The World’s 48 Most Exciting Cities, 2019

New York, United-States

New York has been named the world’s most exciting city for 2019, according to a survey released by London-based Time Out magazine. Based on surveys of more than 34,000 city-dwellers in 48 different cities worldwide, the 2019 rankings also indicated that “The Big Apple” was also city most people want to visit this year.

At No. 3 on the list, Chicago (No. 3) was one place behind the Australian city of Melbourne (No. 2) and one above London (No. 4) in the United Kingdom. In 5th place is the City of Angeles, better known as Los Angeles, followed by our beloved Montreal in Canada. Berlin missed the top six but managed to grab the number seven spot while Scotland’s largest city Glasgow, took on number eight.

Magazine quizzed anonymous city-dwellers about food, drink, culture, nightlife, community, neighbourhoods, overall happiness and other factors, such as their city’s beauty, affordability, and convenience in their poll. The number 9 spot was given to Paris in France, followed by Japan’s Tokyo, and Madrid in Spain.
