I would probably like Singapore, but I havent been yet.

Out of the cities I've been, it would be BGC (which is a city in Metro Manila, Philippines)

https://www.videoblocks.com/video/ta...gwqtcej1u2p5a7

It's clean, completely walkable, with so much to do and see on the street-level. You can see from this video how vibrant it is, with tons of people walking around


There's also green spaces all over the place, and lots of street murals and sculptures

Yes probably Key West, then maybe Kona, Hawaii. Then Cancun and Nassau.

This is probably one of the nicest parts of Metro Manila, but for those that are unfamiliar, it's not really a city so much as it is a district / neighborhood.

I usually associate tropical climate with an unhygienic environment but Honolulu makes an exemption out of the image. I've heard the island(Oahu) has significantly lower numbers of mosquitoes as long as stay nearby the populated area in the coast and venomous reptiles were practically nonexistent until the human brought them.

There are many exceptions to the "supposed rule" you state.

Funny that most on the American continent see France as rather unhygienic in some respects. The dirty Paris metro, people don't bathe and use perfume to mask their unpleasant odours, etc.

People from the Americas are some of the most hygienic conscious people on the planet. Bathing daily is a cultural norm and in some countries such as Brazil and Colombia bathing twice a day, food servers with masks and people eating certain "finger foods" with gloves are the norm.

eating chicken with gloves is abhorrent, I would never do that. Nobody does that in my family fortunately.


I bath 5 times a week or so. The climate of Bogota allows it.
