Los Angeles, CA and Bangkok, Thailand - Both are smoggy heavily congested cities with some of the worst traffic in the world. They are also hub of entertainment and influence for their countries. You'll find those who have huge houses with many maids and you'll also find those who are struggling selling their wares/food on the sidewalk. They are also cities where those who do not live there, hope to one day live there as part of their dream.

SF and HK, LA and Singapore, I'll give you that. ATL and Seoul, well anything except for climate. Seoul gets very cold in winter and snows alot. Atlanta has mild winters and only gets about a dusting of snow per year(maybe one inch) and Atlanta.

How about these:

Atlanta,GA and Hiroshima,Japan: These are cities that have seen hard times. Both cities were destroyed in their respective wars(Atlanta:Civil War, Hiroshima:WWII). Both cities rebuilt themselves and became economic powerhouses in their respective regions(Atlanta:GA,most of the South, Hiroshima:Chugoku-Shikoku region)

Flat Rock,MI and Hofu,Japan. Both cities are home to a Mazda factory.
