Mumbai Placed 12th Best City in the World: Time Out Magazine Survey


NEW DELHI, Jan 24: In its annual list of best cities in the world revealed on Wednesday, the “Time Out” magazine has placed New York at the top of the 50 best cities in the world. New York’s lively food offerings, diverse cultural attractions, and vibrant nightlife have placed it in the first position, earning praise from both locals and international enthusiasts of fine dining.

While Cape Town in South Africa secured second place and London, Berlin, and Madrid rounding out the remaining posts in the top five, Mumbai distinguished itself as the sole representative from India, achieving the prestigious 12th position on this esteemed list and China’s national capital city of Beijing placed at the 27th rank.

This year’s rankings based on a combination of public surveys and expert insights from Time Out’s international team, celebrates cities that make their residents feel happy and fulfilled.

Time Out magazine has compiled this list of the finest cities globally, drawing insights from a survey of 20,000 urban residents and leveraging contributions from its extensive network of writers and editors. The ranking considers various aspects, including a city’s culinary landscape, architectural marvels, and cultural richness. The objective is to offer travel inspiration while presenting a glimpse into the unique qualities that define living experiences in diverse cities across the globe.

As the magazine stated on its website, the ranking “continues to be based on our global survey, as in previous years, targeting those who know their city best: the locals. Working with the research company Potentia Insight, we surveyed thousands of city dwellers about the quality and affordability of food, culture, and nightlife in their city. We also asked locals how their city makes them feel: are they happy there? Is it a beautiful place? Is it easy to make social connections? Their thousands of responses gave us a unique insight into the reality of living in the world’s greatest cities right now.”

Recognizing travel’s anticipated resurgence, Time Out’s 2024 city ranking amplified global appeal, weighting resident relocation desires and expert editor insights alongside resident satisfaction. This refined approach captures not only vibrant local life but also cities’ magnetic allure for international visitors.
