I never travelled to USA and Canada for evaluating the cities there.
There are no sharia-ruled neighbourhoods in London! Or anywhere else in the UK for that matter! This isn't the first time I've heard this, lord knows why.

Exactly.

As for London's Skyscrapers they are mainly concentrated around clusters relating to the two financial districts of the City of London and Canary Wharf rather than the traditional West End which Tourists have traditionally frequented.

The City is a square mile that is right beside the East End of London, whilst Canary Wharf is in the middle of the East End and is built on the site of the Old East End Docks which are well away from London's tourist and entertainment districts.

College Station, TX is awesome.

Geographically, it's close to DFW, Austin-San Antonio and Houston. It's basically in the center of the triangle.

Natural disasters like earthquake and tornado do not exist at all.

Safe neighborhoods, vibrant community, great food, ample parking, clean air, the list goes on and on.

Maybe.
UK is far from us, and except for the facts with international impact like the Brexit, we know little about it.
It's therefore difficult to know what is real or what is merely sensationalism. By the way, I'm happy that these news about sharia-ruled areas in London are fake.

Only people who have no idea what they're talking about refer to it as Londonistan.

Isn't known for nothing???? If you are trying to say what you think you are trying to say then I would like to point out that I have never, ever heard of that term. London is perhaps the most cosmopolitan city in the world, or at least one of the most, there is just about every race, nationality and religion represented, it has people with roots from across the globe living shoulder to shoulder if you think its a city of nothing but Asian muslims you are VERY much mistaken.

I'd say either Barcelona, or maybe Lisbon. Warm, laid back, appreciative of arts and music, and buzzing with activity.

No real criteria for this thread. I want to hear from each individual person on their thoughts on their idea of the world's most perfect city, if they believe perfection does not exist, then the city they feel comes the closest to their idea of a perfect city.
