    Ha ha ha you must be joking!!! The 100 “Most Incredible Cities in the World”…Denarua Fiji??? Canberra, Darwin, Perth, Adelaide, Brisbane, Austin…what??? How about Jerusalem, birthplace of the World’s three main monotheistic religions? Or Valetta, Malta, a world heritage site, European City of Culture 2017 and probably the best preserved Medieval walled city in the World? This list is laughable.

      Hi Paul,
      Thanks for your feedback.
      We’re sorry to hear you feel that way about the results of the countdown.
      There were certainly a few surprises in the list as some cities performed better, and others worse, than we initially expected.
      However given the ‘100 Most Incredible Cities’ list was voted for by our readers, the results reflect precisely that.

      Warm regards,
      The IT Team
