All seem like reasonable matches so far in at least a couple of criteria. I am so surprised nobody said Geneva. It seems to match in quite a few criteria as well now that I think about it...

The lack of an ocean is probably too big of a difference to make them comparable.

Couldn't the same be said of Auckland, Copenhagen and Stockholm with regard to mountains? - who seriously thinks that Copenhagen is just Vancouver without hills?

If these cities are all similar to Vancouver, then it should follow that they're similar to each other - does that make Auckland and Stockholm similar to each other?

Demographics drive "feeling" and "vibe"

I'd say Sydney, despite the weather difference & size.
Harbor, laid-back coastal feeling, Asians/ similar multicultural vibe.

In terms of vibe and feel I'd say Sydney as well. Though obviously Sydney is quite a bit larger and different in many other significant ways.

In my opinion lack of close by mountains is not as a disqualifying as a lack of an ocean

I lived in Sydney, in my opinion the vibe is quite different...I found more similarity in "feel" with Auckland.

I guess mountains aren't really part of the Vancouver vibe.

I certainly think they are part of the identity of the city. Vancouver is partly defined by its geography among other things. That's why despite Geneva not being on an ocean, I think it has a lot of similarities. It is on a large lake. The ocean by Vancouver while salt water, is not what most people think about when they think about ocean because it doesn't have surfing waves.

In my opinion, I separate the "vibe" of a city from its geographical location.
