I though this would be an interesting thread. I'm Asian and while I wasn't born in America, I was raised here for most of my life with some time in both Singapore and Mumbai.

What American cities do you hear of most often in your country or area? Which ones are the most popular and which ones the least?

Here's some of them by size: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Philadelphia, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, Detroit, Seattle, Phoenix, Minneapolis, Denver, San Diego, Las Vegas, Cleveland, Orlando, Tampa, Portland, and so on.

LA (Hollywood, movies, etc)

Interesting to see Virginia Beach there. Cuz I always remember hearing the likes of Washington DC and Boston mentioned more often than Virginia Beach among Filipinos. The rest of the list is spot on in my experience.
