GOOD LIFE: Yachts at Palma
SPAIN is the only country in the world that can boast two cities among the top ten places with the highest quality of life in the world: Madrid and Palma de Mallorca.
These are the conclusions of a study by the international team at Knight Frank, which takes into account various factors such as culture, education, cost of living, leisure activities, the range of top quality restaurants and the climate.
In this ranking, Dubai was considered the city with the highest quality of life in the world, due to its 350 days of sunshine a year, the low cost of living there, the wide variety of luxury leisure activities and the educational facilities available to foreigners looking to find a school for their children.
Meanwhile, the largest island in the Balearic archipelago, Mallorca, came in second place as a result of its 300 days of sunshine a year and the high scores it received in the other general factors being evaluated.
Madrid, the capital of Spain did achieve tenth place in this ranking thanks to its luxury leisure activities and the reasonable prices at which they are offered.
Otherwise, the list of the top 10 destinations in the world for quality of life is made up of the Cayman Islands in third place, followed by Geneva and Cyprus, with London placed in sixth position, then Hong Kong, Singapore, Auckland and Monaco.
