Yet another survey in relation to travel, or more precisely living and working overseas. The Worlds most expensive places for expats to live…..
I have never looked at this survey before, believing that Sydney must be at the top, or close to it. But no. Sydney fails to even make the top 10, as does any Australian city.
The number one pricey place for expats to live is Hong Kong, where it costs an average of US$7.80 for a coffee and US$128 for a pair of jeans. Hong Kong leapfrogged the regular title holder of “The Most Expensive Place for Expats to Live” – Luanda, Angola. Who now stand second in the survey.
For those interested in all of the cities which make up the top 10. In order of expensiveness they are:
- Hong Kong
- Luanda, Angola
- Zurich, Switzerland
- Tokyo, Japan
- Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo
- Shanghai, China
- Geneva, Switzerland
- N’Djamena, Chad
- Beijing, China
