The 25 best cities in the world to be a millennial in 2017, according to new research

Choosing where to look for work, especially if you're planning to move from your hometown and where you studied, is a big decision. 

Apartment hunting site Nestpick, compiled the 'Millennial Cities Ranking' - rating locations across the world based on how desirable they are to millennials. 

They scored cities on many factors: from affordability of housing and job opportunities, to LGBT friendliness and the price of a beer. 

Amsterdam came out on top, with three UK cities: London, Manchester and Bristol, included in the top 25. The first UK city to make the list doesn't feature until number 16, though.
