If money was no object, I would live right on the Beach near LA given the choices on this list.

From the list I voted for Sydney.

But I think I wouldn't live in any of then. I would live in Rio, have a mansion in Buzios and in Itacoatiara and travel a lot.

I feel like their demographic time-bomb has already exploded and it has already hurt Japan's economy. The next bombs in line are its neighbours'... aka Korea and Taiwan's.

I'd choose Paris or Tokyo. American cities are all pretty undesirable imo, I absolutely hate London, Hong Kong is a terrible place to live, and Dubai is in an Islamic state that practices sharia law, and it's in a ****ing desert.

Sydney seems really nice as well but it's pretty car-dependent and I'd hate to drive, that factor rules it out for me.

From a climate perspective none of the above. Dubai is blazing hot. LA gets really hot in the summer. San Francisco is chilly and foggy oftentimes. Other places have cold snowy winters. Even if I was wealthy I'd stay right here in San Diego and the Mediterranean climate.

Coastal LA, aka where the rich people live, doesn't get hot at all. You don't even need air conditioning.

It gets hot, even in costal LA. I have recently moved to Santa Monica from downtown and there are still hot days. Also, most wealthy people in LA county do not live on the coast, many live in the hills where it can get very hot. Anyway back to the question, I would buy a townhouse in NYC no questions asked.

If you're extremely wealthy, you'd probably live part time in various places, no?

I wouldn't live in a huge city if I didn't need employment.

Seattle is heaven in summer, but I prefer San Juan islands.
