My commute to work used to involve a 20minute walk from Charing Cross station to Regent Street, via Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly Circus. Every day it gave me a little thrill.

#4 Montreal – super walkable, a ton to do and a very different feel for those of us nearby in the states.

#5 Singapore for sure. No words for how impressed I was, being a native of Northern California. The airport’s freaking fantastic. Always gonna try to book international flights with one stop there.

#6 Bruges. Really like the alcoves.

#7 Porto, Portugal. My brother and I were staying in a hostel there and by chance without us knowing it was Festa de São João do Porto.
We just went around the city drinking and hitting strangers with inflatable hammers making friends of all ages and nationalities. It was incredible!

#8 Lisbon, Portugal. Went there last September and fell in love with the city and its surroundings, only negative side was that we had to leave and come home!

One of the greatest experiences of my life was doing a full day food tour in Istanbul. My god it was absolutely amazing.

#10 Hong Kong circa 2016 was an absolutely wild time. You could relax on a beach, go hiking on another tropical island, party at nightclubs in LKF, take a gondola up to Victoria Peak, and meet with business associates for a Michelin star dinner in a single day.

And you could spend the next day at night markets, eating amazing food at a sleepy seaside village and chilling in bookstores or exploring the under city by the subway stations. The entire city was easy to travel on the best subway system the world has ever seen.

I know Tokyo is gonna be at the top. As it should be. But what people in this thread don’t realize is that Hong Kong in the mid 2010’s had everything Tokyo had plus tropical beaches and incredible hiking/outdoor activities. With even better mass transit (as crazy as that sounds).

It really was the world’s first S Tier city in my honest opinion.

#11 Prague.

I was so pleasantly surprised. Went there this summer as the middle leg of a road trip. Thought “this is my kind of place”.

It’s way more than smoking weed. Coming from a guy who really doesn’t react well to weed at all.

#13 flapjaxrfun said: Barcelona.

This is WAY TO LOW!

I’ve travelled a lot but nothing compares to Barcelona IMO. The people, the city design, the Vibe.

I love it so much.

#14 Honestly NYC. Some people find it hard to admit that it’s an incredible city and I don’t understand why. It’s not perfect but there really is no where else like it.

#15 I love Wellington, NZ. Lots to do, lots to eat, and you can walk to most anywhere (or a short uber trip with zero waiting). It’s my favourite getaway, but I wouldn’t want to live there. In Australia, I could live in Port Douglas.

Was looking for this. A very underrated city but freaking magical.

Everywhere you look is an orgasm to the eyes, lol. But I’d understand why it hasn’t been mentioned much. It’s so pricy and the weather is, well, brutally Scottish.

#17 Visited Vienna, and never left. Best place on earth.

#18 Copenhagen for a larger city. Castelrotto for a smaller one.

Fellow Krakow fan!! It’s just beautiful, the people are great, food is great, so walkable. If I won the lottery I would buy a little bolthole on the main square and watch the trumpeter every day.

#20 Break-Every said: Tokyo.

ZardozSama added:

Largest metro population on earth and amazingly clean and safe feeling for an average person walking down the street. If you try to go by strictly objective and measurable bits, it would be difficult to identify a city that exceeds the standards set by Tokyo.


#21 Florence. I would move there tomorrow.

#22 Granada, Spain. The architecture, the food (which comes free with your beer at any bar) and the people are amazing.

#23 In the US. Chicago

Has large, grandiose vibes while still being incredibly accessible.

Food is great, public transportation was amazing when I was there, had a unique culture.

The cityscape was absolutely gorgeous as well.

It is the quintessential “city” — like what I imagined in my head growing up.

#24 Berlin was great. Lots of history, art and great food.

I prefer San Diego to LA. Much more relaxed, lower prices, nicer people, and less busy.

The beaches in the surrounding area were also great enough compared to LA.

Shanilou Perera

Shanilou has always loved reading and learning about the world we live in. While she enjoys fictional books and stories just as much, since childhood she was especially fascinated by encyclopaedias and strangely enough, self-help books. As a kid, she spent most of her time consuming as much knowledge as she could get her hands on and could always be found at the library. Now, she still enjoys finding out about all the amazing things that surround us in our day-to-day lives and is blessed to be able to write about them to share with the whole world as a profession.
