Top Ten Most Diverse Cities In the World


The Top Ten

1 New York

A city which nearly 40% of it's population is foreign born and over 500 languages are spoken. It is truly the capital of the world.

Diverse city with so many different cultures!

It's so big, people of any race could go.

Actually, I've been to New York and despite its diversity, it's a very racist city. - TheCanadianLoyalist

2 Toronto Toronto Toronto is the capital of the Canadian province of Ontario. It is located within the Golden Horseshoe in Southern Ontario on the northern shore of Lake Ontario.

About 50% is foreign born in Toronto! Vibrant mix of cultures! People from all around the world unlike New York which is mainly Jewish or Latino or Black minorities

Toronto is diverse and any person from any race can easily fit in

Toronto is the most diverse city in the world

Awesome diversity, mosaic of cultures

3 London London London is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom. Standing on the River Thames in the south eastern part of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia.

Where I live in London, there is a large Polish community, and I live adjacent to a street with two Polish delis right next to each other. Competition between them is pretty hot. And I have a friend who lives in Southall, which is more commonly called "Little India". - PositronWildhawk

Filled with people all over the world, especially former British colonies like Jamaica or Trinidad but a lot of others like Poles and Arabs. - PolishGuy

4 Los Angeles

Los Angeles is diverse in so many ways other than just races or languages. It's the richest and the poorest, the prettiest and the ugliest. It has the most stereotypical, annoying people in the world, but it also has some of the coolest people you'll ever meet. There's drug-addicts and health-lovers. These can be found in any city but it's so extreme in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is so big that you can't just call it one city (and Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Venice, Beverly Hills and Calabasas are all actually separate cities, to name a few). LA has all types of landscapes close by: beaches, deserts, valleys, rugged coasts, mountains, pine forests, etc.

Spanish will become the Main Language within 20 year. Also a lot of African-Americans, and Asians. - PolishGuy

Los Angeles is diverse, as you can find many races here, from Vietnamese, to Armenian, to Ethiopian. - ethanmeinster

5 Moscow
6 Paris

In France 117 Nationalities are represented, that makes the European country with the highest number of different nationalities (before London) and one of the firs in the world.
And more then 80% are not coming from ex-colonies, which ended 60 years ago for last ones in North Africa.

A lot of immigrants from former colonies like Niger or Morocco. - PolishGuy

7 Chicago Chicago more.

I am Polish but I was born there and 55% of my class was Polish, 25% Latino, 10% Arab, 5% Other Countries, 5% American. - PolishGuy

8 Sydney

It is a beautiful multi-cultural city

9 Brussels

An amazingly diverse city. There are people here from every country imaginable and the number of languages spoken are too many to even count!

It has one of the largest Islamic populations in Europe, also a lot of Jains which is unusual for Europe. - PolishGuy

10 Montreal

Well I live there and I admit there's a lot of Italians, Haitiens, Chineses, some Brazilians, Koreans, Japaneses, Americans, Mexicans, Arabs!, Russians, Ukrainians and even Pakistanis! Montreal have a lot of immigrants like Toronto as in Canada. - CanadianGuy99
