Vancouver - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Vladivostok - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Which city on each side of the Pacific would you choose?
I think I know what the cold lovers will choose.. but curious to see what the heat lovers will choose...

I choose my hometown... much milder winters and drier summers which I like

I knew the answer to this before I clicked the thread.. Vladivostok. Vancouver looks boring.

Vancouver.

Vladivostok's has a better sunshine distribution through the year though the annual mean temperature is too low for my liking, and the summers are not warm enough to make up for it.

Vancouver

Fantastic dry summers, I've visited Vancouver 3 times, each tiime in summer,
time the weather was awesome, sunny with low humidity and just
the right temps (highs 22-24c range)

And much milder winters, you can grow cold hardy palms

Vancouver - much milder winters. Vladivostok is just ridiculously cold relative to its latitude (same as Nice, France). And summers are only slightly warmer than in Vancouver. Also it appears that the first half of summers is very foggy and drizzly, and things really don't warm up until August.

Another benefit of Vancouver is that within two hours by car you can get to places that have real seasons.

Ugh both climates have features I dislike. As much as I love four proper seasons I am going to have to to with Vancouver on this one. There is no way I would be able to put up with Vladivolstok's wet humid summers ick! I'm already used to a Vancouver type climate anyway.

I vote that when we create threads like these, we actually stick to the places in question. Discussing the close proximity to other climates nearby kind of defeats the object, don't you think?

Vancouver for the cloudier winters and higher precipitation.

Generally agreed but I'm not sure I want to completely ignore the existence of micro-climates which, you have to admit, would make the place more appealing if you were to imagine yourself actually living there.
