Top Ten Most Diverse Cities In the World
The Top Ten
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
Just to prove how diverse London is, New Malden suburb in greater London (approx 10 miles from Central) and it is not easy to get into town from there. It is also said to have the largest South Korean population in the world outside of Korea which is on the OTHERSIDE OF THE WORLD, and for clarity that is just an example of how diverse the city is.
White British people make up a minority of Londoners - 45%. More than 40% of the city's population were born overseas, and 300 languages are spoken on streets and playgrounds.
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
Haven't been to a more diverse city than London.
Toronto is Canada's largest city not only with ethnic diversity from over 200 countries but unlike most other cities in the world including the US, Toronto's ethnic minorities (correction ethnic majority) live and work together side by side. They are no really black or Latino neighborhoods. There are little pockets in the city like Little India, China town and Little Italy where initial immigrants settled initially in the cities infancy... but for the most part you will find an Indian family living next to a Greek family next to an Iranian family next to a Korean family etc. Now that's true diversity in harmony!
Statistically speaking. Toronto is the most culturally diverse city in the world. Not only with more than 50% immigrants, but immigrants from more countries and speaking more different languages than any other country in the world. (Yes it's possible for a city to have 40%+ immigrants, but if those immigrants are primarily from 5-10 other countries, that's not diversity.)
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
Over the summer I went here. I would not be surprised if I saw every race while I was there. There were all sorts of exotic restaurants. - Mono
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.
Los Angeles is like a giant globe, integrated into may districts with different people and different cultures. It's quite significant to witness the people who are of different background, including the Mexican communities being more prevalent in the city. It's although the worst city to even live in because I suspect some issues with the Homeless people and especially the concern for gangbanging. I appreciate visiting LA because the people are just friendly and generous
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
Paris is so small yet filled with so much diversity. Way better than any other cities in the world. its also a beautiful place with so much history unlike new york
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
The other list sites ignore Chicago because they're biased, ignorant, and just don't get it. Chicago has been very diverse for 100+ years. The people of the world know a good thing when they see this WCC.
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
My guy putin
Should be in the top. I travel a lot and have never been to as place as diverse as Amsterdam. And it feels so natural.
~50% foreign origin with 178 different nationalities (~800k total)
Many people here. Japanese, Italians, Lebanese, Portuguese, Armenians, Chinese, Koreans, Irish, British, Greeks you name it. So many ethnic groups here. Name any of these and you’ll find at least one of these groups in the streets of São Paulo.
It is a beautiful multi-cultural city
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
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
So many neighborhoods for minorities like Little Greece, Little Portugal, Chinatown and even a Gay Village. - PolishGuy
Very diverse. Chinese, Mexicans, Italians, Germans, Greeks and so many more ethnicities have a presence here.
Vancouver is one of the most Diverse cities in the WORLD. With many different languages, cultures, and religions. Vancouver is not only diverse, but also very accepting.
People clearly don't know Houston... It should be right up there with NYC. Largest Vietnamese and Indian populations. Let alone every nation is represented here.
Houston is the fourth largest city in the US, and home to a huge foreign born population.
Slightly better than Arlington
IF NYS IS THE MOST DIVERSE IN THE CITY, THEN HOUSTON SHOULD BE FIRST
Why do people always have something bad to say about South Africa.Johannesburg is one of the world's most diverse cities.
One of the most currupt city in Africa, smoking of weed and criminals
This should be the top choice. Diversity isn't 70% white European people like those other choices are.
Kuala Lumpur is best
Having travelled to many of the cities in the list, I find KL to be the most multicultural I've seen so far. Any western city is nothing in comparison.
Beautiful, diverse, livable, egalitarian with a hipster DNA- this city is an ongoing love affair for a world traveler.
How is Mumbai DIVERSE? EVERYONE IS Indian
Though dirty, has Bollywood and a decent city sights
Best mall ever!
I think karachi is more diverse in south asia and unfortunately its not in the list.
It's pretty diverse
San Diego is also extremely diverse as it is close in proximity to Los Angeles, many people end up visiting and staying south of LA.
Delhi is diverse in history, modernization, culture,food, weather
This photo symbolises Birmingham.
HOW is Mexico CITY diverse? IT"S IN Mexico. EVERYONE IS Mexican
We've got the lot
Luxembourg probably has the most foreign people in the EU, if not in the entire world. In a town of approx. 19000 people we have over 190 nationalities.. 'enough said
If you've been there it is a very diverse place.
