Monocle: ASEAN is the best region for living in the new Monocle Quality of Life Survey 2015: Tokyo (1), Melbourne (4), Sydney (5), Fukuoka (12), Singapore (13), Kyoto (14), Auckland (17), Hong Kong (19)
This year sees the biggest shake-up of our annual Quality of Life list since it launched in 2007. We’ve added 22 new metrics and the new additions have led to some dramatic changes in the order of the top 25 cities. Old favourites have slipped down the list, while we also welcome back one entry. And we have a new number one. We hope, as in previous years, the list provokes a stimulating and lively debate.
