Bangkok ranks No.42 out of 110 global cities as one of the best places for millennials to live, work and travel based on 17 factors, says Nestpick.

The apartment search engine anointed Berlin the best city for millennials, citing the German capital’s thriving startup scene, open attitude toward the LGBT community and world-renowned nightlife.

Canada was the top country for millennials, with three cities in the top 10: Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver.

Nestpick’s study was based on factors such as startup ecosystem, housing affordability, immigration tolerance and quality of nightlife.

With years of experience helping individuals of all ages find accommodation, the company has witnessed first-hand how young professionals display clear migrational patterns.

Nestpick, which conducted the study for the second year running, was aiming to pinpoint which cities were successfully attracting this demographic.

Building on last year’s study, Nestpick researched a wider scope of criteria and sources for the 2018 ranking, including an analysis of top universities and personal freedoms.

The main categories were weighted to reflect the concerns and mindsets of the generation. For example, while housing affordability is a major concern for most, it is even more so for young professionals at the start of their careers.

With these interests in mind, 110 cities were analysed with four main areas considered: the business ecosystem; the essentials (including housing and food); openness; and recreation.

“Millennials have grown up in a shrinking world, where the internet has opened doors their parents never could have dreamt of, and budget airlines made those avenues real possibilities,” said Omer Kucukdere, managing director of Nestpick. “It’s now possible to live and work anywhere in the world, and these opportunities are shaping how our planet will look to future generations.

“We must learn to adapt to the needs of younger people in order to have a thriving economy, and we believe that this ranking offers valuable insights into those cities looking for regeneration from a younger demographic.”
