I'm biased as a Sydneysider but I think "The Rocks" or "Woolloomooloo" might be a better option than one that could just as easily be London.

Also a Sydneysider, I agree with The Rocks, or maybe Surry Hills

Yeah, King's Cross, London is probably much more famous around the world for its train station's being eminently featured in the Harry Potter books than King's Cross, Sydney is for anything else.

I sure guessed a lot of Chinese cities, but somehow missed the one it was. Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzen, Hongkong, Macau... and then others Singapore, Bangkok, Manila, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur. UGH! How could I forget that one completely?

So THAT's why they named it Gangnam style... *brain explodes*

Gangnam is very upper crust, so the song is all about mocking their snooty lifestyles. If they made a Mexican version of the song it would be called "La Fresa de Condesa" (Condesa is a really fancy part of Mexico City.)

The Venice version is very nice and a great place to visit, but the Jacksonville, FL one is more fun.

I got it because I went to college in Boston, but I had no idea it was famous (I don't really think it is). Copley, Southie, and a few others are much better-known.

I lived in Boston for 11 years and cannot imagine who would think Jamaica Plain is famous... or why. I agree there are soooo many other neighborhoods that would be considered more famous; including the ones already mentioned, there's Beacon Hill, Downtown Crossing, North End, Back Bay, South End, Financial District, Kenmore Square, and – although no longer extant – the Combat Zone.

I'm sorry to say my first guess for Temple Bar was Salt Lake City. Silly girl, I am.

The answers on that quiz pertain to each continent, tho. So Australia is the largest island in the region of Oceania, while Greenland is the largest worldwide.

There is also a Copacabana in Havana. If you want Brazil, the clue should be more specific.
