In no particular order:

Sliema (Malta): where I used to live when I was a little kid. It's changed a lot since then but I still like it. There's life: shopping, entertainment and high-rise buildings. It actually looks like a real city!

Uherske Hradiste (Czech Republic): that's where my mum was born and where my aunts, uncles and cousins live. Apart from that aspect of the town, it's surrounded by beautiful countryside, has an old castle nearby and is also good for shopping really (I got my mobile phone there around a year and half back). And did I mention the airport museum at nearby Uherske Hradiste - Kunovice airport with Turbolets galore  Big thumbs up?

Boston: Hometown and the most "European" of major, North American cities. I love the atmosphere and the fact that we have four, distinct seasons. I guess it's just civic pride. Drawback: Archaïc American drinking age of 21 leaves the under-21 nightlife rather limited. High prices and standard of living.

Montréal: Beautiful, classic city. I think part of my love is that it reminds me of home, but with a French accent (Such a cliché about Montréal). It's got amazing nightlife, incredibly friendly people (despite the American preconception), and amazing scenery (how many cities have an extinct volcano rising from the centre?). Also, the low cost of housing and goods and services are attractive. And with any luck, will be my new place of living within a year and a half. Drawbacks: Somewhat dirty through a lot of the city. A fair amount of homelessness. A less than robust economy. And finally...the language laws. I love French, I love speaking French, and I love French culture, but I absolutely do NOT love the way the Québec government goes about protecting it.

Other favourites:

1. Budapest, Hungary
2. Edinburgh, Scotland
3. Frankfurt, Germany
4. Vienna, Austria
5. Chicago, USA

LH 423 ....i would beg to differ on the under 21 night life scene in Boston specially in the case of international students. They all tend have ID's from their respective countries and who ever is under 21 gets in without a problem specially if you know people at the doors......and the most upscale and trendy of clubs in the city almost solely cater to the international students..... Venu,Aria,33,Embassy,caprice..etc

I mean, just have a look at this. This is Victoria/Rabat, where I live right now:


This is Sliema:


Just compare them. You can sense the dead boredom and monotony from the Rabat picture (which indeed I do feel often) while in the Sliema picture, well life just breathes out of it!
And don't give me any quality of living talks, either. I'd much rather be living in a small seaview apartment in lively Sliema than in one of those ancient Napoleon-era townhouses here in Rabat.

I believe the latest result of "The most livable city in the world" report came up with Vancouver, Canada and Melbourne, Australia in joint top position, based on all sorts of criteria including climate, crime rate, cost of living, recreational facilities, traffic congestion, public transport, educational facilities, clean environment etc.

I lived in Dublin, Ireland for 10 years, so that will always be close to my heart, especially the sense of youthfulness and fun and the increasing sense of European-ness which has sprung up in the last few years.

But Melbourne, where I live now, takes the biscuit - not particularly exciting to visit as a tourist, (compared to Sydney or various European cities like Paris or London or Rome), but to live - just perfect.

Amsterdam and San Fransisco are also enjoyable places to go.

If there was a "favorite hellhole" category, I'd say Quebec City for sure (I live there).

As far as favorite city goes, I guess mine would be Montreal...

Well I love my city even though most other people don't like it and it has a bad image because people listen too much to what they hear and also read a book by its cover. I live in a major industrial city which most people who pass through see but this is only a part of it some good things about Hamilton more Waterfalls than any other city in the world with 30plus with in 20 minutes of Downtown. Very Unique geography. If someone looking for a vacation you could stay here and be within a good drive between Toronto and Niagara falls.

Other cities I like Boston is nice but it has its bad spots and new york which also has its bad spots.
