Been to Bangkok many times and Cartagena once. It would be the latter for me. Firstly Colombia is very under rated as a country, and as for Cartagena, came across a few galleries with very original art work. Would love to purchase more.
Liked the vibe of Cartagena . Just a place worthy of return. Living of course is another question. While I wouldn't live in Bangkok, there are plenty of areas in Thailand, where I could quite easily. I don't know enough about Cartagena or Colombia, for that matter to state it would be a place to live. Short term, why not.

Sofia vs Casablanca

Sofia, Bulgaria - as much as I hate this city compared to the sea at least you don't get killed for being gay, in Morocco they unironically imprison lgbt people for at least several months +fine (just googled...):


Prague, Czechia vs Nairobi, Kenya?

I'm currently in Prague and it's quite a nice city, never been to Nairobi, but I'd rather stay in Europe. So Prague.

Montevideo Uruguay vs Porto Alegre, Brazil

Montevideo because I think Uruguay is more stable than Brazil economically.

Mumbai, India vs. Caracas, Venezuela

Mumbai, India. It's a much larger city and seems more exciting in a lot of ways. Caracas seems like a featherweight in comparison.

Baku, Azerbaijan vs Salt Lake City, United States

Baku, solely based on pure coin tossing kinda guess...can't see a reason to pick any of them.

Tokyo, I've been to both and they are very similar but Tokyo does everything a little better and definitely more colorful. Also I thought that the people in South Korea seemed a bit racist towards outsiders and didn't seem all too friendly whereas the Japanese mostly kept to themselves in a shy kind of way.


Lima, Peru vs. Santiago, Chile

Lima, Peru vs. Santiago, Chile
I'll go with Lima. I like hearing/ speaking with Peruvians a lot more than Chileans, Chilean Spanish is weird. Lima is also, according to some competitor website, seems quite a bit cheaper than Santiago. It's also a bit less isolated, being more northern.

Muscat Oman vs Tunis, Tunisia

Lisbon due to safety reasons alone. I'd love to visit South Africa, but I am troubled by some of the violence statistics I read about.

Sydney, Australia or Auckland, New Zealand?
