Fukuoka, Japan vs Busan, S. Korea?
Fukuoka. I think the scenery would be better as it has more mountains nearby.

Chernivtsi, Ukraine vs. Lethbridge, AB, Canada

Steel Town V Steel City: Pittsburgh V Sheffield.
Sheffield any day. One of the friendliest cities in England. Great parks and hinterland and of manageable size.
Good transport links to Manchester and York among others. Cheap and good ale. Negatives is cold in winter , they voted Brexit and the accent can take a bit of getting used to, far from the beach. But all in all probably the city I would prefer to live if decided to live again in England. (Newcastle second)
No idea about Pittsburgh from experience but don't feel an attraction in what know about it.

Chernivtsi simply for its famed architecture and European location.

Keeping with the Canadian theme White Horse or Russian Far East Vladivostok

Whitehorse for sure... I have been there and it's a nice little town with nice scenery nearby. No Russian city really appeals to me to live.

Alice Springs, NT, Australia vs. Yellowknife, NT, Canada

And, I could still travel to the East Coast of Australia more easily (relatively) than I could travel from Yellowknife to Vancouver or eastern Canada.

Birmingham, AL, USA vs. Birmingham, England, UK?
I will go with England. Better architecture and closer to other more interesting cities like London.

Hanoi, Vietnam vs. Havana, Cuba

Very difficult to pick. Not been to Havana but will pick that for the Latino imagined rhythm and soul and old American cars.

Albany West Australia (oldest settlement out West, one of worlds most attractive natural harbours, big tourist town) vs Albany in New York State.

Albany NY of course. Really no comparison on this one unless someone is seeking to live in one of the most isolated places on Earth. Albany NY, is a great combination of glorious nature, very nice city, history, proximity to all that the North East has to offer. Not a fair fight this one.

Bern V Bonn.

Bern... it's closer to the Alps and Switzerland has higher wages.

Apia, Samoa vs. Nuku'alofa, Tonga

Elenite because Bulgaria is part of the EU and doesn't have a dictator.

Karachi, Pakistan vs. Dar es Salaam, Tanzania
