have plenty of wealthy/middle class people, low amount of poverty, low crime rate, similar type of cosmopolitan diversity, connected but also detached from other places, both on islands. Miami is much more different than Singapore compared to Honolulu.

Denver-Sapporo: Cold snowy winters. Nearby mountains. Has some urban amenities and culture, but not nearly as much as the other places above but they are much less crowded and more laid back.


I wonder what Asian cities are the closest match to Seattle, San Francisco, Portland, Los Angeles, Houston, Minneapolis, Boston, and Philadelphia?
