Bangkok, Thailand (No 42) beats both Kuala Lumpur (53) and Singapore (84) in the 2018 Millennial Cities Ranking.

However, digitally native, entrepreneurial and well-travelled, millennials are not afraid to relocate halfway across the world.

Nevertheless, Asian cities do not tempt them.

They place Bangkok far behind Berlin, Germany (1), Montréal, Canada (2), London, United Kingdom (3), Amsterdam, Netherlands (4) and Toronto, Canada (5).

According to the survey, the Millennials group would relocate for the right opportunities and experiences.

But what make them shun the Asian cities, including Hong Kong (57) and why did Singapore fare so badly?

Well, if you are a Milennial, you would prefer a city where:

1. You can build a startup company

2. You can have access to contraception

3. Where gender equality is higher and

4. Where personal freedom and freedom of choice is a guaranteed principle.

The cities that landed on top well above the Asian cities qualify fo these.

But the number one factor that made the top cities the first choice for the Milennials is the LGBT tolerance factor.

Right after the gayness of the cities, came the fact that these cities offeres a more festive atmosphere.

Even Bangkok fares badly in the eyes of the Millennials in the gayness and festive mood.

Bangkok, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Beijing, Hong Kong and other cities does not have these attractions.

Thus they are dumped in the second tier of the survey.

The survey was built with four main interests in mind.

Nestpick, the company behind the survey, said it analysed 110 cities, taking into consideration these four main concerns.
