There are some similarities and some differences between Bangkok and Montreal. On the one hand, both cities are built on rivers. Montreal is built on the St. Lawrence River, and Bangkok is built on the Chao Phraya River. Both Montreal and Bangkok have great food. Montreal has some of the best French restaurants in the world. Bangkok has many kinds of delicious curry. Both cities are business centres. Montreal is the business centre of the province of Quebec, and it used to be the business centre of Canada until the 1970s. Bangkok is the business centre of Thailand.
