Perth is popular with South Africans as well.

Adelaide, SA vs. Auckland, NZ
Auckland, Even though I prefer Adelaide's hotter climate and proximity to the rest of Australia it's really more of a big town that's kind of boring. Auckland is more of a prime metropolis close to a lot more outdoor activities and geographic wonders.


Belfast, N. Ireland vs. Belgrade, Serbia

Serbia, neighbors of my country I don't like them too much since they're snobby and not that bright but at least you can solve everything there with rakia (and onion lol!). The islanders north of europe have too much of a superiority complex over the continent for my liking.



Eilat, Israel vs Barcelona, Spain?

ima go w/ Eilat bc frankly I like Israeli culture and people and know pretty much nothing about Spain. plus i'm used to Israeli-type climate. (I've lived in Mediterranean, sub-tropics and desert)

Seattle - warmer year round, prettier, wide access to nature, much more of a skyline and probably more to do in the city. That said, Stockholm is a pretty nice place to be and consistently beats out Seattle in those livability metrics.

Going with livability ratings, perennial top 10s:

Copenhagen, Denmark or Vienna, Austria?

Vienna, more historic and cultural, warmer, and much cheaper cost of living. Not to say that Copenhagen isn't a great place but I think Vienna does everything it does but a little bit better.


Lisbon, Portugal vs Prague, Czech Republic

Lisbon also pretty much because of the weather. I have never been to Lisbon and actually both my wife and I think we'd enjoy living in Prague, but I am fairly confident that we'd also like Lisbon a lot and if that's the case, I'm sure the better weather would easily tip the scales for my wife.

Sorry I'm stretching/breaking the rules here, but in honor of my buddy who has recently made it to all 6 Disney theme park regions:

Los Angeles vs Orlando vs Tokyo vs Shanghai vs Hong Kong vs Paris

In short depth I would say:

LA - No because high taxes, too liberal, no culture, a lot of superficial people, and Hollyweirds

Orlando - No Too much humidity, crime, no culture, and W-trash

Shanghai - Chinese communist country and pollution probably makes this the least attractive choice

Hong Kong - Maybe if it wasn't for current events that are going on. Really too bad a great city ruined.

Paris - I always thought was a little overrated. Not the friendliest and lately taken over by immigration issues. Other parts of France are much nicer.

Tokyo - Would be my pick. I loved it there when I visited, beautiful city very safe, very clean and beyond interesting. A model city that other cities should follow even as the largest city in the world. The only downside is the cost of living and the long work hours.


Chiang Mai, Thailand vs. Cartagena, Colombia

Manila - It's very close. They are both very similar cities.. and they are both kind of bad. Bad as in bad traffic, high crime/slums, Hot and humid, etc. I would choose Manila because it's more English friendly and easier to make friends with the locals and I would have take that over Jakarta's superior cuisine and cultural heritage


Hanoi, Vietnam vs. Ho Chi Minh (Saigon), Vietnam
