Wow that thing in Dubai, the "Falconcity" thing seems strange, maybe even insulting to those places it replicates

sorry mate, you really think that dubai is (or will be) the most beautifull city in the world? are you kidding me? do you think these imitations of the rest of the world, these artificial islands, these shabby skycrapers and all these tacky things can compete with the architecture of old cities around the world?

by the way, i´ll show some pictures from madrid, which i think that is one of the most underestimated cities. hope you enjoy.

Seems some people are confusing the words 'Best' and 'Beautiful' ?

I'd say:
Hong Kong
San Diego(surprised noone has said this one yet)
Vancouver

I've never been to any of these places I'm judging simply on pictures. Sorry, but New York didn't make my list. I love the city, however, when I think of beauty I don't really think of New York. NY also didn't make the cut because I'm all about modern, bright cities. From what I've seen of the three above, they all seem to be very modern and upbeat feeling. New York has a century old feeling to it and I just can't get into the old musky aura I get when walking down the streets and looking at the boring concrete buildings.
Dubai would have also made it on the list, but I feel Dubai is more of a mask for what the UAE is all about. They say that their economy is no longer dominated by the oil trade while in reality, it still is. All this building and development for such a small, uninfluential country just screams "Cover Up!" to me. I hope I'm wrong I just feel the UAE is going a little overboard with their development and I won't be surprised if the UAE's economy takes a hit and the entire development boom crumbles, leaving these new places totally abandoned; I just have a bad feeling about the future of that city. Perhaps it is out of jealousy that such a beautiful modern city has yet to exist in the U.S., but even then, I still don't have a good feeling about the place.
