I live in Bangkok and generally like it here, but sometimes I feel this city can be a little too much. The things I dislike about Bangkok is the crazy traffic, the polution and not to forget, Western inspired shopping centers being built everywhere. I know Vientiane has less of all the things I just mentioned, which is just great. But what I don't like about Vientiane is that I can't get all the comfort that I'm used to as a Westerner. So as you can tell, I'm undecided on the best city to live in, and want to ask you: is it Bangkok or Vientiane?
