The Top Ten

1
Islamabad
It is an amazing;highly developed and absolutely safe capital city, but also regarded as one of the best capitals in Asia and can be competed with any glorious capital city in the world - even from a highly developed country. There is no doubt that international developments are rapidly appearing in nearly every corner of the city. Its unique and awe-inspiring surrounding makes it more than a capital! If compared with Delhi (capital of India) it will surely win. Each and every Pakistani should pleased with such a world-class capital, despite the financial crisis political and religious conflicts, vulnerability to terrorism across the country and several other issues. Thus making a Pakistani proud for what he/she has
I love this city I search in Internet for this city is so beautiful I have never been there always wanna be there but I live in London it is in Pakistan I have heard that Pakistan is so beautiful place to visit I love this country always wanna be there I love there national anthem as well I can't understand in there language but the translation is so beautiful
Clean and green, peaceful and quiet with all sorts of places to go to and all sorts of activities to do.
[Newest]I love Islamabad a very safe and quite palace

2London
London has more history and it's landmarks are recognised throughout the world. It's one of the world's top financial cities and at the height of the British Empire it was the most powerful city in the world.
'When a man is tired of London! He is tired of life' - You can find almost anything and anyone (one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world, anyone from any country will surely find a restaurant or shop or community centre belonging to theirs), there's constantly new things opening here and new areas to explore (I. E dalston and Stratford being redeveloped), there's something for everyone and it's so easy to get around with the underground transport, this is also where much of the world has been ruled and developed from historically and where so much has and will happen
London is the natural and totally apt international cosmopolitan capital of the cultural world. No other city can come close to the historical, cultural diversity, architectural, commercial, financial and internationally connected hub that London is. It spans the globe and belongs to everyone on the planet!
[Newest]My favourite city in the world...

3Paris
Paris is for sure the most beautiful city in the world, and has so much landmarks! If I were a country, it would be the 11th economy in the world! Paris is strong on all fronts and is therefor the world's best capital city
Beatiful architecture, few eyesores, great atmosphere
Paris is a romantic city with beautiful monuments, perfect shopping and restaurant, very different neighborhoods and good transportation. I travelled a bit and nothing is equal to Paris!
[Newest]I'm Italian and I've travelled a lot around the world. I've never visited a more beautiful city than Paris. It's not perfect, but is has both magnificent buildings and small streets and churches.

4Berlin
Even after being completely destructed during the 2nd world war in 1945, still city like berlin was able to rise up and include itself amongst the topmost earning and the busiest capitals of the world.
One of the best city I have ever been!
So much history and very nice people, I would say this is by far better than London as it is safe and not full of drug smugglers who want to mug you. There is a diverse culture, many museums and fantastic architecture. So vote for the best!
[Newest]Best city I have been too! Amazing culture, great history, people are friendly, lots to see and do. Great public transport, mega cheap for a capital city, easy to get around and amazing nightlife! So much more I could say!

5Washington
A great capitol city with impressive architecture
Nightlife there is awesome, I gotta visit again ^^
I'm American and I have family in DC. It used to be quite violent but in the last ten years it has emerged as a clean, safe, nice city. Great History and a lot to do.

6Tokyo
Incredibly safe and clean, amazing foods, fashion, arts, sophisticated cultures, you are just spoiled for choices.
In the Japan itself it has proved its hardwork
Beautiful city with both modern and traditional part nice people and food
[newest]
I love Tokyo because it is... ,well a beautiful city

7Canberra
Is actually the capital of Australia, not Sydney, which seems to be higher rated in this list.
I live in Canberra and I find it a very nice and safe place, however it can get very boring compared to other cities as it is not as large and is mostly suburbs.
The dumbass who put Sydney on the list obviously knows nothing about Australia. THIS is the capital city, not Sydney!
[Newest]I agree with you saying its boring.

8Rome
Rome is wonderful city, which I have visited. It is wonderful to see such great constructions and historical legacy Rome have, especially the monuments speaks their history and culture
Birthplace of the roman empire, church, so much history! Totally amazing!
Everything there is amazing.
[Newest]Rome is definitely one of the most beautiful cities ever

[newest]
Number one its beautiful, low crime rate, and clean as hell what more do you need.

12Ottawa
Ottawa is magnificent. The Neo Gothic Parliament Buildings are second to none. The Parliament Buildings are situated on Parliament Hill, on a precipice overlooking the Ottawa River and Province of Quebec across the river. Ottawa has some of the best "green belt" parks of any city in the world, let alone a capital city. It is a compact city, easy for walking. In the winter, it is glorious to skate on the Rideau Canal, a UNESCO Heritage Site. Is amazing to see civil servants, with their long coats, suits, ties and brief cases, skating to work on the Rideau Canal. Where else in the world would one see this? Amazing. In May the tulip festival is also worth a visit. The tulips are an annual gift from The Netherlands in thanks for Canada harbouring Queen Juliana, who gave birth to one of her daughters while in exile during WW2 in Ottawa. The Dutch have never forgotten. Ironically, it was the Canadian army that liberated most of Holland in WW2. In the summer, there is Chamberfest, an annual Chamber Music Festival for music lovers. Lots of great museums in Ottawa. See photos of the 78 officers who escaped in the tunnel in The Great Escape at the Air Force Museum in Ottawa. The National Art Gallery is worth a visit to the city. Great collection.
Its perfect! Good night life, world class museums, many land marks, great places for site seeing, great food and culture. Also it's not a concrete city, balancing nature with the city, a great place to visit in all seasons

