How are the cities ranked?

The company asked 20,000 people around the world as well as global editors what makes their city great via the survey The Time Out Index. The survey results are then analyzed and compiled in global city rankings.

Each city is analyzed based on its museums, restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Time Out’s goal is to make their findings “the ultimate bucket list for 2022.” Cities’ public transportation, safety and sustainability initiatives are also taken into consideration when being ranked.

Coming in at number one is Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. The city is popular for its food, friendliness, and arts festivals. 

Chicago takes the number two spot because of its nightlife scene. Third place goes to Medellín, Colombia for its amazing food, boutique hotels, and nightlife.
