Lucky you. One of the most beautiful cities on the planet IMO and the scenery around it is pretty world class too.

My vote went for Tokyo. That city never seizes to impress and amaze me. First of all, the advanced technology is impressive. The skyline is beautiful to look at especially at night with all the neon signs lit up. People are very friendly. It's very safe, especially for being one of the world's largest cities (actually the #1 largest MSA). It has a variety of unique neighborhoods such as Shinjuku, Yoyogi, Harajuku, Shibuya, Ropongi, Ginza, Ueno, Ikebukuro, and of course Central Tokyo. There's plenty of attractions and always something to do. It's a fun, exciting, world class city and I'm glad I live just a 45 min. train ride from it.

Me too. Maybe this list was from one of those tests that asks you to pick out the one answer that isn't in the same category as the others.

Comparatively, Paris is Dinky compared to Metro Tokyo, who's population is bigger then Canada. Other place are more high tech...not saying Paris sucks...but saying its not the best in everything... as every city.

Yes, but I fail to understand that. High tech, yes, but in what ? Give me an example of a city you see as high tech and why.
