I'd like to add to it just because my dearest city has been beloved in this thread. 

 

1. Seoul - Affordable with all the benefits of living in a mega city. Fantastic transportation. Green spaces and parks, traditional architecture, highly advanced in technology.... If you know how to speak Korean and understand their culture, honestly, it's got it all. But again, ONLY if you know how to get around its very homogeneous culture.  

2. Amsterdam  

3. Calgary - It's cold. Snows too much. Boring blah blah....  But honestly, it's got such culturally diverse demographic profile. Upon the arrival of the Second Klondike Gold Rush - Petroleum, this oil city is reshaping not only physical but also cultural landscapes at the speed that'd be seen in Dubai or Abu Dhabi. 

I,too, would like to pick Rome for my honourable mention.

1)Cartagena, Colombia. I live here now, not my home country but it will always be home. But I guess I'm a little biased I look out my window and see palm trees and the ocean ...of coarse... you know if you like that sort of thing mixed in with Caribbean history, food, and culture. For me it's irresistible.)

2)New York, NY. Lived there for 4 years, loved it but 4 years was enough.

3)Rome, Italy. If I could relieve another time period in my life it would be in Rome!

I look to quality of life i.e. if I was living there how satisfying it would be, in which case:

1. Auckland - my home town. 10 years ago, would not have featured on any list, but as far as a city goes, it is pretty unique.

2. Melbourne, VIC - my former home town

3. Munich - I know its mostly a recreation, but as a cultural and living experience, I think its pretty spectacular.

1. Auckland

2. Edinburgh

3. San Francisco although not necessarily in this order, and very much influenced by the seasons -Edinburgh at Christmas is unmissable, San Francisco in the late summer is the closest you'll get to paradise and Auckland is just always fantastic.

Of the places I've been to (No particular order)

Hong Kong- excellent subway system, walkable, lots of places to shop and eat, urban and natural scenes are easy to reach.

London- love the culture, and like HK, easy to get to places and find places to shop and eat.

I also like Copenhagen, Vancouver, and Chicago. Architecture is excellent there.

Berlin 

Kazan

Yerevan

No partucalr order.  Berlin is a great city to feel the mix of European culture with the modern times. Yerevan surprised me with it's beautiful nature and national cuisine. Also, the last place where I was. https://onewaytour.com/ did an awesome job. Kazan is a good way to learn about muslim culture and Russian spirit at one place.
