To compile the ranking, the Canadian company analyzed more than 270 global cities with populations of more than one million to determine the top 100.

Its decisions are based on criteria such as sights and landmarks, airport connectivity, parks and recreation, nightlife, restaurants, shopping and GDP per capita, grouped into three pillars: livability, lovability and prosperity.

“Although not as expansive or bustling as Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi offers a plethora of activities and attractions, from urban landmarks, chaotic markets for bargain hunters, awe-inspiring heritage structures like the Imperial Citadel – a UNESCO World Heritage site – and a vibrant nightlife that holds its own charm,” the report said.

In addition to Hanoi, Singapore (5th) and Bangkok (39th) are the other two representatives from Southeast Asia to break into the top 100.
