Late last week the travel website BIG 7 announced out of all the big cities in the world, the city of Vancouver was voted the, ‘Friendliest City.’ In the story it explains – in part- why this city was voted number one friendliest in the world by saying, “The city has an amazing multicultural community who band together to make visitors feel welcome and safe at all times. Locals are quick to offer assistance to tourists and the community vibe makes socializing in Vancouver simple.”
This is Vancouver were talking about.
I’m presuming in the downtown area but what do I know perhaps Surrey is involved in the conversation as well. That said, there’s really only one thing to say here – and it’s been said a lot on social media over the past few days.
“What are you smoking Big 7?’
Vancouver is friendly?
Now I’m not going to take shots at the city of Vancouver because we all have our stories and perhaps yours have been good ones, but I find it hard to believe that of all the cities in the world, Vancouver is number one?
Whta’s it like living in Houston Texas which was 19th on the list I wonder…
Top 20 friendliest cities in the world, according to Big 7 Travel:
#1 Vancouver, Canada
02 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
03 Bruges, Belgium
04 Taipei, Taiwan
05 Hamburg, Germany
06 Dublin, Ireland
07 Christchurch, New Zealand
08 Nashville, Tennessee, USA
09 Sao Paulo, Brazil

Vancouver: Friendliest city on the world!
Think a tweet from ‘gmdvancouver’ summed it up nicely when they tweeted these words.
“Maybe they mean Vancouver, Washington.”
