Let me put it this way, I'd never live in New Zealand no matter how good the quality of life there is.

Sydney is way overrated. I would rather live in Paris or a smaller Italian city.

Re: Cities with the world's best quality of living - Mercer Quality of Living Index 2

vienna is definitely a great and probably the place to live. the only big problem is the weather in the cold part of the year. it's been grey beyond redemption over past couple of weeks

the positive side is, the quality of life is so good that you earn enough money to go to sunny places for a week or 2 in the winter

Other than the weather, I highly doubt the vast majority of Americans would want to live in Honolulu. It's remote, extraordinarily expensive, and has extreme disparity between rich and poor. I don't know what the criteria are because I don't even think Honolulu has good public transportation which in my opinion is almost a prerequisite for a livable city. Hawaii does have a pretty good health system though.

Exactly why I'm surprised Honolulu is #1 US city in that list

Vancouver is a nice place to visit but must be hell on Earth is you aren't wealthy.

I woud rather live in Melbourne rather than Sydney.
Still both cities are hours away from anything else.

Re: Cities with the world's best quality of living - Mercer Quality of Living Index 2

Auckland - my second home I really miss Pizza Shapes, L&P, Perkynanas, good sushi, free entry to nightclubs, Giapo's ice cream Queen St, and warmer weather

Was in Sydney and since I don't have the body of an adonis I felt so self-conscious, if you aren't hot don't borher trying to live there it must kill people's self-confidence. Plus its expensive too.

Re: Cities with the world's best quality of living - Mercer Quality of Living Index 2

i wonder what nyc is...probably 50-60. i bet we'd move up 20 slots if people started discarding their trash in back alleys instead of front streets.

Auckland 3rd .

I'm not sure if I agree though...do these lists know about NZs horrible murder and child-abuse per capita rate?
