According to Nestpick’s latest 2018 Millennial Cities Ranking, Kuala Lumpur (KL) came in as the second top Asian city for Millenials – with the first Asian city being Beijing in China. Globally, KL ranked 54th position, with Hong Kong following closely (57th), and then Singapore (84th).

Breaking down the scores further, Kuala Lumpur received a 9.3 on its employment score – which was based on unemployment data provided by the OECD, Eurostat and US Bureau of Labor. Its high employment score reflects low unemployment in the city. In comparison, Singapore scored 3.0 while Hong Kong scored 2.2 on the employment rating.

The cities were also ranked on other scoring criterias such as startup, tourism, housing, food, transport, health, internet speed, university, access to contraception, gender equality, immigration, personal freedom and choice, LGBT-friendly, nightlife, beer and festival rankings.

In the report, Ömer Kücükdere, managing director of Nestpick, said: “Millennials grew up in a shrinking world, where the internet opened doors their parents never could have dreamed of, and budget airlines made those avenues real possibilities. 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 to those cities looking for regeneration from a younger demographic,” he added.
