These are the world’s ten best cities in 2021

According to international media brand Time Out, world-famous San Francisco has been crowned the ‘world’s best’ city to visit in 2021. Surveying around 27,000 global city dwellers to narrow down the top 10 list, Time Out considered everything from nightlife, cultural highlights, sense of community and even the way the COVID-19 pandemic was handled. Environmental initiatives, commitment to activism and overall friendliness were also examined. 

Time Out applauded San Francisco’s citizens for finding ways to support each other during strict shutdowns. The city’s transition to outdoor dining due to the pandemic is set to become permanent, with Time Out describing it as one big outdoor party. But San Francisco is just one location on this list as there remain 9 other global gems one can explore and be assured of having a delightful experience. 

Caroline McGinn, Time Out’s global editor in chief stated that ‘this year’s list of the best cities in the world shines a spotlight on cities that adapted during a time where the key factors that make these metropolises the place to be – fun, culture and socialising – were largely off the table.’ 

The cities concerned are Amsterdam, Netherlands in second place, Manchester, UK in third and Copenhagen, Denmark in fourth. Another USA city, New York follows suit at fifth place with Montreal, Canada coming in 6th. The list is rounded up by Prague in Czech Republic, Tel Aviv in Israel, Porto in Portugal and finally Tokyo, Japan.

I mean, everybody misses Michael, but Michael is here. Different, but he’s here and that gives us strength, I find.”

Moving around Malta’s roads safely with Bolt’s e-scooters

 - Local - Sep 9 2021 SHARE ON:


Malta’s roads are notorious for reckless driving and leaving vehicles parked where they, well, shouldn’t be. However, as we try to move towards more sustainable modes of travelling to protect our environment and ourselves, Bolt Scooters can offer a possible alternative. And with this big shift in navigation come various safety procedures which can make travel easier, safer and more accessible. 





Light and fun adventures!

The first true benefit of using e-scooters is their light weight and lack of space they occupy. Venturing with one of these vehicles ensures that streets and public spaces are not congested. This can make roads safer for the disadvantaged such as wheelchair users or people pushing prams. Delivery drivers who have had their hands full delivering your food during the pandemic can also benefit from this safety!





The Art of Parking your Bolt Scooter

Try to park your scooter safely by thinking of it as an art piece. Instead of creating a nuisance by parking it on private property or even blocking a path way, an elegantly settled scooter against an available rack or designated parking zone will not only safeguard other citizens but also highlight a space in a somewhat aesthetically pleasing collection of scooters ready for use. 





Scooters are enjoyed by all!

We can help reduce road incidents by respecting each other’s time and mental state. We are all sharing a street, a road, a passageway, together! If everyone is still fuming about finding their scooter recklessly thrown onto some road side, people are more prone to traffic altercations. The art of parking your scooter can avoid all this and create a better travel experience. 





A green future ahead!

Finally, the scooters themselves are our road (pun intended) towards greener, better-connected cities. The prospect of Bolt scooters should be encouraging for several reasons. We’re protecting the environment and communicating through state of the art technology how to have safer and easier modes of transportation!
