Bergen, NOR because it's closer to European countries in general. I feel like Anchorage is too isolated for my taste.

Warsaw, Poland or Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

Warsaw. Poland is one of my favourite countries to visit and Varsovia is an impressive city. I do love the nature of South Africa, one of the most spectacular in the world, but Port E doesn't appeal much.

Bergamo, Italy vs Georgetown, Malaysia

Tokyo 100%, it's an amazingly large city with something interesting for everyone. Mount Fuji is also not far away. You truly feel like you're in a different civilization.

Seattle WA or Glasgow UK? Similar weather and population

I think I'd go with Seattle. It's not a tropical paradise, but Seattle is moderately warmer and significantly sunnier than Glasgow (wild, isn't it?). I've never been to Glasgow, but only know from friends who are big on Edinburgh who seem to not have a particularly great opinion of Glasgow whereas I personally have been to and very much like Seattle. I also think there's a significantly larger East Asian community, and while I don't personally prize or make an effort to be a part of that community, I do very much like to participate on the eating and groceries end of things.

Two similarly sized coastal metropolitan areas with significant mountainous areas that play third or fourth fiddle to other cities in their small countries:

Tainan, Taiwan or Haifa, Israel

I would easily take Tainan over Haifa for the culture, location, and climate but.. my main concern would be safety in the long run. I think Taiwan will be reclaimed by China probably sooner than later which could be Hong Kong all over again so overall I'd take Haifa because nobody is messing with Israel.

Buenos Aires is undoubtedly one of the greatest cities on Earth. Shame about the nation's schizophrenic economics but BsAs is stil an envigourating, classy metropolis.

Cape Town is naturally beautiful and a decent city but Buenos Aires' urbanity is a few pegs more impressive.

Nairobi vs Mumbai

I’ll go with Nairobi.
Far better climate and relative proximity to amazing wilderness areas.

Tashkent vs La Paz
