1. Pyongyang, North Korea — A large capital city of over 2.5 million inhabitants, Pyongyang has very few cars or crowds. Electricity shortages are reportedly common and there isn’t much in the way of a lively nightlife. Doesn’t sound like much fun does it? But for sheer quiet, Pyongyang takes the cake.
2. Yinchuan, China — This hub of 2 million people in northwest China was rated number one in a survey of 46 major Chinese cities. Boasting a decibel level of only 50.1, Yinchaun does not allow drivers to honk their horns, and noisy factories have been moved out of the city centre.
3. Hartford, Connecticut — Men’s Health magazine once rated this New England city as the quietest in the United States. Thank Hartford’s local noise ordinance for that title.
4. Brisbane, Australia — The third largest city in the country, Brisbane isn’t a place you hear too much about. With its peaceful city centre, Green Cabs and laid back attitude, Brisbane is still vibrant, but it’s a place where you can actually talk in the bars instead of having to shout over loud music.
5. Singapore — Both a city and a country, Singapore is clean, organised and has the potential to be one of the quietest bustling cities in the world. Though it’s a long way off from being considered a sleepy town, if the Land Transport Authority is successful in its electric vehicle scheme, we may not be hearing much noise pollution in this city-state.
1. Tokyo, Japan — New York may be the city that never sleeps, but Tokyo doesn’t even rest its eyes. Densely populated and full of life, the Japanese capital is the largest metropolitan area in the world by population and the world’s biggest urban economy.
2. Mumbai, India — With a metropolitan population approaching 20 million people, you can’t expect much peace and quiet from this crowded megalopolis. The economic hub of the Indian subcontinent (1.7 billion people), Mumbai has been booming since the early 1990s and is not showing any signs of slowing down.
3. Brussels, Belgium — A big city in a small country, the yearly INRIX Traffic Scorecard says Brussels has the world’s worst traffic jams. Brussels is also one of the bureaucratic centres of the world, hosting the major institutions of the European Union.
4. Mexico City — Some estimates put the population of this megalopolis at 30 million, though its densely-populated city proper boasts a tightly-packed 9 million. It is a place marked by wealth and beauty on the one hand, and crime, poverty and pollution on the other.
5. New York City — The largest city in the US and a business, entertainment, cultural and culinary capital, New York is teeming with tourists all year round and home to migrants from every corner of the world. There’s a reason why they say this city never sleeps.
