Well, it’s that time again. Last year we released our inaugural list of cities with the world’s most handsome men and our readers went crazy. This year’s ranking promises to be even better, as our travel writer has literally scoured the globe in search of the world’s best looking men. So without further ado, here is our list of the cities with the world’s hottest guys. As always, feel free to leave your comments below.
Fellas can take a look at our ranking of the Cities with the World’s Best Looking Women!
10. Dublin, Ireland
Originally a Viking city, Dublin isn’t short of hardy fellas to carry your sack of potatoes. Rugged, stubbled and mischievous, a cheeky Irish lad could be great fun to share a pint of Guinness. But brawn aside, they’re renowned for their sensitive side too. Just think about crooning Dublin boy band, Boyzone. And they ain’t too hard on the eyes either – yes, Colin Farrell, we’re talking about you.
9. Seoul, South Korea

Korean food, K-pop (Korean pop music) and K-drama (Korean television dramas) have taken the world by storm in recent years, catalyzing an appropriate fascination with the male stars of the genres. South Korean actor, Kwon Sang-woo, is one such hottie whose good looks and chiseled abs have not gone unnoticed. Part of the mom-zzang (slang for great body) movement, a spot of Googling will yield a good few shirtless pictures of this hunky star.
8. Cannes, France

Holiday home to the rich and famous, you’ll see plenty of TV-worthy bodies strolling down the city’s famous Promenade de la Croisette. Countless international celebs take to Cannes for their holidays to soak up the sun’s rays on impressive yachts. And the locals aren’t too bad either. Whatever the reason – be it the glitz and glamour of the celebrity imports, or Cannes’ ample annual sunshine – the locals more than compete with their superstar visitors in the hotness stakes.
7. Quezon City, Philippines
[Also see our travel articles on the Philippines]
Pristine beaches and sparkling waters make up this sprawling Asian archipelago. Picture-perfect islands numbering in the thousands draw in hoards of holidaymakers to the Philippines each year for fun in the sun. And with weather this hot it should come as little surprise that the men of Philippines have some head-turning beach bodies to match. Their reputed romantic side and gloriously tanned skin doesn’t hurt either. Just check out much-loved Filipino actor Dingdong Dantes. But though Quezon City is a few miles from the coast (it’s near Manila), it is the hometown of Dingdong Dantes and the hub for much of the Philippines’ entertainment industry, which gives credence to its nickname “City of the Stars.”
6. Freetown, Sierra Leone
The largest city in Sierra Leone, Freetown is home to hunky Mr. Africa International 2012 winner, Adonis O’Holi. Posed for his competition snaps with oiled up muscles that would make The Rock shake in his army boots, you can certainly see how he nabbed the title. And you know what they say: once you go to Freetown, you never go back. Or something like that.
