Christchurch named seventh friendliest city in the world

First it was the Kiwi accent that got the rest of the world excited, but now Christchurch has been named the seventh most friendly city in the world.

The "50 friendliest cities" list was created by Big 7 Travel - the same site that bestowed on New Zealand the honour of having the sexiest accent in the world.

Christchurch was the only New Zealand city to make the current list.

Canada's Vancouver topped the list, followed by Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia and Bruges in Belgium.
