    "Standing at #4 is Auckland. There is a tie between Vancouver and Auckland as both the cities have a Mercer score of 107.4. New Zealandís most beautiful and biggest city, Auckland has breathtaking scenery, beautiful beaches, idyllic holiday islands, outstanding food and wine, great shopping and exciting nightlife. Auckland has a warm-temperate climate, with warm, humid summers and mild, damp winters. The city has a population of 1.18 million and an average life expectancy at birth of 80.24 years. GDP of New Zealand is $119.549 billion"

    In my own view, "great shopping and exciting nightlife" is perhaps taking it a bit too far......

    What emerges clearly from this study is that obviously, German is the language to learn, spoken in 6 of the top 10

    My son wants to move to Auckland so he can go on the crazy zip line in the big park opposite the beach near K Tarlton. Not exactly scintillating night life for us as a big priority but ace swing parks. cf. Island Bay. Personally (don't mug me) I though Welly was more beautiful.

    But this measures perception of, not the actual presence or absence of corruption?
