The Top Ten
1 Tokyo, Japan Tokyo, officially Tokyo Metropolis, one of the 47 prefectures of Japan, has served as the Japanese capital since 1869.

After all, it will only be fair if I speak on a scale. The problem is Tokyo is the city I want to visit, even more so since learning Japanese. Once I mentally prepare a little more, I would also like to settle in Beijing.

Tokyo is the richest city in the world. It is also the largest, offering many places to visit. It's the most developed city globally, even richer than New York.

Imagine Tokyo as a Mega Las Vegas, but not in a desert and with cooler weather, which makes it even better.

2 Seoul, South Korea Seoul – officially the Seoul Special City – is the capital and largest metropolis of the Republic of Korea, forming the heart of the Seoul Capital Area, which includes the surrounding Incheon metropolis and Gyeonggi province, the world's 14th largest city and second largest metropolitan area.

Living in Seoul is cheaper than in Tokyo and Sydney. Both Tokyo and Seoul are exemplary cities, rich, clean, and where many people maintain high levels of hygiene.

Seoul became my unexpected favorite, surpassing other cities I've enjoyed like Tokyo, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, and Hanoi. It is well ahead of overrated cities like Beijing or places like Mumbai.

Seoul beautifully blends tradition with modernity, which I really appreciate. The long Seoul fortress that surrounds the city is truly fantastic.

Hong Kong is the safest place to live. I was born there, and it's totally awesome. It experiences few natural disasters and is a fantastic place. Hong Kong is like a mix of Western and Chinese culture, making it an international city.
