From Paris to New York, these destinations have been named the best city breaks for travellers over the past year, reports CNN.
Ranking of the best cities in the world
When it comes to ranking the best city destinations in the world, there are no right answers. It depends on who you are, what you like and what you’re looking to get out of a city. We, for instance, have our own ranking of the best cities in the world, which is based on a vast range of factors for both visitors and residents.
So, when it comes to ranking the world’s best city destinations, we’re a little biased. But there are other rankings of note. Market research firm Euromonitor, for instance, has a yearly Top 100 City Destinations Index which looks at 100 cities and considers six broad categories: sustainability, infrastructure, health and safety, economic performance, and tourism policies.
Top of the pile for Euromonitor this year was Paris! The French capital came first for the second year running, performing admirably across all six categories. Next up was Dubai, followed by Amsterdam. Here’s the full top ten.
- Paris, France
- Dubai, UAE
- Amsterdam, Netherlands
- Madrid, Spain
- Rome, Italy
- London, UK
- Munich, Germany
- Berlin, Germany
- Barcelona, Spain
- New York, USA
As you can see, Euromonitor’s top ten isn’t exactly full of surprises – it’s dominated by many of the biggest names in city break travel. If you want to read the full report, you’ll have to fork out quite a lot of cash (£875/$1,080 in fact), though Euromonitor has summed up the highlights here.
