Port Louis, Port of Spain doesn't seem like a safe place to live.

Edinburgh, UK! I'm interested in the other, too, but Edinburgh always seemed like it'd be a lot of fun especially with all the festivals it seems to have.

Two commercial centers of the two most populous countries on this planet:

Mumbai, India or Shanghai, China

Shanghai. As much as I loathe the idea of living in the PRC, we really do love Shanghai a lot (for visiting) and have relatively little interest in India.

Kuala Lumpur v Bogota

Kuala Lumpur. Better food, interesting mix of cultures and a better climate.

Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia vs. Astana, Kazakhstan

Astana, or should I use the up-to-date name: Nur Sultan?



It likely has better infrastructure plus I dig Kazakh as a language a li'll better than Mongolian. Qpop is ok too.



Tokyo vs Moscow?

I'd hate to live in either, but Saudi Arabia would be safer for me, so I'd choose there.

St. John's, Antigua & Barbuda vs. Nassau, Bahamas?

Nassau as it is closer to North America.

Rio Grande, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina vs. Akureyri, Iceland

Both horribly isolated. Both have airports that connect out to their country's capital, which can then be used to launch out of the country. Would marginally prefer Rio Grande's climate owing to it being just a bit warmer and less darkness in their "winter" season than Akureyri, but would ultimately give the nod to Akureyri for closer proximity to North America and Europe.

Charlotte Amolie, USVI, vs. Kona, Island of Hawaii

Kona, HI because it's less prone to tropical storms and on a larger island with better scenery.

Kathmandu, Nepal vs. Cusco, Peru
