Wow ! And I did not want to go to NZ??

BTW, where is SA on this list, surely this great nation is in the top 10 - that's sort of what they keep telling us - how great we are. After all we have Table Mountain (which is a wonder now - "wonder if it's safe to visit it") and we had a world cup once, and we won some rugby games. This is outrageous. :boxing::censored: I demand better ratings, or I will toi-toi and burn some buses and loot a few shops.

All of these lists cannot measure or predict your personal happiness in a foreign city. Topics like climate, language and culture have profound impact yet are near impossible to measure... It's all subjective. There are happy and miserable people in every city on earth.

Show this list to a Philipino doctor or senior health and safety manager, who works at 7-11 in Vancouver because his degree isn't recognized and he is supporting his wife and 2 kids and he will laugh at you. Many foreigners work 2 or more part-time jobs because they can't find any full time work and that is very hard on their families. As all you electricians and nurses know, shift work is very tough on your families.

The best place to live is where you can find a decent job, afford a decent home in a good neighbourhood, have your kids educated in decent schools and become part of a decent, caring community.

As far as I am concerned, nothing else matters, and these lists put out, are pointless.

You just said it all Karen. What has a great city got to offer if qualified people can not cater for the well being of their family?
