Twenty-twenty has been a year like no other for every country in the world. The Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in countless changes to daily life, with restaurants and bars closed, social events and travel plans being cancelled. But there’re still reasons to celebrate and be optimistic, as a new ranking of the 100 best cities on the planet proves.
Issued by Resonance Consultancy, a leading global advisor in tourism, economic development and real estate, the report celebrates the very best cities the world has to offer, which evaluated 100 cities around the world with populations of one million or more according to 25 ranking factors, including safety, number of culinary experiences, museums, and attractions under six major categories: Place, Products, People, Prosperity, Programming and Promotion.
Instead of merely looking at the quality of life or the appeal of tourism, the study identifies the most desirable destinations for locals, visitors and business people alike, with detailed analyses conducted based on user-generated reviews and online activity in channels, such as Google, Facebook and Instagram. New factors such as the rate of Covid-19 infections, unemployment rates and income inequality were also considered in this year’s list.
