Me too, I lived in Bali for a year and it was wonderful - food, people, scenery, culture, customs, lifestyle, art, attitude - loved it all.

I have been to Manila, (British) Hong Kong, Jakarta, Yogjakarta, Bali and Singapore several times in Asia, 16 cities in Europe, 17 cities in the USA, and Puerto Vallarta in Mexico. Hong Kong has been my favorite city of all those for a long time. Maybe I'm crazy. But the bustle, the food, the sea breeze, the mingling of Eastern and Western elements is so elegantly and matter-of-factly done, it's James Bondish. I don't know how much it's changed under mainland rule. I haven't been to Berlin, but I'm betting it is going to be one of my favorite cities. In the US, my favorite is definitely San Francisco, although I'm not crazy about some parts of the city. There are still a lot of cool cities I am going to visit. I am guessing I will like Istanbul and Seville. Visiting a city is, of course, different from living in it. Considerations for living in a place for me are population density, work/business culture, community, air pollution, visuals. Manila is too crowded to live in, although the social life is tops. Singapore is safe and convenient but probably boring and stifling. So far I have not seen Singapore on any one's list of favorite places.

Tokyo, Singapore, and Hong Kong. I'd also like to go to Seoul sometime. I would also add Yokohama, another nice city in Japan that tends to get overshadowed by Tokyo, and actually is part of the Tokyo Metro area, but still it's own city.
