Melbourne Did it Again

Yes, Melbourne did it again, as they topped every city in the world. And this time, with two awards in the same week—first, as the world’ friendliest city by Conde Nast Traveler, and gets crowned again for the fourth consecutive time as the world’s most liveable city by the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Global Liveablility Index.

According to reports, Melbourne was ahead of over 130 cities in the Livablilty Index. This includes Adelaide and Sydney placing at number five and numbers seven respectively. On the other hand, the Conde Nast Traveler reader survey for friendliest city, the results show that Sydney came in at number five, while readers saying “They’re [Syndneysiders] always helpful, and they love Americans!”.

In addition, the survey also cited Sydney as being home to the best food in the world. Melbourne has something to say about that, as Ben Shwery’s restaurant Attica was named Australia’s best restaurant by Gourmet Traveller.

The EUI survey has five categories to measure the statistics. This includes healthcare, culture and environment, stability, education and infrastructure. Melbourne had an outstanding perfect score in education, infrastructure, healthcare, and had a bonus score for sport facilities.
