They obviously haven't taken the cost of living into account much, haha.

I've never seen the term liveable before. What does it mean?

In this particular survey, "livability" score was apparently calculated by ranking each city a total score out of 100 for stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure. Worth mentioning: the final report is sold to corporations so they can decide on extra pay levels for executives who move abroad.

Hamburg is a nice and very accessible city, and less expensive compared to most other big cities in Western Europe and the rest of the World. Well at least it used to be, no idea how it is now.

I mean Vancouver is similar in that regard too, hence why alot of people like me live in suburbs. Im like an hour an change outside of it. The sad part about these cities is the locals get priced out of living there quite frequently.

Toronto as one of the most livable citiesxD Please someone spare me! This place is more expensive and more shit by the day. The most hilarious thing is that the TTC was awarded best transit system in North America in 2016 when it has some of the highest prices and shittest service on the entire fucking continent. There's skyrocketing poverty and homelessness rates, food bank use rises drastically every year, we have one of the highest child poverty rates, meanwhile the city and province spends its money on a giant rubber duck to float in the harbour. Rental prices are through the roof since all they want to do is make condos for foreign investors (usually east Asian or middle eastern) to buy to make it seem like people are actually buying the units. Its one of the most shittest and boring cities in the continent frankly. Funny to see Vancouver up there too when they got similar problems with the housing/rental market. Both cities will get what's coming to them when that housing bubble bursts.

didn't know the definition of liveable was 'boring and full of detestable yuppies and middle class bores'

Astonishing to think melbourne tops a list like this. It's so fucking expensive here. Surely affordability has got to be a huge part of the equation. They obviously don't weight that one highly enough.

in the end this just boils down to city marketing. the real 10 most liveable cities will be places nobody has heard of, because the metropolis is universally awful

All those surveys are just designed to help multinational corporations determine what kind of relocation package they will offer to their expat workforce, it has little to no meaning beyond that context.

All the real hurt seems to be from people who actually live or grew up in places on the list xD

It would be interesting to see a proper list of most expensive cities to live in.

Sydney is amazing, from the botanic gardens to the Opera House and Bridge, The Rocks, Darling Harbour, Manly, Palm Beach, Bondi and the Eastern suburbs to Surry Hills and Newtown.

Literally class and has just about everything you want from a city from class beaches, great weather, a million things to do around the city and the landmarks that go with it.

Got better beaches here and less people. So I'm alright. We don't really have any landmarks. But that's no great loss!

I just dig Melbourne's vibe more.

But you can't live in Perth and Melbourne at the same time...just think Sydney is the perfect mix of everything

The difference between Sydney and melbourne is similar to Los Angeles and New York.

One has the weather. The other has the vibe. In this case the weather city also has the landmarks

Sydney is a stunning city for tourism but it's far more expensive, traffic is the worst and its road layout is worse still. The people are different too. More pretentious but less cultured and sophisticated.

I'd say it's not many Asian countries, but rather most of Asian metropolis. 

It just pisses me off that barely any of those rankings reveal the factors they use to rate the cities.
