He thinks Vietnam and Taiwan look like third world countries just because of the metal-roofed tube houses well, better "third world" tubehouses than houses on stilts

European buildings are properly maintained and is constantly being refurbished.Chinese cities tend to increase the density of the buildings without ever caring about the condition of the old buildings.I said chinese because Tokyo and Seoul like Europe does a good job at maintaining their building

Talking about preservation, for me it would be Paris or Rome. I hope Asian cities does the same as well. These are gems.

London have lot of old historical buildings that are preserved and well maintained but London over the last twenty years are building tall skyscrapers like other European and American cities.
Asian and African cities are building tall skyscrapers which many North American cities in early part of twentieth century and European cities started building tall skyscrapers after post second world war .
Asian countries are emerging economic powers like China India Far East and now building more tall skyscrapers in their fast growing mega cities
