Tokyo is not in the top 10 because of the decades long economic decline of Japan.

I love New York in a lot of ways, but between London and L.A. you can have pretty much everything. NY/LA would be too American and NY/London would be too cold & dense. Caribbean and Indian food in London, Mexican and East Asian food in L.A. Beaches in L.A., pubs in London. NBA in L.A., Premier League in London. You get the idea.
The only city I wouldn't consider is Dubai. The laws and cultural restrictions are not compatible with my lifestyle or world view.

No Paris? Seriously? Are you kidding me? Paris, man. Paris.

If I was filthy rich and unable to live in America, I would move to Sydney, Australia.

Yep, the lack of Paris is a serious oversight here.

Every time I visit Paris, I feel as if I could move there. It has everything you would want in a city. I would never live outside America (live, not travel), but Paris feels like a place I could move to and enjoy a wonderful quality of life.

As long as I had air conditioning.

As an American, LA and NYC. I'd put Stockholm as tied with these two though.

The South of France including Monaco has a lot of very wealthy individuals living there or with homes there, whilst areas of the Costa Del Sol in Spain such as Marbella, are well known haunts of the wealthy.

There are also lots of wealthy individuals in Europe's tax havens including parts of Switzerland, Luxembourg, Liechtenstein, Channel Islands etc, indeed anywhere the tax man has trouble taxing you is going to be popular.

There are also some areas that are wealthy that are not as well known such as Romazzino Hill in Sardinia.

Major cities such as NYC, London and Paris, are also very popular with the very wealthy, as are the extremely wealthy suburbs that surround them, which go beyond the normal wealthy areas that most cities enjoy.

In terms of London there are a lot of wealthy people in the stockbroker belt of the home countries that surround London, whilst the South Coast and areas such as Devon and Cornwall have some wealthy enclaves.

Germany is also home to a number of notable wealthy areas and enclaves.

Am I betraying my own home town of New York? I say this late in the 2000's Dubai UAE, and Stockholm Sweden. Around 2003-2017, NYC would be high up there. Also, still not too early. Los Angeles is kind of just a giant suburb, and NYC/London competition stress prices are fierce. Dubai, Stockholm are the most well grounded fair and relaxing ones out of these. And geographic coordinates give endless play to own surroundings just some hours away. Although, I have close to equal preference. Able to get away from any problems when abundant materialism is present.

Any exact specific reasons why Dubai is winning number one that far vastly superior in accordance of affordable luxury hotel rooms compared to the others that fall way behind with rooms accommodation? The others are expensive a lot less comfortable when wanting to visit stay over there.

Dubai is very rich. However, it is rather small, isolated and surrounded by desert areas. That to me makes it less desirable than New York City or London.

If someone is from South Asia, then Dubai is very convenient due to its proximity to South Asia and because there is such a large South Asian population in Dubai. You can get by speaking Urdu or Hindi literally anywhere in Dubai.
