All countries moved to the NEW website www.teoalida.com on 25-27 octomber
I love exploring the world via Google Earth, Street View and websites so I made this page to review many countries and compare them, with much attention to living conditions, housing and apartment buildings, also infrastructure and public transport.
The page reached 100 KB in length, as 24 May 2012 I decided to split it page in individual for each region, do you like the idea?
Countries studied so far:
Europe: Finland, Norway, Sweden, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, Russia, Romania, Turkey, etc
America: USA, Mexico, but mostly I studied Brazil, since 2011
Singapore (most extensive studying, since 2008)
Hong Kong & Macao (extensive studying, since 2011)
South Korea (currently under extensive studying, as 2012)
India (newly added 2012)
Philippines (newly added 2012)
... which country should be added?
Curious which country have the biggest houses in the world?
After extensive studies I realized that the houses and apartments sizes not really reflects the country wealth or land area, but reflects more the climate and lifestyle. Some examples:
USA and Australia houses are the biggest in the world due of lifestyle "bigger is better, waste resources", house sizes in USA varies greatly from north (cold) areas to south (hot) coastal areas. East Asian countries are wealthy but the houses are smaller due of lifestyle "don't built more than necessary". Malaysia houses are one of the biggest in the world due of equatorial climate and multi-generation family lifestyle. Russia, despite of being the biggest country, had in 1980s the smallest apartment sizes in Europe and in communist world. Some Romanian 2-room public apartments built in 1980s, despite of poorer country, are bigger than some 4-room Hong Kong private apartments built today.
