The “greatest” cities in the world are subjective and cannot be judged by measurements. As a result, the Time Out Index polled 34,000 people in 48 locations across the globe, as well as travel experts and editors.
Some individuals feel that their home city is the finest in the world, while others say that there is no such thing as a “best city” since it all depends on what a person seeks in an ideal metropolis.
Some people believe the best city has historic sites and world-famous landmarks, while others believe the best city has a large number of world-famous restaurants, and still others consider other factors like affordability, people’s friendliness, and shopping.
The Time Out Index teamed up with Tapestry Research to poll 34,000 anonymous city people on their cities’ cuisine, drink, nightlife, neighborhoods, community, affordability, safety, diversity, and general happiness, among other things.
