Dubai took 1st place in the region and 5th place in the ranking of the best cities in the world for 2023, compiled by the world’s leading consultant in the field of tourism, real estate and economic development.
The Resonance consulting company ranks cities around the world — cities with a population of one million or more — by combining quantitative activity data with qualitative assessments of residents and visitors in 24 areas divided into six main categories: location, product, programming, prosperity, people and promotion.
When the weather, safety, attractions, and outdoor activities were taken into account, Dubai came out on top.
Chris Fair, president, and CEO of Resonance Consultant mentioned the “rapid growth of urban development” in Dubai over the previous 24 months.
The report described Dubai as an enticing mix of excellent experiences, Arab heritage and luxury shopping.
The deepest pool in the world, Dubai Mall, Burj Khalifa, Museum of the Future, Mohammed Bin Rashid Library, Dubai Creek, The Palm, Ain Dubai, Cityland Mall, and Aura Skypool – the first and highest infinity pool with 360 degrees – are among the attractions of Dubai that are highlighted in the report.
TOP-10 cities in order include London, Paris, New York, Tokyo, Dubai, Barcelona, Rome, Madrid, Singapore, and Amsterdam. These cities also appear in the overall ranking in all categories.
