CNN Travel recently published results of the The Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) Liveability Survey. Since this is a subsidiary of The Economist the results tends to be skewed towards the English speaking world. But still, it's usually a good indication where in the world you can go without any travel hassle.
Also keep in mind that most of these cities come with a high price tag. Australia especially has become very expensive in the last decade.
No US city made it into the TOP 10.
10 most liveable cities
2. Vienna, Austria
3. Vancouver, British Columbia
5. Adelaide, Australia & Calgary, Alberta
8. Helsinki, Finland
9. Perth, Australia
10. Auckland, New Zealand
10 least liveable cities
131. Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire
132. Tripoli, Libya
133. Douala, Cameroon
134. Harare, Zimbabwe
135. Algiers, Algeria
136. Karachi, Pakistan
137. Lagos, Nigeria
138. Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
139. Dhaka, Bangladesh
140. Damascus, Syria
All of these are places that need a lot of research before you should consider going. Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire has been recommended to me a couple of times – not sure if it deserves near last place!
