The Resonance group of international consultants continues the annual tradition by publishing the list of the best cities in the world.
This ranking is based on several factors including product (a city’s key institutions, attractions, and infrastructure), programming (arts, culture, entertainment, and culinary scene), people (a city’s immigration rate and diversity), and prosperity ( occupation of a city, corporate headquarters, household income and the employment rate).
Despite the importance of these more objective factors, the stories, advice and reviews that can be found online about a city are also not overlooked.
Let’s see together the list of the best cities in the world.
