Okay in no real order, just places I have lived, spent a lot of time...

Los Angeles - born and raised, no other city can match the weather, traffic or shear fakeness/humor of it

Bangkok - lived there two years and go back every couple of months... beauty and grim all rolled into one, and the best street food around

Tokyo - madness, madness, madness... oh and lots of fun and style to boot

Copenhagen - probably the most civil/out of control city around... good design, crazy extremes, like a disney city on speed

Hey so its not ten, but places i could be happy in... and so could you!

> New York [Art, art, more art]

> London [best city in Europe, by far. but expensive!]

> Madrid [if you don't value your sleep, relatively cheap cost of living a plus]

> Chicago [Midwestern America may be boring, but it is never dull]

> Buenos Aires [it's as if Paris suddenly moved to the backwaters of So America]

> Barcelona [Gaudi+]

> Boston [if you find spoiled college students amusing, I do anyways]

> Washington [singles scene is good, despite everything else needed to make it a world class city is missing]

> Louisville, KY [not exactly a world class city, but it has a certain southern charm. Kentucky Derby!]

> Cordoba [for romance]

Not exactly a thorough list, since I've never really been to Asia or points on the west coast.
