Hmm im thinking more or less a correction from pre-covid times? I think 15 is more of an appropriate ranking for SF. 11 was quite inflated.

I find Melbourne to be the oddest one out of these given it not being a capital city nor a megacity.

I reckon these are by metropolitan areas and if either of these consider San Francisco and San Jose as a single entity, then I think the Randstad should be as well, and that should definitely place within the top ten.

I think Melbourne is odd too. Reading the report it seems it is on the back of popularity with international students. It is actually growing faster than Sydney, as much because of somewhat cheaper property prices than anything. Not far from overtaking Sydney in size.

I also wouldn't bet against Brisbane growing a lot more in the next decade or two, especially now with the recent announcement that it will be hosting the 2032 Olympic Games. That will drive a lot of investment into that area, as well as the Gold Coast, which is already Australia's 6th largest city.

Brisbane has been growing fast for a long time (even by Australian Standard, which is quick by first world standards), as such rapid growth would nothing new to any of us really. The Olympics are actually been shared primarily between Brisbane, The Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, they are building "Athletes Villages" In all 3 cities.

I live about 2km from the Gabba, which is the existing AFL/Cricket venue which will become the main Olympic stadium. As such Highrise development has been ongoing in that area for maybe a decade before Brisbane even got the Olympics, and an underground rail station is been built right next door to it.

Brisbane/Gold Coast/Sunshine Coast is currently home to just over 3.6 million people, even at normal growth projections that is going to be about 4.5 million by 2032.

Having said that, the area is not going to overtake Melbourne in terms of population or economic importance any time soon,

The list shows the United Kingdom in the top. Well it deserve to be in the 1st as per the world tourism ranking. Park City Grand Plaza Kensington is one of the budget hotel in Kensington supporting the tourism in London.
