UAE cities get comfy in global survey
DUBAI and Abu Dhabi have held their ground in an annual worldwide study that looks at how comfortable places are to live in.
The Economist Intelligence Unit’s bi-annual survey looks at 30 indicators across five broad categories - stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education and infrastructure - and applies them to 140 cities across the world.
In the latest survey Abu Dhabi is in 79th place, while Dubai remains in 88th spot; Bahrain is 80th and Muscat is 89th. Riyadh was ranked at 109th, with Kuwait City at 90.
Melbourne remains the most liveable location of the cities surveyed, followed by the Austrian capital of Vienna.
