The most exciting city in the world vs the world's most exciting city #1 (permalink) Sat Sep 15, 2012 22:06 pm   The most exciting city in the world vs the world's most exciting city
 

Hi,

Can I use the two following sentences interchangeably?

(i) London is one of the most exciting cities in the world.
(ii) London is one of the world's most exciting cities.

Many thanks in advance. Bye bye

I can't speak for 'all situations' but certainly a lot of them.
English is full of choices.
