Melbourne has tied with Auckland in a Conde Nast Traveler survey of the world’s friendliest – and unfriendliest – cities. Sydney was close behind in fifth place, tying with Dublin.

‘Capital of cool’ Melbourne shared the top spot for being one of ‘the classiest cities in the world’, full of great nightlife, food, and public spaces.

The high-end travel magazine said Sydney was ‘the most beautiful large city in the world’ full of helpful locals who ‘love Americans’.
