Although I don't live there, my personal preference is Wellington, New Zealand. I like it because it has a beautiful harbour, and much of it is nestled up amongst hills.

I look forward to your answers.

My fav city to live would be Toronto. It' has nice climate, big populated, good shops, airports (well quite good, I heard) and not so much crime, I think...

Naha, Japan. It has a wonderful subtropical climate, it has tons of shops, and wonderful beaches. A cool airport, too. Very beautiful place!

A big city with all the things you can do in a big city, but the same time a small city with a lot of water and places where you can be alone.

I live in LA, which is ok if you don't mind having to drive everywhere, and I mean EVERYWHERE as everything is spread out (which becomes very tiresome). I visited Toronto recently for the first time and was really impressed. What I like so much about Toronto was how clean and convenient it is to get around for such a big city, much like a civilized New York. Other cites I love. NYC, London, Paris, DC & SFO. To bad they are out of my price range, as I’d like to move.

New York City, all the way! Toronto is just a cheap rip off. The city is congestied and not even that much fun. It was designed for something like 2 million people, but now there are over 5 million living there. Traffic is atrocious there. And it's expensive too. Not as bad as Vancouver though. Calgary is a nice city to live in. Cheap, good airline connections, and very, very clean. And it's an hour from the rocky mountains! Edmonton is a disaster.

In Europe? I like London.

Asia? Tokyo, if it wasn't so expensive! Seoul is cool too.

It all depends what you like!

No offense, but Louis is WRONG in my view. Edmonton is not a disaster of a city! As a matter of fact, I like Edmonton just as much as Calgary! But the traffic's a pain in Calgary and getting around in Cowtown finding an address? Don't ask. I get a laugh when I hear Calgarians complaining they have a harder time finding an address in Edmonton than in their city! Calgary's not all that bad - it's got the view of the Rockies and it's only an hour and a half from the Rockies by car.

Edmonton may be like Winnipeg in flatness, but the river valley's great - nearly all of it is city parks and at least half of it is still forested. Edmonton's pretty clean - as a matter of fact, it's at least as clean as Calgary. Sometimes even cleaner.

It's true that Edmonton doesn't have the airline connections or the scenery that Calgary has. Nor is there as much to see there except for West Ed, as we call the mall - if you like crowded malls, that is. But it has its good points. A lot of visitors I have met say Edmonton's a friendlier city than Calgary! They often don't mind the mall - that's the main attraction, actually. And it's cheaper to live or stay there than in Calgary.

As a matter of fact, due to Calgary's rapid growth (it's expected to hit 1 million by 2008), I'd say Calgary is more of a disaster than Edmonton! The traffic and the housing and facilities crunch speak volumes.

Well, everyone's entitled to his or her own opinions. As this is a free discussion forum, Louis has as much right to express his views as anybody else! I know it's too bad he doesn't like being in Edmonton, but after all, Canada and the US are free countries! Hell, look at NYC! You either love it or you hate it, or so that's what I hear.

Now...what's my favorite cities?

Sydney's one of them, mate. I love the Sydney Harbour area and the view, especially of the downtown area and the Opera House! And the people there are the friendliest of any large city I've been to. That's despite the fact Sydney's now about 4.1 million - and growing faster than Toronto. Besides, I have family there in Sydney, too!

Like Louis, I like being in London, England. Been there several times.

Tokyo'd be neat, too. The Japanese language and the culture, and the SUSHI!

As for cities in North america, Vancouver's the best by far! I'm a little jealous of my brother, who lives there. You should see the scenery and the climate there. And it's a lively city. Edmonton and Calgary aren't certainly among the best cities in North America really, but they are definitely not the worst.

The best city in the world in which to live, with out a doubt, is Perth, Western Australia.

We have beaut weather, the best (and unspoilt) beaches in the world.

The lifestyle here is so laid back, any more laid back and you would swear we are all stoned hippies living in a huge commune

Louis, come on, New York City? You wouldn't be able to afford to live there for a week unless you had Bill Gates footing the bill!  

I have spent an entire week there on business and let me tell you something, if my company wasn't paying for it I would have to declare bankruptcy!

Depends where you live, dude. Manhatten? NO! I couldn't afford to live there if my life depended on it! But Queens is quite affordable. Besides, I really like Queens. It reminds me a whole lot of Greece.

Amsterdam, a trully beautiful city. Not the most known tourist places but the Amsterdam where the local citizens live.

London would be probably, but the people is not very nice (cold, unemotional, boring).

I like Geneva, Switzerland and Abu Dhabi, UAE. Geneva is a nice city at the lake with many celebrities living there. Abu Dhabi is spectacular because to get there you have to drive two hours through the desert and when you get there it looks like new york. But no criminality and people living in 4000sqm apartments.

Been all over the US, Europe, and parts of Canada and Mexico. There are so many great cities out there, and all are great for different reasons!!! Since no city combines EVERYTHING, here's my favorites:
Favorite Nightlife: New York City (nothing comes close)
Favorite for Outdoor Activities: Los Angeles (my home town) - I've snow-skiied and gone to the beach in the same day (really). Enough said.
Favorite Culture: Rome - Incredible history and Italians are great people
Most Beautiful: San Francisco - it's so scenic it makes me ill
Best Transportation (airport, subway, roads): Munich or Paris
Most beautiful people: Miami - a model everytime you turn around in South Beach  

My overall favorite: Los Angeles. People like it or don't, but I love it! Good climate in winter AND summer, the air is the cleanest it's been in ages, and tons of stuff to do. But I still love travelling!!!!

For best looking women, I think Rio de Janerio wins, hands down! Miami would be close second. Honolulu third.

25 Travelin man : OK, maybe Rio. I've never been, and it's on my list of places to go (along with Australia, mate!). But still, South Beach is mighty tough to beat!!
26 Nicolaki : My favorite city to go would be San Francisco, it is the most beautiful place I`ve ever seen !

29 Post contains links Lauda 777 : Stockholm of course! http://www.stockholm.se
30 Post contains images Qantas747 : Brisbane, Australia, or Gold Coast, Australia, Why?????? I think it is because these two cities have beautiful beaches, nice hot sun and the Gold Coas
31 Fidel castro : Havana, Cuba. Its a socialists paradise
32 Scotty : Edinburgh. Great scenery, great pubs, great restaurants, great when we hump England at Murrayfield, rubbish viewing at Airport.
