Moving to another city can be a challenge, especially if it is overseas. The biggest challenge though is figuring out where the best place to move would be. Most people move because of their job or family. For those that don’t really work for anyone in particular moving should be looked at as a global option. The only problem with that is there are too many cities to choose from so to make it easier to figure out the best place to move Forbes created a list of the most influential cities in the world. That is why you should think about one of the top ten places as an option for moving to.
