The Best Countries To Live in 2023

Here is The Complete List of The Best Countries To Live in 2023.

After COVID-19, the quality of life in cities around the world is improving once again. Overall living standards have reached a 15-year high, according to the Economist Intelligence Unit’s annual Global Livability Index, which measures 173 cities around the world on measures of sustainability, health, culture, and environment, as well as education and infrastructure.

The increase is attributed to improvements in health and education standards in Asia, the Middle East, and Africa, although the stability score has fallen due to the global inflationary crisis stemming from the Ukraine conflict.

But on the other hand, after the end of the restrictions imposed during COVID-19, there are significant signs of overall improvement due to the improvement of cultural and environmental scores.

The index looks at how livable a city is based on data, but only those who actually live in that city can tell how their experiences are.

We spoke to residents of the top 10 cities in this ranking and tried to find out why they chose to live in that particular city.

Vienna, Austria

The Austrian capital has remained at number one on the list and only dropped down in 2021 when its museums and restaurants were closed due to COVID-19.

However, residents of Vienna say that the city is the best in terms of stability, health system, education, and infrastructure. Manuela Filippo is the manager of two Michelin-starred restaurants. She manages them with the help of her husband.

They say that its history, reliable public transportation, and easy access to cafes, theaters, and other entertainment venues are some of the factors that make Vienna a perennial entertainment destination.

Richard Voss is the Sales and Marketing Manager at Hotel Das Tigra in Vienna. He believes that the city’s quality of living is enhanced by the cultural history and activities available.

Richard Voss says Vienna has many impressive historical buildings such as the Schönbrunn Palace, the Hofburg, and the Vienna City Hall,”. The city is also famous for its musical traditions as Mozart, Beethoven, and Strauss lived here.

He says the city’s many museums, theaters, and opera houses allow residents to enjoy these cultural traditions.

He suggests that people should also enjoy Viennese food culture.

Melbourne, Australia

The Australian cities of Melbourne and Sydney have both regained the third and fourth positions in the rankings this time, which were taken away from them during COVID-19 as the health system in Australia came under a lot of pressure.

However, this time around, Melbourne in particular scores well in terms of culture and environment, and locals are proud of it.

Jane Morrell is the CEO of Carrier Solutions. She says Melbourne is a top city because of its food, cultural activities, and events, as well as international sports such as the Australian Formula One and the Australian Open. She says that “traveling in the city has also become quite easy” thanks to trams that can be easily hopped on and off. Melbourne is also located just a short distance from world-famous beaches.

Sydney is not a city of buildings, it is a city of culture and it takes some time to explore. Sydney is gorgeous because there are so many stunning views, beaches, and historic buildings. To uncover Sydney’s pulse, she advises, “You must eat different foods in the city’s restaurants, find secret bars, and sit in a cafe and drink the best coffee of your life.” Gay people hiding in a closet or behind a mystery door.

They say people in Melbourne are nicer than in Sydney. Jane Morrell also credits the positive attitude of residents as one of the reasons the city scores well.

The people of Melbourne are really pleasant, according to her.

Three Canadian cities are in the top 10 on the list, including Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto.

However, Vancouver ranks in the top five due to its culture and environment scores. Locals love Vancouver for the same reason.
