    MAGNUS347 U on crack m8? The first thing you mention about London is that its vulnerable to a terrorist attack?! Like thats the first thing worth writing about in London???… Then you proceed to talk about cctv, which gets no mention in the Chinese cities which are in an actual surveillance state. Then you state that there is one airport in London, there are in fact 6 airports that service London, yes they are outside of city, like almost every city the airports are just outside, thats right, all 6 of them. Dubai isn’t a very busy city, if fact its actually very spread out with few traffic jams and a quiet public transport system, no idea why its on this list. Hong Kong, the most modern (been to Seoul?), Green (been to Copenhagen, Amsterdam, Scandinavia?), high tech (it still has neon lights everywhere?!). Rio de Janeiro isn’t on this list, try getting a taxi in rush hour in that city.

    Magnus maybe you should think about travelling a bit before becoming a travel journalist
