Voted for by international travellers and readers of Condé Nast’s über luxurious Traveller Magazine, this latest list highlights the cities of the world where people feel most welcome, and reveals those destinations where service most definitely does not come with a smile!

You may find a few surprises on this list, but according to well-heeled travellers, these are the friendliest cities in the world:

  1. Sydney, Australia

I would have to agree with numbers 1 – 3, but I’m not sure about the rest – what do you think?  I’m surprised that Nadi, Fiji didn’t make the list, I’ve yet to find anywhere with such friendly locals.
