What do you think is the most beautiful city in the world?
The most beautiful big city is Toronto. Especially at dusk, when the city lights come on.
toronto is fine, but it has no historical stuff!
Not a whole lot but it is very diverse and that adds to the beauty. I also thought of Black River, JA for the most beautiful "town"
have you been to Edinburgh? I guess not..Ive been to Toronto, Vancouver, Seattle, Leiden, London, Prague, Vienna, Innsbruck, Paris, Glsagow, Inverness, Luxembourg,
Prague is nice too...
Haven't been to Edinburgh either, or Toronto but cities I have been very impressed by include;
Sydney - the Harbour is beautiful
Prague - the river, bridges and the Castle behind
Krakow - the central square
San Francisco - when the mist lifts...
I think most cities have a redeeming feature or two - even London - here are some cityscape photos from other travelblog users. (and a few of mine) look for "forum code: [photo=xxxx]" when you click a photo to post in the forums like this.
Las Vegas by far!!!!
ok sorry, I'll recover from my fits of laughter in a moment.
> Las Vegas by far!
Oh - good call
- Vegas has a little bit of every city in the World. A mini Efiel Tower to Pyramids... all wrapped up in neon and money.
TRAVELSAPIEN would put Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada as the most beautiful Harbour City in the world. Sydney comes close but no cigar. Vancouver recently was given the 3rd place as most livable city in the world behind the Swiss contingent taking up #1 & #2.
Vancouver will have the 2010 Winter Olympics in conjuction with Whistler Mountain just 85 km away. Whistler has the longest downhill vertical in the world and some of the world's most expensive real estate. Vancouver also is noted for having some of the best food in the world. Many from Hong Kong say the Chinese food rivals anything from China as to quality, cleanliness and taste. Thai food follow with Sushi next. The wide cultural diversity offers up foods from everywhere. Vancouver also has a large movie making population with many stars sited in the streets regularily. No hype like Hollywood. They will talk with you readily and sign autographs. Of course there is also the fact Vancouver is noted for having some of the most beautiful home grown girls in the world. Many have found their way to centerfold Playboy over the years. Must be the water. Check Vancouver out at www.tourismvancouver.com. Nice.
I live in Vancouver but perhaps the most memorably beautiful city I've ever been in is Stockholm. The old city is wonderfully well preserved and there is water everywhere; I guess it's basically a series of connnected islands. When I went it was February and there was broken ice flowing down the rivers that had just melted. Truly magical.
My travel blog and photos
Hong Kong City is probbly the prettiest place I have ever seen. Its so picturisque because the city is blended in with the mountains. I was initially blown away by the contrast (of the sky scrapers being built in the mountain vallies).
how can a city of skyscrapers be beautiful?
makes me laugh!
give me Edinburgh, Prague or Vienna any day...
Rio de Janeiro is the most beautiful city I have ever seen - Paris isn't bad either, but Rio leaves everything else standing!
Now for some shameless self-promotion - Our Rio article with pictures
Paris, the city of lights!
Nice..but a little too busy! too much to see in such a short time!
and ive been to all cities here apart from Rio!!!
Most Beautiful City?
Venice - The city has a dreamlike beauty, also I met one of my closest of friends in this city.
Sydney - The architecture and the people make this city shine!
San Francisco - The Golden Gate Bridge, Irish coffee at the Buena Vista and good friends are the highlights of this fantatstic town.
Philadelphia - Why? I call this town home.
Innsbruck - Striking mountain vistas surrounding this city.
Vegas - Oh My God! Good friends, good memories, and a minature Eiffel Tower!
If you want to be impressed, visit tokyo. Thats a world class city.
