Business Insider have ranked the 50 most livable cities in the world. I always find it interesting to read lists containing different things and comparing. It’s always important to remember that everything we read and write- is subjective. It doesn’t really matter if it states that it’s “objective”. Do you agree? Can a person truly be objective? Internet is such an amazing world! But the results when searching for facts always depend on many different factors; search engines, how they’re built, the search words you enter and so on. I think it’s important to remember that. So of course when you try and find different lists that rank nice cities to live in, they always look different. I do quite like this list though:
The metrics in this list included crime rates, healthcare quality, infrastructure and levels of corruption. Top of the list is… wait!
The list starts with Los Angeles. A very cool city to visit! Quite beautiful with nice scenery and good shopping. The traffic can be quite horrendous though. 11 out of the 50 cities are in the US actually. San Francisco is another one that I like. 2 cities included are from the U.K. I’m surprised that London is low on the list. 4 cities are in Canada. I really like Canada and find the cities that I have visited very beautiful! 23 cities are in Europe (it is a big continent) and 12 in Asia (incl AZ/NZ). The city in this survey as number 1 is… ta da:
Vienna in Austria.
You can always debate why certain cities are included and not in these type of lists. If nothing else I love the pictures here and it makes me want to really visit some of them sometime soon!
