I'd assume he meant metro population under 1 million, being Australian, we measure most of our cities by metro population.


Here's some more of the Gold Coast, Australia

I think its Frankfurt (Quality) or Gold Coast (Quantity - quality also but not quite as Frankfurt) for me. Benidorm is just a mass of ugly highrises.

108.107?! What's in all those highrises then... Pigeons?
The town looks bigger. Or is it more like a buisinesstown...

Gold Coast has a very pretty skyline bytheway!

Balneario Camboriu, to my understanding, is a 'major beach resort city' with a metro population closer to 400,000. And the city population swells another 600,000 people in the summer.
