I'm half Singaporean and have lived in the United States for majority of my life.

What I want out of a city is that it's a global and international place. Honestly, that's all I care for that most. In the United States that leaves me to New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Washington DC, and Miami. Of those I wouldn't mind living in San Francisco, Washington DC (already do), Chicago, and New York. Those are my types of cities.

Cities like Boston, Houston, Atlanta, Dallas, Philadelphia, Seattle, Detroit, and Minneapolis are just regional/national/domestic. They have some international aspects to them but overall they're mostly on the US radar rather than the world. Doesn't mean they're bad cities though but they've got a while to go.

Other cities in the world that I wouldn't mind living in are Buenos Aires, Melbourne, London, Toronto, Vancouver, Hong Kong, Frankfurt, Rio de Janeiro, Seoul, and Paris. Maybe Shenzen. That would be all.

Overall for the one I want to live in the most, it's going to have to come out to either London or New York.

That means spending your senior years there, too, and most people want to quit the "rat race" in NYC before that.

Stockholm.
Or rather a house in one of the suburbs south of the city, then I can have quiet small town living with the big city just a fifteen minute subway ride away.

In the USA (where I live): Albuquerque, NM (decent economy with great weather year round and beautiful mountains all around). Outside of the USA: This is tougher, but I will go with Barcelona, Spain. Great weather, activities, but the economy is troublesome (at the moment). Between the 2 - I will go with ABQ.

I'd go back to Ottawa ON because I love the people there. If I have to stay stateside, then I would go back to near Knoxville, TN where the weather is great, the people are great and I love the atmosphere for living.

Miss home!!!! Both those places are home to me! JMO
