A list of the world's friendliest cities has been released, with one South African location making it into the top 15.
Travel + Leisure has released its list of the world's friendliest cities according to its well-travelled readers.
South Africa makes an appearance on the list - with Cape Town being rated as one of the world's most friendly cities.
Cape Town landed spot 11 on the list.
" Few places offer the traveler the chance to browse amazing boutiques (pick up a pair of silk-and-leather sandals at Woodstock’s Neighborgoods Market), take an exotic safari, and indulge at a stylish new restaurant (try Seelan for duck with Mozambican spices) all in one weekend," the magazine said.
"Cape Town gets a gold star for its warm, welcoming people, too."
But what is the world's friendliest city?
Coming out on top is Galway in Ireland.
"Galway won readers' hearts with its festive nature, lively population, and musicality. Fiddlers and banjo-players, flautists and whistlers bang out traditional Irish reels on pedestrian streets and in all the pubs," T+L said.
Irish cities featured heavily in the top five friendliest cities, claiming three of the spots.
In the top 15, the USA also featured significantly - a strange coincidence considering they also claimed many of the spots in the world's least friendly cities list.
