    Melbourne is the world’s best cities to live in. The city Melbourne in Australia was ranked as the world's most livable city in 2011, competing with other 139 cities around the world in The Economist Intelligence Unit's survey.
    Australia had in total 4 cities in the top 10 liveable cities - Sydney at the 6th place, Perth and Adelaide in joint 8th place, according to the survey, which is conducted twice a year. “Australia, with a low population density and relatively low crime rates, continues to supply some of the world's most livable cities," survey editor Jon Copestake said, as quoted by Al Jazeera. "Despite the rising cost of living, driven by the strong Australian dollar, these cities offer a range of factors to make them highly attractive." London was ranked in the 53rd place, Paris came in at number 16 and New York got in the 56th place. Cities are scored on political and social stability, crime rates and access to quality health care. The survey also measures the diversity and standard of cultural events and the natural environment; education; and the standard of infrastructure, including public transport.
