NYC doesn't belong in this category imo, pretty amazing place to live and even if you don't like Manhattan's constant rush hour, the outerboroughs are much quieter

Ehh after being there for four years it is a bit different. A lot of people would just like it to visit. North Jersey is beautiful though

I lived there for 2 years and loved it. I don't think the culture is aggressive at all. As a matter of fact I think it is the complete opposite and quite docile. I never had a hostile encounter with random strangers like I have had some places. Old ladies were falling over themselves to get up and give me their Metro seats when I broke my ankle.

The language is difficult to become fluent in but you can learn enough to navigate reasonably well in a couple months. Cyrillic is very easy to pick up. Many people speak English, especially younger generations.

My entry would be Bangkok. I would get tired of the "farang" treatment that was so obvious when I visited for a couple weeks. I got the feeling that I was just a big dollar sign walking around many parts of town and it's so sleazy and/or touristy in some spots. Dealing with drunk tourists and sex tourists on a daily basis would also destroy what little faith I have left in humanity.

I may be able to handle Chiang Mai or Koh Samui but Bangkok is too much.
