I would like everyones opinion on where they think the best places to live would be. I have lived in a few places myself but have not traveled extensively, so getting this information from others will be very helpful in my decision. Be sure to tell me why you think that place is the best.

Usually the best place to live is unsuitable to work, and the reverse. In my opinion, the best place to live is in Guilin or Qingdao or Dalian, and so on, in China.

It depends, of course, on what you want. My short list for retirement includes:

Penang, Malaysia
Panama City, Panama
Miraflores, Peru
Isla Mujeres, Mexico

The list keeps changing. Chiang Mai dropped off, Miraflores got added.

I thought it was Spain, but now that I've been retired here for a little while, I'm not so sure. I'm considering returning to the US.

There is no best place to live. I beleive that is is the best place suited to you and how you want to live your life. There are loads of popular places to live however you will not always enjoy yourselves there due to the fact that you have nothing in common with the place at all.

I agree that there no single best place to live, but instead a best place for you. And that best place can change over time. You may want a big city when you are young, or a relaxed rural area. Then when you reach retirement, you may prefer a place with lots of activities, museums, theater, etc. because you are going to have more free time. Five years later you may want a quiet place near a beach. I think it is a mistake to settle somewhere and think, 'This is it." It rarely is.

Default Whistler, BC Canada

I would have to say Whistler, BC would be the best place to live. The logic is as follows:

1) Activities like skiing, watersports, golfing, and a great night life.
2) Scenery - Everything from Mountain peaks to ocean, lakes and rivers.
3) Close to a major city port - Vancouver BC is 90 minutes away and has everything from sporting events to museums and other attractions. Plus it is a hub to the pacific rim and North America

I have traveled all around this world and that in my opinion is one of the best places to live.

That's just what I mean. You think a place that gets lots of snow is a good place to live. I think any place where it freezes is a bad place to live. I used to like winter, and now I hate it.
