Vancouver is the world's best place to live, a survey by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has found.
The EIU ranked 127 cities in terms of personal risk, infrastructure and the availability of goods and services.
All the cities that fell into the top "liveability" bracket were based in Canada, Australia and Western Europe.
The worst places were Algiers in Algeria, and Port
Moresby in Papua New Guinea because "many aspects of daily life present
challenges", the EIU said.

Canadian cities scored well, as did Austria's Vienna and
Switzerland's Geneva, because they are not seen as targets for terror
attacks.

The main uncertainty for people living in those cities was climate-related, the EIU said.
"In the current global political climate, it is no
surprise that the most desirable destinations are those with the lower
perceived threat of terrorism," said Jon Copestake, editor of the EIU
report.
The survey has produced a mixed picture of the world's
cities. London was ranked in the 10th group, on a par with Dublin and
Los Angeles, but one place below Manchester, four behind Berlin, five
lower than Tokyo, and six off Helsinki, Frankfurt and Stockholm.

In Latin America, "no city manages to present ideal
living conditions, neither do any fall into the category where extreme
difficulties are faced", the EIU said.
Montevideo in Uruguay, Santiago in Chile and Buenos
Aires in Argentina offer the region's best conditions. Bogota in
Colombia and Caracas in Venezuela score the least favourably.
In Asia, cities in Japan, South Korea, Singapore, China and Taiwan all score well, as do Australia's main hubs.
Africa and the Middle East fare less well, with the EIU
citing concerns about terror attacks, and economic and political
instability.
Some of the worst performing cities include Harare in Zimbabwe and Lagos in Nigeria.

I think things like crime rates, pollution, cost of living are taken more into account rather than 'how exciting' it is to live there Wink

Having said that, when the UN does surveys about best countries to live in it's usually one of the Scandanavian countries like Norway, Sweden or Denmark, then Canada.
