I've actually strongly considered living in both of these cities, I'm going to have to say Malaga. I like the size and attitude of the city of Sevilla itself slightly more than Málaga, but the summer heat, and lack of coast in Sevilla make Málaga the winner here.

Vaduz, Liechtenstein or Luxembourg City, Luxembourg?

Luxembourg City. It is bigger, so more things to do. Liechtenstein do have the location going for it, but i was not a fan of Vaduz. People were strange.

Paris or Toronto

Paris - People are a pain in the arse (Not all but many) but the culture, food and cafe scene is amazing. Plus you have the art scene as well as a pathway to traveling in Europe.

Toronto is too cold, and well, it's in Canada. Nice but boring.



Milan or Valencia ?

That’s what I think of Toronto. It’s nice but omg what a boring and sterile city.

I would rather live in Milan. I wouldn’t be able to cope with the layout of Venecia and the mass tourism. I haven’t been but I prefer a proper city, and Milan is the financial heart of Italy and an important hub in Europe.

Bangkok or Bogota ?

Bangkok, I lived there for a year and I would love to go back. Thailand is awesome! I visited Medellin (which is probably better than Bogota) pretty woman but overall has a lot less going for it as far as things to do.


Ho Chi Minh vs. Kuala Lumpur

Ho Chi Minh vs. Kuala Lumpur
I think I'd go with Kuala Lumpur. Some of the architecture of Ho Chi Minh looks fantastic, but the city just seems really chaotic to me, and I'm wary of how authoritarian its government is. If this was to visit, then Ho Chi Minh, but since this is to live, then Kuala Lumpur is probably a lot easier as it's one of the most developed cities in Southeast Asia and it's very multicultural with a large immigrant population.

Saint-Denis, Réunion versus Naha, Okinawa

Kuala Lumpur hands down!!! cleaner, better transit, safer, just feels a more developed city. Vietnam is beautiful but i would still pick KL

Sydney or Nice, France?

Sydney. I lived there for 3 months and generally enjoyed myself. The people were nice, weather was good, and I found enough good food to eat.

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea or Apia, Samoa?

Naha easily - Closer to civilization (lol) but also very clean and safe as well whereas Reunion is too remote of a location to be considered a place to live.

Apia, from what I understand is a really more of a town than a city but the locals are said to be really friendly whereas Port Moresby is well known for high crime and corruption.


Bridgetown, Barbados vs. Sapporo, Japan

Sapporo. My heart is torn because Bridgetown has a much better climate. Sapporo is simply too prone to extreme weather (like 240 inches of snow per year). Bridgetown has no natural disasters--Barbados is very rarely affected by hurricanes. But Sapporo has better infrastructure, healthcare, and economy (though not great, either).

Tel Aviv vs. Dubai
