Wellington: the world's 12th nicest city
A new survey published by Mercer Human Resource Consulting
rates Wellington as the 12th best city to live in, based on the quality of living offered to residents. Auckland comes in a very respectable 5th, with the rest of the top 12 filled out by Zurich, Geneva, Vancouver, Vienna, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Munich, Bern, Sydney and Copenhagen.
American cities don't get a show-in until Honolulu gets them off the mark at 27th (much to the delight of the Canadian press
, who aren't shy about pointing out their southern neighbours lower placings).
Can't say the presence of Dusseldorf and Bern in the top 10 fills us with a great deal of confidence in the accuracy of the survey, though.
