Holidaymakers surveyed said they loved ‘the Big Easy’ for its laid back nature, friendly locals, fusion cuisine and the ease of getting around. READ MORE: Train Holidays: 9 Gorgeous Trips For Slow Travel In 2020 Based on the Mississippi River, New Orleans also got a five-star rating for the quality of its attractions - which include live music and around the clock nightlife, as well as airboat rides in the bayou to spot alligators.Singapore and Sydney came in joint second place, both receiving an overall score of 87%. Singapore was one of only three cities to receive five stars for shopping. It also got five stars for ease of getting around and its food and drink.Meanwhile Sydney – best known for its iconic Opera House, yacht-studded harbour and famous Bondi beach – impressed with its attractions. Those surveyed added that it was easy to get around, with many also recommending the ferry to Manly and back for the best view of the city.

One respondent described the Californian city as “busy, dirty, smelly and dangerous”, and it was one of only three cities to receive just one star for ease of transport.Known for luxury shopping and ultramodern architecture, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates came in fourth lowest with a mediocre 62%. Those who visited said they didn’t think much of the food, didn’t think much of the attractions and thought it offered poor value for money. One respondent summed up the experience of the city as “bling and consumerism”.
