World cities with the highest (and lowest) cost of living in 2018
Which one would you be able to afford?
When choosing to move somewhere, the first thing you do is figure out how much you're going to need. Calculating cost of living is tricky, since the variables are endless and different for each individual. But Mercer has compared some of the variables that affect expatriates to rank cities by cost of living when working abroad. This gallery also includes estimated costs of rent, a restaurant meal, and monthly utilities, based on information listed on Expatistan and Numbeo. It's important to note that many cities make the list because finding accommodation as a foreigner in a safe area can be expensive, especially in countries affected by conflict and violence.
Starting with the ranking of the most expensive, check out the gallery for the most and least expensive cities for expats.
