Recently, Time Out magazine released the list of the top 10 best cities in the world, where the list shows 37 cities, and San Francisco, Amsterdam, and Manchester are at the top of the list.
The new poll by international culture and entertainment magazine Time Out answers the question. However, to find out the best cities in the world, 27,000 city-dwellers are questioned for the outlet, from Melbourne to Madrid, Chicago to Copenhagen and Tel Aviv to Tokyo.
The poll recognises all the tremendous things these places have accomplished over the past 18 months during the COVID-19 crisis.
They were rated based on the green space, and sustainability.community projects, However, the ranking was not solely based on the food and culture.

According to Time Out, San Francisco in the US has been ranked 1st among the best cities in the world. Yet, one might have seen this city in films, or have maybe even visited it.
