Mexico City is a good choice, actually. It seems a lot denser/more urban though.

I agree shirley. No one who's been to both (as I have) can seriously think the two are that similar.

There is an american which visited São Paulo posting a video on YouTube, he said that the city looks more or less as if NYC throwed up on Los Angeles. A lot of high rises like NYC and the sprawl of LA.

Sydney's inner city is situated on and divided by a harbour, while LA's downtown is almost central rather than coastal, with suburbs that spring around and outwards. LA has been modernised, while Sydney's downtown has retained a lot of its European history.
Sydney is very hilly to the north and southeast. There's a region called North Hills.

And to the west there's the Blue Mountains.

Los Angeles has more in common with Rio de Janeiro than Sao Paulo.

Much more, but i believe the correct comparison is Rio and Miami.
Lima, Perú with Santiago, Chile are the best option in Latin America.

I'd say there's a lot of truth to it. LA is pretty diverse, so it depends where. Phoenix is pretty similar to places in eastern metro LA, Riverside, San Bernardino etc.
