Top most expensive cities in the world

Top most expensive cities in the world

Unsurprisingly, publications like the Times, the Telegraph and many more have come up with a Top most expensive cities in the world. The results are not always identical, so without putting the cities in an order, we are going to expose those places where the costs of living and those of real estate are skyrocketing.

Paris, the capital city of France, is one of the winners of this “competition”. A herald of democracy, the republic and love, displaying symbols like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and Versailles, Paris is the most visited city in the world. Unsurprisingly, it is also one of the most expensive. 1 million dollars here are only enough to buy 50 sqm, so you might reconsider the idea of moving to Paris to lead a bohemian life here. Nevertheless, private transport is more or less accessible in town compared to public transportation, so we recommend looking up Paris airport transfers.

The capital city of Norway, Oslo, is another ridiculously expensive city to live in. Especially if you are a McD lover. Here, you can buy a burger and some fries for more than 15 dollars. Driving is a bit of a luxury here as well, with gas prices being around 13 dollars per gallon.

Zurich and Geneva in Switzerland are counted among the most expensive cities in the world. It’s clear that the country of bankers is not the most accessible place to live in. One beer (or coffee) in a pub in Zurich can cost over 6 dollars.

They call it “The Big Apple”; they sing songs about it and they produce dozens of movies about its life every year. We are, of course, talking about New York City. Home to the Statue of Liberty, Times Square and the amazing Hudson River promenade, “the city that never sleeps” might as well be the most expensive city in the world – no matter! People will keep on coming to visit or move here in hopes of attaining the American dream. You can rent a car in New York to avoid traveling by the crowded public transport.
