Sydney has been named the second friendliest city worldwide, according to a survey undertaken by 128,000 Conde Nast readers. The annual survey asks travellers to rank a city’s friendliness in terms of where they feel most welcome, if a city was easy to navigate or if an outgoing local showed the way. Also ranked in the top five positions were Charleston (South Carolina), Dublin (Ireland), Queenstown (New Zealand) and Park City (Utah).
