There are hundreds of megacities around the world, This list shows cities with the best-Wealth, GDP, Public Transport, Crime Rate, Facilities and some others.

The Top Ten

1 London, United Kingdom

Well, actually you tried to (and still are trying to) do it. There are not even 30 countries in the world UK didn't try to conquer. Just a fact. I'm not against UK at all, but most people who tried to obtain power usually didn't govern accurately. I wouldn't vote as capital city any of the cities of the "Developed Countries" but I'd rather choose one of the countries that are emerging. In fact, I don't think there should even be a World Capital, for that could create a centralization that could lead to inequity and confront. Politics is complex as it's almost impossible to satisfy everyone. - keyson

Sorry about the partiality with the developing and the developed nations, but you cannot guarantee that at one stage the developing nations will be more developed than the previously developed nations. - yatharthb

Are you developed under developed or nearly developed or over developed. Or are you still unsure of your development. - Champmash

Best city in the world bar none, something for everyone here.

2 New York, United States

It doesn't. You'll regret it. You'd hate it there. It's already over crowded, dirty, full of crime, etc pick some other place

When people think of big cities New York City is what that comes to mind.

It does deserve to be capital. You won't regret it. You'll love it there. It's not actually as crowded, dirty, or crime-filled as some naysayers say.

Most advanced city of this world!

3 Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo has been the capital of Japan for more than 400 years and been peaceful. it has by far more tradition and technology than any other cities has. It also has energy to create new things.

Considering Imperialist Japan's ambitions was to make it the world capital, ironic.

The largest City in The World can be the World Capital!

This should be number 1!

4 Paris, France

Paris is economically one of the three strongest cities in the world, bustling with economic activities and also a "Grand" and beautifully made city thanks to Napoléon III & Haussmann. Paris as a city also has the second largest revenue amongst it's companies at around 1.4 trillion USD per year.

This makes Paris the second strongest city in the world just behind Tokyo.

The district of La Defense is the fist is the largest business district in all of Europe and the first in term of number of skylines among the most famous.

Splendid city, architectures from ages to modern building, among the most numerous cathedrals and Churches, abundance of all kinds of restaurants offering top international cuisine and of course French one.

So many theaters, exhibitions, festivals etc...

And that also through the country France.

I don't think there should be a world capital since cities are horrid that is why there should more suburbs on this list. - ketchup

I think that it is a bit too small to be the world capital - yatharthb

5 Hong Kong, China Hong Kong, China Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the eastern side of the Pearl River estuary in East Asia.

Love it! - PopGeorge1678

6 Oslo, Norway Oslo, Norway
7 Reykjavik, Iceland
8 Moscow, Russia

I think Putin would agree.

Yes, just to put America down to be honest, east should've won the Cold War

No offense, but seriously? Moscow? The
Whole world would be screwed then!

Umm... You do realize that Moscow IS the capital of Russia?

9 Sydney, Australia

I like sydney that's why

The most beautiful modern city in the world

10 Edinburgh, Scotland

The Contenders

11 Rome, Italy

Rome is a dirty city, chaotic and Italian are among the worst people in the world and certainly the most lazy, arrogant, rude, obsolete of western Europe.

They tried that already, but then they dropped the ball and got beat up by some goth kids. - Torchpost

Rome is now peanuts compared to modern cities.
WOrking there and making business with Italians is absolutely the obstacle course, Italians are so lazy, corruptible, liars and scammers, that it's like a fight against a wall.
And on top of that Rome is an absolute topsy-turvy city, will never be even capital of Europe.
London eats 200 hundreds Rome for its daily breakfast.

12 Glasgow, Scotland

Yes, Glasgow is certainly one of the most famous capital en the world and in the top 3 in Europe.
Also Scotland is known for its famous castles, beaches and food.

13 Berlin, Germany Berlin, Germany

Hitler once made it the greatest city in Europe, but imperialists did nothing to develop it. - yatharthb

Berlin is 1 of the best In europe - TheChipotleAnt

Best city.
friendly people
great nightlife
beautiful
rich
cheap

love Berlin

14 Dublin, Ireland Dublin, Ireland
15 Amsterdam, Netherlands Amsterdam, Netherlands
16 Shanghai, China

This would be the best choice. It is about halfway between America and Europe. It's the largest city in the world, bar none (within city limits). It's not the capital of anything else. It's on the edge of China, on the sea, so it could easily be detached from that country to form a Federal District. China has more than a billion people, the detachment of Shanghai would not even put a dent in them. It is a modern and prosperous city, and it already has an international ambience. This would be the best capital for Earth.

It should be the capital of china, No joke Shanghai should really be a capital of china - TheChipotleAnt

The financial capital of Asia and soon the world! - PolishGuy

Beautiful, clean and green City.

