Global Finance’s ranking of the world’s best cities to live in, during 2022 has just been released. Centred on 8 different parameters that calculate and compare the quality of life of people living in urban areas such as economy, culture, population, environment, etc., this year’s edition also took into consideration Covid-19 deaths per thousand for each country, to reflect the new reality we live in.
Claiming the first spot is London, UK, a city that although didn’t get high rankings in its Covid-19 metrics, still topped the list, mainly due to its scores in culture, accessibility, and population growth.
Tokyo was selected for the second position, showing weakness in one parameter, population, as its numbers have been declining for the past 10 years. Shanghai followed next, in the third position, because of relatively low Covid-19 death figures and strong population growth.
Singapore and Melbourne came in 4th and 5th positions.
1. London, United Kingdom
3. Shanghai, China
4. Singapore, Republic of Singapore
6. Sydney, Australia
7. Paris, France
8. Beijing, China
