Singapore is still the most expensive city in the world to live in, according to a London-based think-tank the Economist Intelligence Unit Survey that rates place on the cost of daily necessities.
Meanwhile, Paris 1s the second most expensive city jointly with Zurich, with Hong Kong in fourth place, Oslo in fifth, Geneva in the sixth, and Seoul in seventh.
The report noted that Copenhagen becomes the world’s eighth most expensive city, while currency appreciation means Tel Aviv rose from thirty-fourth place five years ago to 9th today.
Notably, no American cities featured in the top ten, although New York is 13th and Los Angeles is 14th.
