World's 10 Most Livable Cities Tough break, America By Michael Harthorne, Newser Staff Posted Jul 29, 2016 2:59 PM CDT 53 comments Comments (Shutterstock) (Newser) – Maybe Donald Trump is … right? Monocle just released its annual list of the 25 most livable cities in the world, and the first American city (Honolulu) doesn't even show up until number 23. Skift reports the rankings are based on things like architecture, safety, and public transportation. American cities regularly have a hard time cracking the top 20 due to problems in some of those exact categories. “We have focused on the pleasures of being up all hours, noting the places that still serve a good meal after [10pm] and have transport that keeps going throughout the night,” Monocle's editor-in-chief says. Here are the magazine's top 10 most livable cities: Tokyo, Japan Berlin, Germany Vienna, Austria Copenhagen, Denmark Munich, Germany Melbourne, Australia Fukuoka, Japan Sydney, Australia Kyoto, Japan Stockholm, Sweden See the full list here.
