Yeah, the Pacific Northwest stretches into BC as well as part of northern California. Why are you comparing the entirety of one region (the British isles) to just part of another region (the PNW)?

Yeah for Pacific Northwest British Columbia Canada has to be included. Maybe even parts of Southern Alaska and Northwestern California.

Overall I would say it is a tie for me for Pacific Northwest and British Isles.

The Pacific Northwest has Seattle, Vancouver, and Portland as well as plenty of great nature scenery places.

The British Isles doesn't have great nature scenery as much as the Pacific Northwest. But it has London. I like Seattle, Vancouver, and Portland and think they are great cities but I think I like London even more and it is greater of a city. The British Isles also has Edinburgh which is a nice city but not as great as London, Seattle, Vancouver, or Portland. So the Pacific Northwest has three great cities while the British Isles has 2. Also while I like England a lot, I do not care or like Ireland, most of Scotland, or Wales.

what is the criterion? you have to be more specific as they are in different parts of the world...for one thing, the Pacific NW is simply just a region whereas the British Isles have so many more regions/ subcultures, etc. within that.

The main things the Pacific Northwest lacks that the British Isles have are history and a city as cool as London. There are no castles or Roman ruins in the northwest.

I have to say alot of the scenery in Britain is a bit overrated. Especially the rolling green paddocks, which are pretty the first time you see them, but they get old real fast. The country gardens and some of the more rugged areas are beautiful, but imo they do not compare to the spectacular Pacific Northwest.

the criteria's basically whatever you want it to be; natural beauty, cities, culture, which one you prefer for whatever reason, etc. it's pretty loose.
