Hi there
I'm from Thailand and I love watching your Videos!!

I would prefer the countryside to the city. It is certainly much better to live there. Nature, birds and flowers. What can be more pleasant!

i really like countryside but i dont guess that i can  adapt with life there. i like night life and countryside cant offer this. anyway i think that countryside is such a conciliatory and relaxing place when you can rest far off the noise of the city...

I prefer to live in a city.The main reason is the chance to work and communicate with a variety of people.It is a feeling of a endless movement.On the other hand in the countryside people doing the same things and they don't have concerns about new ideas or customs.They are so conservative.

I like all kinds of countryside.I like to visit mountains and seaside.When i am in these places i feel calm and more free.I believe that the beauty of nature comes in my soul and gives me energy and a optimistic point of lives view.To answer to the question closely i prefer the seaside.In this landscape i have more options to do.Except of the beauty,i can swim, enjoy,meet new friends and travel more easily to the new destinations.
