According to the Anholt-GfK Roper City Brands Index poll, most travellers (10,000 travellers were polled in the survey) consider Sydney to be the world’s friendliest city and the world’s second best travel destination.
Here is why:
The poll looked at the following:
The friendliness and cultural diversity of its people (Sydney topped the poll in this category), the cleanliness, aesthetic qualities and climate (again, Sydney topped the list), and the affordability of accommodations and quality of public amenities (again, Sydney did well in this section of the poll).
Paris came top of the poll.
The rationale given by prospective migrants who view Australian cities as offering a better quality of life than British cities appears to have been vindicated by a recent British study. Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Adelaide and Brisbane have all been named in the top 20 Cities in the World to live in according to the most recent Liveability Survey conducted by the publishers of the Economist.
Taking into account stability, health care, environment, infrastructure, education and culture, the annual survey assesses 140 cities worldwide and gives each city a final rating out of 100.
Auckland and Wellington came in 12th and 23rd respectively. Only two British Cities made the list of 140; Manchester and London. But both were well outside the top twenty.
