The World's Most Expensive Cities

A survey ranks the world's most expensive cities based on cost of living.

"In a move that will be no surprise to Londoners, the capital has officially overtaken New York to become the second most-expensive city in the Western world. Rising costs of accommodation and transport helped to propel London from 10th to seventh most-pricey city on the planet, a survey shows today...Tokyo has replaced Hong Kong as the world's most expensive city. Moscow is in second place because the city is very expensive for foreign workers."
