I haven't visited the whole world, unfortunately, but I think there's one city I like more than the others.
Although in general I don't particularly like the UK I think my favourite city in the world is

LONDON

Absolutely astonishing from all the point of views, it's classic, modern, full of parks, people are polite. It's definitely my favourite city, by far. I've already been there about 20 times but I'm always happy when I have to go because I love it!!!

Tie - Sydney NSW, and San Francisco CA (the candidates being drawn only from large cities). Paris (France, not Texas) has gotta be up there too.

Many other enticing and charming places...

...Austin, Texas, Tallahassee, Florida (no, really, it's a great town), New York, NY, Santa Fe NM.

Given the choice, I might never live in a large city, but that's where the money is.



...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

Hmm.

Well I live in Barcelona, which to me is wonderful, nice weather, cosmopolitan, modern, organized, good street life, etc.

I liked Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Zurich, Paris.

I think, therefore I don´t fly Ryanair.

My globe-trotting is not nearly as extensive as it is for some of you, but chalk another one up to London for me. I've been to some beautiful places and had some amazing experiences, but I feel as comfortable in London as I do in my home town. To me, it has the excitement, history, and wonder of a huge, world-class city, but can be as quaint and comfortable as a small village. Plus I don't particularly enjoy heat and/or sunlight  Wink

As far as places I enjoy in the United States, I'd have to say Charleston, SC is my favorite city--where tea is served correctly, without asking (sweet) and everyone's friendly and downright charming. For a complete opposite experience I do enjoy New York on occasion.

My girlfriend has suggested BCN for our next "adventure" and the more I read about it I'm excited to go. What a beautiful city!

Interesting choice! I've spoken to someone else who's traveled there and feels the same way. I must admit, it's not a place that would pop into my head automatically, but then again, the best places hardly ever are  Smile

Having been raised living in 6 countries on 4 continents and traveled to more than 35 countries, including all 7 continents there is only one place that has ever felt like home: London, England.

Barcelona gets my vote from a tourist point of view:

- great nightlife
- great food (everything you like)
- great weather most of the time
- great football
- easy to reach with many airlines from Germany
- easy and cheap to get around by public transport
- so many things to see and do

Usually I spend the time between Christmas and New Year there, unfortunately it was not possible this time. I hope to be back very soon!

My favorite "big" city if definitely Prague, CZ. But, my favorite place is Dačice, Czech Republic. I love Dačice because it is beautiful, essentially picture perfect, but it has a "lived in" feel. Also, the people there are friendly, warm and welcoming and the food is great (though, I've found thats true pretty much wherever you go in the Czech Republic)

For me it's London. I've been to quite a few cities in the US and Europe, but London tops them all. Even though I travel over quite often, I just always seem to get excited about going again. Love the buildings, people, parks, sports grounds, transport system, shops...and it's all just a short flight away.
