Next up is super-splendid Paris
It is the City of Light and love in every corner, but the things that gave it the title again this year are the reopening of Notre Dame, the 250 million euro renovation of Charles de Gaulle airport, the creation of sidewalks everywhere and of course the Olympic Games next summer.
The melting pot of peoples is New York
“The city is back,” reads the report, praising the renaissance of New York’s art scene, its many museums and, of course, the increase in greenery along its bustling streets.

The very modern Singapore

Amsterdam at night
