Dubai one of the world’s best places to live, study reveals

  • Dubai News

Dubai has been ranked one of the world’s best places to live, according to a new study.

Researchers at Resonance Consultancy placed the emirate at ninth globally, praising the good quality of live and pleasant environment.



That means Dubai is rated higher than other destinations including San Francisco, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Sydney and Madrid.

In first place was London, followed by Paris and New York – we’ve got the full list below.

The report is based on online recommendations, attractions and infrastructure, the strength of the business sector, the diversity of the city and the culinary scene among other factors. And as anyone who livas here will tell you, Dubai has all those things and much, mouch more.

Resonance Consultancy president Chris Fair said:

“The emirate comes in at #2 in the world in our deep Place category, for which we look at influential factors like crime rate, neighbourhoods and landmarks, weather and parks and outdoor activities.

“Dubai ranks #6 in weather and finished second to only Hanoi for parks and outdoor activities.”

Earlier this month, a separate survey by HSBC ranked the UAE above the US, UK, Hong Kong and Australia making it one of the best places to work.

The country ranked fourth for economics in the Expat Explorer research of more than 22,000 people working abroad, marking its third consecutive year in the top five.

Top reasons for moving here including to increase earnings, for career progression and for an improvement in quality of life.

Two thirds of expats say they have more disposable income, with 85 percent paying off debts and building up savings.

And seven in 10 people would recommend the country to someone looking for a new life abroad, which isn’t a surprise considering how much there is to do here.
