Re: Sydney house prices worse than London

Yeah Camberwell really isn't a nice area at all to live in and thus the house prices won't be all that reflective of other, more in-demand areas, where you'd be paying a heck of a lot more (try...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

This sort of anecdotal 'evidence' is pointless - just because you, personally, happen to know people in either country that do or don't have jobs really doesn't say anything about the overall...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

Although the comparative areas you're talking about are much smaller - the £25 travelcard allows you unlimited travel but only in zones 1 and 2, which extends about 6 miles from Picadilly Circus in...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

Haha, snap - I lived by Wandsworth Town train station for a few months, which I think was a stop after Putney. It was definitely the most stressful journey into work I've had in London. It really...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

Lol, maybe your idea of fun is different to others!! I used to live in Clapham and took the Northern line every day - it was so awful that, when I moved, I made sure I didn't live anywhere where I'd...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

Yes, I love London too, I've lived here for six yrs and have enjoyed (most of) it! But it does have an expiry date for some people (including me) and I think that mine is approaching...it's just...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

True although the focus of these rankings is not on 'where would individual people want to live' - it is to give companies a guide as to how much allowances (especially for 'hardship') they should...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

It's important to remember that this is only a snapshot of the full rankings and so only shows the top 50 cities, whereas the full survey ranks 420 cities in total. There are seven US cities in the...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

There is minimal difference. If you look at the top 10 cities, they only vary by 2.3 points.

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

It's interesting that Canada totally dominates the North American city rankings, far more so than the US cities - I'd definitely like to visit Vancouver! :thumbup:

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

Actually, Australia's done really well - six cities in the top 40 in the world, pretty impressive. And it's great that a big company like Mercer is recognising that as people (and companies) will...

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

Yes, sorry - I was referring to the comment that 'Europe' did better when actually it wasn't Europe as a whole but just two countries in Europe (as well as Vienna, which was number one!).

Re: Sydney and Melbourne in top 20 best cities in the world

So say Germany and Switzerland. Europe's a big place.

Re: cheapest way to fly: Sydney or Brisbane

Hiya. :)
My kneejerk reaction would be that Sydney would be cheaper to fly into, mainly because it's a bigger city and probably has more flights/airlines and thus more competition. However, you...
