According to a report published by Time Out has ranked Lagos in Nigeria as the 19th best city to visit in the world.

The report ranked Lagos above Dubai city in the United Arab Emirates; San Francisco and Miami in the United States.

Apart from Lagos, the only African cities on the list were South Africa's Cape Town (ranked second) and Ghana's Accra (44th).

Time Out claimed its conclusion was based on a survey of more than 20,000 city dwellers worldwide, as well as its network of editors.

The criteria used to rank the cities include food (quality and cost), culture, nightlife, how the city makes people feel, strong community feelings, access to open space, historic landmarks, and much more.

The report reads: “Whether you’re a staunch mainlander or from Lekki, there’s something for everyone in Lagos, Africa’s most populous city.

“Both the city and its suburbs are expanding – just check out live-work-play concept Eko Atlantic City. Just out of town, Epe, on the north side of Lekki Lagoon, is experiencing a boom.

“When it comes to standard of living, Lagos has a lot going for it – 96 percent of locals are happy, 98 percent would call Lagos beautiful and the city got a 92 percent friendliness rating, too,” the report added.

The report also praised Victoria Island's trio of posh resorts, food haunts, and nightlife, as well as Ikeja's Kuti's Bistro, owned by the famed afrobeat family, for providing "reliably delicious food" and Oniru Beach for leisure.

In 2023, the Economist Intelligence Unit ranked Lagos as the world's fourth worst city to live.

Lagos was ranked higher than Algeria's capital, Tripoli, Libya's capital, and Damascus, the capital of war-torn Syria.

The report surveyed 173 cities and used 30 qualitative and quantitative factors across five broad categories: stability, healthcare, culture and environment, education, and infrastructure. See the full list:
