Only focusing on Europe, Asia exclusively. The only Continents that I believe in deep down with real authentic cultural anthropology native roots. Exactly equal preference for each identification scale with tons of value on each side of the continuum spectrum.

Europe

Strengths In Favor Of: Quintessential Classical Baroque Nouveau unique in each country, occasionally more specific details on the buildings, geographic travels close proximity, tons of neighboring alliance with the European Union yet quite exotic aliens simultaneously, language variety, economically wealthy enough usually at least to a Planet Earth standard while maintaining rich ethnic cultural heritage, high variety destination zones scattered absolutely everywhere, Iberian-Romance Latin-Benelux-Celtic-Scandinavia-Germanic-Austro Hungarian-Czechoslovakian Polish-Baltic-Slavic-Balkan

Disadvantages: Usually severe lack of modern skyscrapers, sometimes just not cohesive or massive enough (Example: Slovenia of former Yugoslavia), way too much of a summer reliance(Having to keep everything year round for tourism, especially for beach communities), thousands of Nightclub Discotheque Bars closing down just since one decade ago roughly(Especially in the UK, Netherlands, Romania), Refugee crisis not occurring that far into the past, sudden rising of terrorism attacks(Even when tons of mainland European countries continue to not have any issues)

Asia

Pros: Modern High rises frequently, Pagodas from dynasties centuries background, recently thriving with less stagnancy, preferring their own technological companies(Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars, Laptop Computers), appropriate mega entity sovereignties without dissolving them up too often (Rarely ever less vast than South Korea), relatively year round festive vibrancy(Tons of Europe closes in comparison away from the middle of summer zenith), recent grand openings of night bar venues that are happening quite frequently enough in reflection to the prior occurrence, occasionally superior cultural wealth other than with food ethnic cuisines variety, further ubiquitous coverage of megalopolis cities at a constant rate, their own historic colonial buildings outside on the other types of classification systems.

Cons: Broken interruptions rather than endlessly consistent (Country next door borders, Nationally, Geographically), Not always encompassing a unique iconic design for the architectural marvels of quickly ascending floors on top, at a per capita rate just sometimes a bit extra widespread poverty, coffee stores aren’t usually reaching the glamour found in Europe, less plural collective diversity of easygoing touristic entries, territorially less adjacent to each other available options, less political democracies with these types of freedoms, often rather traditional conservative scale.

Yeah, that lack of skyscrapers is really disturbing and the number one reason I plan on leaving someday.

Unstable? Do you mean unpredictable and/or big swings from one season to another?

Africa does not have real authentic cultural anthropology native roots? It's where humanity began.
