The World's Most Expensive Cities For Expats

world's most expensive cities

 

 

 

 

To find the world cities that are costliest for expatriates, Mercer, a global research firm that advises multinational firms on the price of relocating employees, studied 214 urban centers where international firms do business. They compared the costs of over 200 everyday items that have broad international appeal. Thanks to a depreciated dollar, no U.S. cities made the list this year. Three African cities that Mercer added to its survey scored highly.

Who ever made this list should be shot to make sure they can't procreate. Reatarded.

↑It's actually spelled 'retarded'.

This is indeed a very good piece of information as this would be of a very good use to many to decide upon a good place and so if you take the necessary precautions and search over the Internet you can easily come across a lot of coupons for this. The coupons would indeed reduce the cost to a very good extent.

Well, maybe I', 'reateardteaded' but if you don't include Oslo in this list, you got it wrong - it must surely be one of the most expensive places on the planet.

And actually, you can live pretty decently in Luanda, Angola for a lot less.

As far as this is a short listed names of places it is a very good one but the things that there has been some very beautiful places missing from the list. So, this will without a doubt prove to be a very good thing to have some good benefits to not further look for a short listed list just adding some places will do.

Thanks a lot for this useful information! I hope one day I can visit these great cities and experience how to live in this expensive cities.
