Name 10 of what YOU consider to be the most known cites in the world. (please do not look at a atlas, map, book etc) just write down the answers that come to your head, be interesting to see how frequent the same answers come up and if varies according to where you lived and also where you visited etc.

I'm guessing ( and am pretty sure) that the top two would be London and New York City.

The others, in no particular order,

Los Angeles
Sydney
Berlin
Paris
Bangkok
Tokyo

I don't really have any more answers, though there are many more that come to mind but i don't think they are that well-known (and I hope they stay that way actually!)

And now seriously. To be honost, these are awesome places, i give you that. But even Tehran comes not even close as being a cosmopolitan city.

Unbelievable that you missed out Amsterdam, Michael. Further we made almost the same list. except for San Francisco, I have Bangkok in place. And you have Rome instead of Amsterdam;).
