The world’s windiest city, Wellington has many claims to fame, including being the capital city of New Zealand. It’s also a great city to live in, with the Global Liveability Rankings putting it in fourth place alongside Tokyo while Deutsche Bank has also ranked it as the best place in the world to live as well as the least polluted.

It’s a young and diverse city with a strong focus on culture and creative innovation, which makes it an exciting place to live or visit and if you like coffee, even better as it’s got more cafes per capita than even New York. Wellington ranked fifth in the world for personal safety and with its three universities all in the top 3% in the world, it’s no wonder international students love the coolest little capital.