Beautiful Ottawa
Amazing place, can't be beat. The best part is enjoying a nice crisp winter day in ottawa!
[Newest]I love Ottawa best city in the world ever

13New Delhi
Delhi has the worlds best malls I refer to select city walk. The Christmas celebrated in this mall Farr better than the New York Rockefeller centre one.
The only city in the world to have a long historical background even before Buddha was born
New Delhi has the historical monuments coolest places in India.

14Madrid
Just amazing! A beautiful city were history is in the air, it's also remarkable that it was the most powerful city in the world during the Spanish Empire. Best gastronomy on the whole globe. Full of museum, amazing monuments and one of europe's biggest parks, the Parque del Retiro, with statues and a big pond with little boats on it. A modern, metropolitan city where tradition and modernity are combined wisely.
Amazing nightlife, amazing culture, amazing art, amazing people! Number 1 for me and I am from Barcelona.
Very nice city with lots of contrasts between old buildings and modern structures. Very interesting

15Brasilia
Moving and good nightlife a

16Helsinki
Friendly people and beautiful sights.

17Seoul
Seoul is the a bit underesteemed treated as unpopular city but if you go over and experience there, you might turn your impresson of it. It combines varaity of shopping that has many products to choose, sightseeing that is unique not a spectacular but breeze on spring and autumn season and exotic night cultures... Etc. Try to go there! It's treasure under the sea. !
Seoul is a very nice place to visit.
There are lots of modern buildings and skyscrapers and it's a pleasant place for the foreign visitors, since it's very developed city.
There are also lots of historical sights based on Korean history, so it's a good place to learn and experience about Korea's history.
Seoul is a very nice place to visit.
Seoul has lots of major buildings and skyscrapers that you would like to have a look.
There are lots of fancy shops that you would like to go in your spare time.

The problem is that Beijing is in China and it kinda has a communist government

23Riga
A great city to have fun in summer and winter.

24Dublin
Lovely city, rich in history and culture. Ideal for a city break. The People are really friendly also and there are plenty of great bars, restaurants and nightclubs. Little bit pricy though and the public transport is poor in some areas
Beautiful city, lots to do, green spaces are plentiful, people are great for the most part... Overall it's a great city and great representation of Ireland as a whole.
A vibrant city with many cultural venues and a great night life, situated along a beautiful coast line (take the dart coastal train for some amazing views) the locals are friendly and its also very safe. would recommend a visit.

25Baku
Baku, one of the most beautiful world’s cities is located at the joint of Europe and Asia, on the coast of the Caspian See, Baku is the capital of Azerbaijan and the largest city in the Caucasus. There are some magnificent views around the city. Most of the tourists, who come here, are interested in this country’s history and cultural heritage, which, by the way, is extremely rich. Yet, it would not be fair not to mention the fact that this is indeed an astonishing city, housing some fascinating landmarks. A UNESCO World Heritage Sight, the Old City is located in the heart of Baku. Baku is definitely the most beautiful capital-city in the world, where ancient historical land meets extremely modern civilization!
Baku is Amazing! Ancient and modern at the same time!
Life would be incomplete without charm of Baku! City must see! The most beautiful and magnificent capital in the world!
[Newest]Baku is the dirtiest (or used to be) capital in the world.

26Dhaka
Capital of one of the most fast developing country, Bangladesh. In recent times, people of Bangladesh celebrated 400 years of Dhaka as capital city. Dhaka has a long history of fall & rise. But she always has been the centre attraction of education, politics, revolution, economics etc. She is the 12th mega city of the world. She has so many places of historical interest.
She is considered as the heart of the People of Bangladesh.

umadbro


47Hanoi
Some Americans might not be so keen on going here, particularly the Vietnam Veterans. THEY MUST FORGET THE PAST AND LOOK AT THE PRESENT. Hanoi is full of historical temples, French colonial architecture, delicious and cheap food, friendly people, upscale shopping malls, shady trees, and peaceful lakes. If you drive 3 hours to the East, there is the wonderful world heritage site Halong Bay. Even though Hanoi belongs in SE Asia, the weather is very temperate and not tropical. November to March is quite comfortable. Finally, the hustle and bustle of motorcycles on the streets really makes you feel like Vietnam is in a huge economic boom.
It might not appeal so nice to some Americans, especially the Vietnam Veterans. THIS IS A MISTAKE. Delicious food, cheap products, friendly people, full of trees, and charming lakes.
