Is London the best city in the world? Watch

    I find it quite difficult to call London an "English city", it is very much British. The melting of cultures and hotpot of languages all in one location mixes inside the saucapan of colour yet still sticks to its roots. Very historical yet somehow modernising itself into a city different from its past.

    London is both exciting and confusing yet makes sense at the same time.

    Just look at the mapping of the tube.

    Agreed London is great eventhough I've never been. I've heard good things.

    If there's any city on Earth which best encapsulates the human condition; its highs and its lows, its triumphs and its failures, its ability to destroy and its ability to rise from the ashes, then that city has to be Berlin.

    Berlin is a city of both ancient and recent history, city of unity and division, city which one spawned dread and which now creates hope. Berlin is humanity in a nutshell. That's why it's the best.
    Yeh, I love Berlin.

    Paris is prettier
    New York is more of a spectacle and more important financially
    San Francisco has a better location
    Los Angeles has more celebrities

    But overall it's not bad. I'd say it's up there as a whole package for living in. As a tourist, it's ****.

    Paris is only good for food and shopping, but it is a bland city



    New York, I agree, but it can get too hectic, but the city is losing its character



    San Fran has nice views, but you cannot explore the city without running into homeless people.



    Los Angeles can be hit and miss, I mean you fo to la to experience weather, but the tourist sections can be real shady.

    And do not forget the homeless people

    London can refer to either Greater London or the City of London. Which one do you mean?

    If we're comparing cities and boroughs, then Westminster is better from an American tourist's perspective. The reason is that it has almost everything Americans want to see when we go to London. Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and the Palace of Westminster.

    Many parts of Greater London are not necessarily good places to visit... you feel like you just walked down the wrong alley in New York and you instinctively worry about getting mugged.

    It's FAR from being the best or even in the top100.
