Reading in the Economist last night, I discovered that the most expensive city in the world is Luanda, in Angola.
Bit of a surprise as I expected it to be Tokyo.
Anyway of more interest:
A meal $100
Hotel room $500-$600
Car & driver hire for a day $500
Monthly rent on poor to average 2-bedroom flat $7,000 or decent flat $15,000
60% of the population live on less than $2 a day.
London wasn’t even in the top 30 – the year before it was in the top 10.
