Not A Single African City Makes CNN’s List Of Least Stressful Cities

Story from: 2oceansvibe.com

I dunno if that above surprises you, but Africa does have three in the list of top 10 most stressful cities.

A new study has revealed the world’s most and least stressful cities of 2017, and coming out tops is Stuttgart.

The rankings are based on a number of factors which, according to CNN, include the following:

…traffic levels, public transport, percentage of green spaces, financial status of citizens including debt levels, physical and mental health, and the hours of sunlight the city gets per year.

The rankings were applied to 150 cities around the world, and four of the top 10 were from Germany.

You can pop over that side of the world, Cape Town to Frankfurt, for as little as R7 640 return. Just saying.

Popping up in second is Luxembourg City, the capital of the rather diminutive Luxembourg, with an estimated population of just 115 000.

Let’s just plonk that list down here for you to ogle:

1. Stuttgart, Germany
2. Luxembourg City, Luxembourg
3. Hanover, Germany
4. Bern, Switzerland
5. Munich, Germany
6. Bordeaux, France
7. Edinburgh, UK
8. Sydney, Australia
9. (tie) Graz, Austria and Hamburg, Germany

Not a Yank city in sight – classic.

As for the 10 most stressful:

1. Baghdad, Iraq
2. Kabul, Afghanistan
3. Lagos, Nigeria
4. Dakar, Senegal
5. Cairo, Egypt
6. Tehran, Iran
7. Dhaka, Bangladesh
8. Karachi, Pakistan
9. New Delhi, India

10. Manila, Philippines

A few more that might interest you – London (No. 70), Tokyo (No. 72), Paris (No. 78) and New York (No. 84). Flight Centre might just have a fantastic birthday special running to one of those cities, so check out what’s on offer HERE.

And now for the grand finish, and what we have all been waiting for – Cape Town is in at 102 and Jozi at 135.

Shweet.
