The most expensive cities worldwide - 2016

Expat cost of living ranking

Tokyo is once again the most expensive city for expats

The Japanese capital is back on the top spot it had occupied during years until 2012.

The yen fluctuations had it down the podium and they now send it up again, thus overtaking Hong Kong. What made the difference is the yen revaluation in June.

Hong Kong is now the world’s 2nd most expensive city after only a few months on the top spot.

Luanda, Angola’s capital, is now 3rd, after having fallen from top spot in March 2015 and even left the top 15 in March 2016.
