Paris has been named the most unfriendly city in the world, shortly followed by London in second place according to a survey byYouGov on behalf of DK Eyewitness Travel Guides.

More than a quarter (26%) of those questioned said London had the least friendly inhabitants while 29% said Parisians were worse. New York was voted the friendliest city, followed by Dublin and Amsterdam.

The survey was carried out to uncover views on world cities for the re-launch of the DK Eyewitness Travel Guides, and were revealed shortly after Boris Johnson unveiled his new ‘super agency’ to promote London to the UK and the rest of the world.

At the time, he said: “London is an extraordinary place of opportunity and without doubt the best big city to visit, study and invest in,” however this survey of over 2,000 British adults shows that visitors might be put off by the less than warm welcome.

What do you think to this? Has London been unfriendly when you’ve visited, or have you a story to the contrary?
