2009 Top 25 Most Liveable Cities (from the July-August 09 issue of Monocle):
25. Lisbon
24. Geneva
23. Hamburg
22. Kyoto
21. Amsterdam
20. Auckland
19. Montreal
18. Singapore
17. Oslo
16. Fukuoka
15. Barcelona
14. Vancouver
13. Sydney
12. Madrid
11. Honolulu
10. Berlin
9. Melbourne
8. Paris
7. Vienna
6. Stockholm
5. Helsinki
4. Munich
3. Tokyo
2. Copenhagen
1. Zurich

Interesting. Honolulu is the only US city on the list...and London isn't even ranked (and Monocle is headquartered there).

I've lived in Tokyo from 1995 - 1997, and I can say the place has not lost its charm. I would have rated it #1.

I always dog the Zonies for repeatedly stating, every year, that Phoenix is either the #1 most livable city in the world, or, at least the USA. Well, regardless of what people told me the past week, I have yet to go on the "Instawebs" and find something updated. It seems like our propagandist news fell out of love with Phoenix after the housing crisis and are in love with places in Colorado.
