Cities like Paris and Dubai topped the list for their resilient recovery as the world fought through the COVID-19 pandemic. Their easing of travel restrictions along with a "value-driven" tourism economy boosted them to the top of the list, according to the researchers.

The index did acknowledge challenges like red hot skyrocketing inflation and bad economic conditions that were made worse by the warn on Ukraine which slowed the speed of recovery after the pandemic's strongest point.

The Americans held the third-largest number of cities in the index.
