What makes a place a good one to visit, is very different from what makes a place a good one to live, so I can only speculate on a good answer. I would choose to say that, of all the places I have visited, the one likely to be the best to live in would be Hoi An. It is fast growing but not in the intense fashion that Hanoi is growing.
It is both advancing well into modernity but also doing a good job of keeping the local culture alive and focusing on work/life balance. I think that this is far too often overlooked in our society, and is important for long term mental and physical health. While I may have just gotten that impression from my short time spent there, it definitely seems like a less stressful place to live than Hanoi, and has much cleaner air, which we all know also plays a huge part in our long term health.
Though personally, I think the part about living there that I would enjoy the most is the proximity to the beach. I would love to be able to casually spend weekends swimming and playing in the sand!

If you had the chance to live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
This is a very difficult question, because I think the answers are different if it was living short term or living long term. Short term I would love living in South America, perhaps Brazil. It just seems like such an exciting place. The dancing and the music, the BBQ, and the mystery of the Jungle. Though if I were to answer long term, I would probably be inclined to say Japan because of the healthy food, long life expectancy and general cleanliness.
life expectancy /ˈlaɪf ɪkˌspek.tən.si/: tuổi thọ
Ex: Life expectancy in Europe increased greatly in the 20th century.
What qualities make for a good place?
That would very much depend on the person and their lifestyle preferences, though I would say for myself it is a mixture of a few things. Access to good quality, healthy food is very important. Next would be safety, I do not want to live anywhere with a high crime rate or gun violence. The last thing would likely be stability, mostly with the government. If there is even the small chance of war, I do not want to be living there.
lifestyle (n) /ˈlaɪf.staɪl/: lối sống
Ex: He doesn't have a very healthy lifestyle.
Stability (n) /stəˈbɪl.ə.t̬i/: sự ổn định bền vững
Ex: We are under a period of political stability.
