Favorite City Anywhere in the World

The Top Ten

1 New York, New York

New York is the greatest city in the world. I can honestly say this because although I don't even live there, no other place in the world can truly say it is the greatest. The way it bounced back from the despicable attacks of 911 prove the strength and humanity of this city. It was, is and will always be the greatest.

Italy may be famous for its pizza but this is where you can find the most (and best).

I went on a three-day trip here and had about ten full pizzas. And I'm not even fat. - arbeZameniC

Gotta be New York for me! So much going on! Wonderful feel about the place!



Screw London mates. London is very boring. The only good things about it are good views of Big Ben, some grand churches, nice tea, large football stadiums and exciting matches, and the likeable, highly-respected royal family.

New York has more art and entertainment (venues), and the city offers a variety of food, each with diverse origins and history. Speaking of history, NYC has history in everything; from the brownstone buildings to the modern-day glass shards that dwarf even The Shard in London. Plus when it comes to views, as much as London is nice, New York is AWESOME. Awesome > Nice.

Londoners/Londonians live in a city with weather. Too bad for them.

New York's magnitude is FAR greater than what London has.

New York is THE financial capital of the world, NOT London.

2 Tokyo, Japan

History of the past, present and future. The city once called Edo, many people fought on wars, then the world war 1 and 2, to become the best city in the world. Less traffic, more trains, very industrious people. Anime, video games, girls at its best! - ronluna

If you don't visit this place before you die, you'll regret it. You will miss many beautiful things, music, celebrities, places, technology, etc. - ronluna

Even before the 1st world war, Tokyo was called edo, before a western visits the country.
Rome is one of the oldest cities in the world, then those European countries, United States of america was still in the hands of britain and edo is already a city
This one should be in top 3 - ronluna

Has over 160,000 restaurants!

3 Rome, Italy

The Architecture, the history, the people, the food, the pure Culture! It's such an Amazing city! - heather

Fantastic,beautiful,its a spectacular magnificent city.

New York is full of cars, tall buildings and pollution, Rome has everything from modern to romantic, old and ancient. Rome is so beautiful, and New York can't ever offer beauty anymore

I grew up in Rome so of course I'm going to vote for my home city

4 London, UK

London is the best city. It's suitable for all ages, it has the Big Ben, the London Eye, the Buckingham palace,... What else do you want?

P.S. - I'm a ten year old Portuguese boy.

I was born in America, but the second I am of legal age, I am moving. this is the giant of all the world and civilized culture. the smartest, most charming city yon will ever find.

I can tell There is a lot of Japanese on this website. Japan cities are ruling the board. 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th. But there Desperately polluted and Expensive. London is not. Also there is so many things to do.

London, how I miss living there!

Not as pretty as Osaka but closer to New York.

6 Berlin, Germany

Rise of Germany, Fall of the Third Reich and Re-unification of Germany, World Cup Final 2006 and Opening game of the 2011 FIFA Womens World Cup in Germany.

12 Moscow, Russia
13 Seoul, South Korea 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.

Seoul is the best I've been to - it's not only in terms of tourist attractions but in the culture and the quality of life. I haven't found a city with both colorful and extensive street food like they have in Myeongdong or Gwangjang market. Places like Korean saunas and jjimjilbangs have the healthiest attitudes towards alternative lifestyles. And the really pretty people. Not so many too fat, not too many too thin. Everyone just really good. And the side dishes, I should not fail to mention.

Seoul is the best city in the world, the only place where people are nicer is Apulia, Italy!


14 Taipei, Taiwan
15 Washington D.C., United States

With the Smithsonian, the White House, the Capital, and so many other things to visit, and the history, this city may not be clean, but its worth the visit! - heather

16 Bangkok, Thailand

I cannot believe this! Thailand is the most favorite city in Southeast Asia that is known for an exquisite house of a King with a serving heart, The Grand Palace!
