The List Of Cities Where It Is Great To Live In


Here's a list of cities with the best quality of life in the world made by HR Consultancy firm Mercer. Mercer’s Quality of Living Survey was calculated for 2016 and includes data from 450 cities around the world. The survey takes into consideration safety, political and cultural environments, job opportunities, cleanliness, and some other factors.

Montreal, Canada.
Commerce. Finance. Technology. French accents. Montreal’s got it going on.

Luxemborg.
This little ass country borders France, Germany, and Belgium, so there’s the benefit of being exposed to a ton of different cultures. Crime is also super low, and the country’s extremely rich due to its hush-hush finance laws. So it’s basically like living in that scene from Wolf of Wall Street where Leo talks to that dude from The Artist.

Hamburg, Germany.
This city’s becoming a hotspot of growing media and industrial companies, and houses the world’s second oldest bank: Berenberg. It also is the root for the word, “Hamburger”, so there’s always that.

Vancouver, Canada.
Seriously, Canada, stop having so many awesome cities. It’s starting to make everyone look bad. Vancouver’s quality of life is through the roof, not to mention it’s super ethnically diverse: 52% of the population’s first language isn’t English.
19The List Of Cities                                     Where It Is Great To Live In

Paterson, NJ
LOL JUST KIDDING. Paterson’s a bleak-looking hell hole riddled with an ever-growing heroin trade, a laughably incompetent public school system, and all for a high cost of living without any real job growth unless you’re an aspiring drug dealer or business owner who earns the majority of their money through tax fraud.
