Singapore tops city infrastructure rankings

It is also the nicest city in Asia for expats to live in.

The latest list from consulting firm Mercer ranked Singapore as the city with the best infrastructure in the world.

According to Mercer, city infrastructure plays an important role when multinationals decide where to establish locations abroad and send expats.

"Easy access to transportation, reliable electricity, and drinkable water are all important considerations when determining hardship allowances based on differences between a given assignee's home and host locations," noted Mercer.

Following Singapore on the list are two cities in Germany – Frankfurt and Munich.

On the list of the nicest city in terms of the quality of living, Singapore placed 25th worldwide but ranked the best in Asia. It was followed by four cities in Japan namely Tokyo, Kobe, Yokohama, and Osaka.
