The Best Places To Live.    [How does your city rank?] 

30 factors: Safety, healthcare, educational resources, infrastructure, environment etc. Winners: Adelaide, Zurich, Honolulu (really?), Singapore, Budapest. 

Some of the big movers are interesting. On the positive side: Harare, Bogota (!), Kathmandu, Dubai, Taipei. On the negative side: Damascus, Tripoli, Kiev, Caracas and a veritable who's who of crisis zones.

Personal surprises for me. Bratislava and Noumea (I don't know anything about both, need to!), how low New Delhi, that Kuala Lampur is so much higher than other places I would expect to be there, and that London dropped along with Vienna and Tokyo.

What are your surprises?  Data Source:
