Which climate of the Alpha+ World cities listed below do you prefer?

London, UK (Cfb)
New York City, USA (Cfa/Dfa)
Hong Kong (Cfa)
Tokyo, Japan (Cfa)
Sydney, Australia (Cfa)
Dubai, UAE (BWh)
Singapore (Af)

NOTE: I have a left out a couple of global cities because their climates are already somewhat similar to some listed here (Paris to London, Shanghai to Hong Kong, Chicago to NYC, Shanghai to Tokyo). I wanted this poll to have cities with distinct climates.

Sydney

All of them could stand to use some improvements but Sydney as well as London are the most mild so those are my top two choices. I like seasonality but I'd prefer something like Canberra or Denver as opposed to NYC or Tokyo in the end. At least the winters in Dubai don't look too bad...

Sydney, easily. Tropical climates or hot subtropical ones like Hong Kong as unliveable, Dubai is brutally hot and even humid during summer, ugh. Tokyo has far too hot summers for my liking, New York contains a lot of wet snow, humid summers and unpleasant winters, whereas London is okay, but a little bit too cold in winter (4-5 C).

Sydney by a mile.

Sydney #1.

Chicago's climate is horrendous. It deserves its own entry just so everyone can vote it last!
