10 most prosperous cities in the world

Dubai is among the 10 most prosperous cities in the world in 2024

Dubai is ranked among the top 10 cities in the world for livability, lovability, and prosperity, according to Resonance’s World’s Best Cities Report.

Dubai is recognized as a better city than many others, including San Francisco, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Washington, Istanbul, Vienna, Toronto, Boston, Melbourne, Zurich, Sydney, and many more for living, working, and prospering.

London was at the top of the list of important cities, followed by Paris, New York, Tokyo, Singapore, Dubai, San Francisco, Barcelona, Amsterdam, and Seoul.

The key indices of livability, lovability, and prosperity include factors like walkability, sights and landmarks, parks and recreation, airport connectivity, museums, nightlife, restaurants, shopping, attractions, educational attainment, human capital, Fortune 500 Global Companies, number of startups, and others.

“Famed for outlandish developments like Palm Jumeirah, home to Atlantis, the Palm and the made famous by Tom-Cruise Burj Khalifa — the tallest building in the world, the city has, over the years, made breaking world records a national pastime: tallest, longest, fastest, largest. Think of it, and the city’s probably done it,” said the report.

“No wonder it ranks No. 8 in our Attractions subcategory, crammed with never-ending malls, aquariums, indoor ski parks, dancing fountains, fantasy theme parks, and Disneyfied water playgrounds that pay homage to Hollywood, Bollywood, Marvel, and Lego — as well as innumerable family-friendly resorts,” the Resonance report added.

Riyadh is ranked 28th among regional cities, Doha is 36th, Kuwait is 58th, and Muscat is 89th. On a global scale, Abu Dhabi is placed 25th and second in the Arab region.

“As our cities leave the pandemic behind, they walk forward with lessons forged in lockdowns and outdoor safe spaces fresh on their minds. Our urban centers and their citizens, current and future, are completely rethinking what they consider desirable in a place to live, work, or play,” said Chris Fair, president and CEO of Resonance Consultancy.
