Hunter Exam Arc
Zoldyck Family Arc
Heavens Arena Arc
Yorknew City Arc
Greed Island Arc
Chimera Ant Arc
13th Hunter Chairman Election Arc
Dark Continent Expedition Arc (Pending)
You're making me choose one? Nooooooooooo.
They're all part of a larger, awesome story arc highlighting the journey of a young, ambitious lad searching for his neglectful father. So I'll say all of them.
There is a same thread but there are more options in this one including 13th hunter chairman election, dark continent and UNDECIDED
I personally voted for 13th Hunter Chairman Election Arc
the old thread doesn't have that
Yorknew City Arc and Chimera Ant Arc
Yorknew City Arc
My personal favs in order from most to least fav arcs. They're all awesome though, obviously !
13th Chairman Election
1. Chimera Ant
3. 13th Chairman Election/Greed Island
4. Heavens Arena
5. Hunter Exam
6. Zoldyck Family
Don't get me wrong though, I love every arc in Hunter x Hunter.

Chimera Ants all the way. The longest, most well thought, most nen-centric, and with the best character development so far.
Yorkshin and chimera ant, but I love all of the arcs! Wish to see the main 4 together again in a future arc..
Tie between Greed Island and Chimera Ants arc. I voted Greed Island because I think it is overall better paced than the Ant arc which sags a little in the middle.
Election Arc was AWESOME. I loved it trough. Every chapter was cool and even if short, I loved the characters and Pariston became my number 2 fave villain. I'm eager to see more of him.
I think every arc had something great in it.
Personally my favourite would be the Yorkshin arc, I loved the dark drama accompanied by the mostly night time setting (auction machine gun massacre! this truely frightened me as a kid). The Ryodan members were cool and having all four main characters play a role in the story is a big bonus (but I hope Leorio gets more love in the future).
A very close runner up would be the Chimera Ant arc because this story was chock full of everything! Excellent new characters and character development with intelligent stategising (whether it be Killua overcoming the seemingly unbeatable dart nen ability or the preparation for the palace invasion). I wasn't too fond of it at the beginning as the setting seemed too unrealistic and the villains one-dimensional, but post-invasion gave some wonderful depth to these villains. A few things I really disliked, eg. Gon's power-up and the King's rebirth, but the positives far outweigh the negatives (at least the arc was given the best ending possible).
Third up would be the Election arc, but perhaps only at the beginning. I loved how it featured two separate stories which intertwined at the end and introduced Pariston to us, the Baka Ouji of the HXHverse. The Killua-Alluka-Illumi drama was nice but I was hoping for more to come out of it (seems to just end in nothingness). Alluka's ability was terrifying and I absolutely loved Togashi's explanation of its ability, but felt very deflated at the end when the major restriction could be overcome (the most disappointing part of the arc for me, even Pariston's resignation wasn't that disappointing). Nice introduction to an even broader story with the revelation of the outside world.
My least favourite is the Heaven's Arena arc, it didn't really offer much apart from introducing nen to us (and Hisoka had a pot-belly in the manga >=()
