Here is a lovely PowerPoint Presentation capturing just why these cities are
the happiest in the world. While you could probably predict three of the
top ten, I bet at least two of these places on this list were a surprise.

PowerPoint Presentation The World's Happiest Cities
Transcript of the World's Happiest Cities
Buenos Aires, Argentina Argentina's
largest city makes the cut in part for its relative proximity to the
first city on this list. "It's a slightly diluted version of Rio," says
Anholt. "I suspect people know far less about Buenos Aires than Rio.
They may not know it's in Argentina, but they know it's in Latin
Paris, France Paris, je t'aime! Most people
agree. "Paris is the most adored city on the planet," says Anholt.
"People think it's so beautiful, so lovely, it must be happy."
Rome, Italy Ancient history meets modern
sophistication in Rome, and the rest of the world loves it. "Generally
speaking, people associate Italy with being laid-back and stylish," says
Anholt. "People think the Italians are always happy, always in a party
San Francisco, U.S. The lone American
metropolis, San Francisco makes the list because it's perceived by
foreigners as the "most fun" of America's major cities.
Spain's capital and largest city
makes the list due to its vibrant culture and high standard of living.
That comes as something of a surprise to Anholt, considering the absence
of Italian cities like Milan. "It's interesting that the Spanish are
perceived as being happier than the Italians," he says. "I find the
Spanish rather gloomy."
Melbourne, Australia Australia's second
city is a major center for arts and education, but it makes the list
because it's part of a well-liked nation. "People know it's in
Australia, and that it's full of Australians," says Anholt. "Therefore,
it must be fun."
Amsterdam, Netherlands This historical
trading hub is now a chic metropolis--one where perceived happiness is
abundant, if herbally induced. "A lot of our respondents are young
people," says Anholt.
Barcelona, Spain Lively culture, warm
weather and one of the best soccer teams in the world are big draws for
Barcelona. Anholt calls it "the classic Mediterranean city."
Sydney, Australia Famous for friendly locals
and its iconic opera house, Sydney fared well in Anholt's survey because
of its association with a popular brand--Australia. "It's where
everybody would like to go," says Anholt. "There's this image of this
nation of people who basically sit around having barbecues."
