Both a town and a village are located in rural areas, and while they both have a fresher and cleaner environment, villages and towns have several differences. One is their land areas. Villages have smaller land areas than towns since towns are villages that have expanded or extended annexing nearby villages. A town has a larger land area. People who live in towns have more access to the market and shops, as well as the fire and police station. A village does not have a mayor or any local laws since it is part of a town and governed by the town officials.

A village is often lacking in transportation facilities and other services. There are more employment opportunities in towns than in villages. Education is better quality in towns. Banks and other local establishments are located in towns, which make them more economically productive and provide the people there with more opportunities.
