World’s best city for expats revealed
(CNN)Ever doubted that cake makes the world a better place?
Consider the fact that Vienna — the city that perfected the doughnut, the chocolate cake, the strudel and a zillion other calorific treats — has been named the world’s best city for expats.
No coincidence surely.
The Austrian capital ranked in the top spot for overall quality of living in consulting firm Mercer’s 18th annual study of foreign workers’ overseas lifestyles. For the seventh year running it beat out major international capitals including New York, London, Paris, Hong Kong and Dubai — none of which made it anywhere near the top 20.
Immediately behind Vienna are a slew of other mainly Western European cities, with Zurich, Switzerland in second place and Munich, Germany in fourth.
