Huh just because the air isn't on Beijing level doesn't mean it is bad?

No, just saying that all big cities have pollution isn't true, because there are plenty of big cities where the pollution is minimal, only **** cities have pollution problems.

Everywhere an awesome view.

Also very multicultural too.
Seriously. I'm NOT a city person at all, but the fact that nature was just a short walk/bus ride away prevented me from feeling trapped and encouraged me to move around and be active. And it's this sort of atmosphere that makes people nicer and happier (I know some people have said that Vancouverites are cold and unfriendly, but I found them to be quite the opposite). People aren't meant to sit indoors all day everyday with no greenery in sight; it's depressing and suffocating.

Tough one....
Barcelona seems a good call but I have not been there long enough to be sure...

I'd go with Hamburg, Copenhagen, NYC and Seoul.

Personally I get allergies from humidity so I prefer it dry.
Relative humidity is not an accurate way to measure moisture in the air.

That's the most accurate way to measure moisture in the air.

No offense, but I find Melbourne to be a boring place with poor infratructure/amenities relative to its population size if compared to other cities(that has a similar population) in the world. Its beaches and skiing(very little snow!) are also very subpar on a global level.

There is no such thing as a perfect city imo.


From the foreign (not Belgian/German) cities with a population of at least 300k i've visited, i would most like to live in...

1.Tokyo
2.Bangkok
3.New York City
4.Miami
5.Chiang Mai

6.Nakhon Ratchasima (only because my gf is from there plus its not that far from Bangkok)
7.Singapore (would be below London and Paris if it wasn't so close to Thailand)
8.London
9.Paris
10.Kuala Lumpur (would be above London and Paris if the majority was not muslim)

11.Atlanta
12.Lyon
13.Cartagena, Colombia
14.Antalya


From the cities i've not visited yet, i think San Francisco and Osaka would be among my favorites.
