1st pic : Portriat mode better - depicts the narrow alley in a better way.

2nd pic: Landscape mode better - lets the viewer see the vast number of coloured flags spread out.

P.S. This is in Yunnan?

No, first pic is in Suzhou, one of those water village with a lot of waterways. 2nd pic is Shanghai, at the Pearl Tower in Putong.

I also favor portrait composition for the 1st picture, and landscape composition for the 2nd one.
