What? No a place from Turkey?  There is the most friendly people there! English, French, Italien they all wanted Anatolia but no! Our chunk became stronger with our soldiers' blood and?? IT IS THE MOST HISTORICAL PLACE YOU CAN EVER SEE! Search "Kapadokya, Hagia Sofia, Dolmabahçe Palace, Topkapı Palace, Anıtkabir(Atatürk, we love you), Pamukkale, MiniaTurk" and the other things i can't remember. Okay, i agree taxes are high but it is really good man. (Plz don't comment about "tayyip thing")

The answer to where is the best place to live in part depends on how wealthy you are.  there are some absolutely amazing places to live if money is no object -- Central London, The Marais in Paris , Manhattan (probably the only really world class city in America), Rome, Monaco, Switzerland, Mallorca, The Amalfi Coast, Provence, Bali and the list goes on.  For pure fabulousness -- food, culture, interesting landscapes, history, enlightened attitudes, Europe simply can't be beat.   If you are after a cheap white trash world, Central Florida probably tops the list!

Somehow, I doubt the the worlds top ten best places to live are large metropolitan areas.

I've been to all the places mentioned. Even with all our problems including Obama, the USA rocks.

Best beaches - Cote d'Azure - France

Best Food - Genoa Italy

Friendliest people - Malta EU

Crazy excitement - Jakarta Indonesia

Funniest People - Munich Germany

Most polite - Fukuoka Japan

Most exotic - Ubud Bali Indonesia

Best shopping - Singapore

Best sporting life - Ketchikan  Alaska

Are you kidding me? I've lived in Australia for most of the last 8 years, and due to business ties am temporarily stuck here. The highest taxes, they even have a 10 percent tax on food. In Sydney just getting from the airport to the CBD takes less than 30 minutes and sets you back 28 bucks. A very arrogant `culture, though they emulate all the cultures that are worth emulating. Politically? Forget about it. Definitely not as good a place to live as 10 others I've lived in, and I've never lived in the other 9 on the list. Who put this list together without researching more fully is a comedian.

The guy who put up the list have not travelled too much and or have lived only in a limited number of places. Definitely the list should include Lviv (Lwov) in Ukraine, Belgrade in  Serbia, Sarajevo in Bosnia, and I would even consider Bucarest in Romania.. Quality of life there is beyond your imagination..


Forget Duesseldorf.. too much beer drinking there, Geneve for to much of robberies (but French usually are involved and Zurich for smelly cheeses..

After Nigerian independence in 1961, the old Calabar Kingdom, the Ijaws,etc and the igbo people were grouped together to form the Eastern Region of Nigeria (one of the initial three regions of Nigeria, and later became one of the four regions of Nigeria). The capital of the Eastern Region was at Enugu, an Igbo city. Smile

Dusseldorf in the top 10?! No way. I've been there and of all the European cities, it has the most homeless people I've ever seen. It was heartbreaking seeing so many homeless. These reviewers haven't taken a good look at some of the cities. And Austria? One name: Joerg Haider. They should ask someone he despises (such as non-whites or Jews) whether life is good in Vienna. Zurich? Give me a break! I lived there for six months. They've got the meanest, most racist cops in Europe. It would be VERY difficult to find a job that could pay the food and gas bills alone in Zurich. People in the US were once whining about paying $2.89 a gallon for fuel. I had to pay the equivalent of $4 a gallon and this way before 2008. This reviewer clearly knows nothing about the cities he/she's reviewing.

The best city is definitely Saratoga Springs, Utah.  The weather is perfect almost all year round you may get 6 snow days 6 heat days in a whole year, low crime, surrounded by beautiful mountains and the lake is less than 5 minutes from anywhere in the city.  It's a city with low taxes, great city services and since the nearest hospital is 25 minutes away they have heli ports along the lake to get you to an emergency hospital in less than 5 minutes.  On a good day you will see deer, cows, horses, sheep, goats and yet the place is very clean, classy and great neighbors anywhere you go.  You can sleep with your doors and windows open and still feel safe.  You can't beat that.

I'm an American & lived in frankfurt 3 years.  It must be different for a German because I found it dirty, petty crime & general rudeness compared to other German cities.

Costa Rica by far is the best.  Best quality of life, best climate, best people, best beaches, volcanoes, and rivers in the world.  Not to mention it has huge malls and good hospitals in the city with everything that America can offer, then right outside of the city is the peace and tranquility and nature we all die for.

This is just proof that criteria is everything.  It would seem that this list takes Germanic cleanliness and punctuality as a primary factor to utter excess.  Dozens of Mediterranean cities can easily be identified as nicer places to live.  That fact that no mention of Mediterranean cities like Barcelona (where I have lived), or at least a dozen towns in Italy and Greece I can come up with off-hand, really casts a pall on the survey.  Mediterranean food, weather, friendliness and living, breathing culture certainly trumps, and easily, the urban spawl of Dusseldorf, or the recently rebuilt Munich, no matter how nice their free concerts in the parks could be.  What could they be thinking?   The openness and friendliness of the Mediterranean the locals, along with the excellent quality and proven health benefits of its cuisine, makes so many places between Seville and Genova far better choices.   Zurich makes a nice Postcard, Valencia (Spain) makes a full life, thank you.

This is just one of hundreds of lists (every publication on Earth puts out its own version).  It doesn't make it factual...far from it.  This list makes it sound like the rest of the world is wiping its backside with leaves & seeing the sights by horse and carriage while fighting off thugs at every turn!!  If you're the "Forbes" type... predominantly financially well off, white, middle aged, generally scared of anything that might be a departure from the old boys country club standard, and looking for "traditional" leisurely pastimes [opera, theater, museums, and restrooms with bidets,  then this list is for you.  However, for those of us who would die of boredom without more than the Mozart/cathedral/ botanical garden type scene the list is MUCH different.
