One of the main things we talk about with our friends and family when returning back from travelling is just how friendly the people were! (or weren’t). Unfortunately, this is usually something we look at in hindsight and never really consider when planning our trip.

These cities all rate above 8/10 for friendliness and are the most frequently rated on Hipsiti.com

Drum roll please…. all other cities of the world, the benchmark for friendliness is:
1. Lisbon 8.7
The friendliest of the friendliest! Lisbon is the stunning coastal capital city of Portugal. According to one of our members, locals in Lisbon speak around 4-5 languages!! This makes communication very easy, which is something we all look for when we’re in a new and unfamiliar place. Get set to chill, relax and enjoy a Portuguese tart with fellow tourists and locals. Whether or not you’ve been to Lisbon, if you’re thinking of going somewhere
with friendly people, you know the place to keep in mind.
