Ready for a change of scenery? This report could give you some inspiration. Published by U.K. finance site money.co.uk, the report ranks the “most attractive cities to move to” if you’re a remote worker or an adventurous soul looking to start fresh.
The report has examined a number of key factors to come up with its ranking, including housing markets, average annual temperatures, property costs, average salaries, and living costs, as well as the amount of restaurants and green space it has. The report also takes into account the average life expectancy and internet speeds in each city.
The ranking gives each city a rating out of 10 based on the key factors. Of the 84 cities worldwide included in the list, Austin, Tokyo, and Charleston got the highest scores.
