Definitely. The extreme rich will have multiple abodes, probably in more than one of the cities listed.

My choices would be:

1. NYC
2. SF
3. HK
4. Maybe Sydney

The rest would be cool too, but those are the cities that really stick out to me.

Would probably get a home on the Posillipo hills of Napoli, i prefer home comfort. Of course, i would spend several months travelling back and forth but that's the place where i would choose to make a living given that food is cheap and to die for, the city is cheap for Italian standards on the whole, it offers much in the way of entertainment, ecc.

Nowadays, what extremely rich people do is have multiple investment properties in New York, London, LA, Hong Kong, etc., while they spend most of their time living in some place that most people have never heard of.

Clearly you've never lived 'right on the beach near LA'

There are things money cannot buy right on the beach in an egalitarian society. Some wealthy folks have tried and failed.

My number one choice isn't listed and that's Honolulu because of its climate, beautiful scenery, clean air, and heavy Asian influence. Out of the choices listed, it would be LA. Sydney is great too and would be my second choice on the list.

I agree with the first part, but doubt most superwealthy generally "spend most of their time living in some place most people have never heard of". They tend to live in very prominent places, not Medicine Hat or Walla Walla. The New Yorks, Londons, LAs of the world, generally.

What about Bellevue, WA?

Hong Kong and Dubai - been to both and liked it. Haven't been to the rest but they seem like some sort of Nazi experiment to me rather than a place good for foreigners. Even Tokyo is known as xenophobic (read somewhere of signs on shops that forbid people who don't speak Japanese to enter...), imagine the other cities.

Especially London, still happy and can't believe the 'Inselaffe' left the EU.
