Which major city in the world is the best to live in?

I am curious to hear what others have to say about their experiences in other cities.

For me Tokyo, hands down. My reasons:

Pros
Modern
Clean
Convienent
Great style and fashion
Tons to do and see all the time
Train network is massive

Cons
Ethnic/foreign food is not very authentic
Museums are not really that great

First Ive never been to 90% of the places listed sooo ...


I picked NY for one big reason. Everytime I go there, even if its just for a short period of time I NEVER want to leave. It has everything a man could want in such a small area. Its wonderful, it even has its own culture, which Im sure many places do. I love it. It even has a Ferrari show room!!!

Im hoping to go to Med-School in NYC so Ill have to hit the showroom at least once a week.

I've only been in 7 of that list, so that's a bit hard too choose then

and to find out better about a city, you need to live there for some months
not just go there on a holiday

Ive never been to any of those cities other than 10 minutes in Waterloo station in London on my way to the east coast.

Ive heard fantastic things about NY and when my old boss bought his video camera home from his holiday there, its like nothing ive ever seen.

I would choose Sydney. I have been to half the above and Sydney is by far the best.
It had the usual big city attractions like bars, clubs and great restaurants and sights and then when you just want to get away from the city 20 mins in most directions there is a beach so you get city life and beach life all in one.

I've been to 5 of the cities listed above and transited through probably another 5. They are all great places to visit. I don't think I'd want to live in any of them. Although city life has a lot of advantages, it has some drawbacks also. I prefer a rural lifestyle. The town I live in has a population of less than 3,000. You throw open a window and you hear birds instead of sirens.

I have been to Kuala Lumpur and I was not impressed by that city
I have been to London and that is where I would like to live if I had to leave the Netherlands
I have been in Paris and although pretty the people there speak french
I have been to Amsterdam and I like it to go for a beer,

But as far as I am concerned: Rotterdam is a very nice place to live in. In fact I just recieved the keys of the house I bought in the city center of that city. Also waiting for a faster internet connection so I can be more active here again!

Yes, Rotterdam is very nice. I spent about 3 months there at Verolme Botlek a bunch of years ago. In fact, I still have a jacket from the Pico bar in Rozenburg (A sailor bar). Congrats on the house Niels!
