I think a number of factors could determine this such as the amount of money you have in your pockets to invest in your higher education as well as the subject you are planning to major in.  

if you are planning to study arts and soft sciences, it would be better to explore options in Europe. This is because most Europe countries have a history with art and culture so their institutes are well known for the respective subjects.  

On the other hand, if you are aiming to study science or subjects that include a lot of scientific or medical research, Western countries would be the best options. This is for the reason that they have ample resources and the west is where most technological advancements take place (after china).  

Lastly, a factor that may influence your decision is that higher education is cheaper in Eastern countries as compared to the West.
