Alongside increasing ease of travel and growing migration of the world’s inhabitants, multicultural multinational societies are slowly becoming the norm. For travellers, let alone people living in the city, this creates an interesting dynamic when visiting a new destination. From experiencing an amazingly diverse food scene to a brilliantly vibrant arts culture, these days, one city can offer the world.
By no means an extensive list, here are some of the most Multi places to visit in the world:
- Singapore. Priding itself on the diverse range of cultures and religions that coexist on this tiny island, Singapore boasts 4 official languages; English, Malay, Mandarin and Tamil. It’s long been a flocking point for those seeking a better life and walking through the city you can explore the vibrant Chinese, Malay and Indian communities all in one day.
- Often topping lists proclaiming the world’s most multicultural cities, Toronto is home to 200 ethnic groups, with around half its population born outside the country. Explore many of its international districts for amazingly authentic food, new music and exciting art hubs
- New York. An iconic American city where thousands of people come to realise their dreams – simultaneously bringing a piece of their homes and history with them. It’s no wonder this city has now cultivated a lively and diverse cultural atmosphere that has in turn shaped new music genres and art forms.
- Sao Paulo. A multicultural society built from numerous waves of migration starting in the 1800s, many consider Sao Paulo the most diverse city in South America. It’s culinary landscape in particular is definitely one to explore and strong influences from Italian and Japanese migrants can be felt just walking around it’s distinct neighbourhoods
- London. What better way to unite a multicultural population than through food and celebration? London is home to an ethnically diverse population – a third of Londoners are foreign-born – giving the city a pulse like no other.
