London? Attractive? Amazing, yes, but attractive? Yecch!London was crowned the most attractive city in the world for the first time, knocking New York off the top spot.
Paris fell five notches behind the British capital, ranking sixth
The bolded line says it all. I wonder where the majority of PWC staff are based, but I suspect most probably in London.Cities are ranked for cost, demographics, ease of doing business, health and safety, economic clout, as well as transport based on research from World Bank and International Monetary Fund, as well as a survey of PricewaterhouseCoopers staff
Different surveys .... Different results. I also saw one recently that had Canberra as the most livable city in the world! This one seems to only surveyed the too 30 "global cities", so by definition would exclude Melbourne, Vancouver and other cities that usually come out towards the top of the livable cities list.I thought Melbourne is in the first place for a few consecutive years now.
Anyway, as long as the no.1 city is from Australia it's all good
Have Opal, will commute!If we got rid of all the cyclists and the mayor who wears the dog collar (can't remember her name) I believe it would be even more liveable!
Note *you can probably tell I've just driven to work.
Same for me. Oftentimes it's bus and train. Have driven to work (in the city) three times in six months.Have Opal, will commute!
With all the bus lanes and priority lights in place, my daily bus trip is actually quite reliable and consistent. Let's me catch up on lots of reading too.
Why? Beats driving in most Australian cities.
I too enjoy the views of the city, from the bus lane at 8am on a wed morning, in a taxi. But this is offset byA few months ago I drove from Belmore to Northbridge via West City Link ~25-30 minutes before sunrise. One of the best drives I have ever been involved in. The view of the city was spectacular. I won't forget it that easily.
