Is it a joke?

It is one of the ugliest town in the middle of nowhere Texas. The terrain is flat and ugly. The weather is horrible with heat, storm, etc.

Somehow I doubt that many Saudis are making London their home. And greeting people with "sir" is what makes an area posh, really? 🤔🤔🤔

Rome, Nice, Toulouse, Porto, Lisbon, Barcelona, Madrid, Valencia, Athens, Palermo or Napoli. Big cities with amazing cuisines and relatively safe by world standards. Mild mediterranean climate that is comfortable for most of the year. Lots of history. Very walkable and urban. Great architecture. I dont know what more you could want

Other contenders that just missed out

Buenos Aires/Montevideo: A bit too expensive and the crime is higher than you would like

Los Angeles: Not walkable and too many ghettos

San Diego: Not walkable

Miami: Too many ghettos, unbearably humid

Sydney/Perth/Adelaide/Brisbane/Melbourne: Too suburban, no history, too disconnected with the rest of the world. Australian cuisine is questionable

Singapore/Hong Kong: Atrocious climate, too expensive, too competitive

Paris/Milan/NYC/Torino/Montreal/Toronto/London: The climate

All the fake news circling around that has become so popular.

I have to vouch for my city, San Diego. Weather is amazing and the city is very safe. Central San Diego is walkable. It's multi-cultural, you can find any type of cuisine here. The beach is 20 minutes away, the mountains are 20 minutes away, the dessert is like 30 minutes to an hour away.

The only downfall, it's expensive to live here.

Barcelona for me.
London ticks all the right boxes for "perfect city", save for weather and affordability. The latter simply represents supply and demand.

Cosmopolitan.
Rule of law.
First class legal and accountancy heritage.
Business environment.
Cultural powerhouse.
Retailer representation.
First class infrastructure and transit.
Dynamic and vibrant.
Beautiful to look at in the warmer seasons.

Osaka, Japan; Eeilat, Herzliya, Israel.

Honourable mention: without some groups of people - Dubai.
And if you can find solution for random toothpain or shopping - Vlas, Bulgaria wintertime.

San Jose: great weather, population, diversity, Silicon Valley, downtown, transportation, lots of attractions, good neighborhoods, sport facilities, beautiful and modern airport and good quality of life.

I live in Paris so outside of Paris and If I was rich, definitely Roma or Barcelona: rich, clean (not Swiss like but still clean), safe, amazing food, amazing history, amazing weather, everything to be an exceptional place to live in.
