Ever dreamed of packing up everything and moving to another country? Here are the most livable cities in the world, according to a study by The Economist.
The Most Livable Cities in the World
- Melbourne, Australia
- Vienna, Austria
- Vancouver, Canada
- Toronto, Canada
- Calgary, Canada
- Adelaide, Australia
- Perth, Australia
- Auckland, New Zealand
- Helsinki, Finland
- Hamburg, Germany
To determine the most livable cities in the world, 140 urban centers were evaluated and given an overall rating based on five factors: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. For the seventh year in a row, Melbourne has taken the top spot as the most livable city.
The top five cities are the same as 2016, but “this year, cities such as Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, and the Dutch capital, Amsterdam, have benefited from an increasing cultural availability and falling crime rates,” the report states.
Keep an eye on these cities, as their livability also makes them great tourist destinations.
