I know there isn't a city that represent everything we have on earth in terms of culture, architecture, languages ...etc but imagine you were a tour guide to an alien and could only show one city, which would it be? Remember he/she or it is going to have that city as a memory of what an earth city is.

Los Angeles.

Probably the best melting pot of cultures on the planet, not to mention Hollywood which emulates lots of other cultures around the world as well.

If there is one city that comes closest to representing the pinnacle of all human endeavors, then that's going to be New York, London or Tokyo.

New York looks like it could have been built by an advanced alien species anyway. So, that's a reasonable choice to showcase.

Wait until the aliens try a curry from the High Street. They wouldn't want to leave

I wouldn't show them any city. Cities are man-made. I would take them on a drive to the Smoky Mountains. Then drive them to the Outer Banks across our great state of North Carolina. The farms in Virginia would be our next trip. Who wants to see a dirty old city when there is so much to see that is natural?

Do you expect an alien to understand our architecture, culture and English language? Lol
