    Last updated 19:58 21/02/2011

    Auckland has been named the 10th most liveable city in the world for the second year running.

    The Economist Intelligence Unit's annual liveability survey ranked 140 cities based on education, health care, infrastructure, culture and the environment, and stability.

    The top 10 cities were little changed this year, with only Melbourne moving up a rank, displacing Austrian capital Vienna capital to claim second place.

    Three other Australian cities also made the top 10.

    The Economist's top 10 most liveable cities:

    1. Vancouver, Canada

    2. Melbourne, Australia

    3. Vienna, Austria

    4. Toronto, Canada

    5. Calgary, Canada

    6. Helsinki, Finland

    7. Sydney, Australia

    8. Perth, Australia

    8. Adelaide, Australia

    10. Auckland, New Zealand

    The bottom 10:

    1. Harare, Zimbabwe

    2. Dhaka , Bangladesh

    3. Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea

    4. Lagos, Nigeria

    5. Algiers , Algeria

    6. Karachi, Pakistan

    7. Douala, Cameroon

    8. Tehran, Iran

    9. Dakar, Senegal

    10. Colombo, Sri Lanka

    Who came up with this list and Eskimo? Out of the top 6 all but Melbourne get very cold in winter and half are in Canada. I guess if you don't mind freezing your bottom off that's ok. I have been to every city in the top 10 but Helsinki and they all are nice places.

    I guess cold isn't one of my favorite things to live with since I have gotten older. But try this on, I used to wear short sleeves in winter without a coat when I was younger.
