New York City beat out beautiful cities in Brazil, Thailand, The Maldives and Italy to be the best… and was often referred to as the ‘Island of Magic’.  “The people in New York City are so kind and friendly and nice… they are the nicest people on the planet,” said a tourist from Germany.

Meanwhile, Los Angeles – which boasts beautiful landscapes, was voted the least friendly place on Earth.  “The people there are so rude and fake.  Very, very fake,” said a tourist from Denmark.  “They smile on the outside but they are nasty on the inside.”
