In his video, Binsky proved otherwise to his 1.5 million subscribers, ranking on the list of his top ten favorite cities before Berlin in , and right after Hanoi in Vietnam.

He has been to three times already and loves it. “It feels more like a European city than a Middle Eastern city,” he noted.

“You have stunning Mediterranean views, you have snow-capped mountains, you have all greenery. There’s no desert in ,” he added since many people who have never been to assume it has a desert.

“In the city, you just have the warmest and friendliest people,” he said, adding that he loves the cuisine.

“It’s funny to me when people think that or is unsafe, because it’s actually one of the safest places I’ve ever been in the world.”