19 Chicago, United States

Chicago by far should lead the city cause Chicago is bad ass plain any simple

Food, architecture, places to go, sports teams, THERE THE BEST AT EVERYTHING

I love Chicago, they have music, food, sports. It is a perfect city. Well, unless you count the 107 year cubs losing streak, GL cubs fans :) (i'm not hatin. )

It has beaitiful builds and amazing views of the lake. Chicago is the greatiest city

Toronto deserves to be the capital instead of Ottawa!

The most idyllic western city ever!

22 Beijing, China Beijing, China

COOL - PopGeorge1678

23 Pyongyang, North Korea Pyongyang, North Korea

It might sound silly but aliens won't attack us if they see Kim Jong un in charge of this place. They'll just think "if the rest of this planet's like that, then we can't be bothered invading them

Kim Jong-Un's dream, may never become reality - yatharthb

Hey, Watch Out. Pyongyang is developing really fast under Marshal Kim Jong-Un, It certainly can become the capital of Korea after the reunification. - yatharthb

I am Kim Jong Un and I am friend with Osama Bin Laden. Our city, Pyeongyang is much more better than New York, London, Paris, Berlin etc. Also it is the most effective city after Beijing and Shanghai. I will invade the whole world and make my capital in Pyongyang.

Hahaaa! NO.

24 Istanbul, Turkey Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul is already called the capital of the world. A city where Europe and Asia meet

Istanbul is the hub of world between east and west

25 Olympia, Greece
26 Los Angeles, United States Los Angeles, United States

Not only the greatest city in the U. S but the most diverse city in the world. Without LA there wouldn't be Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Studio City and a lot of headquarters of famous businesses. All the celebrities live in the Bel-Air Estates and LA is just a big cultural city that could be the center of the World.

Really? the most phoney city in the world? Who cares about all the celebreties who live there in their extravaganza houses? Are they gonna start to tell the world how to live ( they do it already now but it would be worse ) our lives?

27 Montreal, Canada Montreal, Canada

It's the tourism capital of North America, festival heaven! Great infrastructure, it feels like Los Angeles but improved!

Festivals EVERYWHERE! Montreal would be nice for a world capital honestly!

Yes it sure deserves world capital

28 Dubai, United Arab Emirates Dubai, United Arab Emirates

Dubai is more of a tourist destination than a economic or Cultral capital.and people only see the good side of Dubai.no one considers the human rights problems or the poverty that the workers have to face.and plus.It's BOILING HOT. - 12cc

29 Tehran, Iran

Only in Ayatollah Khomeini's wildest wet dream would that ever happen.

30 Karachi Karachi

It should be the world's capital

31 Compton, California
32 Ahmedabad, India
33 Cusco, Peru

Machu Picchu in the top of the world! :D

34 Cape Town, South Africa
35 Melbourne, Australia

A great city, should be higher than sydney

36 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Safe, vibrant, and tolerant city, deserved better spots.

37 Philadelphia, United States Philadelphia, United States Philadelphia is the largest city in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the sixth-most populous city in the United States, with an estimated population of 1,567,872 and more than 6 million in the seventh-largest metropolitan statistical area, as of 2016.

Never! This is a joke right top 20! Lol

38 Auckland, New Zealand

Kinda small though... - PopGeorge1678

Beautiful city

39 Geneva, Switzerland

Geneva is famous for being neutral and is a global bank.

40 Adelaide, Australia

6th safest city and greatest so why not

41 Mumbai, India

One of the fastest developing cities in the world, Mumbai has a rich culture and people of various race, religions, etc congregate here. Once you live in this friendly atmosphere, you will never want to leave it. Given its high GDP growth rate, it will soon emerge as the world leader. Mumbai Meri Jaan!

You should also mention the high poverty rate, the high slum population, unhygienic conditions and the polluted air. - yatharthb

42 Liverpool, United Kingdom
43 Kiev, Ukraine
44 Vilnius, Lithuania
45 Detroit, United States

God Bless Us! Detroit would screw the world!

46 Ottawa, Canada

It is not about being civil it's about being a nice city. - ketchup

Most civil place on earth!

47 Buenos Aires, Argentina
48 Las Vegas, United States Las Vegas, United States Las Vegas, officially the City of Las Vegas and often known simply as Vegas, is the 28th-most populated city in the United States, the most populated city in the state of Nevada, and the county seat of Clark County.

I know this is a list with positive comments, but honestly Las Vegas will suck its only Casino, Hotels, Spa and rich restaurants.

The only thing this city is good for it is gambling, drinking, strip clubs, and tasty restaurants.

Too much gambling and cheating yourself out of money for what a lousy hotel, poker, and a m&m factory

49 San Francisco, United States
50 Bangkok, Thailand
