London is Named the Best City in the World, Beating Paris, Singapore and Japan

Harrods, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace, double-decker buses, there are more than enough number of iconic things that London is known for. And according to the latest survey by real estate and tourism consultancy Resonance, London has been named as the best city in the world for 2023, beating Paris, New York, Japan, Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and many other popular cities across the globe.

The most recent survey by Resonance ranked 100 cities from across the world based on six different categories – place, product, programming, people, prosperity, and promotion – and came to the results that London tops the list of the best cities in 2023. It comes ahead of popular Asian cities such as Singapore, Bangkok, Hong Kong and Mumbai as well as cities such as Paris and New York to grab the top spot.

London is home to 11 million people, the report states, and is also known for its restaurants, food culture, architecture and luxurious properties. Not only that, the city attracts the rich, making it one of the most preferred and loved cities across the globe. Resonance’s list focused on factors that were more financial and business-focussed, which also helped it get that top spot. London also attracts huge investments, the report adds, which is another factor that has added to its presence as the top city in the world.

Paris is the second name on the list, while the Big Apple, New York, is the third. These places have been numbered based on the presence of large tech firms over the number of tourist spots in the said destinations.

Singapore features at the ninth spot on the list, while Hong Kong is the 16th top city in the world. Bangkok, on the other hand, ranks in 30th place. The only destination from India, aka Mumbai, features on the 72nd spot.
