I’d probably rather live in Melbourne due to it being perhaps more culturally familiar. I find Tel Aviv and it’s surrounding area to be more fascinating for a visitor than Melbourne, though I do like both.

Melbourne for basically all categories except I would rather visit Tel Aviv not for the city but due to seeing all of Israel and the historic mecca of Jerusalem. Melbourne biggest problem is that it is in the middle of no where.

Melbourne is not the middle of nowhere. I have been to Melbourne and I not encountered anyone from there that believed that it the middle of nowhere. In fact, it was not unusual for people there to see it at the centre of things. After all Melbourne in the last few years has been labelled the most livable city in the world.

I haven't been to Tel Aviv but I loved Melbourne The climate and beaches are most likely better in Tel Aviv and it would be fine to go there on vacation but for day to day living, Melbourne hands down.

Ditto for me.

Safer too...Tel Aviv is too close to nearby danger zones.

I have lived in Melbourne, its a very nice city but too overrated to call it “ the the most liveable city in the world” I am going to vote for Tel Avi because the climate seems better, is closer to Europe and I find it more interesting. I will go one day!

Tel Aviv is more interesting culturally and historically as well as being close to historic Jerusalem.

I've been to both cities.

Downtown - I liked Melbourne's downtown better. Very dense and just cool. That being said, I really liked Tel Aviv's as well.

Climate...both are fine.

Friendliness....Melbourne. Only because it's easier in English. Israelis are kind of like New Yorkers - very to-the-point about things. But, I also liked that as well.

Food - both are great. Melbourne is more Italian and Asian and international....while Tel Aviv is more Israeli, Arabic, Middle Eastern, and plenty of international as well - pizza places, etc. - in some ways Tel Aviv feels like New York at the beach.

Beaches - 100% Tel Aviv. Melbourne has beaches too, but Tel Aviv's are rated as some of the 'sexiest' in the world, up there with Rio de Jainero.

Economy - not sure...both are expensive cities though. I'll assume the economy must be good in both places.

Scenery - not sure....just different....Melbourne is quite flat and boring with a ton of suburbs to try to get through, but once you get through them, the coastline is beautiful. Tel Aviv is in a small country where it takes very litttle time to get anywhere really different, and you have an entire country with a ton of very different vibes everywhere.

to visit - I'd go back to Tel Aviv in a heartbeat...especially when you combine it with all the rest in Israel.

to live - probably Melbourne...as Australia is more of an immigration country...and in a secure region.
