Extremely wealthy you can afford do your own research through trial and error surely? Why confine to one place? The world is your oyster. Perhaps less pretentious cities would be a starter.

Los Angeles and maybe Dubai. I don’t want to report any income in California, though...taxes. Dubai is ridiculous for wealthy lifestyle, I don’t think they ever stop coming up with ways for you to spend your money, which substitutes for having a meh city to actually explore. LA and coastal California in general is my ideal climate, and since I like latinas, California’s the place were I to go womanizing. LA is so huge that you never run out of places to explore, and it’s close enough to my native Bay Area I could even split some time between the two.

London is tempting...I’d actually like to visit because I think I’d probably like it more if I popped over for a bit. I’m iffy on the climate and lifestyle though.

Stockholm? Doesn’t seem like a terribly interesting place to me. A bit homogenous and icky cold winter climate. I’d imagine taxes are awful too.

NYC is my least favorite on the list. Rude, awful place to own a car, dirty, provincial, gets too wintry for my tastes, and if I have so much money, it doesn’t offer any room to spread out, it’s just too suffocatingly crowded. I don’t even care to go back for a visit.

Do visit London.

When the pandemic is over, that is.

How the hell is the country/city with most millionaires as % in the world skipped (Monaco) and Stcokholm is included instead - a city of some 500k with limited brick/mortar shopping? The redneck right-wing bias of this forum never ceases to amaze me...


Not to mention Paris...even Tel Aviv/Herzlya is better fit than Stockholm, as is Macao.

I don't think the poll was meant to be an exhaustive list.

There are a lot of billionaires even in countries like Russia and India nowadays.

Fair nuff you have a point too, OP didn't say "these are the best, pick one!" but it seems like it...

I tend to stick to the given choices unless OP said otherwise.

Anyways on topic: I'm not "extremely wealthy" but I've used to live in Dubai some 9 years ago for an year (I feel old...) + visited London once my impression is that Dubai seems like the superior choice for as long as you prefer the whole beach/touristy atmosphere, it sort of feels like a cliche tourist trap. London is likely the better choice shopping-wise though and with arguably more things to do while Dubai is trying to compete in things where it fails miserably: aka "artificial ski mountain" or drinking only in hotels and bars.
