What's the best city in the world? It's a hotly contested title – but after asking 15,000 people all over the world, we think we've come up with an answer. Having quizzed thousands of urbanites for this year's Time Out City Life Index
, we scored 32 cities – from Singapore
to San Francisco
– on criteria such as food, drink, culture, friendliness, affordability, happiness and liveability. Then we crunched the numbers to work out which cities are the best for living city life to the full. Here’s our final ranking: the most exciting cities in the world to live in and visit in 2018. Start stacking up that bucket list.
