"Millennials grew up in a shrinking world, where the internet opened doors their parents could never 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." Ömer Kücükdere, managing director of Nestpick, said in an official statement.
He added: "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."
Surprisingly, not one Indian metropolitan city made the list of the 110 best cities for millennials.
