Singapore remains first among cities in Asia for quality of living, with its infrastructure securing top spot worldwide, according to the human resources consulting firm Mercer.
But great disparities in the quality of living still persist on the continent as indicated by the vast disparity in rankings between cities in developed and developing countries, the New York-based firm said.
While Singapore ranked 25th for overall quality of living -- European centres led by Vienna dominated the top 10 -- the city-state edged Munich and Frankfurt for the world's best infrastructure, based on supply of electricity, drinking water, telecom services, public transport, traffic congestion, and the availability of international flights.
